I have an admission. I was checking my stats recently and noticed that I had quite a few followers. I was thrilled! “Look honey!” I said to my wife excitedly. “I have almost 300 followers! I am scared. What should I write? How do I please all these people? I am sure to write something that they don’t like or agree with. How do I choose ‘safe’ topics?” “Shut up and just keep writing.” Was her response. We were lying in bed so she probably just wanted to be left alone.
My wife’s answer sobered me up and I thought of the reason my blog was called ‘My Vuze’. It wasn’t because I wanted to write what people were thinking or how they felt about something. It was my opinion, whether popular or unpopular. How I felt and what I thought. If I changed that to satisfy my readers, then I would be dishonest. I would be misrepresenting my blog.
From reading other WordPress blogs, I know that I am not alone. Some writers double think the content of their posts so as not to offend anyone or even to attract readers. If that’s your wish, sure go for it. Not me. Life is too short for that. Granted, I won’t be rude, crude or offensive in any way and there may be a topic or two that I may prefer to steer clear of. Some of my vuze might seem to clash with my spirituality but trust me, God is the ultimate base for my takes and I never claim to be more than human.
I promise never to doubt myself again. I would tell it like it is. Or like I think it is. If you don’t agree, feel free to tell me why you don’t. Maybe your information can sway my opinion.
