Writing Blog Posts is Scary

April 17, 2013

I’m 21. That number means absolutely nothing to me1. Every day there are crazy systems made by Zach Holman or something that saves humanity from Elon Musk or a sweet new development environment churned out by Chris Granger. The sheer amount of content and genius that comes out of this community of passionate, hungry developers is both awe-inspiring and overwhelming. Trying or even thinking about trying to get on this level of success is terrifying due to the fact that I will either always be wrong or someone will always be better.

This won’t resolve to an epiphany I’ve had or a statement telling you what you have to do. There are enough of those.

Just know that if you’re feeling this way, you are not alone.

1 aside from getting past bouncers ;)
