    I've thought about it too. When I saw an article last quarter echoing the one I was writing I gave up. But maybe this time.

    Never hesitate to share your wisdom or experience. Your style of writing, your experience, and knowledge is unique. Even though there may be similar topics your message may end up getting more readers, followers, and comments, etc. People may be able to relate to your story more than others.
