Good question, Lorel. Is yours the only answer?
Here is another question: Can we talk about our own path without being told we are simply wrong by someone who has never met us?
AikiWeb to me seems to be about discussion. I like to discuss. I would not say you are wrong and I am right. I like to hear about other peoples experiences. Can that be okay too?
You can, and that's a good venue for a blog, which isn't interactive.
Participating in a discussion opens yourself to the possibility that people will disagree with whatever you happen to be saying - otherwise it's just a mutual agreement party where people secretly disagree behind your back. I prefer the open disagreements.
