Thanks for the great feedback! This post is for my personal blog @ vakil.org
BTW, what do you think of starting an opening with a personal story?
I had a post for Sufi Comics on theme of “letting go” and “forgiveness”. In the opening I wanted to tell a personal story with the hope the reader would relate themselves with the story & thereby create empathy.
The reason to take this approach was that if I want the post to have impact, the story has to be intense (like a divorce, getting robbed, cheated). It’s difficult to say “You went through a divorce” OR “You just got cheated in business” ’cause I seems too specific / personal and not sure if it is true for the reader, and felt better it’ll work better with telling my own personal story.
What do you think?
