If you had to choose between being able to write a blog (but not read others’) and being able to read others’ blogs (but not write your own), which would you pick? Why?
I hate these choices because they are just silly ultimatums. Rarely in life are there ever true zero sum situations; it is often only limits that we impose on ourselves for a variety of reasons.
That being said if I am going to play the game; then I have to state that I wouldn’t be able to read other blogs because as I have written many times in the past, it is imperative for my mental and emotional health to write each and every day. I would have to sacrifice my readings and it would hurt me a lot because I look forward to reading what my friends have to say about a whole variety of subjects. I have developed some very important friendships and it would be a cruel choice to have to make and so that is why I dislike these silly hypothetical questions; it’s a false premiss designed for dramatic purposes and that is it.
On a happier note; I posted two pretty pictures to brighten the post. A beautiful apricot hibiscus to warm the insides while the outside is blanketed under a thick cover of white snow.
