The following post is a bit of a parody, so please don't take it too seriously. (HT to Bob Hyatt and Kevin Cawley.)
Given the nature of dialog within the comments of a weblog, it seems we should all develop a minimal philosophy for our web logs.
PHILOSOPHY OF THIS WEBLOG
1. Since it is my web log, I decide what to post. Duh.
I have never deleted posts because your comments are so interesting. I don't have the time or patience to get into protracted debates, but since that hasn't happened here, I don't worry about it. People probably wouldn't care if I deleted a post, but as editor (so to speak) I want you to remember that it is my prerogative. Remember, you are not paying for this forum, and neither am I.
2. I don't live for this web log. I am a full time wife, mother, teacher, and business owner in addition to this my daily writing assignment. I do it in my spare time or when I should be doing something more important. Please don't expect me to always be profound, intelligent, or interesting. I will do my best. However, there are genuine limitations in my ability to engage significant ideas. For the record, although I have read thousands of books, I have not authored a single one.
3. As always, I welcome your readership and participation.
