It’s Day 2 of a 28 Day Challenge to publish daily. I’m doing it through DareMe, where for 28 days I’ll be hosting and cheering other Daily Publishers on. We’re challenging each other to post and publish daily. Whether it’s on your own blog, newsletter, social media, or sites like Medium, Vocal, Wattpad, Substack, TikTok, Instagram or more, it’s a chance to practice in public.

Yesterday, on Day 1, I posted a short piece on Medium, about the power of walking.

Last year, I published two articles on Medium.

This year, I plan to push myself to publish more. I’m also going to vary it, trying different platforms, and perhaps, even a pen name to practice publishing fiction.

I’m excited to do this!

It’s a reminder that I CAN do hard things.
It’s a reminder that I don’t have to be perfect.

Perfectionism and the shame of procrastination as a result of it is what’s been holding me back. Worrying about all the rules, how to be perfect with all the rules, has been holding me back. To hell with rules! 

This month, I will “post and ghost” (a term I heard controversial podcast host, Joe Rogan, use as to how he keeps pushing content out there without worrying about other people’s judgements and criticisms). I will not worry if I have zero claps. I will not worry if I actually suck, or made glaring typos.

Wabi-the Eff-Sabi all the way!!!
