I’ve noticed that over the past few months, I’ve lost some steam when it comes to sharing my writing online.
After taking time for some good ‘ol fashioned introspection, I’ve realized that it’s probably because I’m afraid that I am no longer doing something worth hearing about.
I know deep down inside this isn’t necessarily true, but it’s still a valid concern nevertheless.
Back when I was freelancing full-time, I was doing something that was out of the ordinary.
Now that I’ve been working a 9-to-5 while also working for myself, I’m experiencing a relative amount of stability for the first time.
Because of this, a small part of my feels that my insight may not be as unique as it once was or that it’s not as valuable to others.
If I drown out all of the other noise, I know this is simply that insidious little voice inside my head.
Even though I’m no longer working for myself full-time, I’ve still created my own professional path and this is something I imagine others might find valuable.
The hardest part is breaking everything down in a way that makes sense and is interesting enough for others.
When it comes to creating something for someone else, quieting this voice is nearly impossible.
In fact, the more experience you gain, the quicker you realize it’s not about silencing this voice at all.
Being a professional means learning to ignore it while moving forward anyway.
