Sharing more and writing more often

Desk with Laptop, Coffee and pencils

For the last few years I didn't write much on this blog. Read how and why I'm going to change this now.

Reasons for not writing

Well, there are obvious reasons, like laziness, I guess. And a few more in my case.

Lack of topics

Then, I always thought, for most of the topics I wanted to write about, somebody else already took care of. While this was probably true, there always is another angle you could look at things or another insight I might have. So why not start sharing something?

Lack of time

Also, I just didn't have enough time. Or so I thought. Actually, just getting started and write something instead of waiting until I would have time to write a full-blown article makes you have enough time for almost everything in the end. Even more in-depth, detailled stories are possible. It might only take a bit longer.

Fear of criticism

Amongst time and thinking I didn't have something to write about I was also afraid of criticism, I guess. Probably, I still am. But I accepted that it is part of the knowledge sharing thing. And an important part of learning. So, yeah!

The Goals

So I set some goals to myself:

1. Publish at least one article per month.

2. Work on at least one article per day for around 10-15 minutes.

3. Build up a pipeline of roughly aligned topics to write on to make #1 and #2 easier to succeed.

These goals will eventually enable me to get more used to writing, publishing and sharing knowledge.

And it might help me as well finding knowledge gaps.
