The Best Day to Start

Published on April 26, 2012, by in Blog.

Is today. We’ve started, not coincidentally on NFL’s 2012 Draft Day. I’m tentative to say the words “launch” or “soft launch”, as all that has been done so far is a WordPress install, selecting a basic off-the-shelf theme and opening a few social accounts. So instead, I’ve settled on the word “start”. Starting is often the hardest part.

There are lots of reasons not to start:
Who will read these posts? (at this point, no one, not even Googlebot)
What if our writing is terrible? (it probably is, we have no journalism degrees)
How do I handle negative comments? (the Internet is full of trolls, just keep writing)
What if I run out of things to write about? (we won’t, the NFL is a soap opera for men)

Not to mention social pressures and the inevitible questions:
What will my friend’s think?
How will it make money?
Where do you find the time?

So we’ve taken all that into consideration, and decided to start writing.
