I always feel rather sad when I log onto my blog and see that I have lost a follower. Usually it is after I have posted a controversial post, such as the one I posted yesterday. It is my belief that folks can discuss issues -- politics, religion, current events, and more, without getting personal. It's not about the individual, it's about the issue. I sometimes read the blogs on CNN, and I am gobsmacked at the names people call each other, simply because they happen to disagree with each other regarding any particular subject.
On my boring-little-blog, I like to mix things up occasionally and discuss current issues that interest me. I do try, however, to be as courteous and inoffensive as possible, while stating my views. If folks disagree with me, I welcome it. What a boring world this would be if we all agreed with each other. I have often thought that, if I lived in another age, I would own a great salon -- no, not a hair salon, but a place where folks could attend soirées, and we would discuss all sorts of wonderful topics -- literature, art, science, religion, politics... more... These are the things that make the world go around, don't you think?
I always welcome your comments, and I often read them more than once. I try to respond, and I always visit and read your blogs, but unfortunately our computers at work are blocked from commenting on blogs, so my time is sometimes limited. But, one thing I have found is that there are some very interesting, talented, intelligent people out there. Yes, you...!
Have a wonderful Wednesday, everyone.
