You fear nothing seems to be quite perfect; wait on the blogging sidelines to edit the post for the 10th time. Re-read the post again. Be with the errors. Make the post better. Make the post more acceptable. Make the post perfect. But all perfectionist pining is fear. Bloggers fear being criticized. Bloggers fear wasting their time. Bloggers fear failure.
