Well, I tried
For some time I've been graced by some critics who take me to task for not being sufficiently "positive" about the area and the achievements of it's leaders. They attempt to slam me for being against everything, which of course, isn't remotely the case.
Feeling a bit guilty, I thought I'd do a post on what people really liked about the area, seeing as there must be positive things that I'd somehow been guilty of overlooking. If my critics were correct, I was ignorant of great things going on all over the place. This would surely be a way to get a flood of the "positivity" that they felt was lacking.
I even made my own list to get people started and then appealed to readers to share things they like about the area.
Well, the post has been up for four days now, sufficient time for people to respond, and so far, exactly ONE reader has managed to come up with 3 things they liked about the area.
I'd thought that at least those who've banged on the blog and local media for being "negative" would have at least contributed, but I guess I was wrong. Apparently they have a tough time thinking of things that are really great about the area themselves, even though they expect it of myself and the media in general.
The area surely isn't THAT bad. From hearing the critics, there's surely a wealth of things going on for which we all should be grateful.
So... again... can anyone think of anything they really like about this area? Anyone?
If so, let us know by commenting on the "That's what I like about you" post below.
