I will have my usual Friday post later today after I find something to write about… Of course usual isn’t the word I usually use around here. Maybe “unusual” is more fitting.
This week has been heart breaking and mind numbing for all of us who have opinions and value freedom and have half a brain in our heads.
Then I thought of my own work.
There have been times when I’ve had second thoughts about posting something because I didn’t want to offend someone. I didn’t want to offend anyone because they might leave a nasty comment or them might stop following Vampire Maman.
Well, that was stupid.
Most of the time when I’ve posted my offending posts I’ve received a flood of support. I am not alone. You are here with me. You are not alone because I’m here.
I’ve also had people attack me because I write this blog with a Vampire POV. Those who don’t follow this blog or read it don’t know what it is all about. They just attack. What a bunch of assholes. But it makes me mad – not just for me but for anyone who is attacked for writing their own thing.
If you don’t like Vampires, kids, bad poetry, typos (that I fix later), my opinions, Werewolves or romance – then shut the fuck up and get off my blog. Why do you even care? Why does it make you angry that I write something so odd and out there that hardly anyone reads it anyway? What makes you hate so much? You don’t even know me. You’ve never even taken the time to read my work.
Why do some people hate everyone who writes about Vampires? This isn’t Twilight folks. This is Vampire Maman.
Hey, even I don’t like the Twilight books but I’m not going to waste my time hating on it. If you like them then good for you. I’m fine with that. If you don’t like something then don’t read it.
But this isn’t about me. It is about everyone. It is about ALL OF US.
My advice for bloggers
- If you write it post it.
- If you feel it post it.
- If you draw it post it.
- If you love it post it.
- If you are afraid you’ll offend someone post it.
- If you think it is great then by all means post it.
- If you think it might be stupid or silly go ahead and post it.
Support other bloggers, artists, writers, and all who value the freedom of personal expression.
Do what you love.
Never be afraid.
