What I really think... and other New Year's resolutions.



Wouldn't that be a great post - or series of posts? "What I really think..."
I want to do it - you know, how I'm always critiquing Spirit Daily - I could do the same thing with other blogs. But my New Year's resolution is a restraining power and that means I am going to try and stop saying (writing) and posting inappropriate things. I'm going to try really hard to be nice to people and say good things, things people need to hear, things that will really help them. I noticed when another blogger linked to a post I did, he felt the need to add the following cautionary statement - "Be forewarned, Terry sometimes writes things that may offend some people." (I had no idea I did that. No wonder certain blogs I respect do not link to me, and those who once linked, no longer do so.)

Some British bloggers have referred to me as "off-the-wall" and I believe one even suggested I was eccentric. Now that is coming from British bloggers and you know how fond British people are of their eccentrics - like the Royals! (Also, keep in mind some of the British TV reality shows, such as, Absolutely Fabulous, Faulty Towers, Keeping Up Appearances, and others like them which document normal life in the UK. Yeah - really normal all right. And yet they think I'm eccentric and off-the-wall - I don't get it.)
So from now on, I'm going to try and be normal.

  4. I already think you're a nice guy! I think what someone people want you to be is politically correct. Screw that!

  7. Well, I have an opinion on this, but I'm not sure you want to hear it really, and it might be construed as me causing you some offence and that is not now nor has it ever been my intention to do so.

    For that reason, I'll say only that if you are content with what you blog then it doesn't really matter, does it?

    I know that no one agrees with me all the time, but it doesn't stop me being authentic.

  8. Deb - I agree with you.

    It is funny because I deliberately mentioned British bloggers to see if you or Jackie would react to my silliness. LOL!
