Remember in high school when you had to write a persuasive paper? It involved choosing a side and then arguing (in a good way) the finer points in an effort to persuade others to see your side of that particular issue.
Blogging is a little like that. Bloggers are passionate people who find their voice on the internet. It is next to impossible to be objective in blogging because every blogger brings a unique set of circumstances to the dashboard of their blog. We write in order to convince.
So, today I bring you posts that are overtly persuasive in nature. You may not agree with them, you may agree a little, you may wholeheartedly embrace what they write, but all will make you think. And that is the best part of persuasive writing, in my opinion…
the opportunity to think.
First up is a post from a second generation homeschooler entitled 10 Reasons Not to Home School #4: You are the Best Person to Teach Your Child. Second generation homeschoolers always fascinate me. While you may not agree with everything Rebecca writes on her blog, The Present Mom, you will definitely be given the opportunity to think.
Next up is a post from Family, Faith & Fridays:
In Michele’s post Where Did Modesty Go?, she gives a call for parents to protect their children’s modesty on the internet. She agonized over actually posting about this topic. I’m sure she would love to hear your thoughts on the matter.
And lastly, a post from Elizabeth at Yes, They’re All Ours entitled How Do You Look At Your Husband where she asks, “What do people see on our faces as wives when we look at our husbands?”
Now it’s your turn to make us think!
