I have operated a blog for quite awhile. I enjoy operating my blog.
I enjoy having "discussions" with other people who often do not share my views. I occasionally change my views and I find the opinions of other people to often be quite interesting. My views on "Free Trade" and "Fair Trade" have changed in the last couple of years. I am now much more in favor of "Fair Trade" then I used to be. My views on abortion have also changed; most likely due to having two children. I am far more "Pro-Life" then I used to be... In one case I moved to the "left" and in the other case I moved to the "right."
I have a lot of people who read my blog and I have a great group of people who leave comments.
I have even made a couple of friends in Fort Wayne by blogging.
I think there have been quite a few changes in the local "blogosphere."
When the local "Blogosphere" was in its infant stages I felt that most bloggers were cordial and relatively polite.
I have noticed that many local blogs seem to be getting more and more hostile to each other. There are a growing number of personal attacks and insults being "posted" all over the place.
I plan on ensuring that I keep my blog as clean as possible. I ask that everyone who visits this blog attempts to be respectful of others.
I think that America (And Fort Wayne) need to have a lot of discourse about various topics. Attacking each other and making petty comments solves nothing.
