I’ve been trying to keep politics off my blog. I guess I’m afraid I’d lose readers, people wouldn’t like me anymore, they’d say mean things, and I’d be all alone again.
I’ve led a very compartmentalized life–still do, in many ways. But I want to be all of myself as much as I can. There are some times I can’t. For instance, I don’t discuss my mental illness issues with the people I work with on the Obama campaign. But this blog is my space, and I want to be as whole as I can be here. And part of who I am is a volunteer and local data coordinator for Obama for America.
Probably I’ll talk more about the experience of working on President Obama’s campaign than about policy, though I can’t promise there won’t be any policy rants.
Probably some people will get mad. I might lose readers. People might comment negatively. I’ll try to be okay with that, even though it won’t be easy for me.
I just want to be all of me here.
