As a blogger who speaks her mind, I have often ruffled feathers. I guess that goes with the territory for most of us in the same boat. More than what is written the culprit seems to be how it is read. Content can be interpreted in different ways. The tone/color/mood applied to it depends mostly on the reader. Yet the writer is somehow held responsible for the reader’s subjectivity. For instance, when a reader sees aggression/arrogance wouldn’t it be appropriate to first pause and ask how much of it is reflection of their self and how much the writer’s intention?
Just a thought.
