Folks on this one I could really be on a rant about profanity on blogs. It is their right to do so and it’s my right not to participate in that garbage! When someone uses profanity to make their point they are showing their lack of intelligence to show how really small-minded they are and that is sad. As comedians will tell you that it’s easy to make people laugh with the use of profanity. It’s an art form to do it without it. I think as we write we should have a sense of responsibility to our readers. The thing is if you use it a lot in your personal life then it will naturally bleed into your writing.
Now let me make this clear. I have used profanity ( especially on home repairs) and I will again. My late father taught me that if men are talking among themselves that’s one thing but when a woman shows up that stuff stops!
But then again if you don’t have self-filters in your personal life then you won’t have them in a public forum.
For those who really love to write and share it with others, we face a reality. The reality is that we have no idea if anyone is reading what we write or getting something out of it? Or for that matter are they sharing it with someone else? I might write something today that doesn’t mean anything to someone else for years. So it’s a reality you just have to accept. I think one of the biggest mistakes writers make is that they want to be writing all kinds of different things That’s not me.
I do have some general guidelines for my writing. The first is that women never have to worry about clicking on my site and finding offensive content. The will be no political or social issues written about.
My blog here is just observations I have made through the years.
They will normally be about a 2 to 5-minute read. So enjoy!
For those of us who love to write we have many bad habits. However, without a doubt the biggest one is that we are never satisfied with what we write. We are always tweaking something. It could be a phrase, sentence structure or punctuation. ( which I get real lazy about) Like most people we fall into certain habits and for writers redundancy is a real trap. Just like in speech patterns we fall into some of the same traps in writing. Something else that all people who write is not to rely on spell check to ( that was intentional) much. It should have been too ( which means also) So writers will continue to tweak this and that and that will never change.
