This is my premier blog, the first one I have ever attempted. I'm late to the game because honestly, blogging does not come naturally to me, which is odd because I have opinions about everything. But I've been told that blogs meant to promote a book or an author should never contain that author's real opinions. They should be whitewashed and sugar-coated, sanitized for public consumption – and that is the main reason I have always avoided blog writing.
If I have to write about the weather or my family or what I made for dinner, then forget it. I'll be bored writing it, so I can only imagine that people will be bored reading it.Yet, if I write what I really think about politics, religion, ethics or anything else that I like to discuss, then I risk alienating people in a way that only body odour was formerly able to accomplish.
That's why I'm hesitating even now, labouring over the keys and holding back my thoughts as though they were a sneeze, set to explode all over my monitor, leaving a sticky mess behind.To blog the truth, or to blog pleasantries, that's the question. What think you?
