New year, new you, new activities for your kids. Is this is the year that Sam wants to learn to play the violin? Or Suzie wants to take up dancing? Or you need to find John a new lacrosse camp? It can be tough navigating all the options for classes, programs and camps. In 2018, let other moms…
Well, since I could totally see myself as at some point being a potential offensive blogger (hehe) I would blog on by. I use my blog as my personal outlet. I don't censor myself, and I would never censor others.
Even some of my favorite blogs that I check on a daily basis post things I may not agree with, but I appreciate open speech, and find the differing viewpoints exciting to read.
Interesting question. I just had that experience 2 minutes ago. I visited a blog post that talked about pushing a child a little too hard in an extracurricular activity. The child was probably 2! I thought about leaving a comment, but everything I thought to write felt too righteous. I ended up leaving the blog without leaving my 2 cents. I care too much about people's feelings, unfortunately.
Blog on by, absolutely. My husband have been online since 1996 and learned after 6 months online in chat groups etc. that arguing online is a BAD choice. It never gets you anywhere. Now, if soeone is soliciting an opinion in a gentle way I have no problem supplying one, but if someone is just saying something I don't like I just walk away.
Fab question! I put the question on mye...what if it's me posting something offensive or debatable? What would I appreciate? Blog on by if you have nothing nice to say...it is THEIR opinion after all, they arent' forcing anything on me and I have the ability to read or not so....
I try to just blog on by but there has been a few times I left comments. These are the times I let my anger get the best of me and my comments are more rude then making valid points. I have only done this about 3 times, I am convinced the writers were trying to get peoples goats-they won with me!
If I think about it and I feel the need I will come back and post, these are the times I make more valid points.
I have been known to rage on my keyboard a time or two, but I hope those days are behind me now :o) If I come upon something that ignites the passion to comment, I "walk away" and give myself some time to think it through. When I had just posted immediately, chock full of emotion and festered, the resulting comment relayed more of my emotion than my point.
If it is something that I think I can offer my opinion about without going off the handle.......I would leave a comment.If it is something that totally bends me out of shape......I try to just blog on by.I try not to start flame wars......:)
