On Self Doubt

You ever sit and think;
“Why would I write anything here?”
“Who cares?”
“Does anyone want to read this shit?”
“Do people really want to look at these photos?”

And then I remember all the assholes out there spewing hateful terrible shit that have an audience of millions. Literally millions!

I think I need to get over my self doubt and just put something out there. Surely there are at least a handful of people out there who might find what I have to say interesting, entertaining, or valuable. But damn, it’s hard to motivate yourself and put yourself out there.

I certainly have a lot more respect for the folks that sit in front of a keyboard day in and day out and churn out real, honest, heartfelt content. I’m not talking about that clickbaity shit. I mean genuine blog posts that contain a real opinion, thoughtful analysis, or creative work of humor or art.

Or I suppose you can just sit your ass in front of the keyboard and type whatever comes into your head, no matter how ill-conceived. So go for it I guess. What’s the worst that can happen?

Where’s the photos Vince?

I’m working on uploading photos and updating my site. I’m struggling with 2 things. Not knowing what I should write, and mostly annoying internet. I’ll have a whole post about Verizon Travel Pass and Hong Kong data roaming though, that’s for sure!

An Experiment

I’ve started up this site for a couple reasons:

  • I’m sick of Facebook and their data collection but I still wanted to share things, and if anyone is going to make money off my “content” it’s going to be me, not Facebook.
  • I wanted to practice writing for an audience. I haven’t written anything of consequence in years. I think it’s time for a change.
  • I’ve got too much free time, and wanted to play with AWS. I normally use Amazon Web Services for my day job, but never anything I want to play with. I figured I may as well just mess around with various features and services to maintain this blog. Maybe I’ll eventually post some useful technical articles one day. (Don’t hold your breath)

So here we are. All the photos you’ll see posted are my own. All comments and opinions contained herein, no matter how ill advised, are my own. I don’t allow comments on my site, but I will read and sometimes respond to emails if you have something to say.
