And this is exactly where I should have stayed today, safely away from the internet and people who are unhappy, upset, or angry at me for something I wrote on this blog!
Yes, I deleted an entire blogpost today, about one of the occupational hazards of being a blogger are how sometimes people get unhappy with what you write. And one of the people I wrote about (who feels I have been unfair to his platform) then messaged me to tell me that he was unhappy that I had said that he was unhappy! He ripped a strip off me for that.
In retrospect, I totally fucked up by even saying publicly that I had talked with him at all today, and mentioning him in that blogpost.
So I apologized, and then I deleted the entire blogpost. It’s gone.
And this was after I had to calm down somebody else who was genuinely upset and angry about something I wrote, and who tore a strip off me as well via direct messaging on Discord.
You know what? I am going back to bed, pulling the covers over my head, and staying there.
