Snarky Comments Wanted!
School is starting! School is starting! That means I'm gearing up to start back at blogging. One of the things I learned this summer is that a lot of people read my blog but don't want to post comments because they think that "good" people read my blog and they don't want to offend anyone.
So I'll let you know right now... NO "GOOD" PEOPLE READ MY BLOG. I don't write for "good" people. If you want a blog for "good" people try Beth Moore or Joyce Meyer. If you want a blog with an author that tries to expound upon reality from her own warped perspective, then please continue reading.
Don't get me wrong. I believe that we are created in God's image which is "very good" (actual Bible quote). But when I use the word "good" in quotation marks, I'm referring to the perfect Christian people that have everything all figured out and the answers are God, Jesus and church.
I understand the dilemma. There have been many times that I have an amazing tweet or fb status and end up hitting the backspace key because it was a bit too snarky or pushed the limit a bit too far. I fear the Christian Coalition might have Rupert Murdoch wire tap me if I go too far with my words. But should that stop me? No!
So for all of my fellow snarky readers out there, this week of blogs is for you. Please comment as much as you want. You can post anonymously. But be warned: there is a difference between snarky and mean. I will use the power of delete if necessary.
What subjects should we use to get the comments rolling? How about the top ten things I've learned this summer. Comment as you see fit.
1) There really is such a things as middle child syndrome.
2) When you post updates about your health, suddenly everyone becomes a doctor.
3) Hard work, education, and experience do pay off but aren't always appreciated by everyone.
4) To a conservative, I'm a flaming liberal. To a liberal, I'm an immovable conservative.
5) Jorts are out of style for men. (I also learned what jorts are)
6) You can read a lot about a person's personality by their smile or lack of it.
7) Several people thought I was insane to take my kids on vacation by myself this summer. I wonder how those same people treat single moms?
8) Most of the time if I have geographical questions, I needn't google an answer. I just ask my 11 year old.
9) Either the family of God got much bigger this summer or my eyes were opened to more things that unite us.
10) I guess that anything that one is passionate about will get snarky comments no matter what as I proved this summer with Harry Potter and chocolate.
So I'm waiting...
