Tuesday Tidbits #8- Go ahead and write that controversial post

Happy Tuesday all you awesome people! I hope you experience only the best things this week!

Today’s Tidbit comes from something I think a lot of bloggers experience at one time or another in their blogging journey: we have with an opinion that’s unpopular or controversial, and we get too nervous to post it!

But posting that controversial idea, whether it’s a review, a discussion, or just some unpopular opinions, can be the absolute best, for a few reasons!

First off, it often draws more attention to your blog! Of my five most popular posts, three of them were unpopular opinions of some kind or another. Plus, if I’m scrolling through my feed, and I see that someone has posted something I might disagree with, I’m more interested in reading it. I love seeing new perspectives on things!

Secondly, there’s no need to be nervous! The blogging community is amazing! As long as you stay respectful and open-minded when you write your opinion, the blogging community will do the same. So your post can lead to some incredible, surprising discussions!

So if you’ve ever felt nervous about writing a controversial post, I want to encourage you to go ahead and do it! It can lead to some pretty awesome stuff on your blog!

Thanks for reading!

  1. I’m the same! I love reading unpopular opinions, even ones I don’t agree with. It’s a great opportunity to challenge your opinions and find reasons to confirm what you might already think.

    I just think it’s important to encourage discussion and let the comments section be a healthy space to debate respectfully. I once commented on a post about why this specific blogger thinks other bloggers should not post negative reviews (an opinion I wholeheartedly disagree with) and I don’t think she ever responded or even approved it. Such a bummer. ^_^

    • That’s exactly it! If someone has an opinion different from mine, it gives me a chance to reevaluate what I think!

      It stinks that that blogger did that! The comments section should be a place for discussion, especially if you’re talking about something as important to the book blogging community as book reviews! Respectful debates can be fun and helpful, it sucks that she shut it down like that.
