I used to know a gal who’s motto was “I heart controversy.” Although that has never exactly been my way of thinking, I definitely understand the sentiment when it comes to PR and writing. After all in media controversy gets page views and readers.
Still, I generally have always wanted people to like me and do my best not to ruffle feathers, but I took a chance and threw that caution out the window with a post I wrote in April on the GoDaddy Garage. The title was Are you getting too personal on your blog? and the subtitle was When to pump the brakes. The highlights of the post included the following:
- Don’t overshare
- Don’t write negatively about people you know
- Remember what you write can cost you friends and money
