We start everything with good intentions. We go to the gym every other day for a month, then by month three we are going only when we feel guilty about not going. We give up bad eating for a month until we lose that 5 pounds and then it's back to the Snickkerdoodles and Lattes.
It's the same with a blog. You go into it and say, I will write every day or every other day. Something deep and meaningful. But alas, it is not that easy... especially when you see so much crap out there, and you try to avoid being part of that big old river of crap. That is why I felt I needed to write something today. The problem being, I don't really have anything to touch upon. I don't want to get involved in writing about politics, because it does not matter what side you are on, whatever you express is going to draw negative energy from one side or another. You can't win. So I chose to keep that energy out of my life.
I don't talk religion, because that melting pot is dangerous ground as well. You get labeled as racist, which makes no sense at all, because religion is not race.
You can't talk about crime because again, even if the facts point to a certain race or gender, you are racist.
You can't talk about lifestyle (or life choice / gender identity) because then you are labeled "something or other phobic."
Personally I don't care if you agree with anything I ever say or not. You are entitled to your thoughts as I should be to mine. But, If one expresses an opinion that is different from yours, blasting a blogger with hate comments serves no purpose. Instead of spewing hate in one line comments, why not start a blog of your own and spell out your concerns. Ahhh, the problem there is you don't want to get the hate comments either. It's a vicious circle which is why I don't write too much anymore.
Granted, I don't get a lot of hate comments, because I try to keep my blog's topics along the lines of interesting stuff rather than op-eds.
I draw my observations on reading other people's blogs and seeing some of the comments. It's terrible and disrespectful. I am sure if some of these people met these bloggers face to face that they would not dare to actually say some of the things they say in the anonymous world of the internet.
So, I suppose I will limit this blog to Music industry advise, and the occasional life experience. (Oh, and since I sell Kia, I will answer any questions you have about these wonderful vehicles).
A revamp is in order, and I am going to take a little time to figure this out.
In the meantime. Be nice.
Have a great day!
