I liked this phrase not only because is short but it is concrete. I think writing what we think is a way of passing a message over somebody that is willing to read what was written. There are many, many people like us out there. Those are our niche or at least the initial one.
There are readers who like to read good articles but also there are readers who like to read stories, thoughts or simply comments. Sometimes, I think there is not good or bad content. Something that is good for one may be bad for somebody else.
I started my blog few months ago. I have written very few articles but I always get stuck at the same point... the blank page, that small piece of paper (that could be a screen now) that you see as a big monster. Every day I face the same situation and conclude that I cannot find anything to write about. Curiously, I think about many things when walking, driving or eating.
After reading your post and going to your blog, I could have a clear picture of what you are talking about. The Blank Page Monster appears when you write from the reader stand point of view and not when you write from your stand point of view; when you want to write what the reader wants to read and not when you write what you want to write.
