I received an email last Saturday that didn’t sit well with me at first, but I have taken several days to process the criticism.  So today I am going to write about emailing other bloggers an…

  1. I don’t mean to vent on your page. But I sent an email with the intention of providing constructive feedback and clearly stated in my email that my suggestions didn’t need to be followed. And that I didn’t mean to be offensive, but I felt as a friend that I needed to email him. I did it through email and not on his comment page because I didn’t want to offend him or embarrass him. He responded rudely to me and again I insisted I was only trying to be helpful. His third response back indicated he appreciated the feedback. The fact he felt the need to make such a post and talk about being offended without personally reaching out to me is hypocritical. Especially when my comments weren’t publicly stated. You cannot present yourself as a person who wants to instruct others about making your life better if you find offense at every single sense of constructive criticism. I can understand if he reached out to me and was honest and I threw it back in his face. Especially when you are asking people to financially invest in a blog in return for advertisement or face time with followers. But I was telling the truth in my feedback and was being honest about my issues with his writing style. Apparently he doesn’t want honesty, just fluff.

    1. OK, it’s ok that you vented here. Like I said before, maybe it can be a learning experience. Perhaps for the both of you. I’m sorry that he took it out of context. Everything is not always how we mean it to be in text. That’s what ended my first marriage. ..LOL


      1. Which is why if you got a problem with a person you talk it out, in private. Not make it water cooler conversation. The fact he made such a post without including the conversation and without the other person’s perspective is hurtful. To read comments by other people who have no knowledge of the conversation and be made a villain so he can provide “tips” on blogging is deeply troubling and disrespectful. I would never make a post to make a point at the expense of the feelings or well being of another person. Especially knowing that the other person would be reading what I wrote.

      2. I completely understand what you are saying. I’m sorry that it was you he was writing about. The problem is that perspective is truth. It’s unfortunate that it was taken out of context.


      3. I also emailed him personally after his post and has taken upon himself to continue to be malicious. He has failed to respond to me through email but has continued to make comments about me in his comment section. Even bragged that he took it upon himself to have me “unfollowed” on his site but also has not posted the comment I left on his page.


      4. I’d like to stop this conversation. Whatever happened, happened. The point of his post remains the same. We shouldn’t have to deal with people’s negative comments. For whatever that means to each of us individually. Now both of you just move on. He never pointed out that it was you, no one knows that. We all blog about things that effect us.


      5. I respect that, and didn’t mean to vent on your reblog of his post. However it troubled me to see that you endorsed his post given the nature of the topic and negativity around it.
