I’ve had a bunch of people ask me recently why I don’t blog about politics, given that I have strong opinions on the subject. (Like there’s anything I don’t have strong opinions on. Why is no one wondering why I don’t blog about interior decorating? For the record: wall-to-wall carpet is an abomination.)
There are lots of reasons I don’t rant politics here, but the main one is I hate flamewars. Don’t get me wrong I quite enjoy following them on other people’s blogs. But I have no interest in having them here. The minute you start talking about current politics, people will come and people will yell. And then I’ll have to waste my time deleting everyone. That’s right the blog overlord will censor discourse on this blog.
I really enjoy the comments here. I’ve been blogging for more than a year and the vast majority of the conversations have been civil and fun. I want things to stay that way. Thus I won’t be blogging about party political stuff.
But feel free to share all your interior decorating hates. Is there anything worse than carpet on the walls? Actually, I think I just hate carpet . . .
