This is post that I probably should not write, but the matter is still troubling me after a week or so.
A couple of bloggers have removed me from their blog lists. That is fine. One was quite expected. Blogville is not the real world.
What troubles me is that one blogger removed me from her list after making a critical comment about a post I made. She is a very busy blogger and writes in a very amusing manner and I quite like her forthrightness. Her blog list is long and while she has commented on my blog many times, it became clear to me that either she had not really gotten a handle on me at all, or that she really hasn't read my blog properly, or probably both. Perhaps she quickly visits, skims over a post and makes a quick comment.
While I can see that the offending post could be offensive to an immature person who had never read my blog, I can't understand why this person would find it offensive if she had read my blog over time properly.
I confess it was a late night post and I usually save them for review the next day before publishing. This time I didn't, but I reread it the next day and I let it stand. It did actually say something, rather a lot really, and not necessarily the obvious, and it is on the record. A moment of history was captured and the comments just added to it.
Ah, I have just realised that the matter above is not what has been troubling me, it was whether to write about it. I have done so and I am now cleansed.
I can only urge anyone thinking of adding me to their blog roll , to read me for a while before adding me or do some backreading.
