If You Don't Have anything Good To Say
Mom always told me that if you don’t have anything good to say about a person, don’t say anything. But that’s hard to do when you are blogging. I am very opinionated and when I see things that bothered me or that causes harm to someone else, I have to speak out. But recently I read something in Essence from some of the well known African American actresses who seem to be decent people. I mean I haven’t heard much negative stuff or horrible gossip on the ones who spoke out in the Essence article. They stated that bloggers spread lies about them. They talked about how bloggers should be more responsible and check information before posting it.
In the past I have tried to do this and I will continue to do. But reading that article made me think about what is it I want to spread and why is it necessary. Thus, lately I feel like I don’t have much to say. Those of you who read my blog know that I love teenagers, my family, and that I love to write. But that can become boring too if that’s all I focus on. Trying to be creative and interesting is hard when your mind is so busy thinking and doing things to keep your head over water.
So this leads me back to blogging. I am opinionated and if I can’t blog about it, I’ll just become silent. But I want to blog, so honestly I have to be me. Basically, I’m back to share my opinions. I’ll continue to try to research information if need be. But heck this is my blog and though I want to write what I want, I’ll try to remain accurate as I can be when discussing folks….
