Let live

I read negative comments about this blog last week. First time that has happened for me.

It should have cut me to the quick. It should have ripped my heart to shreds. But I didn't feel any such pain. My initial instinct was to ask why. Then I thought better of it.

I began blogging to share my experiences. I didn't want others who may be in similar situations to feel alone. Being in a public forum, people who read this blog are going to form opinions. They have a right to do so. I don't need to know why. Everyone has their own experiences to draw from. Not everyone, thank goodness, will go through life as I am right now.

I've always said, "Live and let live." Now I know that I actually mean it.

Sometimes people don't know how to be nice.

It's no reflection on you!

Dear Eva

The same thing happen to me before. A PDH emailed me and she told I should blog, casue my english is bad, spelling is bad... her list was long. Then I think to myself I am the Imperfect Blogger, I am in action! And no one can stop me! And I just kept blogging :-)

Just keep moving forward with your narrative, Eva. Readers sometimes lash out for the sake of it, and not because of something the blogger wrote.

You have chosen a really self-revealing outlet. When I first put the pieces together, I thought, "wow, what a great topic." But really, it's more than an interesting niche genre, it's about your life. Brave. kat

I started this blog as a niche topic, but it kinda blossomed into my personal online journal. More like exploded, actually. I got a hugely warm response that I wasn't expecting.

What did they say? Was it about the blog's design or about something you wrote?
