Blog Criticism

I began by reading: "... chronic experience of stress affects the area of the brain that governs stress response," Dr. Wilson said. "Unfortunately, that part of the brain also regulates memory." Or in other words, if you think distressing thoughts all the time, the brain might just hit the "delete all memories" button.
In response, I'm providing you with a link suggesting 10 thinking sins you might be commiting. Being a blogger, I printed out suggestion 8 for you:
8. Your blog sucks. It’s super lame. You should stop writing, because you’re a moron and I hope you never reproduce.
He then goes on to tell you why that isn't nice for either you or the recipient and offers this advice:
Solution: Learn to offer constructive solutions, first of all. Instead of telling someone their blog sucks, or that a post is lame, offer some specific suggestions for improvement. Help them get better. If you are going to take the time to make a comment, make it worth your time. Second, learn to interact with people in a more positive way — it makes others feel good and it makes you feel better about yourself. And you can make some great friends this way. That’s a good thing.
