3 Lessons I Learnt from Blogging

Blogging is not as easy as you would think. As much as we value freedom of speech, we should also be mindful of how our comments would be met by people who do not share our view point.

This is what I learnt from Blogging.

1          Be Politically and Culturally Correct

We all have opinions and comments about literally everything. People may not always agree with what we think but it is still our opinion. Voicing one’s thoughts online will teach one to be sensitive to the political and cultural environments. And be aware of how to convey our observations without making enemies but gain supporters instead. There is indeed a fine line between stating one’s viewpoint and being presumed rude. 

2          Able to Take Criticism

As much as we enjoy letting people know our thoughts, feelings and comments, we are also opening ourselves to other peoples’ thoughts, feelings and comments. Not everyone sees the situation in the same manner as we do and this is where disagreements arise. The listener may want to assert his/her opinion on us and how we react can make or break a friendship. At the end of the day, just remember there is no right or wrong answer, it is just an opinion.

3          Read a lot

In order to have an opinion on something, we should first know what the issue is about. Our evaluation changes the more we find out about something. Of course, the fastest and easiest way to do this is to read a lot. By listening to the different opinions of people, we learn to look at a situation from many viewpoints. We may not agree with all of them but at least we are aware of them.

I hope the above 3 lessons would make us all a better blogger. What lessons have you learnt from blogging?

  1. I’ve learned that just because I think each of my new posts is the best post in the world, ever, and I get all excited about it, it doesn’t mean that everyone else will feel that way as well, haha.
