As part of last week’s giveaway, we asked you to tell us your favorite office supply in honor of Scissors, Paper, Mouse. Some of you are pen snobs (I am too). A few of you hoard binder clips. Others love note pads. (Don’t we all?) What’s me office weakness? I can’t resist cute magnets and/or push pins. Though I have no need for push pins. But they’re so cute.
Today, Young House Love posted their thoughts on how to deal with negative comments. Fellow bloggers, you probably know how this feels. While 99% of the comments we receive are incredibly nice, somehow it’s much easier to let the negative comments get to you. I remember the first mean comment I received. And it did hurt my feelings. We’ve gotten a few more since then, but it’s getting easier to handle.
Anything house related, that is. When it comes to my kids, I’m a mama bear protecting my babies. Say what you want about our house. That’s what we blog about. Everyone has different taste and everyone is entitled to their opinion. Sure our kids make an appearance from time to time, but usually in a very limited setting.
All that to say, we appreciate your opinions, whether positive or negative. Please find a way to relate your criticism in a positive way and everyone will be happy. No hurt feelings. I’ve chosen to share our house, projects, and stories because we want to help and inspire others.
What are your thoughts on constructive feedback versus criticism?
