It’s true what they say, nothing you post online will ever disappear. This is why it is so important to be mindful of what you post to social media, even private accounts. Time and time again, we have witnessed an epic Facebook rant that went viral and the consequences were brutal. People have lost jobs, opportunities and so much more from sharing a little too much on social media.
If you come across a product, service or establishment that pisses you off, and you’re a blogger, there’s a good chance that you’ll use your blog as a venue to share your feelings with the world. Before you refocus your anger to the keyboard, think twice before typing and posting.
There are two adages that come into play here:
“If you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all.”
“There’s no such thing as bad press.”
If you still can’t resist the urge, and have a compulsion to post (many bloggers are obsessive personality types), ask yourself the following:
– Does the entry match my blog’s content?
– Will readers care
– Would I be satisfied if this blog post comes to represent my entire blog?
What do YOU think? Does this sound advice apply to the blogosphere?
