Seth Godin Reflection


Seth Godin is quite the inspiration when it comes to the world of blogging. I was recently reading a couple off his posts and one of them caught my eye. His blog “The troll inside” I thought was really interesting. This particular post talked about something you might have heard about recently called internet trolls. First off, a troll is someone who will argue with you on the internet and try to make you look bad to give themselves pleasure while hiding behind a computer screen. This blog talks about why you should never argue or state your point to a “troll” no matter how firmly you believe in something because they will always find a way to make you mad.

So why is this blog important? Basically people argue with each other all the time on the internet. First off, you look dumb if you engage in confrontation with someone who gets off on making others upset. People will always try to fire low blows and you will want to fire back. DON’T DO IT! It only attacks your imagine and people will look at you in a bad way.

When you strongly believe in something, don’t just post it on the internet for these trolls to attack you, but go out into the real world a make a difference! Something on the internet might be inspirational, but there will always be those people who try to bring you down. So raise yourself up and don’t take any internet trolls to heart, because you are awesome and you can do anything you want! Just remember that trolls live under the bridge while you are walking over it!
