For almost two years now I have been writing here. In the dark, mostly for myself and my few loyal followers. Although everything has been out there in the public I haven't been promoting it much. I have lacked the confidence, worrying about the reactions of a wider audience.
yesterday I came across an article about a guy who has started to do something similar. But instead of doing it in silence he went ahead creating this platform where others can join and write their own stories too. And not just write, but get the exposure and feedback from other likeminded people.
Maybe it's time for me too to come out and start sharing what I have to say with others. So far I have relied mostly on technology helping me improve my writing. I think it's time to take the next step and be open for the feedback from others. To start improving on a new level. After all the technology can only help me to improve my writing on a certain level.
So here I am. Writing my first really public post that will be posted to a hopefully much wider audience (hello to all my new readers).
At the same time, I'm really excited and nervous. I'm anxiously waiting to receive your feedback, but I'm worried about what I might hear and am I ready to handle the criticism. I try to keep my mind open and take whatever may come graciously.
