Thickness of skin required
As a blogger, I have been accused of many things: wrong, outdated, ignorant, and more recently, sexist and unfunny.
How outrageous! Unfunny?
Seriously though, I have always maintained that I blog for myself.
If someone else can draw any value from my musings, that’s a bonus.
Even if someone disagrees with me, that’s fine too, so long as they remember their manners.
I take heart from the vast majority of my readers who are supportive
and constructive. Besides, even popular bloggers attract patronising comments, rock throwers and trolls.
As Steve Farnsworth observes:
Is it worth being provocative, creative, or interesting and possibly offending one person in a 100 so you can speak with the other 99?
Yes, it is.
At least I haven’t been called a douchebag.
