It Really Grinds My Gears When…

…people don’t understand personal blogs and the importance of them to some people.

I was recently chatting with someone about blogging and how I have this blog that I work on and try to inspire other people with good deeds and fun thoughts and ideas. Now I’m not normally one to bash or write about negative things, but this really bothered me.

When it comes to the blogging world I think there are 3 types of people. Those that write, those that read, and those that criticize. The creators of the blogs that share their thoughts and experiences with their readers feel the need and importance to express themselves, even if their audience is one person. It is special for creators to share their blogs with others to help other cope, laugh, cry, understand, learn, and many other reasons why people create blogs.

Those that are reading blogs are looking for something in life or a topic, to learn, listen, understand, connect, interact, or whatever they gain from reading blogs.

Those that are critical I don’t think quite understand the purpose behind people expressing themselves. The power and freedom of those writing or reading, is not understood by the critical people. I think everyone is entitled to their own opinion about anything, but shutting out blogging because you don’t like what people have to say is absurd.

So if you are a blogger or follow blogs, keep being you and continue to help the greatest social media channels in the world.

    Critisizers need to just click off the blog and move on. That’s really the universal rule in blogging – if u don’t like it click off.

    Thankfully most of those types stay on other social media outlets, and for the most part the blogging community is a more positive place. I agree with you- why come around for the sole purpose of being critical? Does it make one feel bigger somehow? Personally I’d rather spend my time building others up, not tearing them down.

    Yep. That pretty much sums it up.
