You Need To Publish That Blog Post

This is from Jon Acuff (who is tied for first for best blogger ever). It really encouraged me in MY blogging, and maybe it will for you too.

1 reason you need to publish that blog.

If you’re a blogger, you’ve had plenty of “almost published” posts.

These are ideas you thought about sharing but didn’t. Maybe it was fear, maybe it was laziness, maybe it was the simple fact that you are busy.

So the post goes unpublished, but here’s one reason we need it.

If you’ve blogged for a little while, at some point, someone told you “That post was for me.”

The funny thing is, you didn’t know. You had no idea that someone you’ve never met, in a city you’ve never been to was going to need that. You had no idea you weren’t publishing a post, you were firing a flare into the dark night of the Internet to let someone else know they aren’t alone. Or crazy or the only one that finds something funny or confusing or a million other things.

Why do you need to publish that blog?

Because it wasn’t meant for you.

It was meant for someone else.

And we need it.

  1. I love John Acuff! I had the wonderful privilege of meeting him when he came to speak during Leadership Week at my college last year. He's just as funny and inspiring in real life!

    1. Ah oh my! He's one of my favorite authors/bloggers/speakers ever! He constantly inspires me in my writing and to live-tweet more television shows :D

  2. THis is such a great idea - I have 67 in drafts and some I really just need to sit down and write!
