Touchy Subjects
« on: May 16, 2011 @ 12:06 PM »
I've had a couple of Followers ask me to cover some subjects that I'm a little nervous about covering. Just recently someone asked me to post about Abortion..

I know how I feel about the subject, but I also know that this is one of "those" subjects that just really shouldn't be talked about.. Kind of like religion and Politics.
What does everyone think? Should I be brave, tackle it and just choose my words wisely, or should I say NO WAY??!!!

Any input would be appreciated!!

For me I wouldn't. I wouldn't want to blog about something that I was unsure about. I usually say, When in doubt, don't!

But you could always
a: go ahead and do it then remove the post if you feel you've made a mistake
b: your post could be a question where you leave it up to the commenter how heated it gets
c: post it as a reader submitted question that you are answering.. but make it brief

Thanks Karen!!! I ended up doing it a couple of weeks ago with a mix of two of your suggestions... I put it out there that I was answering a question and then asked readers how they felt.

It seemed to work out great.. thanks for your reply though!

I think it REALLY depends on your blog. On the wrong blog, it will alienate potential followers. On the right blog, taking a stand can get you more followers. People love sharing things they strongly agree with on Facebook.
