“Your first 10,000 photographs are your worst.”
Henri Cartier-Bresson – Photographer
I came across this great quote today and as a photography nut it rang true.
However I quickly realized that the quote could easily be applied to the medium of blogging.
“Your first 10,000 blog posts are your worst”
Like anything – blogging is something that the majority of us are not brilliant at in our early days. I look back at some of the posts I wrote in my first year of blogging and shudder with embarrassment. The mistakes were spectacular and frequent.
However with each mistake and failure comes a lesson, with every post comes comes a new skill and with each experiment comes a discovery of a technique that works (or doesn’t work).
If you’re a new blogger – don’t be discouraged if it doesn’t ‘click’ for you straight away.
