Blogging Under The Influence

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Elite 513.520.5305 SAL.2002007747

have a sipI think most of us have seen it.

The blog post or Facebook entry or comment where you just go "How many glasses of wine has THAT one had tonight???".

Things said that shouldn't have been said, but were.

And sometimes there's no fixing what's been done.

I've seen posts that if the agent's broker also saw, I'd bet good money the poster would be "seeking other job opportunities".

But booze and drugs (both legal and illegal) aren't the only risk to our social media presence. 

I may be an engineer, and that might have many think I'm an emotional automaton.  And while I've got a fairly thick skin and might be oblivious to more subtle cues, that doesn't make me impervious to reactions.

Another agent does something jerky?

A client says something out of line?

A "friend" turns out not to be a friend?

An unexpected tech issue sucking up our time to fix.

All things that can happen any given day of our lives.

And when those things happen, our mental state can be altered.

Today?  It's been good and bad, and I hit a daily double in that list above.

The result?  I know I'm a bit "off" in my mental attitude.

I know it's not a good night for me to write a consumer facing post.

I wouldn't want the tone of my mind to transfer over to my writing. 

I look at it this way, ANY one post may be my one chance to land or lose a client.  So why risk it tonight?  There are other days to cover other topics, when I'm not under the influence of agitation :)

So a little restraint is the recipe tonight.

Good mornign Bill. Sometimes "agitation" carries a bigger hangover than alcohol. Smart thinking. Enjoy your day!

One of the sorrows of that glass of wine combined with any form of interaction with others, is that the one who had the wine is the last one to know that it's affecting their judgment, thinking process, and social media interaction.  Combine that with Facebook, especially "private groups", twitter, snapchat, instagram, whatsapp, etc and even blogging here on Active Rain, and the person may wake up the next morning with a headache of regret... even if it was only one glass of wine.  The wise thing is stay away from public consumption social media when anything is affecting us that changes our normal way of dealing with people.   You're a wise man, Bill Spear.

I've seen plenty of it but not recently. I'll take your word for it. 

Do not drink & blog.

Hi Bill- my oops moments tend to come if I'm commenting without my contacts on. In our youth after a big party or outing with friends, Larry would ask me jokingly if he needed to apologize to anyone after the previous night's party.
