When we visit the blogs of others, we expect to see unique writing styles, diverse topics and a variety of personalities. If every person wrote the same way, then reading would be very boring. Likewise, if they wrote just like we do, then what would be the point in reading their work?
Or am I wrong about this? Do we want other peoples’ blogs to have our writing style? When they write about a topic, do we want them to use the same words that we would if it were our blog? I would hope not.
However, I am learning that some people do want this. They hop around to various blogs, critique their writing styles and make suggestions on how they would have written the post instead.
Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate constructive criticism. However, there is a difference between constructive criticism and “let me re-write your post.”
Whose blog is it anyway? Ours or theirs?
