I want to offer my followers a heartfelt and sincere apology for the article I recently posted on this blog. One of my followers brought to my attention, through a comment, that the post had a very distasteful and off color comment in it that I missed.
There is, of course, no excuse for the distasteful comment to have gotten by me, however, in my defense. As I usually do, I was attempting to help out a fellow writer by giving them a wider audience and also helping my followers to sample a wider variety of content. So I shared one of their posts off their blog.
I was rushing and it completely slipped by me. To make matters worse, I quickly deleted the post from my blog, as a result, I also deleted the comment and the reader’s name so I can’t personally offer them my apology. But I am extremely grateful to them for bringing it to my attention. No, you’re correct, it isn’t the type of content I want on my site.
I try extremely hard to not post anything that is controversial or political to this blog, even during these “trying times”. It isn’t always easy, since I too have strong opinions on issues, but I don’t want this site to be a sounding board for my own opinions.
I want to share content that gets people thinking, opens communication and helps people in any way I can. I am so grateful for my followers and sharing thoughts with you that I don’t ever want to jeopardize that, nor do I want to offend anyone or hurt their feelings. It’s just not what I’m about.
So I would really appreciate your forgiveness on this mistake, I’d like to say it won’t happen again, but the truth is, I’m only a man so I make mistakes.
Thank you for your understanding.
Let’s Spread the Words Together!
