Second-guessing ourselves
Posted by Troll Racials are Overpowered [HTML][XML][PERM][FULL] on 10 August 2012, 4:50 pm
I've noticed that we as bloggers have a tendency to second-guess ourselves.  We have an idea or opinion and write it down, but before we hit publish we get all worried.  Did I forget a side?  A perspective?  Am I being balanced and objective or just claiming to have the absolute truth and moral high ground?

It's all quite discouraging to see that.  I say we should just go ahead and put out our opinions, right or wrong.  Just like relatives at a Thanksgiving dinner.  Excluding Canada, because they celebrate Thanksgiving wrong and are too polite.

Though I don't actually have much evidence for this.  There is me and my ten million drafts.  Probably less.  I should confirm that figure before I post this.  Sometimes I chat with Syl and she tells me that I second-guess myself too much, but that's probably just her trying to trick me.  You know how those Europeans are, all pretending that they don't speak English no matter how loud I talk and other things like that.

I don't want to just jump out on a limb and act as if my experience is common or representative.  This needs more analysis, more thinking, maybe some other perspectives, such as people who think we're underthinking, or single or triple-guessing.

This made so much sense before I started writing it.  Note to self, don't hit publish until you've given it a few days to work out the bugs.
