I have always had a small readership, but because of a link posted on Cjanes blog to my blog, I got a lot of traffic the other day from people I didn't know.
People said some really nasty things to me. Really nasty. I will admit that it hurt. I was judged very harshly from people who don't know me or anything about me. Because of my political views and my "politically incorrect" sense of humor, they assumed the worst and sure let me know it.
I am a pretty fun loving, nice person. I strive everyday to be the best wife and mother; my family is everything. I am kind to all my neighbors, no matter their color. I am active in my community and my church. I volunteer in the schools. When I read others blogs, I encounter numerous things that I don't agree with. Sometimes I even think they are lying. Then I simply click the mouse and off I go, onto a new blog or website. It is not my place to play policeman of the blog world and make sure everyone is being politically correct or posting only things that I agree with.
That's the beauty of the blog. It's my voice. Mine. I was told - "Shame on me" and because of my connection to the Nie Nie blog, I should be more careful with what I say. I love my cousin Christian and his wife Stephanie. But I was blogging long before their accident, and hope to be blogging long after. I don't owe anything to anyone in the blogging community. This is my place to share a part of me. And like it or not - this is me in all my imperfect glory.
To leave nasty comments is silly. It's not anyones job to put me in my place. The blog is out there for you to read - agree or not - and if you like what you see, come back again. Obviously, if you don't, then don't.
Here's the bottom line. This is my place to post new recipes that are yummy, to post little tidbits about my family life and vacations, to post pictures of my latest cookie and cake creations, and yes, to even post my opinions. It could be said that it is your right to leave a comment with yours, and I guess that is so. But it will always be my right to delete them when they are unkind or nasty.
I am a lover not a fighter and don't enjoy the controversy or arguing. Come. Read. Enjoy. If not, no hard feelings.
