20 Trailblazers Leading the Way in fafsa on the web
blog Oct 19, 2021
I’m going to be honest with you- I’ve been thinking about and writing about this for quite some time. It started because I was a bit disheartened reading some of the online comments that I found on someone’s blog. I wanted to see the world through someone else’s eyes, and in order to that end, I had to put myself out there.
I got a few comments that were almost apologetic about the fact that they had been rude or had been otherwise not very nice to me. I’m pretty sure if I had had an internet-powered life, I would have responded with the same exact behavior. It just is what it is.
The fact is that I am lucky enough to have this technology, one of which is my job, that allows me to share my feelings with the world. Unfortunately, I have had a few nasty comments from a few people about my opinions on other peoples blogs and articles. It’s one of the main reasons I started this blog. The comments were mostly about my dislike of the people who make the blog.
I will say that I am surprised at how often people have negative things to say about a blogger on the internet. Perhaps it is because they don’t think they are going to see one of their own comments for months, as we do. But I have seen a wide variety of comments. Sometimes it is just a general criticism of my ideas, sometimes it is about my writing style, and the most common comment is usually about my appearance. But those negative comments are the ones that make me mad.
I think it’s about time that the negative comments that I receive are acknowledged by the people in the comments section. I can’t speak for anyone else, but I think it would be very wrong to let negative comments get free advertising.
I don’t know about everyone else, but the people in the comments section of my blog are my most loyal readers. I do my best to respond to them (as well as all the comments that they don’t like), but since the comments section of my blog is the place where I ask for advice, I don’t think I should assume that they read my blog and think I am the kind of person that should be ignored.
My own blog, Fafsa.com, is a place for me to do my best to respond to all my readers, but I think I have a responsibility here to the readers who are still new to this blog to be nice. I am not here to try and be your friend. I am here to try and help you out.
If you are here just for the comments, then you are doing yourself a disservice as I am sure many readers here are having their day as well. If you are here for the advice, then you are doing a disservice to me as you are leaving me no choice but to read your comments. If you are here to read the blog, then you are doing a disservice to my readers as I am not supposed to put my name on a post.
I think I have said it before, but we really don’t need to be such hardasses about things like this. We can leave a message here, and we can leave a message there. We can leave a comment, and we can leave a comment. If you have a question about a game, or if you have a question about something else, then you can ask it in the comments.
I am not here to censor your comments. If you really want to leave a message for me, a nice simple message should suffice.
