    Amen Sista!!! I needed this so much. I decided to launch in January and been thinking that’s ridiculous. I for sure have much to do on my blog but I already have problems putting myself out there. I don’t need not one more excuse to put it off. Learn as I go. I am done stalling!!

    Thank you Ruth.

    Oh this is the exact encouragement I needed to hear to move forward with my blog. It is super scary to put your heart out there!:) Thank you for your words.

    Ouch Ruth! I read this as if you were talking directly to me. I need to get out of my head and do it. Thanks for this post.

    It is about the journey, not the destination. Thank you Ruth for the reminder! Why do I keep forgetting that?!

    Hi Ruth! I don’t know what to say! Like Poovanesh said, “Just do it!”

    This hits home for me, as I thought a lot about starting a blog back in 2012 but never actually started until this year. A comment my neighbor made always reminds me to get out of my perfectionist mode and just start gettin’ going. I was building a deck on my house and was trying to bump out the outer edge to correspond to the kitchen bay window. I couldn’t get the angle of the cut just right, and reluctantly asked my neighbor (a builder) for help. He came over and knocked it out in five minutes and said to me, “Look, you’re not building the space shuttle here, just get it done.” I think about that often when I’m putzing around doing endless research. Eventually, you have to just get going and get it done.

    As someone who invested in a blog website a year ago and still hasn’t launched or published anything, I definitely needed to read this. Thank you for the perspective.

    I launched my blog by accident by pushing the wrong button and only found out weeks later. I decided to just go with it and it was totally ok. In the beginning, and especially when you don’t promote yet, there will hardly be any traffic anyway but you can start ranking with Google.

    I’m still learning but I would say, yes, just do it! There is no reason to wait.

    I find it very frustrating that you are encouraging us to not to wait but to launch and learn as we go, yet you have a blog post about following a framework (EBA) to save yourself from potentially costly mistakes (financially and time-wise), bad advice, etc. Ironically, that course is only offered once a year, and it just happened for the year.
