“I wrote a garbage post. I don’t feel like publishing it. What do I do?”

A question from a member of the writing community.

Here’s my advice.

1. Publish anyway. You might get laughed at or embarrassed. That’s okay. Part of the game.

2. Get data. “This did not resonate” is valuable information.

3. I don’t have anything substantial to add here. But the best practices told me that I need to include 3 points. So…

To summarize – Publish that post. You don’t judge yourself. Let the audience decide. Get data. And learn from it.
