I have decided to bring back She’s Right.
This is something I have thought a lot about over the past few years. When I stopped blogging about politics, it was because I realized that I wasn’t really sure what I thought anymore. But I knew that once I sorted that out, I would return to blogging one day.
I debated whether I should just start a new political blog, or maybe do political posts on my other blog, Shatter Nicely. Ultimately, I decided to come back here and revisit my old posts from the perspective of my current political views, which are much more liberal.
From the new about page:
Over the past five years, I have slowly started to become politically involved again, and I found that my views were the complete opposite of what they had been before. I also found that there were things I had written here that I strongly disagree with now, and frankly, am a little ashamed of.
I decided that the remedy for that was to come back to She’s Right and right the wrongs—or at least rewrite them.
I will not be removing any old posts, only writing a rebuttal to each one that I disagree with, publishing it as a new post, and linking to it in the original post, so that anyone who finds their way to an old post will be able to read both sides.
Thanks for reading She’s Right. I hope you get something out of your time spent here, and I welcome your contributions to the discussion.
So that is what I am doing here. I already have three posts that I am working on from way back when She’s Right first started on Blogger in early 2006.
There is something satisfying for me about coming back to a blog named “She’s Right” to admit that I had been so wrong. I’ve left these opinions that I disagree with, in some cases strongly, just hanging out here for anyone to read, unchallenged. I felt like the only proper way to remedy that situation was to do it here.
I will probably also occasionally post about current political issues and events, because how could I blog about politics and not do that?
For a more in-depth look at my views, take a look at the new about page. I took each line from my list of political views on my original about page and contrasted it with what I think now.
I am really looking forward to this new project, and I hope to read your comments in the weeks and months to come.
