Television, radio and newspapers invite comments. So do blogs. Being heard is important to many people, whether it is an opinion about something broad (like politics) or more personal, like an issue at work, or in a relationship.
Some who comment here do so because they want to air their views, their world view, others want to change things, others think their comment, or other people’s comments are part of a larger party affiliated agenda, there are many reasons for people to express their views
I post because there are issues I care about. I have cared about most of them for over 2 decades, so my “caring” is not new. If 1 person reads one thing I write on 1 of the things I care about and thinks slightly differently about it than they did before, I consider I have achieved something of what I come here for. Mostly I learn from others who post.
But let’s all remember (I include myself in particular) that all of us who make comments on this and other blogs can sometimes get carried away with our own sense of importance, cos we have a chance to say “what we reckon” about stuff.
In the end we are just offering up our versions of what do you reckon? Enjoy
