The thrill of online publishing

There’s a little bit of a thrill in publishing online. Thinking and writing out loud makes you vulnerable to criticism. But if you ship something new every day, you’ll get better at connecting with people and clarifying your ideas.

Sometimes it’s better to be done and then be perfect. So many people make excuses for not starting a blog or writing a book because they don’t think they’re good enough. What they’re really saying is that they don’t feel passionate enough to do the work. Get started and test your voice with a few tweets!

Why go unnoticed? Why hold back creative expression? The World Wide Web is an incredible opportunity to entertain opinions and thoughts. The same goes for publishing pictures and video; we all have cameras in our pockets that allow us to tell great stories. Remember:  the best camera is the one you have with you.

Capture the world and tell us about it. Publish half-done and get feedback. Make that shitty rough draft. Keep creating until you strike a chord.
