What do you think about my blog? Should I change my style?

  1. Hello.
    I have a blog about reviewing and the such.
    I was wondering if anyone could check it out and tell me if I'm being too rough with it?
    Should I change my style and write politely and the such?

    Thank you very much! I appreciate it.

    The blog I need help with is

  2. Errr, I forgot to add the blog url.
    I'm sorry, ;P

  3. As you have katagelasticism, I don't see how you can help yourself. I'm sure you have an audience out there.

    BTW, your blog is linked to your username. No worries.

  4. Depends on what your intent is. If your intent is to use profanity and demean the disabled by using terms like "retarded" you are succeeding. I can tell you that after reading a couple of your posts, I realized it was not for me, but that is just me I guess...

  5. Thank you for your honesty.
    I honestly don't know what my intent is. Maybe just to vent out.

    I agree that you use the word "retarded" too much. There are a lot of other words you can use that won't potentially alienate/offend part of your audience.

    I also think you need to remember that you're writing for an audience, so remember not to use vague pronouns. For example, on the Rhianna post you said, "Apparently this video is the most horrible video ever made according to these people." Who are "these people?" Is there a specific group? Commenters on a post?

    Anyone can say something is "stupid," it's when you explain *why* you think something is stupid that it becomes interesting. Keep working on it!

  7. Thank you very much Plastic! I shall improve my writing.
