I was thinking the other night about a new type of blog. Nothing earth shattering, just something to get me interested in blogging again. I've lost my mojo. One of the contributing factors being that my office is freezing and I don't like spending hours hidden away from the rest of the family. The other factor being that I'm just plumb out of ideas, so I came up with this.
The idea is that MG and I will pick a topic, could be anything, and then we'll draw straws or toss a coin to decide who will take the affirmative and who will take the negative. This could mean arguing for a point of view we don't believe in.
What type of topics will be covered. Well it's my intention to cover many aspects. I don't particularly want to focus on the same issues all the time.
Example: The Tour De France is an exciting event. That was a penalty! Abu Bakir Bashir should still be in jail. Energy concerns, will Nuclear solve all?
Hopefully it'll read ok, possibly generate some discussion. Let's see how it goes.
Format: We will post the topic for discussion, which side of the argument we will take and then we will argue out points via the comments section of each post and only allow viewer comments after we've completed the topic. Ideally we'll post a new topic on weekends and close the topic mid week.
In addition, if you would like to suggest a topic for discussion, leave us a comment or send an email to "opinionfreezone @ gmail.com". *
