A friend took issue with something I wrote here, in my Suzansays blog.
At first, I was shocked. Yes, I was.
Then, I felt a little hurt…just a little.
THEN, I was excited and said, “You read my blog?”
“Yes!” said she.
“WOW! How awesome is that?!?” I replied.
She, however, did not see how her concern over my written words should evoke such joy in me.
I just laughed. Not at her, of course. I love her dearly and would never wish to hurt her.
But, you see…I’m a writer. Writers write.
I’m also a blogger. Bloggers write to be read.
She read my blog.
Yes, she did! That’s exciting to me.
I don’t write to be agreed with. I write to write. And, I blog to be read.
The post that she had issue with was a success simply because she took the time to read it.
That’s the whole point of writing a blog!
And, you know what’s equally exciting? She told some of her friends things I’d said.
Yes! She did!
And, yes!! they read my blog, too!
Take issue with what I write – that won’t bother me one bit. I’ll know you read it and that will make me happy beyond words. If you take issue with something I write, I’ve made you think and caused you to get off the fence and choose a side, make a decision, take a stand.
That’s a win / win the way I see it.
