OK, so my partners and I had a meeting about whether or not we should allow anyone to anonymously rip our content apart and mock me and what I am trying to do with this blog. Originally, I said NO WAY. I mean, come on, why subject myself to haters who cannot spell, obviously live locally, and have some axe to grind over something trivial or inane.
BUT, the other partners said this: “We can learn from the responses we receive (good/bad), or choose to chalk it up as “you can’t please ’m all.” I want to be a life-long learner and I want to not hide behind my fears of being ridiculed, so I have lifted the ban on anonymous blog-haters who want to hack at me.
I actually think it is a good thing, because it challenges me to be tough, be true to who I am, and to allow others to be who they are. Maybe, just maybe, I will inspire someone to either stop picking on others, or understand that no matter who you are, you will never be able to please everyone.
