As I type this I am listening to the podcast of the interview Gareth Cliff had with Steve Hofmeyer. It was a really interesting debate. Say what you may about him but Gareth can hold a good debate, he removes emotion which many of us battle to do when we are trying to arguing our point.
In between writing and listening I am also taking part in a discussion on a Facebook group about monetizing your blog. There are differing views and opinions. Some I agree with some I don’t.
I have been lucky enough to engage in some really healthy debates and discussions online and in person. Ansie and her husband and David and I have the best debates and discussions. We argue and fight and try to get our point across. It is really great isn’t it?
I think we are all so privileged to live in an era where we have this totally freedom of speech to express our opinions, thoughts and beliefs. We are never all going to agree and that’s ok but the fact that we can voice that is awesome.
The fact that we can say we don’t agree with our president or that journalists can chant in parliament or that we have blogs where we are able to share our stories honestly and openly is pretty special.
So this week I am grateful that we live in a time where we have freedom of speech.
