I am the anti-reader.

This is a guest post by the fantastic Jun Loayza in response to my Anti Writer post

I started my blog because I love to write.  I want to express my emotions, feelings, desires, dreams, and wants.  I want people to care about me and know what I’m doing.

But for some reason, I don’t like to read.

I don’t have the patience to sit through a 900+ word blog post about something I already know.  What, you write about personal development?  Oh, so I’m supposed to be confident when I make a public speech?  Please… do me a favor and teach me something I don’t know.

Don’t speak in generalities; I have no patience for them.  Give me actionable steps.  Give me advice that I can implement tonight and see results tomorrow.  Don’t just regurgitate news; add a twist of flavor that is unique.

I love to build relationships; I love to build community.

So I do read.  I subscribe, comment, email, and connect with people who I admire.  I read, not because I like to, but because it is who I am.

I want to build a relationship with you, so I’ll read your blog.  If I like it, I will subscribe.  If I’m not impressed, I will reach out anyway because as a fellow blogger, you deserve to be commended for putting your ideas, thoughts, and opinions out for the public to see.

I will continue to read because I want you to read what I have to say.

I am the anti-reader.
