Finally continuing with my blog introspection challenge. Except – there is no post I regret writing. None. Zero. Zilch. I can’t think of anything that truly made me regret ever having put it out there. Ok, I have written a number of hasty posts. Or rather: I have acted rashly and impulsively on something that seemed like a fan-tas-tic idea to me at the time, only to find that I hadn’t thought it through properly. Like that time when I started a poll for the proposed fandom identifier badges, and some people (rightfully) took exception to my suggested slogans. Yeah, could’ve been avoided.
But well, that is me (pun intended). I am somewhat impulsive with my ideas, and even my lengthy/ritualistic writing process doesn’t mean that I always catch myself before I post about some half-baked idea. Unlike Mr A I am not a fan of “tidying up” or “retracting” something. What has been said, has been said. And even if I change my mind, I like to keep the evidence visible, of how a thought or an opinion developed over time. Maybe I am not taking myself seriously enough? But I trust you all know that nothing that I, Mr A or anyone else posts, is the word of god. Everything is only a snapshot of one’s thoughts at the given time. No more, no less. It’s opportunity to learn and to grow. Making mistakes is part of that. And I regret nothing!
