I drafted this blog post two weeks ago in an emotional response to the last post. But I didn't publish it. Although my anger has cooled, I believe every point is true.
Many many years ago I commented to a friend that I had never met a bunch of (highly) opinionated people as I had with horse folks. Boy, did I get that right.
I have been lambasted/villified on a Linked In horse forum for daring to utter my opinion on vaccines, I have been criticized on a FB donkey group for describing a feeding regime I use with my donks. Fellow donkey blogger, Kris, said, "Therein lies the
problem with FaceBook, too many opinions based on not enough data." And now I have been criticized on my own blog. Not really constructive criticism, just criticism. Balderdash.
I think I can synthesize the point of this blog as this:
* offer non-donkey owners a glimpse into the lives of my four to enjoy their day-to-day routines and exploits
* share info with fellow donkey owning readers
* provide an avenue for my writing enjoyment
Criticism doesn't fall into any of those categories. Suggestions, yes.
I think I need to rethink this whole blogging business.
