Three "rules" of blogging on ActiveRain

By
Real Estate Agent with Dominion Real Estate Partners, LLC, Scottsdale, AZ SA582226000

I've long adhered to three "rules" of commenting on ActiveRain and, today, I broke two of them.

 

1.  If I see a blog which enrages me, I will just pass over it and not even comment.

 

2.  If I strongly disagree, I will write a PROFESSIONALLY worded comment.

 

Well, today, I was so PO'ed by a blog, I broke two of "my rules of ActiveRain blogging."  I let my anger get the best of me and wrote a very scathing and, probably, unprofessional response.  I felt better after doing it, but felt remorse because I doubt it got through to the writer of the blog because of my lack of professionalism. 

 

A while later, I received a notice via ActiveRain telling me the blogger was deleting my comment because "my tone was a bit nasty."  Okay, I deserved that. 

 

Later, after I had the time to cool down, I follow MY THIRD RULE FOR ACTIVERAIN BLOGGING - I picked up the phone to personally apologize.  Unfortunately, I got a voice mail, but I said what I had to so say, "I'm sorry."

So, next time I write something unprofessional in your incendiary blog, feel free to call me on it - in writing, by deleting me, whatever.  I should never have been so unprofessional, but I felt the blog was SO WRONG on SO MANY LEVELS.  I just need to remember to be a professional.

 

To any ActiveRain members I've been nasty to, please know that I'm truly sorry - I love ActiveRain and the opportunity to get to know so many people.  I also love to be able to agree to disagree.  But, being professional at every turn is one thing I remembered from one of my teachers when getting my MBA - professionalism comes first.

 

Have a great weekend everyone.

Juli, I don't delete comments even if they are unprofessional or rude. I am disappointed when I see these kinds of comments but I understand how sometimes our emotions just get away from us. If the commenter rethinks his position and then deletes it, that's his perogative.

What was the third rule?? I've lashed out when something strikes me, to the point of people I know coming to me and reminding me that the public sees them. I'm trying to chill more these days.

Eric, MY third rule - pick up the phone and personally apologize.  When I'm wrong, I'm wrong.

Great rules for us all. It takes a lot more to apologize than it does to click on by. Good for you. I think I will try and follow your rules from now on. Great advice.
