Most of us equestrian bloggers are semi-private. By that I mean, we don’t necessarily go I AM BLAH AND I RIDE WITH BLAH TRAINER IN BLAH CITY, but let’s be honest – it’s usually very easy to figure out where we are and where we ride. With this accountability, a certain amount of editing goes into what we put on the blog.
For example, I have a “no barn drama” policy rule on my blog, meaning that I simply will not write about things that happen within my blog for all the internet to read. Others make their own rules, but really – we all edit ourselves somewhat at the end of the day.
Which made me wonder… what would we say on our blogs if there was no editing? If it was truly 100% anonymous?
So logically, I created a survey.
Of course participation is 100% voluntary, but if you have something you want to get off your chest… let it out! Have you been dying to make a blanket statement, but didn’t want to piss off your blog followers? Maybe everyone is way more PC than me, but I thought this could be a fun blog social experiment.
That above link goes to a 100% anonymous Survey Monkey survey. I disabled IP tracking, so there’s no way I can try to use the magic of the internet to figure out who is saying what. If you want to play, post your unedited statement in the survey. I gave it a week to run (expires Saturday, September 13th at 12:00am) and after the cut-off I will publish all the comments here.
My request to y’all is, let’s keep this general and not point out any specific person. I’m all for unedited snarky thoughts, but I don’t want to facilitate any type of online bullying. Looking for insight and perhaps a little drama, but not at the expense of anyone’s feelings.
It may be fantastic, frustrating or nothing at all. I guess we’ll see!
