So I started off to make this a very funny “5 most common Newbie mistakes”.
Then I started to work on it and thought about various people I have known through the years who were getting started in this business (I really don’t like the name newbie) and I realized that 5 wasn’t going to be enough so I changed it to “10 most common Newbie mistakes” and started to outline the article (since I didn’t have a blog then it seemed like something I would wright and post or publish someplace else).
Then I realized that 10 might not be enough either. . . .
So I thought I would just start posting them here at random intervals, like maybe each time I ran into that particular mistake again.
The problem, of course, is that then I don’t have a chance to reflect on the list as a whole and to weigh out which mistakes are actually the most common one.
So I thought I would start with the most universal mistake and then work from there.
