Caution: Bloggers Are Not Your Counselors


Blogging friends, please keep in mind that many of us here are 15 to 20 years old. Even if you’re 25 and married, you’re still a kid. That’s how the news would describe you if you ended up there. I’ve barely just turned 30 and my mom still thinks I’m a baby. That’s the straight-up truth; let’s not deny that.

So if you’re asking for Life-Altering Advice or seeking the Answers to the Universe from some blogger you don’t know, please consider that even the wisest-sounding internet voice doesn’t know everything. Most of us have hardly been through much of anything.

I would actually propose that most “advice” here is just flowery, modified, spur-of-the-moment, this-is-what-I-would-do fluff that the blogger hardly even follows, and would not work in the gritty reality of an upside-down life. Most bloggers here don’t care about your well-being, but care about getting reblogs and followers and a fanclub.

This isn’t to take away from some wonderful, awesome blogs out there. But use caution. Don’t be intimidated by some high-dollar vocabulary and think, “This blogger knows the way, so I better ask him or I’m getting it wrong.”

I love you guys. Think critically.

  1. awww man… how do you expect us to peddle our off-the-cuff advice around here if you start telling people the truth? Just kidding. Actually, you make an excellent point with your words. It really is easy to sound like we know what we’re talking about when in actuality, we (at least I) know very little in the big scheme of things. We would probably do everyone a big favor and just proclaim, “We have found the Messiah! Come and see!” Blessings good friend.

    I could not say it any better. This is true! If you seek to find answers to your life through some blog you will greatly be decieved. All truth come from God our Father and Lord Jesus Christ. Which I only seek to point you to. Philippians 4:6-7 (Look it Up)
