I have always believed that if you want to teach or explain something to anyone, examples are the best way to make them understand things easily and effectively. Examples help people to figure out things in an easy way and they understand what the person is trying to tell them. Examples help them imagine the scenario and then understand the situations.
So, what is the “Theory of Examples” doing in blogosphere? And Why I am telling you that use examples in your blog post? Actually, I am writing this post because I always use examples in my post whenever I feel necessary. Majority of my posts are generated from my own experiences or what I think and so it becomes obvious that I have examples to support my posts.
Using examples are not a bad way of blogging. It has its advantages
- People understand easily- This is the best advantage. If you are trying to tell some thing and not getting it right in the simple language, use examples. People will perceive the situation easily and their words will reach you.
- Everyone love praise- If you are using a blog or blogger as the example, I am sure when they will come to know about it, they will love it. This will help you good relations and as they say, networking is the next big thing in blogosphere/
But you have to be a little cautious and skeptical before you start using them because if you are too lousy to use them everywhere, the strategy will backfire.
- Don’t make up situations- Just to get attention, never write that is not true or you have not experienced. For the sake of making relations with a popular blogger, do not start praising it without any reason. What you are writing should first convince you, and then only it can convince others.
- If you are criticizing someone, do not tell name- I do not know whether I should write this or not or will it be a negative for my blog but I need to tell you this. You visited X’s blog and read or saw something that you found strange. Now if you write about this and want to put him as an example, PLEASE REFRAIN FROM USING THE NAME. You might be 200% sure that you are correct but cannot blame anyone. It is their thinking and their blog and they have every right to write what they feel. I avoid using names and although I ask myself whether readers will believe me or not without the name, I never did and never will name anyone if I am criticizing someone.
To conclude, in my opinion, examples could be very handy in your posts if you use them in a truthful and effective manner. I would love to hear what you people have to say on this topic because to you people.
