First, my computer did the update thing and it took forever. Seriously. I got my office cleaned in the time it took. That's sayin' something.
Now, to today's blog topic:
It seems about every second month or so, some issue comes up on romance blogs that get a lot of folks' knickers in a twist.
I read them, form an opinion and think about the comments. But I don't usually add to the discussion. I don't generally comment.
For one thing, I have only so much mental energy and time.
Sometimes, to be honest, I really don't get what all the fuss is about, so I don't feel any urge to add my two cents if I agree or fan the flames if I don't.
And after twenty years in this business, there are some issues that just plain weary me because I've been hearing folks sound off about them for twenty years.
Also, and it's probably because I'm a middle child who did a lot of debating, I tend to see both sides of an issue and want consensus, not conflict. That means I'm all for a rational discussion, not so much with the hot-under-the-collar responses.
So if I'm not commenting on a subject, it doesn't mean I don't have an opinion. It doesn't mean I don't care passionately about some aspects of this business or my work.
It just means that sometimes, and for a variety of possible reasons, I choose not to air my opinion publically.
