Blogging is fun. With Blogging, we can express ourselves. We can share our opinions.
Or can we? You can’t post, or share your opinions and views if you don’t have any! Do you? I am amazed about how so many bloggers won’t take any definite stand, on what *they* blog about. Usually, when someone replies to a post they made and asks any questions about it, even politely.
They “wimp out.” They won’t be definite about anything. But they must (you would think) have some opinion. After all, they are the one who brought up the topic. But there are far too many things like:
“Wellll, it’s complicated.” Reply: In other words, you didn’t think it through very much at all before you made your first or opening-post on what you wrote about. Or–
“That’s a good question”. Reply: in other words, you’ve been stopped in your tracks and don’t have a comeback. Or—
“It’s not that simple.” Reply: People always say that when they dont wanna defend their view (or can’t) or when they don’t wanna commit themself or take any definite stand. But again, it must matter to them. They, brought it up. Or—
“I think there needs to be a balance.” Reply: I’m not even sure that that “sounds good” anymore. Because people will say that, and then—Poof! Nothing more. Zero. Nada. They won’t even say what balance is to them, or where they would draw-the-line, and why there. Nope. End of discussion. All conversation on that topic stops.
And so—-for 2018, and on, try harder not to be a timid, non-committal, politically-correct, mousy Wimp! Take a stand!
It’s YOUR Topic. How do you feel about it? What do you think about it? Why? Be passionate. About whatever interests you. Have a foundation and basis for your view, whatever it is. And share that. You’ll be ten times more interesting than if you wimp-out and say, “welll, it all depends”……
