Blogger confidential is a series of 12 questions asked to 11 bloggers about the nitty gritty details of blogging. Everything from what prompts a blogger to pick up a book, to what happens when a book doesn't live up to its hype. This series was inspired by Wastepaper Prose's Author Insight series.
If you feel inspired by any of these questions, leave your answer in the comments, or create your own post!
This week's question:
Things posted on the internet last forever, and we’ve all posted or said something on Twitter that we later regret. Have you ever written something on your blog or twitter that you have regretted? And what did you do about it?
"I don’t usually run into that issue with my blog, but it has happened a few times on Twitter. It’s easy to forget just how many people see each and everything that you say or respond to! Luckily, I haven’t said anything too detrimental, but there have been times when I’m frustrated at another blogger and I’ll say something snarky. Never anything to the person and I would never name names for all to see, but I still should have kept the drama to myself. The few times that this has occurred, I’ve deleted the tweet and moved on. I think that’s the best policy. Stop the drama in its tracks, learn from it, and move on." Sara from The Hiding Spot

"There was one time where I wrote something that I regretted. Just because something is TRUE doesn't mean is should be said. I instantly apologized to the person I offended and removed my comment (the incident happened in a forum). Since I can get riled up pretty easily, I try to tell my husband about things I do, because he's a good meter as far as whether I've gone over the line or not." Trish from Hey Lady! Whatcha Reading
