I don’t write in one place. That’s not how the Internet works. My writings are distributed across several platforms. They are not copy-pasted though, each website has its own use case.
I use Twitter to report and to bounce off some thoughts and ideas. It keeps me public. That’s where I developed my biggest audience as of today.
I write my first drafts at 200 Words a Day. The community product keeps me consistent and accountable. I structure my content in short-form posts to make my writings more modular. To me, 200 Words a Day is about atomic collaborative writing, it’s where I focus on my craft.
I’m working on a personal blog where I intend to centralize all my long-form illustrated content, for a personal branding purpose. Long-form content is where all the SEO juice is. I don’t expect people to go through my hundreds of 200 words posts: I need to curate my content to make it easily searchable.
It’s my writing funnel. From a few characters to several pages, an article is born. Sometimes it’s the contrary and a tweet is born.
A creative should not be bound to a single format. The energy should be channeled across different vessels.
