I delete 70% of the blog articles I write at a second reading. I called it Words Quality Assurance.
It’s not about you, the reader. I do it for my own mental sanity. I don’t think that the articles I publish are better than the ones I delete. I read online faster and less every day. You do the same. My publishing criteria have less to do with quality and more with ideas. If I feel the text is giving me something back, it stays.
That something could be a continuance of the idea or a new one. If it makes me think more about it, it stays.
