I guess when you have a blog there will come a time when someone gets offended. I have seen this happen on other blogs and wondered why people would rant about something instead of just clicking on that little x up in the right hand corner. I don't mind the occasional difference of views, and I purposely stay away from religion and politics. I have my own beliefs and leave it at that..besides we have enough blogs that delve into that stuff.
But for me, it happened in a much different way. No one came on my blog to disagree, rant, or take offense with something I said. No, in this case I offended someone by putting their picture on my blog. It wasn't done in a bad way, and it wasn't done to offend or upset anyone....but it did, and for that I'm sorry.
Now for the record, the offended person had never seen my blog....or at least hadn't up to that point. Someone who reads my blog, someone who lurks on my blog mentioned seeing a picture of this person on my blog. Just so you know, this person probably didn't know it was a big deal, or maybe they did. I don't know. What I do know is that I would never, ever, intentionally put a picture on my blog that is hurtful, or embarrassing to anyone. If I poke fun, it's usually at myself.
So, I guess this is a wake up call for me, and an apology to anyone offended. The blog posts have been edited to remove the pictures. Amen
Tomorrow, I have some more of my usual goofy stuff....which is what I do best. Well, that is until the next The Batchelor starts, or Dancing With The Stars. Or better yet, Billy Mays comes out with a fantastic product for gift giving this Christmas....cuz I'll be all over it!
