Article by Wendy McCance
I don’t know about you, but I am a huge fan of writing articles that really evoke a strong emotion in me. I think the best posts are the ones where I have a strong opinion about whatever subject I decide to write about. I look forward to reading the variety of reactions after the article is posted. I am not out to shock the masses or create massive controversy. I do enjoy a little debate over the subject though.
What tends to surprise me the most, is when I get a comment and I just know the reader truly misinterpreted the message I was trying to express. I never know when I write back to that reader if my explanation of my intention behind a particular article is explained in a way that the reader understands. I am all for differences of opinion. That’s what makes the world go round. It’s just a bummer when I somehow haven’t been able to relate a topic in a way that is understandable to all.
One of the things I enjoyed most about having a blog is that once a subject is brought up, you have the opportunity to see what the general consensus is. People who write their comment with a completely different point of view are the best comments of all. It gives me an opportunity to stretch my way of thinking and get a much wider view of what is being discussed.
What a wonderful opportunity then to gain so much information and insight on such a variety of topics. Blogging definitely has many benefits. This just happens to be one of my favorite benefits of the whole process.
