Blogger Tip: Don’t Try To Change Opinions..Just Give Your OwnPosted by Robert Littal on Nov 17, 2010 in Blog | 1 comment
Facts are undeniable.
Opinions are like the ocean they range far and go deep.
Individuals who are successful with their blogs and independent sites give strong and compelling opinions. One mistake though that a lot of young bloggers make is they close their mind off to other people’s opinions.
They waste time and energy trying to change opinions. You see them in social media sites like Twitter and Facebook defending their posts like new born babies.
When a person comes to your site, it doesn’t matter the reason why they are there, just remember they are reading or listening because they are interested in your opinion.
Doesn’t mean they will agree with it.
Many young bloggers are worried about being liked. They believe that part of being successful is being universally loved. In reality, that is something that is impossible to do.
The more popular you become, the more push back you will receive. You just have to be able to deal with it.
It is ok to correct readers or listeners who have the facts wrong, but it isn’t your job to change opinions. It is your job to give them.
What people decide to do with that, you can’t control.
If you want people to respect your opinions, be sure to respect there opinions as well. You will notice that even your harshest critic, in the end will turn out to be your biggest fan.
