4 Things You Can’t Be When Running Your Blog Business | Madamenoire

Mo

If your gut tells you to pass, you probably should despite the promises of milk and honey. More than likely, your projects will never get off the ground. Too indecisive. This nugget of advice may seem like the exact opposite of too quick to say yes but it isnt. The indecision that Im referring to has a lot to do with hiring and productivity. If someone is working below your expectations, consider having one warning/difficult conversation and then letting them go if you dont see a turnaround soon thereafter. Keeping employees that are not a good fit for your company not only slows down productivity and costs you money, it simultaneously undermines your leadership credibility with other employees or even outside people that have to work with a lackluster employee. Thin-skinned. Not everyone is going to like you in the blogosphere that includes readers, fellow bloggers, and anyone else in between. Your goal as a blogger is to be professional, respectful, informative, and run your own race. Not everyone is going to be down for you (despite what they say), so dont take things personally when calls dont get returned and emails go unanswered.

Blogging platform Medium now lets you block accounts – SlashGear

Medium, though meant for the written word, still has a very implicit social aspect. You can comment on a blog post via a pop-out sidebar, so interaction is a s key as unique blog posts. Saying they want the platform to be a safe place for everyone to share their stories and ideas, Medium has introduced the ability to block accounts. Rather than force users to suffer trolls or harassment, Medium is giving us an out. Blocking is nothing new for social platforms; all major services have some form of it. Medium was launched as a straightforward blogging platform, so theyve come around to social a bit slower than others whos purpose it was to connect people with each other, not connect readers with ideas. Medium users can block accounts when they visit a profile, or under the More tag at the top of a blog post. When you block an account, that person/people will no longer be able to see your profile, and will not be able to read your posts when logged into that account. You wont see their comments on posts, and of course will no longer see their blog posts.
