OK, I’m not thinking Men in Black where Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones come in with hip black sunglasses and flash a silver probe that erases any memory you have of them or mutating aliens.
It relates more to our writings on our blogs. Getting down on paper/text our thoughts and ideas about social media or technology or whatever focus our blog is designed for. Sometimes ideas come in a snap (like this one), while others take some time to develop. Regardless of our methods, there comes a moment where you’ve written an entire post but then ask yourself this:
Should I even publish this post?
What stops us from hitting that one button that will send our thoughts into the digital world for everyone to see? Did we not believe in our writing? Was it not engaging enough? Was it off base given our blog’s target audience?
I know I’ve hit this rut before but I want to hear from you. What makes you reconsider your thoughts and whether you should publish them or not? Can we ever stay away from second-guessing our writings? Sound off.
