I Must Confess…My Most Controversial Post

Hello there! I hope the weekend has treated you well and left you ready to get into a new week.

We’re aiming to start the week off with a bang today on I Must Confess by sharing our most controversial posts.

Some people thrive on writing controversial material and love the battle of opinions that come from that. Others, like me, aren’t so sold on putting our opinions out there and waiting for the masses to attack.

If you are like me, and avoid confrontation like the plague, there wouldn’t be too many controversial posts to choose from. However, I have written a handful of opinion posts in my time like this one as part of the Problogger 31 days to build a better blog challenge and this one in my fight against cuts to education funding.

But I have chosen this post to share today as it really has been my most controversial post to date. It attracted my very first negative comment and led to a few discussions at the time on social media.

Do you have a controversial post to share? Go on, be brave and put it out there again for more comment and attention. Isn’t that why we write these posts in the first place?

  1. I tend to stay away from controversial topics. Well, that’s not true, I’ve published some controversial stuff, but obviously no one reads my blog. ha ha! I’m sharing something a little controversial today. As for beauty pageants for kids….ugh, don’t get me started! Perhaps the mother was hoping she’d win the looks so she could tell her that her autism didn’t matter b/c at least she’s beautiful or some total utter CRAP like that?! I wonder what those women are thinking who put their kids in those things. Have a great week Kirsty! x

  2. The most controversial post I ever wrote was on my old blog, Footprints Australia. It was about my experience with the Quiverfull / Above Rubies movement, and I wrote it after a story appeared on Sunday Night a couple of years back.

    It was exciting at first to have lots of traffic and comments but over time I got really bored with it. Now I’m glad it’s all been deleted!!!!

      It can be tiring dealing with the aftermath of controversial posts. Yes, the traffic can be exciting but dealing with differing views and defending your own point can be tiresome! I’d rather be nice and inoffensive… 🙂

  3. I’ve linked up yesterday’s blog post because apart from being on the tail end of Perth Fashion Festival and fatigued I’m guessing the fact I didn’t do a glossy full on feature after being invited backstage could be seen as controversial.

    It also has a giveaway which I’d love one of the I must confess regulars to win.

    Hope you are having a much better day.

      I will definitely be checking out the giveaway Raych. And I am having a much better day – thank goodness the worst effects of this cold seem to have left me…finally!

    I don’t do controversial posts at all. I’m just not good at that sort of thing. I do have opinions but I feel like I’m totally out of my depth attempting to explain or back them up. Plus, I mainly wanted to blog as a fun hobby or outlet not to argue with people. I don’t have time or energy to pointlessly debate issues or argue with people on the internet. Playing it safe I guess, but oh well. Sigh. I do enjoy reading other people’s controversial posts from time to time, though.

  5. Kirsty says:

    I feel exactly the same as you Ness. It’s very rare for me to write a controversial post – it seems to only happen when I am especially riled up! Most of the time it is far more pleasant and civilised to be nice and play it safe. It might be boring but it is most definitely comfortable!

  6. Oh I love this idea, although I am yet to write a controversial post. When I do {get enough guts} though, ill be the first the link up over here. Can’t wait to read those {with guts} who have linked up already. Good work.

    • Kirsty says:

      This week’s posts (as usual) are awesome. The linkup is a weekly thing so feel free to come back and link up whenever you have the opportunity!

  7. Rhianna says:

    I am a controversy free zone as well. Even the few posts I thought might raise a mild heated discussion didn’t. Not that I mind, sometimes fence sitting is easier.

    Also sorry for being so slow in my comment love this week lovely. I promise I will get round to everyone before Monday!

  8. Pip says:

    I despise confrontation and all the masses commenting and yet there’s a certain strength in stepping outside of your comfort zone and declaring what you believe in despite popular opinion being against you. Great topic! Shall read through others controversy when I can 🙂

    • Kirsty says:

      I have really enjoyed reading these posts. I’m not very controversial myself but I can be if the passion and the outrage is there, impelling me to write!

  9. I’m too chicken to write anything controversial. It’s very beige over on my blog (literally and figuratively!)

    I used to stay away from controversial topics now I seem to just “let it rip” Especially since we got that twat in as PM…don’t get me started, Kirsty. Don’t. Get. Me. Started! 😉

      Don’t worry Grace, you’re preaching to the converted here. My public servant heart was ripped to shreds earlier this week with the start of the expected sackings and changes. Let’s hope he doesn’t do too much irreversible damage over the next 3 years…

  11. I stay away from controversy on my blog too, quite boring. I do love reading these interesting posts though, they really give us something to think about.
    Maybe I should start to be a bit more daring. x

  13. Not so controversial. More a confession/reflection of excessive OMO consumption..
    Have a great week Kirsty
