Publishing Without A Care In The World


There is a large percentage of bloggers out there who are afraid to share the things that they are genuinely interested in or the things that they truly believe in.

And, why is it that some people are not willing to bare their soul via their blog posts?

Because they fear being ridiculed by others.

Dear friend, the God’s/Goddess’s truth is that there will always be a bunch of people who will ridicule what you have posted.

So, forcing yourself into the people-pleasing role will be a difficult one because you will always be walking on proverbial eggshells.

Therefore, the wise approach is to publish the types of blog posts that matter most to you.

You Are Entitled To Your Opinion

All personal bloggers are aware of the fact that they are entitled to their opinion (Those opinions of theirs usually take the form of blog posts and comments).

The issue here is that some opinionated people think that their view is the right one and the views of other people are flawed.

Honestly speaking, no one is forced into accepting our opinion whenever we publish a so-called controversial blog post; what is intolerable is other people being disrespectful to us for sharing our point of view.

We are in no way forcing our readers to agree with us; we want them to form their own opinions in the end.

If a reader disagrees with us and they wish to voice their opinion in our blog’s commenting section, we expect them to do it in a diplomatic manner.

Cussing, name-calling and looking to start an online fight via our blog’s commenting section only displays the small-mindedness of the commenter.

On a positive note, WordPress is filled with lots of open-minded people (If they disagree with you, they do it in a way that is polite).

You Need To Be The Brave Type Of Blogger

The brave type of blogger is the person who is not afraid to publish whatever it is that they want on their blog (After all, it is their blog and they have every right to do so).

Hey, the brave type of blogger knew from the start that not everyone who reads their blog posts are going to agree with them (And, in his or her mind, that is absolutely okay).

The whole premise of they publishing their blog post is to share their unique point of view and not necessarily to get numerous people to agree with them (If people happen to like the message within their blog post, it is not viewed as a big deal; besides, there will always be those that resonate with the messages in their blog posts).

Are you the brave type of blogger or the type of blogger who plays it safe?

You might as well be the brave type of blogger because you will still come across disagreements from others in spite of you doing your very best to play it safe.

You Will End Up Publishing Nothing If You Are So Eager For Other People’s Approval

Many of us wanted the approval of our peers when we were in school.

A lot of us wanted (or still want) the approval of our co-workers at our place of employment.

So, it is not surprising that a large number of bloggers would like to acquire the approval of their fellow bloggers.

Now, I can bet the last dollar in my wallet, that there were bloggers who refused to publish a blog post of theirs due to the fact that it had a strong probability of it being disapproved by others (As a result of their fear, they ended up not publishing it).

Dear friend, I want you to always remember, that being authentic requires that you speak your truth (And, in all honesty, not everyone will be appreciative of you sharing it on the world wide web).

Final Thoughts

One of the harsh lessons of life is to always remember that it is not our job to ponder upon what people think about us and our blog posts.

As bloggers, we need to publish our blog posts without any fear of ridicule from others.

We must always be brave enough to publish the types of blog posts that resonate well with our inner being.

Do keep in mind that there will always be disagreements (What matters most is the manner in which we handle those disagreements; we can choose to be warlike and ignorant or peaceful and diplomatic).

We must always speak our truth (And, it must be done without the expectation of being on the receiving end of agreement or disagreement).

Dear friend, when you can become comfortable in your own skin, you will finally put aside the fear of what other people think of you and your blog posts (Once you have mastered those things, you would be publishing without a care in the world).

  1. I have one fan I just can’t make it right for, he will ridicule each and every one of my posts. But that’s alright with me, so I know he’s reading extra carefully and analytically and he’s factually reading. every. single. post! 🙂 We write our blogs for all kinds of audiences. And while I guess my audience is mostly female and from all over the world we have to accept that some American males are reading the blog as well. 🙂

    1. 🙂 People from around the world are interested in Linux. So, I expect you to have a viewership that is comprised of both sexes.

      Hmm. A person ridiculing each and every one of your blog posts (I am making an educated guess that person is deeply opinionated).

      Thank you for participating in the discussion, Orca.


  2. This is why I rarely post. I actually like to write about all different topics and hope to have content that appeals to a wide audience. Except, I have a lot in my drafts folder that never saw the light of day. I want to publish so badly. I promise myself I will. I start a post, then think no one will care or what will people think of me or who am I to even speak. Who will listen? Who’s even reading it. If they are, I don’t want to be judged. Will they even understand what I’m trying to say? My mind gets crazy. Then I back out. Thanks for posting this. I guess commenting on it is my first step towards my commitment to try to post more.

  3. Very informative as usual. I’ve never been afraid to post the kinds of things I wanted on my site. Though I will admit that I do put off certain movie reviews based on subject matter. I try to remain neutral, but sometimes my personal opinion isn’t gonna please everyone.

  4. You come up with quality posts on blogging. After identifying my needs and reading your posts, I can take effective decisions. Thank you, Renard.

  5. Excellent post, Renard! I lean toward playing it safe in a way. Since I write mostly poetry, I can usually make my point without offending anyone. I want my blog to be a safe place and I don’t want to spend my time sorting through disrespectful comments. You can’t please all the people all the time.

  6. I agree 100 percent. As a professional ghost writer, I “interview” my clients before working with them. If someone says, “I don’t want to be judged” I tell them, “Then you are not ready to write a book.” Writing a book means you WILL be judged. Not everyone will like your book. Be prepared for criticism, bad reviews (as well as good ones of course), and jealous friends who leave you because writing a book is a big accomplishment and haters will hate. You have to have a tough skin to be a writer. But always remember, if people are hating, they are READING! So that in itself is a huge accomplishment.

  7. I read the comment on one blogger I subscribed to…the persom pointed out a typo in a word and stated it was a silly mistake…but the blogger wrote respectfully thanking the reader for pointing it out although he could have omitted the ‘how silly’ remark. I think we can stand up to such opinions in a respectful way. But we can’t stop people from posting uncalled for remarks. We could review comments before publishing though. I think we should consider it a privilege to comment on another person’s blog and do it with respect and care. Do unto others what you would like others to do unto you. Have a great day ahead!

  8. Another great post, Renard. Most of my posts are niche-specific and there is not much controvesy within the niche that would enflame someone. However, on the few times I may have posted something that was a little more contentious, I believe it’s always best to be thoughtful, friendly and civil.

    I find even if you post something that others hate or disagree with, stating it with civility and thought work better than just doing it sharply, or for some shock factor.

    in the end, we all have opinions and our blogs are our own and we should be free to write what we wish. 🙂

  9. Preach Renard. You are absolutely right. I do consider myself a Brave Blogger and I publish a niche that excites me such as Mens Fashion and if you want to have fun whilst blogging, one should evade this thought of what will others think or what if they criticise my blogs?

    I mean it’s your life, your content and your idea, so why should you care about public opinion. 💯

  10. This is so on point! I am someone who do not like arguments and uncomfortable in voicing my opinions in public. It has led to so much suppressed rage and stress and anxiety that I almost lost it. That’s when I decided to start a blog. I write what comes to my mind at any time of the day. And I don’t mince my words. It actually works. I feel so much at peace when I finally just let it all out. My husband always says that I am like a ticking bomb. But, now it’s so much better. And your post is just a sweet cherry on top!

  11. So, so true! I always have this mindset and have sometimes been tentative of clicking the Publish button but 9 times out of 10, published a post anyway. Totally agree, authenticity is the only way. The fact you choose to have a blog in the first place was to express your personal thoughts where you couldn’t so easily elsewhere so it seems ridiculous not to be true to yourself. You’re only acting if you’re not.

    Oh dear, this post has set me off! Ha ha, glad you shared this, Renard 🙂

  12. I have been nervous sometimes sharing my religious beliefs or posting stories about our total lack of telling the history of blacks in our country (since there is so much argument now on CRT). Still, you are right – it’s my blog and while I share my opinions I certainly do not expect everyone to agree with me – and I know I can learn from those who might disagree.

  13. An excellent content post Renard – l don’t play it safe or play it brave, l play it to my tune. Some things l will post will not always resonate well with others and some things will, but whatever happens as Frank Sinatra said “I did it my way.” 🙂

  14. It’s so true, some of the readers mentioned it’s hard to please everyone even if you’re playing it safe so might as well blog away to your heart’s content. Times too short

  16. Well, in answer to your question, I’m not brave, but still, I write, blog, do podcasts and dare to share my published books. If people don’t like what I say, they don’t have to read what I write. ✍️💙✍️

  17. Hi Renard, I am Waqar and thank you for following my blog and reading it daily. I thought of visiting your blog today and found this post which is so like my mentality. Indeed, one should not care about what other people say. I also follow this school of thought! I write whatever comes to my mind and then hit the publish button.

    1. 🙂 Hello, Waqar. You are welcome. You have a wonderful blog (It is worthy of being followed).

      I am pleased to know that you are comfortable with publishing anything that you like on your blog.

      Do enjoy the rest of your day.


    1. 🙂 Well, that is one aspect of finding your voice.

      Publishing without a care in the world is having a level of bravery that allows you to publish whatever it is that you desire on your blog without being fearful of what anyone thinks.

      Thank you for participating in the discussion.
