"...everybody's got one."
There are challenges in providing advice. We've all been there and done that.
Trying to convince a seller that a listing is overpriced?
Trying to convince a buyer to up the offer if they REALLY want to get a home?
It's a tightrope, and you've got to be able to convey a message in a way that the audience will be willing to receive it.
The seller that is overpriced but REALLY does want to sell? They're probably going to be far more receptive to what you have to say than the "testing the market" seller.
And who hasn't had a buyer more interested in getting a bargain than getting a home?
Now add to the complexity of providing a message in a flat medium such as a blog post.
There's no body language.
There's no reading my facial expression to know if I'm smiling or torqued off.
And if it's someone's first visit to your blog, there's no past history to know your nature and intent.
One person might perceive a post as preaching, another person might perceive that exact same post as great stuff they can use.
The post to be read is identical for both readers, but different ends of the spectrum on receiving the words and applying their personal bias.
Each Tuesday I show up here to offer what I hope is helpful advice. Information to shorten a learning curve, avoid some potential pitfalls, make your life a little easier, make your time blogging more productive, maybe put some more dollars in your pocket.
What works for me may not work for you.
If doing the opposite of what I suggest is your path to blogging success in however you define "success", go for it.
You do you, I'll do me.
Until next Tuesday, just Ask An Ambassador if you need help,
