Life lessons I learned from blogging

Although there are many things involved when blogging, there are two main components: writing and personal experience / opinion.

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines a blog as  “a Web site on which someone writes about personal opinions, activities, and experiences”.

Another definition (dictionary.reference.com) is “a  website  containing  a  writer’s  or  group  of writers’  own  experiences,  observations, opinions,  etc.,  and  often  having  images  and links  to  other  websites.”

To create something meaningful from 26 letters takes creativity, skills, dreams and a lot of guts. With every written word you put a piece of yourself out there, making yourself more vulnerable.

Recently something I wrote was attacked in a twitter-tantrum.

Some people were nasty and many people got hurt. Things were sorted out in the end but it was all so unnecessary and painful!

In this post I am going to tell what I’ve learned from that experience.

Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. In many cases, that is what blogging is (writing your own opinion from your own experience). Don’t be mad at someone because their opinion differs from yours.

You have two eyes, two ears and one mouth. Use it in that proportion. Listen and look twice before you speak.

To put yourself out there you need a thick skin, because not everyone is going to like everything you say… and that is okay. Listen what they say, learn from it if it is possible and let it go.

In today’s world of modern technology communication is very important. You meet many people from different backgrounds, continents, cultures, perspectives and opinions. We need to realize that everyone has a little piece of life’s puzzle. If we learn and embrace our differences life can be a fun and colorful adventure.

Everyone has a voice, but with our freedom of speech comes responsibility. Use your words wisely.

In conclusion I want to say in my few months blogging I had one bad experience; but I have also met a group of lovely people… kind, caring, supporting, friendly, encouraging… People who builds up and strengthens. People not afraid to share knowledge and emotions.

This is the people I want to relate to, the conversations I am going to remember when I spend time with that 26 letters, creating something new from my experiences…

  1. Very true. I’ve found the same things running on online shop. Customers often forget that there’s a person behind the screen who works really hard. Some have been downright nasty and hurtful. Yes, I do get hurt, especially as I sell ceramics that I have made by hand. It’s a piece of me. I have to walk away, calm down and move on.
    On the flip side, some people who started out as customers are now really good friends. Thankfully the good outweighs the bad. Cath x
