Be Honest... Do You Tell a Friend She Has Spinach in Her Teeth?
This is a dilemma all of us have experienced. Do we tell someone they have something in their teeth... that their dinner napkin is stuck to their clothing... or egads.. the TP is stuck on their heel!
Come on... you know the feeling... do you look away and pretend you don't notice? Your hope is that either someone else will come along and tell them or you figure if you don't "notice" it, it will disappear.
The same thing can hold true in our business dealings and in our blogging. If you are reading the post of a fellow blogger here at Active Rain what do you do if you see that perhaps something is awry in it? If they're a newbie, do you ever reach out to them to offer some suggestions to enhance their posts...such as adding pictures and using bold letters?
And even for those of us who have some time under our belts at blogging can need some assistance as well.
So I'd like to give a shout out to a fellow Texan, great blogger and a new friend... Deb Brooks.
Deb gave us the fun and enlightening recent Diary of a Realtor -Why I Chose Real Estate Contest. In case you missed it, I would urge you to head to the link and check out the winners but also read the entries of so many of the members here. I loved learning how so many of us... and that includes Realtors, Stagers, Lenders, Home Insectors and others in the related fields, came to our chosen fields.
In a post I wrote recently about Google Circles, Deb was kind enough to email me and inquire about the program I used to write it. It turned out the script was coming across small and difficult to read.
She didn't have to take the time to do that... she could have just passed on it and gone on to another blog. And, others might have done the same. I would have lost possible readers for all my hard work.
So I ask you, what do you do when your fellow blogger has "spinach in their teeth"?
