As a blogger it’s important to show the good, the bad and the funny. So many times as bloggers we’re wrapped up in showing the good in products we decide not to share the bad. This doesn’t mean it’s open season but it does mean that sometimes there are things about products we’re not fond of. For instance, when reviewing Argan Oil, which I love, sometimes it doesn’t smell so great. While it does what it says and is all natural, the scent isn’t to my liking. Once absorbed into the skin the scent disappears but this is important to share. It doesn’t mean it’s a bad review, it shows that it’s an honest review.
Just because you didn’t receive a product you love or hate for the purpose of review on your website doesn’t mean you can’t share it. Sometimes it’s important to share things just because it’s who we are and what we love. It helps form our personality on our blogs. Helps show our personality so to speak. When PR and other companies are investigating your blog it helps you show who you are and that you’re honest.
Have something humorous going on in your house? Your kids or pets doing something funny. Share it. It doesn’t mean you have to share photos or videos of them, that is your choice. Do be sure though that if you are sharing things about your family that you don’t post things that violate their privacy. I see people post about Johnny pooping his pants at 9 and they show photos and a full name. That’s very inappropriate. I have seen moms not think about the rights of their children and post about drug addictions and such. Remember what we drill into our kids, once posted on the internet it can’t be retracted.
Post things that are funny, fun and uplifting about your family. Posts they’ll be proud of today and in the years to come. Videos that show your family growing and will entertain anyone that comes to visit your blog.
