*Tap* *Tap* Is This Thing On?

The last post on this blog was in October 30th 2022, which as of today, was fifteen months ago. Fifteen! It’s been a moment.

When I sit down to write a blog post, I want it to be the perfect blog post – insightful, captivating, beautiful. I’ll spend days researching and brainstorming, writing and rewriting, consulting references, and endlessly polishing. I think what comes out in the end is a nice product, something that is worthy of sharing with others.

But there is a problem. I rarely end up posting anything at all.

I believe this is a common problem that most writers have in the beginning. The desire to not just write anything. To write something amazing! Plus it’s scary to put your ideas out there for all to see. What if I say something half-thought out or misinformed, and end up looking like a fool?

But I’m not going to become a better writer unless I write more often, and at my current pace that is going to happen… never.

It’s time for a change.

I’m going to start publishing to this blog more frequently. But it’s going to be more raw and unpolished than before. My goal is to sit down with an idea, write a post, and publish it – all in a relatively short sitting. I also want to be more open in sharing my personal struggles and failures.

The thought of putting my raw, unpolished thoughts out on the internet is intimidating, but isn’t that what this blog is about after all? Embracing discomfort instead of avoiding it?

Let’s go!
