We will all make mistakes when blogging. Some might ask “what is a blogging mistake?” I have tons of examples!
I remember I wrote a post on racism. Now many people might steer away from such topics… wusses. I love to poke the bear and what better topic as a third party Asian in a universal black and white war? Oh come on… that was a little funny.
So I’m getting comments that day and someone makes a comment about me being yellow. I went off. Like a yellow rocket…
It wasn’t till later that I got her joke was referencing another, previous comment I had made with another blogger. Obviously I wasn’t getting her context, but what was more amusing later on was realizing I missed the humor on a topic that I had started and bred.
We’ll do that all the time as humans. We love to be the victim and I definitely was only seeing what I wanted to see. Here you might ask if I apologized to her later on.
I don’t do online apologies to people and I tend to think you’ll live and move on. I’ve done a few apology posts for fun, but in truth I feel social media is a fair playing field. If you can’t handle adult topics go over there… way over there.
Anyways, that was a lesson I learned. Never read sentences backwards.
They said to write inspiration.
So I wrote until writing hurt. I wrote my story and my soul until there was only skin left to give.
So I gave it.
I wrote until my bones held my pencil and the only thing keeping me going was the next thought that needed to be written.
So I gritted my teeth and kept writing.
I kept writing while they chatted, while they talked, while they whispered. I wrote through the pain and the tears surrounding me, around me, needing me. I wrote while the world cried and the innocent died. I wrote while the world disappeared before my eyes…
Because writing is the only thing I know how to do and at least I can do that.
So I do that.
