Thank you very much for taking the time to give me some feedback as I rarely get any.
I understand your argument and to a great many, referencing pop culture may be immature given the topic of self improvement. This is a fine opinion to have and you could argue it from many angles.
However, given my own demographic and the majority of my ‘audience’ if you could call it that, I believe it’s quite inconsequential that I include a reference to Game of Thrones. It’s a light hearted analogy to an otherwise serious topic, in my mind, no different from other analogies that I’m making.
Granted I’m not an experienced writer (if you could even call me that), and I may be wrong and it very well may devalue my writing.
But for now, I can’t see that as a serious (for lack of better word) hindrance to my development. Especially in the medium of online articles where my goals may be digestibility over academic or punctual prowess (as an example).
Nonetheless, I do agree that I could have easily left it out or replaced it with something more fitting by anothers standards, but at this point in my own development I don’t see a massive issue. That being said, I will keep this criticism in mind and look up resources discussing the issue.
Again, thank you for taking the time and thank you for your feedback as that’s invaluable to myself. I do encourage it!
