Why sharing personal work is so scary (and what I’m doing about it)

When you:

build a product, design a personal website, write a book, etc…

… you eventually have to tell the world about it.

But telling the world about something you created can be the scariest thing.
In fact, a lot of creative people fear sharing their work.

Here’s why:

  1. They fear sharing work that is not perfect.
  2. They fear rejection.

It’s just so much easier to keep building. Getting to perfect.

Now:

Today I’m sharing something I built with you. And yes I’m scared…

You see at Juntoo  apart from writing articles and creating resources for web designers, we’re building something.

A tool for web designers and web developers.

To be more exact:
We’re building a Chrome extension that lets you annotate specific DOM elements on any webpage.

You can then share those annotations with others so they can view and comment your annotations.

But you know what?

It’s far from perfect! :-)

But the main functionality is there.

And we think it’s pretty cool and potentially a super useful tool for web professionals.

Here’s a 1 min video of Juntoo in action:
