I think you should have a fixed position (perhaps you are eclectic) and try to convince someone, then try to change the position and think otherwise. To convince someone is to know about what they expect, some psychology required.

The best thing is to have something interesting to say. Why do you want people to read you? Do you have something interesting to say? Are you going to write a book?

Thanks for the link; To answer your question as to why i want to write, first i love beautiful text. I read almost exclusively non fiction books and on a pretty wide variety of subjects. So by beauty here i am not so much referring to the aesthetic style, but more to the way some authors seems to have such a clear flow/structure in the way they present their material, that it almost make me feel smart to read them. It happens very often that i would reread a page or a section of a book, simply because while i remember the point made and the arguments used, the flow between the arguments was so natural that it's a joy to read.So part of wanting to write is just me trying to understand that mechanic.

Secondly i think there is level of insight that one can only reach by writing consistently on subject. So i want to write first to refine my own thinking and also write well enough so other people want to read and criticize/engage my ideas. I want to use writing as a way to develop my ability to communicate complex ideas better, and also to synthesise new perspective from a related web of ideas (booth of which i think are what make a good author/writer).
