What everyone needs to know, if they don’t already, is that nothing takes the place of good old fashioned personal contact and that wherever we go, we will be faced with challenges whether it's through the negativity in a blog or a rumour around a water cooler. I suppose it’s all in how we chose to deal with it that matters. All in all, there will be upsides and there will be downsides in everything we do. My suggestion: take the high road!
How many individuals or organizations in the world write a daily blog? According to JM Alarcon on Quora (https://www.quora.com/How-many-blog-posts-are-written-every-day), approximately 2.73 million posts are blogged daily. That blows my mind! Do people really want to be heard that badly? Or is it just free therapy?
Does blogging really help organizations bring in potential customers and employees, or maybe they are seeking volunteers? Is this a positive way to interact with the public? Seeking communication through blogging or social media gets the word out, but there is no personal contact.
What is it that individuals have to write about that is so spectacular, that they can’t chat about around the water cooler anymore? Can we not pick up the telephone and call Aunt Gracie to tell her about the lovely book we read and maybe about the pie we baked Saturday night.
