At first the thought of being your own editor is a dream come true; you get to say what you want when you want how you want all the time. It’s one of the top reasons why a number of bloggers ditch the big conglomerates and start their own; it’s very entrepreneurial if you think about it.
And that’s the beauty of blogging.
But, I can’t help but think how a number of people really do need a good editor before they hit publish; some of the stuff they write and say could have been tempered or edited a bit to communicate more effectively what they were trying to say. Or, it could have saved them from saying something they’d eventually regret.
You see, I think a lot of the times we forget that we’re both writers and editors and how many are one but not the other; it’s rare to find a person who’s good at both.
It doesn’t hurt to have someone review those posts; I think this doubly applies in ministry.
What do you think?
