Tolerance

Occasionally some of my old posts get comments on them. Most times these comments are spam, but otherwise they’re from someone who actually is trying to be engaging.

The other morning I saw I had 3 comments from one person on a snarky post I did on why I’m too old to go clubbing anymore.

Now, I definitely thought long and about whether or not I wanted to even waste my time and post about this.

Then, I realized I needed to.

It is NEVER okay to be intolerant of others. While my original post was whiny about being too old to be in a club, I hope it was not construed as me objectifying club-goers or my LGBT brothers and sisters. There are plenty of people who are toolbags whose sexuality has nothing to do with their clubbing behaviors.

When you comment on a blog of someone you do not know, do not judge them. Do not make assumptions based off of misconceptions and stereotypes. Do not justify your assumptions by apologizing and saying you thought someone was another assumption or stereotype.

Intolerance is the root of so many misunderstandings in the world. Do not be intolerant of others– open your minds to possibilities.

For the love of so much, please do not bring your intolerance to my blog. I may be a snarky piece of work, but I am a snarky piece of work who will gladly listen to others before making judgements. Leave your intolerance at the door, and know that this blog is welcoming to people of all races, religions, socio economic classes, backgrounds, and sexual orientations. Whether you’re a “straight girl” or a “toolbag lesbian,” I welcome you with open arms, as long as you have an open mind.

 

I’m in a blog writing coma.

For the first time in YEARS, my family has Thanksgiving leftovers. Although we went to my Aunt’s, we made a 2nd Thanksgiving dinner at our house yesterday for my Dad’s birthday.

This meant I could make a Thanksgiving Dagwood sandwich for lunch today. Yum.

I’m in such a turkey coma right now.

Much like a turkey coma, I’m also in a blogging coma.

I’ve been writing blog posts every day since October 1st. I’m tired. I can barely move. I want to nap. I want to go back for more, but I just don’t think I can.

So, I’m taking a step back from blogging. I’m still going to blog, but not daily. I need to take a break in order to continue to love blogging. Otherwise, it will turn into an obligation rather than fun.

Happy end of November, folks. Go enjoy your turkey coma.

The key to self-discovery

In honor of BlogHer13 being less than a month away, I will be trying to post regularly about my growth as a blogger in the past year.

I went to BlogHer12 as a new, inexperienced blogger. I didn’t know much about blogging… Or much about myself. The experiences I had, and the people I met through blogging have given me the courage and strength to embark on a journey of self-discovery and growth through my writing. While I’ve had my ups and downs over the past year, one thing has remained the same: my blog has been my outlet.

 

I guess you could almost say BlogHer and blogging has been a key part of my journey this past year.
