This is Christmas speaking!
This will probably be my last Campaigns With Christmas post for a couple of weeks due to the upcoming Pawlympics (my world tour will also be postponed) but don't worry, my series will resume right after that!
Anyway, today's topic, a virtue every candy date should have, is transparency. What does it mean to be transparent? Of course I know what it means, but let me look up the exact definition on Google if you will.
having thoughts, feelings, or motives that are easily perceived.
There we go! For me personally being transparent means not keeping too many secrets or lying to readers and fans. It means being open about my thoughts and my opinions, even if those thoughts and opinions might not be what someone else might not want them to be.
Let's just pretend I become mayor of Blogville for a brief moment. How could being transparent help me lead Blogville fairly and strongly?
I would let my friends know what I think about their work or their own opinions. I could encourage them and help them to grow.
Hold it, hold it, hold it! Maybe I'm getting a bit off topic...it seems like I've been writing more about honesty than transparency. Transparency is different. It doesn't just mean being an honest person (or pup), it means just being yourself, yet people can see who you really are through your words and actions. Okay, let me try that again.
What does it mean to be a transparent mayor?
When election day arrives, some beloved members of Blogville will vote for me because they can see that I'm kind, brave, loyal, and encouraging.
I'm not trying to brag, but I've gotten such compliments before. Being transparent, I don't write "I'M KIND, BRAVE, LOYAL, AND ENCOURAGING, SO PLEASE VOTE FOR ME!" in every post, I just act like myself and people can see that my true being is a very kind, brave, loyal, and encouraging dog. See what I mean?
Let others admire for you the dog or cat or person you are, not someone you're pretending to be. And don't just be honest, be transparent. Let people know your thoughts and opinions by living your everyday life the way you do now.
