I wanted to jump in at a time when I don’t normally post. Especially twice in one day. Because I prefer to pace myself.
I’ve had BlogHer ads on my sidebar for many years, and have enjoyed a wonderful working relationship with them. As bloggers, we’re allowed to say what we do and don’t want in the form of advertising. Early on, I decided that I never wanted my blog to be a mouthpiece for politics. Either my own views, or others. If I’m going to discuss politics, it’s going to be face to face. So that there is no way someone could misinterpret my heart or thoughts. I will not even discuss politics on Facebook.
That said, I noticed today that ads for the Obama campaign were popping up under my BlogHer ads. I’m sure this is some sort of mixup over at BlogHerads.com, and I’ve submitted a request that they be taken down.
We’re going to be bombarded with a whole lot of politics over the next few months, and I’d prefer to keep the conversation serious here at Fiddledeedee.net. You know, hard hitting topics like hot flashes, Angry Birds, bunions, and inappropriate humor.
I’ll leave the politics to those who will do a much better job than I would. All I will say on the matter is JUST VOTE.
Happy Independence Day, my friends. I’m going to take a few days off to mentally and physically prepare myself for our upcoming school year (which starts in TWO weeks…hold me) and be awfully grateful to live in the United States. Where I will never ever take our freedom for granted.
Stepping down daintily from my soapbox.
