On being lectured - a grumble

Please don't lecture that I'm doing something wrong when I admit my blog posts can take a day to write. Don't tell me they should be shorter when you've never read one. It’s unhelpful insisting "the experts say" they should only take twenty minutes.

You don't have a blog, have never read one and don't "do" social media. One day you'll realise it’s challenging to find the right words for your particular audience, to share a serious message which can be readily understood.

It’s not easy.

"Experts" aren't always right and it’s worth taking time to share complex ideas thoughtfully.
Stop and think before you speak - is criticism helpful?

A drabble is a story written in 100 words. No more. No less.

Hi Sue - heartfelt post .. and so right - a blog is our opinion or idea, or article ... and you do write insightfully ...

Great drabble post though ... cheers Hilary
