Blogging About Controversial Topics - YAY or NAY?
Do you pick controversial topics to discuss via blog posts? I lean more toward non-controversy myself. You seldom see posts about politics or religion at my blogs unless it's history . But there is certainly a value-add to mentioning a controversial topic; for example, genital mutilation . People will either ignore your remarks OR the post could get people involved in lively discussion, debate, dispute and shouting a whole bunch of words and either introducing their comments or concluding their statements with emphasis using words that begin with "D" or %)O!X$^(*@.
Like most people, I am very passionate about many things. But perhaps unlike most people, don't get too excited about stuff because my theory is “it probably already happened”. Ever read the Bible ? Nine times out of ten, if there is an event that is happening today, a very similar event has very likely happened thousands of years ago. There aren't really that many plots or motives for what goes on in our world that really causes "problems". There's somebody on a mission of world domination and then there's ... uuhhh ... somebody who wants to rule the world ... then there's ... ummm ... somebody who thinks God died and left them in charge. Pretty much that's it!
Sometimes talking it about helps though. You never know. Folks might be able to reason together and thrash things out!
