Do you swear, curse and let it all out on your blogs?
I get it. Life is just about the worst thing on some days and nothing you do seems right. Sometimes, those horrible days stretch into weeks and months too.
But, does it justify swearing on your blog?
I have lost count of the number of articles/ blog posts I’ve read in the last few months that use the F-word. Multiple times. Over and over again. Some of these are brilliantly written articles too and are very thought-provoking, where the subject matter is concerned.
What I cannot accept is the liberal sprinkling of curse words all through the piece. Personally, I don’t swear when I write and I stop reading if I find more than two uses of it in a single article.
I mean, the English language is so very powerful and has so many words in it. I repeat, SO many words. Yet, people are very comfortable swearing, to get their point across.
I understand that the blog is your personal space and it’s your prerogative to swear if you want to, but the dichotomy is this: your personal space is also an immensely public space. So maybe it’s time to re-think the extent of swearing too much.
How about you?
Do you use swear words liberally in your writing?
If yes, what’s your reason?
