When you start anything new, you don't know whether you have what it takes to get to your goal.  It's impossible to know all the variables at play and plan for unknowns.  At some point you have to follow your gut and start cranking out to take one step at a time.  Although you may not be certain whether you might be able to complete the journey, unless you start doing it you'll never know whether your idea was achievable.

I felt the same way when I started blogging on Future of Social Network.  I wasn't sure whether I had time and energy to keep up a blog.  What was even unclear was whether there will be any reader of what I had to say.

Today, I'm happy to say that I made just over 100 blog entries over past one year and a few months.  And to my amazement that I was able to see people reading the blogs that I wrote.  Along the way one or two entries got picked up by Y Combinator news and a couple of posts got picked up by, which were really encouraging.

So today I went ahead and registered  Let's see if we can build a community of social media users and builders to talk about what might be coming up in future.

Here is to the next 100 blog entries and beyond!

For some inspiration, I wanted to share Sarah Kay's Ted presentation about 3 things to keep in mind when starting something new:

Happy blogging.
