- Producer31/05/2016Is beBee Becoming a Habit Fractal?I enjoy reading and the exchange of ideas with interested readers. I used to spend good times reading posts on other platforms and posting on them as well. All of a sudden I found myself much more immersed in beBee and almost solely publishing...

All I can say is that in any community and social engagement, there is a minimum of expectation regarding exchange of opinions. At the same time, we don't have control over others' personalities and so it is important to remember that a negative behavior reflects on the person it's coming from, not at who it was directed.08/06/2016 #54 Ali Anani#52 The enter send the message directly and this is annoying as enter naturally means starting a new line. I started a new line because of you @Lisa Gallagher and @Anees Zaidi, @CityVP Manjit, @Sara Jacobovici and all my friends here. I love comments, but also I like explanations. If you tell me my writing is bad that is OK. But at least give me one reason so that I may improve. This is the real issue. I make a habit even of extracting the main points or highlighting the part that I liked most so that my feedback may be of benefit and not a comment that is like shooting darts in the darkness..08/06/2016 #52 Lisa GallagherI read this again @Ali Anani and I think the points you made are very valid. I for one, find it wonderful to read diverse posts- I learn from others in this way. So, in a sense I migrate away from my comfort zone.
There are some who will disagree with the next statement I make and that's ok. But, I also find there is a nice way to disagree without coming off like a 'know it all,' or as a rude person." I find there is no reason what so ever to become such a vocal person at the expense of hurting another's feelings. No one is paid to write on Social Media, so I don't agree that BECAUSE we write we are subject to criticism. Healthy discussions without pointing fingers, yes, harsh criticism, No.
If I become a paid pundit or writer that writes controversial topics, by all means criticize me. However, if I'm writing to share information, a personal story etc.. and I'm not pointing fingers at others in my writings I find it rude for anyone to tell me my thoughts are wrong. My thoughts are just that, mine.
I'm glad I read this again because most people write for the same reasons you, myself and many others do- to share and discuss on a human level. We expect nothing in return except common decency.01/06/2016 #47 Anees Zaidi@Ali Anani In a very short span of time visiting beBee to start my day has become a habit for me. I echo my words with you and @Sara Jacobovici. Migration from one place to another or from one platform to another becomes very easy and smooth if we are clear about our 'why' (the purpose). beBee has provided us the answer to our question.01/06/2016 #44 Lisa Gallagher@Sara Jacobovici, nicely articulated! "The why," so true, without pause we it's not possible to watch the flowers grow. My grandmother had a beautiful garden which reminds me of 'The secret garden,' I used to go into her garden and get lost in my thoughts/imagination. At one with nature!01/06/2016 #43 Lisa Gallagher#38 @Ali Anani, well I feel very honored!! Please, if I miss it- will you send me a link? I'm running a hive and I've noticed I missed a few articles contained within my hive too. Thanks for the congrats, we are SO excited. After losing mom, I keep reminding myself if I become sad that we are gaining a new life- that gives me happy chills. When we have grandchildren we can live vicariously through them and with them! The new little one will be loved by so many. He/she also will have loving grandparents on my daughter's husband's side of the family too. My daughter's mother in law is from Okinawa and she's so much fun. We get along like sisters and I've learned so much from her and about her culture.
