Maintaining a blog is a balancing act. Any blogger knows this. There is always the challenge of what and how much to share, how transparent we wish to be. Yesterday's post caused a bit of a stir. First of all, I want to thank all of you who left me such sweet and supportive comments, it meant the world to me. On the flip side, my post touched a nerve for someone who left me some pretty nasty anonymous comments.
This has me thinking that any good writer is bound to run into controversy now and then. After all, isn't it every writer's goal to inspire others? To make them feel? To hopefully touch someones life in a positive way? When our writing creates a strong reaction, whether positive or negative, I believe that is a telltale sign of our most powerful work.
Inspired Design is more than trying to provide readers with a mini escape from the doldrums of everyday life. It's my little niche where I try to inspire others as well as myself. After all, life isn't always as picture perfect as the images blogs portray. People want to know they are not alone in their challenges. If I have something to say that I think may help someone, then I'm going to say it.
Have any of you bloggers written a post that created controversy? What post created the biggest stir and brought out your readers emotions? Do you always play it safe or do you reveal your inner self with all of it's vulnerabilities?
