💻 I know many of you write your own blogs. I’ve learned a lot about how to write from Johanna Rothman. She shares some good perspective on how to avoid perfectionism in your writing and just publish already. Read Perfection Rules in Writing? You Might Be Micromanaging Yourself

    The story on perfection rules really speaks to me. This is how I write for my blog. I just write, fix and go most of the time because I use this blog largely as a way to force myself to write daily. It’s as much an exercise for my brain as it is for publishing what I have to say. Occasionally there will be something I agonize over (in fact, I have one now) but I mainly go with it and forgive my mistakes later. It’s freeing .

      It is sort of freeing, but then I go back months or years later and find I published something that was barely coherent.

    and we thought propaganda was the invention of Herr Goebbels ;) There seem to be so many partisan and biased information sources these days it is no wonder folks disappear down rabbit holes….and then there is Facebook which seems to be all about dividing us into warring tribes

      There’s profit in dividing people.

      Frankly I am all for shutting down Facebook. Many of us were able to live through the 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s without it quite well. Mark Zukerberg can stick his morphed creation, which he defends vigorously, where the sun doesn’t shine.

        I think Facebook is in decline, so it might take care of itself.
