If someone were to ask me for one piece of blogging advice, and only one, I would have no trouble narrowing it down. Nobody has asked me, mind you, but humor me here.
Live life humbly, notwithstanding your blogging life.
If you ever get to the point where you feel the need to sing your own praises or shamelessly promote your successes and impact…quit. Quit without notice.
And that is seriously my best blogging advice. Scary, right?
There Is No Indispensable Man
Sometime when you’re feeling important;
Sometime when your ego’s in bloom
Sometime when you take it for granted
You’re the best qualified in the room,
Sometime when you feel that your going
Would leave an unfillable hole,
Just follow these simple instructions
And see how they humble your soul;
Take a bucket and fill it with water,
Put your hand in it up to the wrist,
Pull it out and the hole that’s remaining
Is a measure of how you will be missed.
You can splash all you wish when you enter,
You may stir up the water galore,
But stop and you’ll find that in no time
It looks quite the same as before.
The moral of this quaint example
Is do just the best that you can,
Be proud of yourself but remember,
There’s no indispensable man.
