Should I Write My Honest Opinions or What Others Want to Hear?


Very good question! Should we write our own honest opinions, or just stay safe and write in a neutral tone of voice? I was asked the same question, and in fact, I was a bit reluctant to write in my own words when I first started The Equinox Fashion Blog. I was afraid what if the readers didn't like what I was saying, then they would hate me for good. I am a very straight forward person, I say things bluntly, and I don't hold my words back. This is why I tend to speak less in person ha! In this world, there are a lot of people who accept the truth from the mouth, yet there are also some who prefer to listen to only the good stuff (at least just fake it!). So, the question is what should we write? In my life, I only have two choices in my head 'go big or go home' If you want your readers to hear your 'own' voice, then I don't see why you should hesitate to say something. However, if you are afraid of what you are saying going to cause a turmoil in your online sphere, then just stay safe. It's all your choice really. 



THIS IS OUR BLOG, WE CAN WRITE WHATEVER WE WANT (AS LONG AS IT IS NOT A CYBER BULLYING OR DISCREDIT OTHERS)


I am gonna say one more time that we can write whatever we feel like. This is our blog, and we have every right to control it. In fact, being honest online is such a hero. We have 150% of power to say our opinions, though, they may affect negatively on other readers. I know the feeling of being hated by just the words (some can even hate us from the #selfie for no reason). The moment when people judge from what they can superficially see online is horrible, but that shouldn't stop any of us from sharing our thoughts. As long as, we are not writing to discredit others, or going extreme in a politic or religion matters, I think that's fine. Remember when I wrote about the downfall of shitty fake likes and followers on Instagram? I had already known that there would be people who didn't like what I was going to say. First, what I said was true and they couldn't accept the fact that they were the ones who played a dirty trick in order to become famous. Second, that's my opinion and I spoke from my heart. I write my blog from what I see with no regret. If any of you are aiming to say something on a social media, then consider it 3 times before publishing the article because you know it is a big deal.





NOTHING PERSONAL IN WRITING AGAINST OTHERS (AS LONG AS IT DOESN'T POINT TO JUST ONE PERSON)


Write it, admit it, and deal with the consequence. There will be audiences who love and hate of what we say, but it is alright :) There's nothing personal and we shouldn't worry about what other bloggers would think about us that much. They don't know you in person, so why giving a shit? If they don't like what you write, then they can just go to some other blogs, right? I actually love when people leave me a comment that against my idea because it shows that they read it! It's better than those who comment for the comment's sake anyway. 

Just be yourself :)

มีคำถามที่หลายๆ คนสงสัยคือ เราควรจะเขียนบล๊อคในสิ่งที่เราคิด ซึ่งแน่นอนว่าความคิดของเราอาจจะกระทบกับอีกหลายๆ คน หรือเราควรจะ เพลย์ อิท เซฟ อยู่กับการเขียนที่มีเนื้อหาเป็นกลางมากที่สุด? ไม่มีใครที่อยากโดนเกลียดโดยสิ่งที่เขียนออนไลน์ใช่ไหมคะ? แต่ส่วนตัวคิดว่าการเขียนที่ออกมาจากใจจริงๆจะทำให้คนเขียนมีความเป็นตัวของตัวเองมากกว่า เขียนในเสียงของตัวเอง ความคิดเห็นที่มีต่อเรื่องต่างๆ ไม่ว่าจะเป็นการใช้ชีวิต โซเชียล มีเดีย หรือ อื่นๆ อีกมากมาย จำได้ไหมที่ ดิ อิควินอกซ์ แฟชัน เขียนเรื่องการซื้อยอดไลค์ในกลุ่มคนบางพวกที่ทำให้ตัวเองดังและป๊อป? จริงๆ ก่อนที่จะเขียนก็รู้อยู่แล้วหละว่าการเขียนแบบนั้นจะต้องมีผลต่อกลุ่มคนจำนวนมากอย่างแน่นอน แคร์ไหม? ไม่ค่อยนะ เพราะมันเขียนออกมาจากใจเลยไม่รู้ว่าจะมานั่งกังวลทำไม ถ้าคนที่เห็นด้วยมันก็น่าดีใจที่มีคนคิดเหมือนกัน แต่ถ้าคนที่ไม่เห็นด้วย มันก็โอเคนะ เพราะมันแสดงให้เห็นว่าคนอื่นสิ่งที่เราเขียนจริงๆ เป็นตัวของตัวเอง เขียนเรื่องราวที่ออกมาจากใจเนี่ยแหละ เวิร์คสุด!

  13. Omg, your glasses are spot on! I wish I could be completely honest and blunt on my blog, but ever since people I actually know started to read my blog, I had to watch what I say a bit more. Sigh. Wish I could be more like you!

  18. I totally agree that you should be as honest as possible. Sure in the beginning I think all bloggers are safe and neutral but quickly find their flow and get to the truth. Not everyone is going to like you but there are others who will.
    Great post!

  20. You should definitely write honestly about whatever you want. As long as you're not disrespectful, you shouldn't restrict yourself!

  26. I agree! I think one of the huge advantages of having a blog is that we are definitely free to write what we want :) And I am very displeased if e. g. a cooperation partner wants to change my content - as I don't allow this! Like your cool look with the denim shorts!

  27. Yet more great advice Gail - it's best to simply 'be yourself', so long as it never involves harming others :) I'm actually glad you wrote a post on people buying likes/followers, as it can be so frustrating when you see that going on in the blogging world! Have a lovely week..

  28. First off, how awesome are those sunglasses!? I LOVE THEM!!!! I couldn't agree wth you more and what you've shared here is one of the reasons I love and admire both you and your blog, you say the truth and how you feel and I appreciate that as your reader. I just read the other post you linked about likes and follows on Instagram, too, again, so true. The fact of the matter is that there are always going to be a bunch of people who don't want to hear or deal with the truth because then they may just feel guilty of seeing a reflection of themselves exposed in that truth, which is good! I believe that's the only way we can change for the better is to feel uncomfortable once in a while and purposefully work towards improvement. Thanks so much for sharing, beauty, I enjoyed both the read and outfit inspo as always! Have a great week ahead, my beautiful friend!
