“you won’t focus on the results of each post, instead, you’ll find satisfaction in what you’ve written”

I think this is wise advice, both for becoming a better writer and in building trust with an audience over the long term. Not every post can go viral. Some will land flat. But writing for results is a losing game. No one likes to feel manipulated, and readers have better bs detectors than writers often give them credit for. If YOU put out work you feel good about, the right readers--whether a millions, hundreds, or a handful--will connect with it.... eventually :-)
