Daily Prompt: Blogger of Repute

Do you have a reputation? What is it, and where did it come from? Is it accurate? What do you think about it?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us YOU.

 I remain fairly unaware of my reputation regarding most areas of what I do. However, is that a bad thing? Maybe people would get on with their lives slightly more efficiently if they weren’t worrying about reputations. Sometimes I think people can be very harsh on people purely because of their reputation. I want to make clear to you that by making a very final decision about every person based on their reputation leaves no room for change, and most certainly does not encourage change.

Maybe that’s why I don’t particularly want to know what people think of me. I believe that forgiveness is the key to a better life experience, because in the end it relieves you of unnecessary amounts of worry and stress. Reputations aren’t bad on their own – people get by on a reputation sometimes – however I don’t like the idea that you make up your mind based completely on a reputation either.

Everyone has different reputations decided by different groups of people. For instance, my family know that I am extremely over-analytical, and my friends know that I worry a lot needlessly. When it comes to stuff like this, are reputations valuable? Will I be over-analytical all the time? In the end a reputation is a brand, and that’s why they cannot be depended on – people are not machines. Reputations are also based on the emotional response of a person. However that doesn’t mean reputations aren’t useful – if you’re in direct dealings with someone, often a reputation can give you some kind of idea of what to expect, perhaps even helping you protect yourself – giving yourself a little wall, a little distance between you and the other person, just in case.

However I don’t think I can publish this post without writing something about myself. After all, I have to show you me.

So, what about my own reputations? Well regarding blogging, I can only guess at what people think of me. I don’t think I even have a blogging reputation. If I do, please tell me – it would be interesting now that I’ve been writing on the blog for about a month!

Music-wise, I’ve generally got a positive reputation, and I’m known for my more spiritual connection with music, even though I’m not religious in the slightest. I’ve already written on this blog about how I use music as a means of communication, and that’s why I enjoy playing chamber music with friends, because I can ‘tell’ them things I wouldn’t dare speak just by playing music. Writing-wise, I’m known for being extremely over-the-top, and for having too many ideas at once. I’m known for being dedicated to what I write when I want to be. Apart from these things I genuinely have no idea about my reputation. But maybe that’s part of my reputation – the ignorance. Yup, that’s me.

  1. Reputation is based on a emotional responds of a person – very true, so it’s clouded by opinion of the individual giving it. Also why I don’t really care about the concept of reputation – nice read, have a great day!

  2. I enjoyed the post and agree with your words. “Everyone has different reputations decided by different groups of people,” is so true. And I appreciate learning more about how your music and art are important to you, and part of how you share yourself. I like this line also: “Maybe people would get on with their lives slightly more efficiently if they weren’t worrying about reputations.” So your spraffing today revealed some gems for us to ponder! Thanks!
