This week's question:
Be honest, do you ever get embarrassed by
some of the posts from when you first started blogging due to the lessor
quality? Yes, growth and experience is natural, but do you ever get the
urge to go back and “fix” things?
I realize that it is silly, but yes there are times where I have felt embarrassed by some of my old posts. I really feel like I've come a long way since I started blogging which is a good thing, but that doesn't really make it easier to not cringe when I read some of my early posts. However, other than grammatical rrors, I try to leave things alone. For the most part, this isn't too hard, but the fan girl squealing five star reviews of books that I would now only give a 3-4 based on my expanded view on books. After reading almost 800 books in the last 2.5 years I've become a whole lot more critical. It's just a whole lot harder to impress or surprise me at this point, so books that received a high rating at the start of my blogging career now get a much lower one. That being said, even though some of those high rating posts make me now want to cringe, I also realize that what I said was accurate at the time based on what I was feeling. Because of that, it really wouldn't be right to change anything. It would just lose that in the moment feeling.
