Even though this is my blog, I don’t always see it as my place to share my point of view, believe it or not. I’d honestly rather that you take what I say with many grains of salt (unless I’m raving about a book, in which case you should get your ass out to the stores and buy it *ggg* even if you are JM Carr).
In a sense, there’s the Blog-Me and there’s Me-Minus-Blog-Me. Me-Minus-Blog-Me doesn’t really get the let it all hang out mentality of Blog-Me.
Once in awhile, it’s not that I have Nopinion, but rather that I’ve an Opinion, and decided to shut up about it. It’s a good thing that like PBW, I like to write, and draft and redraft–by the time this goes up, it will have been through half a dozen rewrites, and my Romancing The Blog posts often have more. Otherwise… *shakes head* I’ve a temper, and occasionally it runs away from me. So yeah, I do sometimes censor myself.
The more important, I think, reason is simply that I often have Nopinion (unless it’s about books, because when it comes to books, I’m always right *ggg* unless you’re JM Carr).
Me, I think Ms Black is brave to talk about it so openly, but I also see that there is a reason why bravery is often a synonym for stupidity–FYI, I do admire Ms Black for what she has achieved. Perhaps the right word is foolishness, not stupidity.
But I’ve Nopinion about what Ms Black actually said. In some ways, I’m more curious about what other people think of what she said than anything else.
That’s mostly why I started The Stalker and Wednesday Web Wanderer, because it’s not much of a blog post if I just post a something with one link and that’s it.
I’ll also take the opportunity to say this: I’d love it if you guys came back more often to tell me what you think of the blogs/articles etc I’ve linked to.
And no, I’m not planning to change my blog title to Nopinionista. ;) But the original one is quite a good read, and this is one of my favorite Opinionista posts.
PS I don’t have anything against JM. She’s very nice, and hopefully she’ll forgive me for poking fun at her. To understand why I’ve mentioned her twice, please check out the comments in this post.
