So I've been wondering. I often spend days to write an article.
'Cause I never feel the article is complete and ready to be published.
Does the content make sense? Is it relatable? Did I spend all this time just rambling?
Maybe there's a wrong assumption? Wrong fact? Did I make a googie?
Maybe it's not relevant to other people? Maybe it's bland? Maybe I should add a diagram? Or an example?
When I feel that the article is decent enough and I've gotten tired of editing it, I quickly publish it before I can change my mind.
And being the self-obsessed person that I am, I often come back to reread them.
And often I feel like, maybe I could add reference to that article that I recently read. That quote. Maybe this Codepen.
Maybe active voice would've sounded better than passive here.
Once it gets into my mind, it bothers me that something is amiss in my article. And I edit it.
So yeah, here's my question.
- Do you guys do it too? Do you edit your articles if you find something to add/change in it?
- Or once it's published, you don't touch it again at all? Like, religiously. Add comments instead maybe?
- Or add new stuff with a new "Edited" section.
- Or store your ideas till you have enough of them to make another independent article?
- "You're crazy Gaurang. Nobody thinks about their articles so much. Here, have a cookie 🍪"
PS. I took more than half a day to post this question
Level up every day
