I can’t explain what goes through my head when I think of blogging. Mostly I battle back and forth about three things. One, do I have anything to say. Two, does anyone want to hear what I have to say? Three, will what I have to say offend anyone? Most often the answer to number three is what keeps me from writing anything.
Offending people isn’t really my fear though, it’s offending people on the internet that freaks me out. I rarely see any good come from people having arguments online. You may call them debates, but I truly believe that you can’t have a true debate without tone, body language, facial expression, and eye contact. Therefore, no discussion online is truly a debate.
All of this said, I have decided to blog again anyway. I will still ask these questions but from now on it will take a negative answer to TWO of my internal inquiries in order for me to not write about something. There you have it. I’m back at it, and this time I’m not holding back. Well, within reason. So if something you read offends you, comment away but don’t expect a rebuttal unless we can get together and chat over coffee sometime. Happy reading!
