I appreciate the diversity of God’s creation and how others appreciate what He has made.
It’s pretty neat to see a snapshot of someone else’s life or thoughts – usually there is value added (even if it is just considering and rejecting an idea).
When I truly follow a blog (i.e. actively looking forward to new content such that it is on my to-do list to read), I value and look for new perspectives on the following:
- Outfit ideas
- Brand & item reviews
- Helpful tips
- General information sharing
- Experiential sharing
However, there are some things that I hate and try to avoid:
- Shameless self promotion (i.e. 50 pictures in the same outfit)
- Arrogance & fake humility
- Name dropping
- Vanity & NO substance
- Bad English & unnecessary words
I get that for many it is a business…but for me, the Bible is clear on speech. Guard your speech, preserve your life. Speech that is verbal, written or even mental -> one reaps what is sown. Bitter words = bitter fruit. Sweet words = sweet fruit.
Also – nothing digital is ever deleted…it is waiting somewhere for a subpoena from someone! 🙂
Note to self -> Anything that needs to be said, can be said nicely.
Adrian Rogers, via radio broadcast of a sermon long after his death, said that is why we have two ears and one mouth – quick to hear and slow to speak. Listen, think, then speak…
