Someone who has apparently followed my blog for years was offended by my opinions about the Duck Dynasty thing. This guy wrote a very kind email message to tell me he could no longer follow my blog because of what I had to say about a television show.
I don't care.
I didn't start this blog for him. If I were looking for a lot of readers, I would have gone in an entirely different direction long ago. It amazes me that a television show is that important to someone.
Honestly, I don't care if anyone but my husband reads this stuff. I blog mostly for myself. I have stated here, many times, that the reason I started a blog was so I could express my opinions in a spot on the Internet that was mine alone. Those who don't like what I have to say don't have to read it. I got tired of being censured on message boards for saying things that, honestly, weren't even that controversial.
I do appreciate the supportive comments, here and on Facebook; and the friendly emails from those who for some reason aren't able to comment here.
If a bunch of millionaires want to grow beards and act stupid, that's their business. But I am allowed free speech, just as much as they are. Folks, I am always willing to admit I could be wrong on any subject, but I think I have the right to express my opinion.
And I want to thank my checkered group of friends who occasionally chasten me, often disagree with me, and yet listen to what I have to say. Since they listen to me, I listen to them. Because, you know, I could be wrong.
