It’s something to only have happened once or twice in the lifespan of this blog: I trashed a post.
There are only two reasons as to why I would ever do it: accuracy and/or originality issues.
No, this latest trashing wasn’t because it was ugly (and it was ugly). But because I still failed to see some crucial things before I posted. I was impatient (and being in a bad place can do that), and used some language I remembered from someone else’s work. I fell into despair that day, and slipped, but there are no excuses.
Never say never, though. Maybe I could repair it, and get it back up. But probably not. Blogging is supposed to be fun or at least fulfilling, and prompt, not sad and selfish (despite what “the masses” say).
You can always set your expectations too high (and lose that important sense of respect along the way), but you should never lose hope of a better tomorrow. ’Cause that’s when you really fall. Nothing in this world is a magic machine; if anything’s magic, it’s you.
It was important that the mistake happened. I learned a lesson (even if I have to drill it in). Everything in the past that has happened is necessary, even if you can’t see why.
And I’ve more to learn if I’d read The Ten Commandments of Blogging right. You should check that out, even if you’re long in to this whole thing.
