I have recently taken up reading the comments people write after an article and find it rather amusing and almost better than the article itself… because there are people out there that seem to take what they wrote very seriously and when someone else comments on what they wrote (criticizing) them, and it leads to a form of a nasty exchange of words between two or more people who may not know each other…. What could be a nightmare is that the person is your neighbor and you don’t even know it…. Now that would be something!!!
Isn’t it so… when I would write my opinion about something that I can expect someone maybe to comment on it???? And if someone does I have to be prepared to handle what that other person wrote. At least in theory..
But then there in the space for comments people write little stories about something relating to the article… I wonder if they are trying to tell me something or trying to show off???? Of course I would not ask them because it is a proven fact that most things that are written and read by someone else are misunderstood and so I think I won’t write anything and just stick to reading the comments.
Though sometimes my fingers are burning to comment on something, but hey it is too much work for me to write something in that little space and maybe it too would be misunderstood, so I will steer away from it!!
I have even seen when someone writes that they like the article; there is someone out there who doesn’t.. It seems you just cannot make everyone happy when a person writes something…
I am just happy that I don’t work for a newspaper and have to write articles that people can comment on. That would make me cry, because when I took hours maybe even weeks to write something and I receive a load of negative comments … and then too maybe even get in trouble with the boss because that person saw that the public didn’t like what I wrote……. I better stay clear of that career path and stay where I am.!!! I feel better already….
I think to write well is a somewhat demanding job and I will leave that up to the professionals out there who can handle all the comments and I will continue reading all the comments…Thank you to all the people out there who write comments after articles… You make my life interesting!!
