When i wrote the post about abortion i knew it was a sensitive subject and controversial but i did not write it for the controversy, its something that i feel strongly about, have experience with and its been on my mind a fair bit because of my niece.
I wont apologise for what i wrote, i stand by every word, when i write a post i write what im feeling or what may be relevant to whats going on in my head at that time, i may get inspiration from reading other blogs and occassionally i may dig out unpublished posts (i have too many just sitting there). I guess what im saying is as much as i appreciate the comments and i do very much so, and i enjoy opinions and interacting but i dont write for popularity, i dont dwell on how many followers i have, what my stats are however i do care about offending or/and upsetting people unintentionally.
The abortion post caused me to do something i have said i never would, i have started moderating comments before they are posted..well i was told to....but i had no argument there and it turns out it was for the best. This isnt about censoring a persons opinions because i disagree with them, i actually enjoy healthy debate but on this occassion i allowed my emotions over what is a sensitive subject to get the better of me and it started to get nasty, i take some of the responsibility for letting it head that way.
Anyway normal service is resumed....well my kind of normal.
