Timothy Dalrymple offers some apt reflections on blogging and controversy. He outlines five things to think about before jumping into the latest viral fray:
1. Am I responding to a controversy or creating one?
2. Have I fully digested and assessed this issue?
3. Do I really have anything important to add to the conversation?
4. Assess your motives.
5. Remember the power of compassion.
Bloggers, this is worth your time to read the whole thing.
