What, why, whatever

This is a letter to myself, covering the what, the why and the whatever…

What is this all about… I have owned ryanholder.com for a fairly long time and on many occasions have thought about (and almost started) using it to write about projects I am working on and generally just airing my opinion on matters that I think matter. Up until now the just thinking has lead to the sum total of “0” people getting to read what I have to say and so by actually putting it out there this number can only get better.

Why have I decided to start now… It’s hard to pinpoint the exact reason as it is probably a combination of many, however the tipping point was reading a post by Rich Robinkoff which spoke of the Impostor Syndrome and in this lead me to a video of Chris Lema talking about it at a WordCamp. It was after taking in what I had read and watched that I had that aha moment, a large part of what was holding me back has been my own fear of what others might think and say when I put my thoughts out there.

Whatever… This is my polite way of say fuck you!! (too myself and to the fictional characters I have created who are already judging) Whenever I go to post something and start doubting whether I should or not… Whatever, just do it!!!

So expect more to come and if that notion stirs any negative feelings inside of you… WHATEVER !!!

  1. As a teacher, it is that “aha moment” I always look forward to from a handful of the more inspired students. As a member of our community, it means even more when I can help create that spark.
    Write what is on your mind without concern for who and how many will read it. Write what is on your mind because someone out there will find it funny, interesting, relevant, absurd…whatever.
    Glad I could help get you off your ass! Trust me, I struggle daily.

    1. Hi Rich, thanks for taking the time to read and post a comment and thanks again for your post that got this started

  2. No, thank you for taking what I wrote to heart. Knowing I can impact a life in even a small way makes it worth all the effort.

    Look at this sort of like that whole thing about dance like no one is watching thing, but much less poetic. 🙂
