Back again

I haven't written this blog for a long time! I stopped writing it because somebody made some very nasty comments about it and the whole thing was so damaging and upsetting that I couldn't even face looking at the blog at all. But now I've thought it all through and I've realised that, if stop writing this blog, then I'm giving in to those people who have hurt me. So I'm starting again. And actually I never used to tell anyone in my normal life about this blog - but I'm going to now. I just feel that I do have a right to say what I want to say, in the way I want to say it, and that I should exercise that right. Of course, I know hardly anybody reads this anyway but that's not the point! Thanks to those who have posted comments in the past and might again in future.

I'm so sorry about the lousy comments. I feel a bit responsible in a way, because I think in this community we really at the very least should have each other's backs against those anonymous drive-by's. We can at the very least let you know that it's not you -- it's them with the problem. I'm sorry this hurt you as much as it did.

And I'm mighty glad you're back and looking forward to hearing what's up.

Write what you need to. Everyone's voice should be heard. And welcome back.

Honey said...

yes welcome home!
I find it invaluable sometimes, and recently a rant of mine got such a harsh response even from people I know i removed it.. I can't understand why we have to be edited like this, in conversation I've had far stronger opinions and not had half as much abuse back. All I can say is that some who tread these boards are just looking for someone to bite, but MOST of us are interested and delighted to see another post. Write for us, but mostly fro yourself, and ignore the others.. x

Alice,

I'm glad to see you writing again. You've been missed. XO.

Karin said...

Gosh, ditto to what everyone has said. And welcome back! So glad to see you. :-)

It's lovely to read all these kind comments and good to be back. I realise I missed this blog. Actually it wasn't someone in the blogging world who made horrible comments. It was someone in my 'real' life. I think that was why it was hard. Random loonies who might stalk the internet can be a bit hurtful - but not so bad. But people you've met face to face ..... Anyway, it is all finished with and I'm very grateful for the comments.

Alice
