I really appreciate the open tone of the post and not shying away from criticising your own work. I find it hard to relate to a lot of writing on the internet these days, specifically because it seems people trying to portray themselves as a subject matter expert (building their personal brand) means they omit their own failures or shortcomings that ultimately lead to learning something new.

Good luck with the blog, would love more "meta" posts like this.

 

Thanks, Martin! Honestly, I think admitting your own mess ups is KEY to becoming a subject matter expert. If you're unable to own your mess ups, how will people be able to trust your work? How will you become even better of a subject matter expert on the topic if you don't learn and evolve? You hit the nail on the head with this comment, Martin!
