I have a mini rant to air here today. I am tired of considering and reconsidering the subjects I blog about, the words I use and the titles I choose. For months, I’ve been avoiding words, phrases and subjects that might encourage unwanted political commentary.
This isn’t me being paranoid, well, no more than usual, after all, they do say:
“Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean people aren’t really out to get you.”
My reasons for choosing my words carefully are based on comments I have received (and deleted) on previous posts.
If you’ve followed this blog in the past, you know that I’m not here to push an agenda. No politics, no religion, no convoluted marriage of the two. I also steer around most social issues, at least the “popular” ones. My goal is to entertain. It’s not that I don’t care about those other subjects, it’s just that I have no standing from which to pontificate.
You know who has less standing than I do? Some random reader that leaves a comment trying to divert my platform to their cause du jour.
End of rant.
