    If try to convey a message to the readers through our writing, does it really leave an impact on the readers?

        I think we all should write with some message in our writings.  This may have an impact on someone somwhere. What do you say?

          We can never know fully, the impact that we have on other people, either in writing, conversation, simple remarks, or deeds. The Buddhists teach us that attachment leads to suffering, and that we should practise detachment from all expectations. To perform an act, and then let go and let the Universe do its work. If you have some positive feedback then you already have the encouragement that you seek.

    Having an impact on readers is not a matter of being conspicuous about it, i.e., "Reader,I want to have an impact on you." Let the impact be organic---coming out of your topic, what details you choose to develop it, the way you organize the details, and the vigorous vocabulary you use to express your ideas.
    If you select topics that will be of interest to a group of readers (one topic does not necessarily fit all), and you do a good job of providing useful information or effectively expressed opinions, you'll have an impact. Sometimes readers will tell you; other times they won't.
    But keep writing, trying to "sharpen" the point of your "computer pencil" each time. You'll get feedback that will help you assess how you're doing.

    The very essence of writing is to convey a message. 
    The skill in writing comes from how well the effect of that conveyance is taken by the reader.
    The power of writing comes from finding the mix between the heart and gaining the desired effect of the message. hmm
