There’s a fallacy of thinking here:

  1. Publish something mediocre.
  2. Damage my reputation forever.
  1. Publish something.
  2. Your audience will react when it’s good. (When it’s not, they’re usually silent.)
  3. If it’s bad, you may lose a few readers for a while…
  4. Yet, if you keep publishing, you will naturally learn from audience feedback, and your content will improve over time.
  5. Some of the potential readers you lost (from a poor first impression) will find their way back to you, thanks to positive word-of-mouth. That’s the magic of social media.
  6. Many more new people will also find you, thanks to the volume of content you have now published.
  7. Most importantly, you grow every time you post something, because you learn to ignore fear (an emotional reaction to the illusion of a scarce reality, when in fact the universe is abundant and the opportunities limitless.) Each time you publish, you get another opportunity to improve. Without publishing, you won’t truly improve.
