Let’s Talk Opinion in conversation with YOU


You Will Be Offended launched the new Let’s Talk Opinion series of discussion posts on the 31st of October 2013. The majority of posts in this series are conversations with other bloggers. When I come across a topic that strikes a chord with me I pick it up and think it through – accepting the original premise and expanding on it, or sometimes sidestepping, or rejecting it altogether.

The issues that I comment on are important in and of themselves, but there is another aspect to this series that is equally important to me. It is a chance for me to connect with you. Whether it is by including one of your posts in the series, or whether it is through the commentary that follows – I am always sure to learn something new and gain fresh insights – all because you are generous in sharing your opinions. For this, I thank you.

I am sure that there are many an important issue left unearthed still. With so many posts making their way to the WordPress Reader daily, some are bound to escape my notice. So… here is what I propose.  If you have written on a topic that is close to your heart and would like to have my take on it, then send me the link to that post via email at viki.briggs@gmail.com, including the answers to the following questions:

  1. Why is this topic important to you?
  2. What is the key message you would like the reader to take with them from your post?
  3. If you could ask me only three questions in reference to your post, what would those questions be?

I will reply to confirm that I have received your email, and once I’ve had a chance to read your post, I will let you know the date on which a Let’s Talk Opinion post in conversation with you will be published.

Every participant will be nominated for the “Whiskey Award” – this is a No Rules and No Obligations award that simply aims to acknowledge your contribution to the Let’s Talk Opinion series and it will be my way of saying thank you for your company and conversation.

Look forward to your emails.


Let’s Talk Opinion posts engage with issues that are important to other bloggers, connecting with others on matters close to their heart.

If you like a topic and you would like to contribute, please feel free to add to the comment box, reblog, share, email me, or message me on Twitter @shardsofsilence.
Or if like me you happen to be a Hogwartsian send me a letter by owl

    • Look forward to receiving your email, Bradley. There’s no hurry. Just wanted to let you know that if you would like to get some additional discussion on a post, I’m happy to include it and try and add to it.

  1. Sorry its still early morning here and my coffee has run out so Im terribly slow….:) this sounds like a great idea…so if I have a topic close to my heart I can bring it here (or email) and after youve had a read through, you will open for discussion? Again, sorry for repetition but this idea has a good tone for me. thanks x

    • Yep – that’s right 🙂 email would be best, because then I can put it in a separate folder and have it to return to without it being lost amongst other messages. Let me know and thank you for taking an interest. 🙂
