This past Monday, I made some friends over on Google+. I was given a challenge of writing one article in 1000 words about how current technology blogs are misleading readers and hurting their personal economy towards success through technology.

Within the course of a few hours, I got over 65 +1s, 30+ comments, and 9+ shares. I received great comments such as, “Very well written” and “you’re extremely talented” and “can’t wait for more.”
Not to many moons ago, I was looking to find my voice in writing. Having several writing coaches, a lot to say especially around my passions, was unemployed and my blogs were being ripped off continuously by the big content celebrities out there. I somehow caught the eyes of the big wigs in the industry, but they didn’t want me to be a part of their crew for various politics. They felt stealing my strategies, content, and ideas from a distance were enough to make them continue to look good.
Moral of the Story:
No one can steal your voice. If folks try to suppress your voice, it’s because they are insecure. If they try to steal your content for their own big bucks, they can’t steal your voice, your genius, or finesse and your essence. For all you bloggers trying to make it, and feel discouraged, don’t. You’ll be surprised that there are people out there hungry for your work. Your competition can try and slow you down. But they are the hopeless, scared wimps that you won’t have to worry about when you concentrate on YOU, YOUR VOICE, and YOUR SINCERE WRITING reaching YOUR AUDIENCE.
The rest of the audience will find out these big wigs don’t know what they are talking about. Soon, they will begin to bow to you, and you bow back with humility to your supporters, and a cheeky smile to your competitors.
To the rest of the world: welcome to the technology writing revolution. It’s time we start getting some good quality content to chew on again.
