I saw a Pinterest pin that about made me hyperventilate: it was the 39 things to do before launching a blog.
I read through the list. It's not a bad list. It's just overwhelming.
This list went through the ways to make it polished and perfect right from the start. While that's expected for a big-name company, the whole list to me felt like voluntary chains.
Being prepared with perfect plans is good for a sting operation. Also for building a housing development or going on a deep-sea dive.
But just writing a blog? It doesn't have to be perfect to be legible or meaningful.
Had that list been stuck in my face before I started this blog, I would have given up right then. It's too discouraging for something that is, at the core, very simple: writing.
Sometimes you just have to start.
Do you want to write? Then write! What is stopping you?
