Matt Gemmel in On Blogs:
Whatever your blog is, and the term is so fluid as to be unhelpful at best and trivialising at worst, it’s something. The first thing you ought to do is give yourself the respect you deserve. Publishing your words online can be a daunting, exposing, soul-baring experience - I know. I’m still haunted by self-doubt before sharing certain pieces with the world. But I do believe that those pieces have value.
I finally came around catching up with Matt’s article and his point of view that “Blogs have self-esteem issues” somehow feels familiar.
Very good and inspiring article.
