I am always trying to come up with a subject for a blog post. Well while I was over checking out things over on Sverve this morning I came across a blog called Kludgy Mom and her blog post called "Idea Bank: Your Source For Writing Prompts" and it was about 600 Brilliant Blog Post Ideas. That is when the not so bright light bulb in my head went off and decided to just pick a number and scroll down and do a blog post on that idea, no matter what it was.
Well, I picked number 326 and here was the idea:
Are we saying what we really mean in the blog world or are we all just being too nice?
So, my thoughts on this one is pretty easy. Yep, I tend to think that we sugar coat things when we comment on other bloggers posts. Like we are going to go over and say that their review or post really sucked. I know that I wouldn't do that anyway. That is being rude. I am not sure how you could handle it without getting on that bloggers bad side. I, myself would like to know if I had a post out there that really sucked so that I could rewrite it and I would be thankful that someone else would come forth and tell me. However, on that note, I am not a skilled enough blogger to know what the companies and readers truly want.
I know that when I used to do posts on my daily mishaps or things that I have done with the daycare kiddos or things like that. I quit writing posts about things like that because no one ever really commented on them. Then a month or two after I stopped I had some people tell me in person that they loved reading my posts. So, were they being nice or what?
As far as what I post, I mean what I say. I have had to write negative reviews and I didn't like to do it, but that is all part of doing honest reviews. The good and the bad, no matter what whether the company wants to hear it or not. That is what makes it nice is that I get whatever products I am getting before I write any review.
So are you saying what you really mean in the blog world or are you just being too nice?
