Are you a blogger? Do you write informative content? Just the same way you keep people informed similarly is the same way people also get to know you. You notice that you will get to know that people also give you feedback. At this point, you get to understand yourself more with an aim to change. There are two ways of doing it. It is either you use it for your benefit or rather use it to tear you. We are in the era of digital technology where the internet never forgets. As a blogger, you have to have new and fresh ideas all the time to keep the blog active and running. Remember you can also monetize it and get money out of it. The best way to get information is
- Reading a lot
- Attending seminars and events
- Linking the blog to social media platforms.
While writing you will notice your strengths and weaknesses. It is now upon you to choose to work on your weaknesses for your benefits. There are many ways in which you can link the blog to social media platforms to allow you to get direct feedback from people. You will write a controversial article with the hope of just being yourself and getting people’s opinions. This is the time you notice that this is a trending article with all the feedback and this will be both good and bad.
What is the good and bad side of negative feedback?
When people tend to be negative on the things that you do then you only need to weigh them. This is to make sure that you look at it whether it is an honest or a joke. How do you know when one’s comment on social media is honest? People never think the same. The moment you find that most of the people align themselves with the same opinion then there is a possibility that this is actually honest unlike when it just forms one individual.
The bad side of negative feedback comes from you. The way you perceive someone’s opinion matters a lot on how it will affect you psychologically. Whether the opinion is negative or positive you only need to stay positive and do what you can base on your conscious.
What is the good and bad side of positive feedback?
Everyone wants to hear something positive about themselves. Just like the kids, the moment you always applaud them even for the little things that they do then you notice that they tend to change and become better. Naturally, positive feedback encourages someone to do better and be good at whatever they do. The only challenge comes when you have too much positive feedback. You tend to think you are the best and maybe it could be a sarcastic comment. You will lack room for growth. As much as it boosts your confidence levels your growth rate diminishes since you do not have the challenge to improve on your writing skills.
All in all, as a blogger you must just learn to weigh on the feedback and decide on what to do about them at an individual level.
