What exactly is going on here at screamingmisinformation.com? Honestly, I’m not really sure yet. I’ve been wanting to do something like this for several years now, but I let fear talk me out of dedicating myself to it every time. Each time I got started I would get really motivated for the first couple of weeks and then I would just let it go. I didn’t tell anyone I was writing, and I used a lot of BS excuses, questioning myself into quitting. I eventually deleted all my files and posts in a bout of total discouragement, which I regret.
What will people think? What will they say? Will I fail? What happens if I say something that really pisses someone off? What if I did something great, got a few followers who liked it and I couldn’t keep delivering good content? Will my friends think I’m stupid for doing this? What will my family think? Do I have what it takes to make a difference? Can I make the time?
Excuses suck. Self-doubt sucks.
I’m kicking excuses to the curb and going for it – for a while anyways – just to see what happens. Right now I’m going for consistency. I’m not going to obsess over every detail, agonizing over whether or not something is worthy or groundbreaking, or truly profound. My goal here in the beginning is to generate good content regularly and hope that maybe something stands out every once in a while.
