Puff, Puff, Pass the Mic/Keyboard (Blogging and Podcast Lessons Learned)

It is a fact that everyone farts and shits. With that being said, no one is beyond reproach (questions and criticism). When it comes to blogging and podcasting, I wouldn’t go as far to say it is an art. However…

If you want to speak, demonstrate or exhibit in public, whether social media, speaking engagements or just spouting off in public. You must be realistic and understand that this is not reserved for you alone. If you want to let everyone know what you got going on or what your thoughts are, then you must be prepared for the counter argument, the slander, the name calling etc.

Not everyone agrees with you. Not everyone sees things as you do. I don’t understand the people who want to let everyone know their feelings, yet they refuse to hear others out , when the others express dissenting views. Before you know it, these “saints” are too eager to block and censor.

Blocking and censoring is cowardice. You got your turn to say whatever you want, now pass the microphone or keyboard to the next person and allow them the same freedom to talk shit about you. If you cannot stand the criticism, maybe you shouldn’t be posting, saying or exhibiting anything.

Freedom = Freedom, if you cannot grasp this concept, then you’re part of the problem.

Welcome to bottomlesscoffee007.com, say whatever you want, I couldn’t care less…

If you’re gonna post it, allow the observer, reader or listener to make their own assumptions and criticisms. If you censor or block them, then what was the point in the first place?

You never know who you will reach and who will challenge you. If you’re afraid of a challenge, then you’re that much weaker!

If your social media and content suck, then that’s on you.

Don’t ask for an opinion if you don’t really want a different opinion!

A true artist allows their art to be interpreted.

  1. Oof – lemme guess, someone blocked you? It happens. I’ve had it happen lots of times. Sometimes it’s surprising and hurts, but most of the time it’s pretty easy to just forget about it. Let the good times roll – NEXT!

      No, not lately. Just trying to help people out.

      I find it rather humorous whenever I am blocked or censored. If only we could talk heather, I think we’d get along famously!!!

      1. Oh we will – perhaps next week. This is my first full week of the job search and I’m trying to get new habits and routines in place to sate my OCD. Having never been unemployed before, it’s been a bit of a struggle to adjust.

    2. Heather! Someone blacked you? On WordPress? I find that astounding. Your content is about beauty, style and fashion; very uncontroversial….007, on the other hand…

      1. If someone has blocked me on WordPress, I don’t know about it yet. I meant in general. I’ve been blocked several times on lots of social media sites by friends/followers – I (mostly) don’t take it personally.

          1. It’s pretty straightforward, actually – most people that end up blocking me do it because they aren’t technologically savvy. They usually aren’t interested in seeing my Avon related posts and, instead of choosing to block specific posts, they end up unfriending or blocking me. Sometimes it’s hilarious because I’ll be chatting with them in person and they ask what I’ve been up to lately, so I ask if they’d checked out my personal FB profile and they claims they haven’t seen a post from me in a long time. When they eventually sign in to FB and try to navigate to my profile, they realize they’ve unfriended or blocked me. There have been a couple of friends that have blocked me and ceased all communications, but I honestly don’t know WTF happened – I was ghosted. It hurt and is confounding, but I can’t dwell on what’s, in essence, solely their problem. If you have a problem with something I post, say or do, use your words – it’s almost always a misunderstanding. *shrug*

  2. Here I was expecting a post on the intricacies of Coffee…
    Anyway, I really like the last sentence about an artist allowing their art to be interpreted.
    But if you couldn’t care less about what I say, why do I say it?

      Goldie, you have no idea how much I appreciate your input. I was just trying to show you that I’m a freedom guy. I just hope to help others embrace this idea of freedom=freedom. The more that censor, block and basically just all around book burners, the more they refuse others, the more they will be refused.

      If we want freedom for ourselves, then it is imperative that we allow freedom for those whom we disagree with and even despise.

  3. People lost the art of ‘agree to disagree’. The ones that flip out over a different opinion were probably told by mommy & daddy that they were perfect little angels and, the sun rose & set in their precious little asses.

    I had to block MANY nutjobs when I was still on FB. THEY were the ones that couldn’t take a different opinion. I had several come after me via Messenger. Got all nasty with me because I dared to challenge them. Had to block men from sending me pix of their genitals.

    I haven’t had to block a blogger. FB seems to breed bad behavior. I don’t care about different opinions. You start to harass me? Then, we have a problem.

  4. Thankfully, I have never been blocked or had to block anyone on WP. I don’t always agree with someone, and sometimes get into a debate or argument about a topic, and it generally ends with “agreeing to disagree”. I like your post. It is good to listen to different opinions and to what other people have to say as we are not always right. No-one is 100% accurate – except me. I may not always be right but I am never wrong. (LOL).
