Basically: Why, Who, and The Bottom Line

Audio Version of this Post

For my own purposes, I began to question this blog and my involvement as its sole writer.

The following questions, simple as they are, lead me into such a reverie that I felt it necessary to share and then answer them:

  • Why do I write blog posts for alixandercourt.com
  • Who is my audience
  • And where will this blog be monetized?

Why I write for alixandercourt.com?

  • Practice
  • Self-edification
  • Reflection

Who is my audience?

Those who seek to empower their life with knowledge, habits, and then technology.

Below is an apt comparison, I write for people on the right.

Virgin Losers vs Chad Improvers

Where will it be monetized?

  • Book Sales

UPDATE: I am halfway through implementing my pen edits for my first novel and I anticipate having it available for purchase by March 15th, 2022

Update: the book has seen an editor and is being read by a private audience. While I wanted a march 15th debut, this process is not to far from being complete. The cover illustration is nearing its final draft and we are excited release more information soon.

So with that, I hope you and I both have a clearer picture of why I keep writing, who I am writing to/for, and where this blog is headed.

How to move the plot of your life forward

The reason that I started studying literature, or books in general, as a young man was simply because that’s just what you did under my parents’ roof.

Now as an adult I read because reading is the fastest way to make marked changes in my life and my understanding of life. It is as necessary to read as it is to go to the gym, go to work, and spend time with my family.

So why do I read mostly non-fiction? Because that’s where the good stuff is.

Okay so you don’t like non-fiction, I get it. It doesn’t have the usual plot and character development you want out of a book. Would you reconsider non-fiction if I told you something that would blow your mind? Of course you would.

You are the character that develops when you read non-fiction, and as you read the plot of your life thickens in light of new information.

Don’t believe me? Ask your self this, when the character of book is faced with some incredible insight, like they cracked open the mystery of the bad guy or whatever, does the story just stop there? No. They go on to take that information and turn it into something useful, like saving the world.

So what I am saying is, your life is in peril. You need to crack open the mystery. You are the only one who can and no one can do it for you. So where to start? Try this here, or here, or maybe even this here.
