Sometimes, when you ask someone close to you (like your husband or your wife), what they think about your website or blog, they tell you, “oh, that looks good sweetie, great job.”
Only, it really isn’t.
Your blog sucks. And they know it. (Or they don’t). But they’re too nice to tell you otherwise.
That’s the problem with being nice… It isn’t very helpful.
Instead, sometimes, the feedback you really need to hear is downright mean. But at least it’s helpful. After all, you can’t keep telling someone they’re doing good work when they really aren’t.
We all need good, honest feedback. Sure it might sound mean, and sometimes, that feedback might be wrong, but at least it’s helpful.
