Ask An Ambassador: Sometimes It's Better To Just Punt

I've typed away at this keyboard literally thousands of times to produce a blog post.

Some days are easy, some days not so much.

The idea is there.  I know what I want to accomplish with the post.

I start to type, but something just doesn't feel quite right.  I may be one sentence in, or almost done with the post, but I can feel it.

Somewhere in the execution of the idea and the intent, the tone isn't what I want, and tone matters, especially in a flat medium where there's no body language to tip you off as to which end of the emotional spectrum I might be.

Losing the tone I want may be the difference between engaging the audience (in a good way) or having them thoroughly ticked off, and depending on topic (Zillow or politics anyone???!!!) there may already be a lot of short fuses.

Sometimes I can push through, edit, rework and find a way to make it work.

Other times, it's better to just punt.  Delete the post entirely, stash it in drafts and hope another day might be better.

But what I don't want is another example of a post that should have never seen the light of day.  Facebook, Twitter, blogs and other outlets are already well populated with writing that should have never left the keyboard.

So my first idea of the day?  I punted :)

Until next Tuesday, just Ask An Ambassador if you need help,
