I always welcome constructive criticism about my blog and corresponding social media pages.
Well, not really, but people send it to me unsolicited and regardless, so I might as well pretend like I’m open to it, right?
Apparently, somewhere along the way I must have given the impression that I’m a professional – if there is such a thing as a professional Mom Blogger – and therefore, everything here should be perfect.
I guess that some people must not realize that most of my posts are written late at night, or if I dare try to do it while the kids are awake, it’s while I’ve locked myself in the bathroom in search of enough quiet to formulate a cohesive thought (or two).
However, by the end of the day I’m brain dead by all accounts, and truthfully, toilet blogging isn’t as productive as it sounds.
So back to the constructive criticism… It happens -often- and sometimes I really do appreciate the free editorial service (like typo’s I missed), and other times I might agree, but don’t change anything – such as the post I did last year called The Passion of the Housewife.
The reader/editor of the internet said that although they enjoyed the written portion of my post, my graphics ruined their entire life (or something similar and equally as dramatic).
I did not go back and change the graphics, and not because I wanted to ruin their life, but as with most of my blogging, it gets what little attention I can give it in the moment, and then I’m on to the next piece of literary excellence that you have all become so accustomed to…
Then earlier today I saw a graphic I had to have…
And it just so happened that the graphic would have fit nicely in the post that may have cause the death of a unicorn (or ruined a life, or caused climate change or maybe caused a thousand cuddly kittens to die).
And perhaps it’s too little too late for that Editor of the Internet, or the unicorn, or the climate, or even the thousand baby kittens, but better late than never. Please enjoy a fancy new picture with my (bad) old poetry.
So much better?
What do you think? What’s your favorite unsolicited advice to receive? Leave me a comment and let me know!
