I want to ask all of you something. When someone reads one of your posts, do you expect them to agree with you? I’m not talking about a personal story but more the ones where your asking something. Do you want people to tell you the truth as they see it or would you rather they just nod, agree and say nice things? Would you rather that they say nothing? I’m not talking about anyone in particular. I’m asking all of you that come here to read and the people who know I come to your blog.
I never really knew what to expect when I started all of this and had only been to a commercial blog where you said what was on your mind. You’d hear it all believe me. Some people can get downright ugly on some subjects and I found women are a lot meaner to each other than men are. That’s if people are who they say they are. But people were brutally honest on those kind so I’m not sure if people feel the same on “these” blogs.
But when I started this I mainly just wanted to talk, to discuss. Not fight but disagree for sure. Because if we all agreed on everything, I think it would be kind of boring and dull. I feel you can disagree without name calling and fighting. But I’m never really sure how other people feel and why they blog and what they’d like to get out of it. I feel we all do it for different reasons. For me, I wanted to converse. We’ve had a lot of us that don’t agree with each other and other than a smoking post a piercing post and a few odd others, nobody has really fought over anything. Disagree yes, fight, no.
Just yesterday on my stroll through my blogroll, I found that I didn’t understand what one person was trying to say so I didn’t really leave a long comment and another one, I had another opinion but didn’t leave one there either. I didn’t know “how far to go” or “what to say” because it wasn’t that I disagreed, I just had a different point of view and I wasn’t sure how these people would feel. I know for me, I’d rather hear it and know. I really don’t like it when people don’t comment. Someone once told me “if you don’t want to know the answer, don’t ask the question” and I feel that’s very true. I also think sometimes the writer may not be looking at it in any other way. I’ve seen people offer a solution that the writer was grateful for. Sometimes when we’re having a problem, we may not see all the viable options.
But that just may be me and I’m saying on this blog, I really hope you all tell it like it is. How do you want your blog? If you come here often, I’d like to know how you want your blog. What your expectations are. If you want a Happily Ever After or if you want the truth.
