Hey there, it’s Darren Rowse from ProBlogger and welcome to episode 80 of the ProBlogger podcast, where over the last few podcasts I’ve been trying to keep my podcast under three minutes. The reason that I’ve been doing that is that it’s January here in Australia. While it’s January everywhere but here in Australia, January means we all go to the beach. It’s summer holiday time, so I would want to create some podcasts that you could listen to really quickly on your summer holiday or wherever you are. If you are rugged up somewhere in the cold part of the world, you probably are at the beach, but I want to keep them short and sweet over the month of January.

Today’s podcast is another really short one but I think it’s so important. In fact, I think it’s probably one of the most important things that many bloggers need to hear. I get asked the question all the time, what should I write about when I don’t feel like I’ve got anything unique to say. You can find today’s show notes at

If you ever felt that way like you’ve got nothing unique to say, like it’s all been said before, like there are some so many other people out there who are smarter, funnier, more witty or cleverer than you, “Why would anyone listen to me?” you might be thinking. While if you have ever been feeling like that, you are not alone. I think that most bloggers have that moment in their story where they felt that way. Why would anyone listen to me? I’ve got nothing unique to say.

Here’s my encouragement to you. Nobody, nobody at all has ever lived your life before. Nobody has your story. Nobody has faced and overcome what you’ve overcome in your life. Nobody thinks in exactly the same way that you do. No one has your story. So write, but infuse writing with your story. Your story is what makes your content unique. Your story is what has never been said before. Your story is something that nobody else could ever know better than you. Your story is why anyone would listen to you. So share your story. When you’re in doubt and you feel like you’ve got nothing unique to say, come back to your story.

You can find today’s show notes at where I’ve got some further reading on storytelling. I hope you find this podcast helpful and I’ve still got 15-seconds to go so I would love to also hear your comments over on the show notes today. Thanks for listening and I will chat with you again soon.
