Isn’t it funny how you think that you have so much to write, and contribute to the world, and therefore you need a place to call your own. You need a blog.
So you set up a CMS, spend days getting the front just right, designing a logo, messing with color schemes and saying to yourself, “This is it. People will flock to my site to hear my opinions and the things I’ve created.” Finally you sit down to write and BAM! You get slapped in the face with writers block.
“What the hell did I want to put up here again?”, you ask yourself. Suddenly everything you wanted to write seems silly.
You had the idea to start drawing or something artistic and put those things on your blog but then you think, “I’m no artist.”
Maybe you wanted to dispel the stupid things your friends on Facebook believe by making your own counter arguments to their ridiculous ones but then you think “Ah, it wasn’t that big of a deal, I don’t want to piss anyone off.”
What if your opinion is unpopular even if well founded? What will the people at work that see your blog think? What if the interviewer for that job you really want sees your webpage (you gave it to them didn’t you?) And disagrees with something you believe and you don’t get the offer?
Internal doubts. These things hold us all back. This is a step of mine to combat them. So hold on, here goes.
