Mistakes happen but I ain’t smiling…
When I first start working on something, I get so ramped up about it that I fly through every stage. It’s hard to make myself slow down and take issue with things that might be going off in a direction that I don’t intend to go. Just one of the mistakes we make when we are trying to go it alone.
This even goes into my work-a-day job. I almost don’t want to ask anyone for help because I am a little bit of a control freak. But when I am flying through a task-list, I could really make a major boo-boo and asking for a second set of eyes would be a great help.
This is not a smart way to be.
HOW MISTAKES HAPPEN (by doing everything YOURSELF)
When I started writing books, I had help with editing, and cover art through my publisher. When I started indie publishing – not so much. I realize now that doing it all is not always a good thing. Heck, even working on this blog probably needs a helper. I keep it updated, keep posts going, answer comments, and keep the look of it on a level ground. Thank goodness, WordPress.org has made it so simple!
Still, I have spent a ton of time lately, writing blog posts and not as much writing books. And as they say, time is money. I have had people offer do post for me, but honestly, I don’t know them from Adam. My blog is my baby. I would not feel right letting a stranger baby-sit her. But maybe this is just a mistake on my part…one in a whole line of mistakes likely.
But having said that…I am going to ask you guys a question. No wait. Let’s do a poll. I just added a poll widget and am dying to try it out. If you, don’t have enough room to answer, just leave a comment.
