In my previous blog post, I explained that I have been working for 12 hours a day, every day, for the past two weeks. When I get home from work, I have about 1-1/2 hours to eat and do errands before I have to go to bed, because I am so tired and I have to wake up at 4:30 a.m. One of the things that I like to do while I am eating, is check my e-mail, check my Facebook account, and check my blog website statistics and comments.
A few days ago, I was noticing on my Facebook account, many angry looking North Dakotans that I don’t personally know, looking at my Facebook profile. This is a result of both my blog website, and other things that I have done. However, in the mix of the angry looking North Dakotans, there were a couple of prominent North Dakotans, and one well-known female British author.
This well-known female British author has published half a dozen successful books, and she regularly appears on talk shows. She lives in London, and there would not be any reason for her to look me up on Facebook, other than the fact that several of the very specific subjects that she has been writing about recently, I have written about in some of my blog posts. I am flattered that she made some deliberate effort to find out who I was in order to look me up on Facebook.
Unfortunately, I have also written many blog posts about women, which I believe that she probably doesn’t like or appreciate, which is probably why she has not replied to my e-mail that I sent to her. This is no surprise to me, and I hope that I can write more things to irritate her and other women.
As far as the angry looking North Dakotans viewing my Facebook profile, it is good that they are reading my blog posts. Even if they don’t agree with what I am writing, at least they can become aware of other people’s perspectives. More and more people becoming aware of other people’s point of view, experiences, and opinions on Dickinson will, I think, help to change Dickinson for the better.
