I was this close to publishing a post entirely different from this one. I had written it the other day; I flipped open my laptop about 10 minutes ago, read over the post and…it sucked. I mean, it seemed genius when I wrote it the other day, but it sucked.

Two lessons here:

  1. Whenever possible, give your posts 24 hours to marinate and reread before you publish them.
  2. Don’t be afraid to trash them altogether.

I’m a better writer and blogger for chucking that crap piece on the scrap heap. You will be, too.

    With havin so much content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism
    or copyright violation? My website has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help stop content from being ripped off? I’d
    truly appreciate it.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like
    yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web smart so I’m not 100% positive.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you
