    Rebecca – great post. I have had the same experience as you describe at the end of your post: sometimes, the writing that I think is the weakest ends up getting the most praise/traction from others, and the writing that I think is the strongest ends up generating only modest interest. Perhaps the lesson is that we should just have confidence in our writing, and be quicker to hit publish and let people comment…

      Will, thanks for your comment. You make an excellent point about the importance of not hesitating to hit publish, and then, in a sense, let the readers decide. Also, the bottom line is that we never know what someone else may really need to read, so no sense potentially depriving someone of what they need, particularly if the purpose of our content is to serve (rather than impress) others.

        I like that point too about being quicker to hit publish and letting people comment.

    I enjoyed the 100 Ideas for Blog Posts exercise that you introduced. It was a great way to get the ideas flowing! When I feel stuck, I also like to write about how stuck I am – it seems to free me to be myself. This was a great post Rebecca! (Side note: Yesterday I commented from my phone but the comment didn’t seem to go through. It’s probably an issue with my phone.)
