One of the things bloggers find difficult to cope with, is the fact that their site is not perfect.
Most of us are perfectionists, especially when it comes to the child of our creativity. Our site should be flawless, full of perfect articles, with embedded perfect pictures, saying perfect things.
The truth is much more different than that though.
Every human is imperfect. We constantly change and grow, we learn and forget, we are literally a new person every passing second as Harmonia Philosophica has explained more than once in various philosophical contexts.
How do you expect your blog to be perfect?
Being perfect was never the goal in the first place.
The goal is to expose your thoughts to the cosmos. To let out your thoughts and give others the opportunity to get to know them. Perhaps even reply back and establish a community wandering about the same things.
A blog is a window that exposes your soul to the world.
Trying to believe that what others see through that window needs to be perfect is simply a denial of your very nature. No matter how much you try to make things perfect, there will always be things that could be done better, small spelling mistakes, broken links or missing images.
Don’t get me wrong. I am not saying that you must not do your best to have a perfect site. I am just emphasizing the fact that if this is the first and only thing you care about you will indeed have a perfect unpublished site…
Blogging is about letting go.
Blogging is about having fun.
And who can have fun while trying to play everything to perfection?
Love what you do!
Your blog will ALWAYS be imperfect!
That is what makes is so perfect…
