#fpq: What You Say vs. How You Say It (No. 106, Revisited)

Another rerun for this week…

In the context of blogging and writing, what do you think is more important: what you say or how you say it?

Both are important, obviously, but I have to say that, when you’re writing a blog post, the way you say things has to be given a little more emphasis.

Face it, I’m a smartass, and if I’m giving an answer to a question, I’ll do everything I can to make it entertaining. I’ve discovered that a funny picture, animation, or video can go a long way to making this happen.

I get this a lot

I find that, especially when answering difficult questions on contentious topics, humor can go a long way to soften the blow. Example from last week’s Share Your World…

Repetition works, too….

  1. I went through a period in early teens where some might’ve considered me to be a bit of a smart@ss. I don’t think I was trying to be. I just didn’t reign my words carefully. Being bluntly honest about everything is hard for others to hear. I eventually learned how sharp words can hurt someone’s feelings after my snarky, equally blunt aunt put me in my place. Getting your point across with humor is great to watch from afar but I’d hate to be the one on the receiving end, I think. đŸ™‚ I like your writing style and personality. Don’t change a thing!
