I was joking with a colleague the other day about our shared problems with perfectionism. He said, "how can you be a perfectionist, you have a blog?"
He made me realize that one of the (many) reasons I have been keeping a blog is because it is a way of challenging my perfectionist streak. I put all kinds of things up on this blog that feel incomplete (and/or not fully proofread) to me. Things that my perfectionism might have prevented me from ever getting out if my only outlet were regular publications.
Long live blogging!
