The danger I see is this: if we’re suckers for aspirational marketing at every turn it becomes easy to start treating those posts like comfort food. We feel as if a given post or blog is worth the time investment because it makes us feel like we’re becoming better at something, but if you never actually do anything as a result of what you’ve read, if you don’t make changes and act on advice, if you’re not inspired or meaningfully informed by it (meaningfully being information you later use), you’re doing the digital equivalent of eating a bucket of ice-cream.
Do not comment when drunk. Do not blog when drunk. Do not tweet when drunk. Keep in mind, you can be a little silly and tipsy, but if youâ€™re a snarky drunk or an angry drunk or a maudlin drunk or a stupid drunk â€” and letâ€™s face it, most of us can be described as at least one of these â€” get yourself a bottle of water and walk away.
