I’m conflicted. Originally, I had a topic in mind that I wanted to blog about. However, it is not motivational. I actually wanted to blog about, “Can Men and Women be just friends?” However, I’m very hesitant because any time I share my own opinions on topics such as this (or any generalization for that matter), I usually offend some of my readers.
I know it is my own blog, and I should be able to blog whatever I want; but one of my friends recently said this to me:
“I don’t understand why you would blog about something that would separate people. If it doesn’t bring value to others, why are you writing it?”
I thought deeply about what she said, and I do agree. However, at the same time, I also want to blog about whatever I want. It’s very conflicting because currently I have a lot more readers than before (due to my translations).
In the past, it would be surprising for me to hit even over fifty views per post. But now, since I am getting hundreds of views daily, I feel more pressured to put content that is more appropriate and useful.
Although I am still very into the motivational thing, there are times when I feel like I just keep repeating myself in a different way. Thus, there are times I want to switch it around and blog about my personal views (For example: My view on the Paris shooting, my view on gay marriage, and so on).
Sometimes, it can be very difficult because while I want to share my own opinion, I do not want to upset anyone.
It’s kind of like the saying, “With greater power, comes greater responsibilities.”
I have to take responsibilities for what I write.
