Nobody cares if you can’t dance well. Just get up and dance.
When I wrote in Blogging Is About Writing on Problogger that readers will forgive writing mistakes if the blogger is passionate and knowledgeable about their subject matter, a lot of people stood up and applauded virtually. They loved the idea that you don’t have to write perfectly to blog, but it helps.
Is it necessary for every blog to be perfect and have a purpose? Honestly, like the quote above, you do not have to dance well, you just have jump in and dance.
It’s your blog. Do with it what you want. If it feels good, do it. Party hearty! Party on, Garth!
Must You Blog? Then Blog
I’m still in Israel as I write this post, and I’ve met a lot of old friends who listen to me talk about blogging and WordCamp Israel. After a few minutes, they lean forward and say, “I’m probably the most ignorant person in all of Israel. Forgive me. What is a blog?”
I explain that a blog is a website that isn’t a static billboard but a conversation on the web.
“Should I get one? Do I need one?”
