I wrote out this entire post before, and then the computer crashed and I lost it all, so I haven't felt like working on it. Finally, I'm biting the bullet and starting over :

I'm terrible at judging the quality of my own work.
I've almost deleted some of my best blog posts, thinking that they weren't good enough. I was ashamed to publish them, and I only did it to push myself to write better next time.
Guess what? Some of these posts, like this one that Tynan reposted to his community, turned out to be very good.
I've also noticed the same with photos I share on Instagram. Here, the quality (or the popular appeal) of a photo can roughly be judged by the number of likes and comments that a photo gets.
Over the past year I've uploaded over a hundred photos to Instagram... and I'm still struggling to see which ones will be well received. I'm almost ashamed to say this since I also give advice on how to take better photos with the iPhone.
