Don’t Forget The Disclaimer


Because of the nature of the subject matter, I’d estimate that it takes me three times as long to write a C++ post as compared to any other topic. Part of that writing/thinking time is burned up trying to anticipate and address questions/critiques from future readers. Thus, from now on, I’m gonna try to follow this advice more closely:

It’s tough to publicly expose your work. In fact, I think that the fear of receiving harsh criticism may be the number one reason why some creative but shy people don’t post any substantive personal content on the web at all. The web can be a mighty unfriendly world for introverts.

If you’re one of these people, but you’re itching to share with the world what you think you know or have learned, give it a try anyway. You might end up receding back into the shadows, but maybe you’ll be able to handle and overcome the adverse feelings that come with the territory. You won’t know unless you give it a go. So go ahead and scratch that itch – at least once.

    Back when I followed Raymond Chen’s blog regularly, I was always amused how he anticipated certain types of “feedback” from specific people and ended his posts with something like “Pre-emptive snarky Mr. Poo comment: Yes, the fiddle-lee-doo could have done XYZ instead of QWE, but then this or that would have gotten lost in translation” 🙂
