In addition, I also enjoy the 'controversial' topics: religion and politics seem to summarize them well. I have often sat down to write a post on Faith; on Gay Marriage; on Politics; on the Environment; on Gas Prices, etc., etc., etc. I've never finished one of these posts because of a few fears of mine. Fear of: negativity in comments; not being accepted by those who visit my blog (my desire for approval is a whole month of blog posts, so we'll just leave it at that for now); others thinking I'm trying to change their minds or do anything more than just sharing my opinion.
I mostly feel like by posting on these topics, I'd be opening a huge 'can of worms'. Do I want to do this? Or do I want to keep things light and airy 'round here? Well, I think I'm gonna try it out. If I were writing in a journal that no one else saw, my thoughts on these topics would be included, so why not include them here. The conversations The Man and I have on these topics would be included, so why not include them here.
So that said, I'm working on a first post in a 'Can of Worms' series. This series probably won't have any scheduled rhyme or reason to it because it's hard to schedule when something will strike a chord that will need to be filed as such. What strikes a chord with you? What would you want to express your opinions on? What are you passionate about?
I love love love love reading comments (come on, admit it, you do to :)!), but I would like to respectfully ask you to play nice. Feel free to disagree, in fact please do, but do it RESPECTFULLY. My posts are my opinions and your comments are yours. Consider first how you would want to be responded to... Anonymous comments are ok, so long as you 'play nice.' I do reserve the right to delete unnecessarily nasty comments.
