I’ve moved Writoscope to shared hosting, because managing a VPS was starting to eat into my time. And I realise that I’ve put off a lot of writing because I felt I really didn’t have much to say about the topic. But a highlight on Smarter Than You Think, Clive Thompson’s new book, has got me thinking.
Having your own Web site is powerful, but comparatively few people are willing to do the work. They face the blank-page problem. What should I say? Who cares what I say?
A lot of my mental writing block has to do with fear of being judged, not with fear of having nothing (useful) to say. So I’m going to try to push through that block, and start writing anyway. As usual, your feedback and comments are most welcome.
