I have been writing at A Sista’s Journey for a little more than a year. Within this time, I have grown personally, and I have also grown as a writer. Becoming a better writer was actually one of the reasons that I began blogging in the first place.
The problem is that I have perused some of the blogs that I wrote a while ago, and found myself clutching my fists. Did I really write that? That sentence is incoherent. I must have been sleepy or tired when I hit the Publish button.
I know that we are our own worst critics, yet I wonder do other people feel this way several months or years after they have published a blog, article, or book. Please God, I hope that I don’t feel this way several months or years after I have published a book.
So I’m faced with a dilemma. Should I simply cross my fingers and hope that no one stumbles upon my incoherent blogs? Should I go back and scrutinize every blog? On one hand, that would seem quite anal. On the other hand, I could consider this a personal writing project. I could rewrite those blogs and replace the old ones with a new, fleshly modified version. Should I just delete them and pretend that they were never there? That would cause a host of problems if I ever linked back to the incoherent post in another blog (which I’m sure that I did at some point). I certainly don’t want to appear unprofessional in that way.
What should I do? Readers and writers, I really need your help.
