Blogging Tip of the Day: Vol. 93


Today's Tip: Be prepared to fail. I don't think I explained this one all that well in the past tips, so I figured I will take another stab at it. Nobody has ever set up a blog and went to "huge success" without failures. As a matter of record, I personally don't take anyone all that seriously unless they have had a few glorious failures under their belt, because we aren't in the same league. Most people that have never had a really good failure here and there don't live in the real world at all, because it is like they came out of the womb, did great, continued to do great, and are now great. How in the name of God would they know what great is?

Every failure we have had in life in general molds us into what we are, what we understand, and it gives us a pretty good understanding of what we don't actually want to do. Like Winston Churchill had said, "Success is going from failure to failure without a lack of enthusiasm," well blogging is the art of going from obscurity to mediocrity and swearing that you are living the good life. The fact of the matter is, if that is your attitude then you are doing great, and thanks to the failures you have endured you actually know and respect that you are doing great.
