I have two main goals as a blogger. I build relationships as part of my business, and I am teaching marketing. That’s it. I am writing my blog posts to make people think, and I’m trying to be creative and unique, to stand out from the crowd and to make people remember my messages.
I am not always telling the truth
This means that I’m not always telling the truth. I’m writing stories, and I’m focusing on the message and that there’ll be some element of learning. The stories are different.

The message was this; show, don’t tell.
I wrote a different post about love and lust. I called it; she turns me on. It didn’t happen. I made it up. On the other hand, the message was clear and I received a lot of feedback that it was entertaining.

The best feedback I get, is when someone tells me that they’ve been thinking about one of my posts for days or weeks, and that they finally got the message.
I want my posts to be of value. I want you to read them, think about them, but it’s more important that you can use what you’ve read – turn the messages into something that’ll work for you.
I’ve been thinking about adding a sentence at the bottom of my posts, a sentence saying that it’s based on a true story.
The reason I’m explaining what I’m doing, is that I’ve received a lot of feedback during the past few months. People have asked me; what’s happening in your life? I can assure you and them, that nothing new is going on. I just enjoy writing …
Is it ok for me to not always tell the truth in my posts, as long as it’s entertaining, it makes you think and you’ll end up learning something? And, what about you, do you always tell the truth in your posts?
