Some of the things I most appreciate about blogging are your comments. Some of them come to me via Facebook. Occasionally, someone will email me directly. And, of course, I get a few on the blog directly.
Most of the comments are thoughtful. A few have surprised me. And more than a few, written mostly in response to one particular post of mine about race, are rather… let’s say, telling. But those are far in the minority, thankfully.
I know for certain that comments influence what I write. Sometimes, they may lead to posts in response. I admit I LOVE these. When I write a post, I don’t usually come with the thought that what I think is the gospel. I can be persuaded about some topics, although anything involving a lack of civility probably won’t sway me. By the same measure, it’s why I tend to read more right-wing newsletters. I’m willing to be persuaded.
Really, I am!
So I’m interested in whatever you are interested in asking me. I write this to say that when you think of your Ask Roger Anything questions – and SURELY, you will – see if there are ideas, thoughts, and ideologies of mine that have changed over the years. I’m sure there are some. I hope I’m not the same person I was when I was 24 as I am now. Maybe you can probe into some specific topics.
As I’ve indicated in the past, no questions are out-of-bounds. Well, at least so far, I haven’t received one. Maybe yours will be the first! And even the ones I might duck, I’ll point out WHY it is not being answered.
As always, I’ll be sure to respond in the next four or five weeks. Post your questions in the comments section of the blog. OR contact me on Facebook. Always look for the duck.
I’ll use your name unless you specify that you want to be anonymous. Hey, why don’t you come up with a pseudonym? Comment here, e-mail me at rogerogreen (AT) Gmail (DOT) com, or send me a message on Facebook.
