This blog has been kinda dead for a long time now. I've been thinking about why I stopped writing. I mean, I really enjoy writing blog posts. I enjoy writing and communicating thoughts in general.
Every time I have been about to write a post but decided not to do it, it has been because a thought along the lines of "is this really an original post? is this valuable to a reader? isn't this just me repeating obvious and/or already known advice for startup founders?" etc.
This thinking is deeply rooted in one of my personal values, which is to not contribute to the ocean of useless opinionated babble that makes up a lot of blogs, social media, and the internet in general. I want to produce quality stuff, even if it is my own little blog that not that many people besides myself care about.
I don't want to write opinions just because it is a good way to get attention and an easy way to build a blog post. I as a person do not have very strong opinions about things. I have strong values. Not strong opinions. People who are too die hard on an opinion usually suffer from that. Their strong stance prohibits them from changing their mind and using the "best" opinions in their daily work to create the best possible product or impact. By communicating strong opinions to others you cement them in yourself.
So anyways, I want to start writing again. My tactic to get that to happen will be to lower my own bar for quality and originality of blog posts. Because I have also realized that the trick to writing a few really good and valuable blog posts each year is to write a lot of blog posts in general.
Also, I think I will start writing a little bit more broadly than just about entrepreneurship. I'll allow myself to write about whatever I am thinking about at the moment (but sure, that usually involves entrepreneurship anyway :).
