This is such a great post! It’s so hard to drown out the stats and just write. Look, stats have their place. But it’s certainly not in the spotlight. Authentic writing like you exhibit here — that is what deserves the spotlight.
I wrote a similar post a few months back. If you have the time, I’d love to hear your thoughts.
I think this struggle with stats is something all of us face in this space from time to time. Thanks for sharing your story!
