Here’s a quick thought I just want to share with you, in case you’re wondering whether you should start a blog (or even if you’re currently blogging and are thinking you need to up your content level).
Stop thinking about it so much. Stop analyzing every single word you’ve just written. Stop holding your finger from the Publish tab. Stop trying to find that perfect phrase to say what you’re thinking. Stop giving yourself reasons not to post.
Instead, offer the one single reason why you should post – because it’s not perfect.
Raw is human. Raw is personal. Raw is exactly what you want to say at that given moment, and that makes it what you should say.
By all means, if your blog is corporate-minded and you need it to be “just so” for legal and other reasons, then do take more time and care.
But for the rest of you (and that includes me), forget the perfection. Forget the reasons not to. Your readers want your voice, not fabricated perfection.
