There are so many passionate bloggers, we work hard, we share and boost up each other and somehow we just end up with negative feedback.
How can you overcome the negative feedback? Sometimes you just have to ignore it, send the person who is saying negative things about you, send them some LOVE and or perhaps just ask them what’s this all about? Take the high road in a situation. How can you support the person even though you don’t like what they’ve said about you?
Negative feedback can still be a great thing. Here’s some things you can do to use the comments, feedback to write your next article. Take the comment and ask yourself if you were really like this, how would you combat it? Post the comments in a text editor, do some research about the topic and write about it. Do you best to come up with 10 tips, then thank the person who gave you the negative comments.
What is a successful blog to you? Does it mean you have hundreds of subscribers? Does it mean you are making money with your blog? Does it mean you share content and your expertise?
How can you take advantage of the negative feedback?
1. Write a blog post about it – as above
2. Ask the person who gave you a negative comment to expand on it, or perhaps be a guest blogger for your site.
3. Be open to new opportunities by stepping up and asking why they felt this way about you.
Not only can other bloggers give you negative feedback, it can also come from Hackers who for whatever reason want to create a BIG mess for you. This has happened to me several times over the past 2 weeks. Heart@Work and then Sedona Pies was compromised. At first I was really annoyed, as if I haven’t got more important things to do than spend my time cleaning out my sites, by spending hours doing it myself, asking for help – and then other shit pops up. Having webs sites/blogs need care and attention. This was a great reminder to me of how much I haven’t given to my sites. I just said, “Thank you!”
What did I learn from this experience:
1. Make sure to keep everything updated, even if this means staying up to date with hackers, the news etc.
2. Install security plugins – I have 2 now. All in one WP Security and Wordfence.
3. If you templates are outdated – keep them updated as well. Code does get old.
4. There is only so much one can do – don’t stress! It will only get harder.
5. It’s a great time to clean out our comments, make sure all the links still work on your site.
