Why I REFUSED to start writing a blog

September 1, 2011

I talked myself out of starting this blog. I did. I told myself, “That’s too much pressure to appear smart and funny. I’d feel pressure to generate consistent, meaningful content. I know I’d be tempted to check ‘my stats’ every day. Resist the urge Mark! Close the window and DON’T click on the start your blog by clicking here button”.

So I REFUSED to start a blog . . . until now.

Why start a blog? After all, the danger in writing a public blog is displaying my weaknesses and ignorance. My vanity and pride will surely try to overtake me along the way.

However, I’m starting this blog because I want to learn. Forcing myself to articulate what I’m learning and having others contribute is the reward. So my goal is that I will become better leader by interacting with you from time to time.

Today, I refused to listen to me (or at least my fears) and started a blog. Now, if I can just resist the urge to check my stats until I post again on Monday.
