I’m having a bloggy midlife crisis, or my blog is having a crisis… or I don’t know what, really.
I tend to be passive agressive at times. I shy away from confrontation, it takes a lot to get me cranky, really cranky, and while I am online I try and be less controversial and more happy and carefree.
My problem? There have been things happening online, and around the country that I really want to comment on, but I tend to not want to offend anyone, not stick my neck out, not get any attention outside of my blog, so I stay quiet, and just plod along on doing what I do.
I never really wanted to write on controversial or the ‘hot’ topics as there is already so much of that out there.
I’m not interested in any sort of attention, because most of my arguments are simply what I feel, how I see things, not anything based on facts. So you could quite easily rip my opinion to shreds, and that’s where my problem lies. I don’t like the idea of people saying what I think is shit, purely because I have no fact to back it up with. That’s personal.
Is that a problem? Sometimes I think so.
I’m thinking of changing my blog, adding more of this, but still keeping the other lightweight stuff.
Part of this ranting lies with the whole feminist and anti-feminist issues. At the very core of it, the base meaning of the word, yes I am a feminist. You will be hard pressed to find me vocalising it, as I feel the majority of them are doing their cause a great disservice by being so uptight about every. little. thing. There’s got to be a limit to how far you go.
And as the mother of boys, I am erring towards being a manist (is that even a word?). Boys are young men are getting such a bad rap of it that they will soon be as frightened as what girls appear to be. they can’t seem to be doing anything right. If I had a daughter would I be any different, I don’t know.. but does it matter really.
So what I want to know is, would you mind if I got on my soap box every now and then and went off. I’m only asking because it is, will be, quite different to what I have been and usually do here.
