Feedback, Advice, and Helping Each Other Out

episode 36 of the Smutlancer podcast discusses giving and receiving feedback, criticism, and unsolicited ideas

I’ve benefited greatly from the feedback of my audience, the advice of other bloggers, and simply being told about things I might not have seen otherwise. While a lot of “advice” has to be taken with a grain of salt, some feedback and offers to share thoughts and ideas really can help us all. The hard part is knowing when it’s given in good faith and figuring out what to do with feedback when we get it.

In this episode:

  • This week’s episode is brought to you by QuickBooks Self Employed
  • In the past several weeks, I’ve been helped with good advice or ideas, and I’ve (tried) to help others with the same.
  • It’s hard to offer advice when you’re highly empathetic because you don’t know how it will be perceived.
  • But if we all rise together when we all help each other — and I think we do — then when we see something problematic or a way to help a fellow blogger be better, it’s important to say something.
  • Not call out — reach out.
  • If you get a message of advice, feedback, or why something is a problem, try to assume it was sent with the best intentions first.
  • When you give advice, do it with kindness and empathy — and knowing that you might be ignored or disagreed with.
  • And no, you don’t have to follow all feedback or advice you’re given, but sometimes doing so helps you in ways you can’t imagine.
