Whole lotta shoutin’ goin’ on

Is it just me or does it seem as if everyone’s shouting more these days?
Studies tell us parents who use loud angry language to discipline their children actually damage the child’s trust, scares them and can cause them to grow into angry, abusive adults. It is also considered, by some child psychologists and counselors as emotional abuse.
Shouting is hazardous to the health of the shouter AND the shoutee. I wrote about all the shouting going on on my For His Glory blog today.
Here’s a link. See what you think. Do you agree?

Why use profanity in blog posts?

Someone once told me the reason people use profanity is they don’t have a large enough vocabulary to choose another word.
I don’t know if that’s true; but for me, profanity has no place in our blog posts. It has little to do with my faith and much more to do with writing style and etiquette. When I see profanity in a blog post, it usually indicates to me the writer wants to use it to express anger or resentment or disappointment/frustration.
It also shows me the writer has little or no respect for their readers. Some readers might not care. If you put off even one reader with your profanity, however, is that to your credit or your detriment? Does your profanity embellish your descriptions? Does it help express your emotion in your post? Are you telling your readers that, as a writer, you can’t find a more civil, courteous, effective way of expressing emotions?
Each of us, as writers, wanting to communicate with others, will decide each time we post how we’re going to say what we want to say. Are we considering our readers when we write? We can write with, or without, using profanity. One way reflects a writer who wants to improve their craft and communicate with all readers effectively and with consideration.
