I was reading one of my favorite blogs today, Inspiration To Dream, by Fi from over in the Down Under and she was quite terse in her words about people judging others, judging others anonymously especially which I agree is the most cowardly of acts in the blogosphere. Speaking from first hand experience, I know when I have been 150% authentic in my posts about my dreams, my passions, the direction in life our family is going, etc, I have received some not so nice comments i.e. judged. I think that right there is the reason why so many people in the blogosphere are not TRULY authentic. So often we (including me at times) are in fear of ruffling feathers, stepping on someones *fingers*, offending someone and I say ENOUGH is ENOUGH.
If you are brave enough to have a blog, putting yourself out there for ridicule, BE WHO YOU ARE, without the fear; it is YOUR blog! You make the rules. Like I have said a few times to the people that have left unpleasant comments, if you don't like what I am writing about, if you don't agree, fine, but you don't have to be a jerk about it. The solution is simple: DON'T read my blog. Turn off the computer and move along.
Even with critics, I, for one, will continue to blog about the good, the bad and the ugly of our lives trials and tribulations because that is WHO I am and I can not be anybody other than that. With that in mind, the blogs that I follow and comment on regularly are similar as well. The people are real, their stories are sometimes very raw, they live and love life even with the ups and downs.
Be true to you! That is what really matters in the end.
