Feedback From You, The Reader
The blogoshpere is an interesting place. I’m sure I have said that before, many times. It’s certainly a place where writers (like me) can engage with an audience (albeit a smallish one) and learn more about your reading preferences and about what type of writing resonates with you and what doesn’t.
Sometimes though a writer makes mistakes and chooses inappropriate or tricky titles that intend to catch attention but instead can offend or ‘turn off’ a reader. I think I made such an error last week, with a post title that began with the words, Tongue Mutilation. Eeeeek….it even makes my skin crawl to mention it, now.
Horror, Gasp – It’s Halloween
The thing is that that particular post actually expressed my own aghast about the fact that such a procedure exists!! It was a kind of protest post.
Therefore, the fact that I received some comments (not published here) that said things like ‘Thanks, what a great way to lose weight (or similar)..’ and then left a link to a site selling diet pills, kind of threw me a bit. Or, since it’s Halloween, spooked me, a bit. What were those readers thinking, I wondered??
So I will just say it here again, in case my post was misread by some, that I STRONGLY DISLIKE AND DO NOT ENDORSE IN ANY WAY, WEIGHT LOSS METHODS THAT DO NOT FULLY RESPECT THE HUMAN CONDITION. And that covers quite a lot of them.
You, The Amazing Creation
You and every other human being on the planet, are more special than that. Rather than being ‘an assembly of body parts’, you are a multidimensional being that deserves an approach to change in your life (such as a change to a healthier lifestlye) that encompasses all aspects of you; your heart, mind and body. Any approach that excludes this truth actually saddens me.
In the coming weeks therefore, I have decided to share a few extracts from my book, Reframe Weight Loss to help get you started on your weight loss journey or perhaps to give you a boost along if you are already on one. So please, stay tuned!!
In the meantime, I am adding a link here to an article about self reflection and happiness, that you may find interesting. It is by an inspirational lady, called Marala Scott and her article may be read here.
Marala is a person who greatly respects the human condition and is doing amazing things to make a postive difference to the people she connects with. I hope you enjoy her site.
I also hope to see you back here next time! Until then, keep caring for yourself in a positive and healthy way and don’t read anything that begins with the words …..ah well, you know what they are……eeek!!
Oh and Happy Halloween!!
