Before I say anything, it’s important for me to follow-up yesterday’s post about critiquing blogs. I believe the point I was attempting to make was misinterpreted. Thank you for you sentiments. The background for yesterday’s post wasn’t explained very well when I reread it Wednesday evening.
Allow me to try again. I typed a post last week discussing how I enjoy to fill in the blanks with blogger’s offerings. I like to complete their stories based on what I read on their blog, in their comments, and whatever else I can find. A few of you were curious what your own blog might say about you. They thought it would be a fun idea if I told them how their blog represents them. I think saying "critique" was a poor word choice in yesterday’s post. They wanted me to review their blogs and give feedback such as too many photos, talks about boyfriend too often, doesn’t swear as much as they should, etc. The intent wasn’t to be spiteful or mean and that’s all I’m going to say about that.
All of this being said now, what do you think your blog says about you? What topics are off-limits for discussion on your blog? Have you had to delete comments?
Here’s my take on what my own blog says about me. I’m an attention whore. I like sharing personal stories with people I’ve never met. I can be too sarcastic for my own good. I have a tendency to pet my ego a little bit. I enjoy looking back to compare and contrast my present life with the past. Sometimes I post about serious stuff, other days it’s just fluff. Maybe I watch too much tv and I just might read a blog or two during the day.
The only taboo topics on my blog are work specifics and really personal stuff about my family. Yes, I have deleted some comments from bizarre commenters unable to say something nice or worthwhile.
