Discussion on: how many of you are automated bots

I could probably be confused for a bot with how often I just lurk on most social media haha. I have 4-5 drafts for posts saved but don't feel ready to post any of them, and I'm pretty fresh into dev stuff, so I don't have a ton of experience to draw from to add to discussions.

I do have personal experience with not being a bot, so I can contribute to this one!

I would highly encourage you to post them now and update them as you get feed back. I wrote a post kind of talking about the fears of releasing work or ideas. This platform is perfect for this!

Thanks! I think this was the little push I needed to actually get the post cleaned up and post it :)

Just make sure you do not use "clean up" mode to avoid publishing them. It's ok to have your post be messy and update them over time. You have to remember that what you think is a mess and un-useful is gold to others. I've learned that over time, post that I thought were just rants, turned out to get the most love.

I totally, definitely, have not been doing that at all for the last few weeks lol ;)
Just published the one I felt best about! Now I can really say I'm not a bot!
