done is better than perfect.

Done is better than perfect.

It’s incredibly easy to put that idea into action when it’s somebody else’s project. When it’s my own, though, I get caught up in the weeds and forget to just do.

Case in point: this blog. I don’t know if I really want to be a blogger, but instead of just trying it for a while I obsessed for months about tag clouds and photography and systems and processes. Stuff that’s not really all that necessary for a blog that currently has what, like 5 posts? Stop stalling, self.

So instead of obsessing about how the site doesn’t look like it looks in my head, I’m just going to write. Here’s some stuff I might write about:

  • Food.
  • Travel.
  • Adventures. You might think that’s the same as travel, and maybe it is sometimes, but not necessarily.
  • (Mis)adventures in dating. I have no game. It’s funny.
  • Stuff that makes me laugh.
  • Home decor, on occasion.
  • Digital media. Maybe marketing too.
  • Fashion and shopping, maybe.
  • Maybe running? I only have one post idea (a love letter to Accel Gels) so maybe that won’t come up that much.
  • Wine. I drink a lot of wine. Also: I know nothing about wine except I watched that documentary Somm and got inspired to drink more wine. Funny how that happens.
  • Real talk. Friendship and career and happiness and sadness and that.

Here goes nothing, right?

Cheers to you, people not judging the poor quality of the webcam picture. Cheers to you.
