Create open source project - advise needed

view story

http://stackoverflow.com – I've learned a lot form this site and I wish someone can give me an advise on this one, I'm working on a project and I'm thinking of releasing it, the thing is I'm not a gifted programmer and I'm using very simple programming techniques, I've read this and it has very good points, the question is I think open source project can fail badly, with fail I mean no one will join the project to improve it, so is anyone here been in this situation and has an advise to offer?
