I think it depends on the "criticism". If it is helpful and suggests ways for me to improve and it's done in the proper manner I am grateful for it. However, it if is just tearing someone down for the sake of doing it or doesn't really leave me feeling I've learned something then I tend to ignore it. I think sometimes there is a fine line between genuine criticism and just being judgmental or unnecessarily harsh.
If someone just says "You're wrong" or "That's nonsense" without quantifying their opinion then it says more about them than you. If they've given you nothing to work on to improve what you've done then their comment is as useful as a chocolate teapot. On the other hand, if someone explains where they think I can improve, then I wholeheartedly welcome their opinion.
Negative criticism, whether it is in the form of bad comments or negative feedback on your website, blog or any other post, is easy to give. Readers can easily post their rants in a comment box and click a button. That's all it takes to insult a writer's talent and hard work that has gone in to creating a post. As an online writer, if you have been subject to such feedback, you can either sulk and feel unworthy of writing ever again, or learn how to deal with negative criticism. read more
