I swear there are days when I feel like giving up blogging completely.
Here’s my advice to each and every blog reader out there: If you don’t like my blog . . STOP reading it!
I blog because I like to write and I like to “journal” my life. There’s no way I’d get up every day and read a blog that aggravated me or whose writer I didn’t like, or whose spending habits I didn’t like, or whose ideas I totally opposed. If you don’t like me or my blog, as my friend Elaine would say: GO AWAY!
Last week I was accused of bragging OFTEN about the “stuff” I have. Maybe all of you see it as that . . I do not! I blog about my life. I discuss my life. I discuss everything I do . . where I go . . what I eat and SOME of what I buy.
There was another one ranting about something I’d done last week . . I’ve already forgotten what it was.
Today, I get this:
I wonder how we think we are helping the already poor economy by canceling our subscriptions?
Can this person not read or does she just want to complain? This is what I said:
I’m certainly not saying don’t subscribe to these magazines. They need us now more than ever but . . I’d be careful about long term subscriptions.
Some days I wonder why I continue with my blog being public and this very comment has me re-thinking it all. I’ve challenged this commenter to show me where she got the idea that I was suggesting canceling our subscriptions and I doubt she responds. NEVER on my blog will I tell anyone what to do but I was simply stating that this company is having financial problems. If you want to buy a 2 or 5 or 50 year magazine subscription tomorrow . . go for it! If you are the type person who would rather know the financial solvency of a company you’re about to make a commit to doing business with, then read the article I linked and then make a decision.
