I sometimes think about how much outside stuff (as in non-writing posts) to talk about here. After all, there's a hell of a lot of stuff going on globally that worries and interests me. The thing is I have to consider that anyone having a look at my blog isn't here for my politics. They're here to read about horror stories. But at the same time, I can't deny important issues and I'm not big on self-censorship.
So where do I find the balance? Do I stick to talking about my books or do I post about the Pussy Riot verdict (which I find deeply depressing, which makes me want to stick my finger up at Putin and the Russian Chuch, which scares the shit out of me)? Do I post about Winnie Johnson's death and how I think God has a shitty sense of humour? Do I say a big fuck you to the five Tory MPs who think British workers are lazy while the MPs are on their long summer break?
Or do I just keep on posting about my writing and films I like and books I've read? Do I keep my mouth shut and my politics to myself or do I shout about the things that need to be shouted?
