So I really struggled with cranking out that last blog post. It took 3 or 4 writing sessions of writer’s block, revising and editing, before publishing but I made a promise to myself that I would be more consistent with my blogging. As writers we can sometimes paralyze ourselves trying to write the perfect blog, article, the perfect chapter, or conclusion to an already great piece that we judge ourselves way too harshly, and the end result of course is no blog post for the week. As a professional blogger I live by the philosophy that it’s better to have tried and failed early enough to get back up than it is to have never tried at all. In the end, at our funerals when it’s all said and done I’d rather leave this earth knowing that I took the leap of faith when it counted, even when it meant falling flat on my face a few times than to leave here knowing that I played it safe on the edge of the cliff my whole life, afraid to jump. If we really get honest with ourselves, I don’t think any of us wants to die afraid. In fact, nothing scares me more than the thought of dying afraid.
Sometimes a short but powerful piece can go a lot farther to inspire the reader to action, than a long dragged out full-of-fluff piece ever will.
