I don’t know what direction I want to take this in. Do I want it to be a personal blog? A professional blog? A stream of my own thoughts? My god, all of the possibilities. Where to begin?
I had a conversation with my sister the other day pushing her to start a Youtube channel. Excuses like “but I don’t know what to talk about” and “where do I start” flowed like water. Where do you start? “Anywhere”, I said. “Iterate as you go”.
I’ve been sitting on getting my website redone for a couple weeks now — on blogging for months. It’s been one of those things that I’d like to do, I just didn’t have the activation energy to do it.
Back up. Activation energy? No. I think the better word is “fear”. I didn’t put this up, not because I don’t have the know-how. I was (am?) afraid of putting something out there, afraid of not knowing what I was doing.
Well it’s probably best I take my own advice. I don’t need to know what I’m doing or where I want this to go. I just need to start.
So, whenever you’re thinking about doing something new or trying something, it’s simple.
