Several years ago I was an active member of the Bitmob community. The website would feature stories written by community members. I was fortunate to have several stories featured on the front page. Bitmob was later purchased by VentureBeat.
It took me a while to learn that if you write and speak from the heart, you don’t need to fill your story with superlatives. Several of the things I wrote and now look back on make me cringe. I’m sure anyone who writes for a living has had the same experience. Having said that, for all of the effort I put into making my stories look professional on the outside (for better or worse), there was always heart and passion on the inside.
