    Its normal I don't see any mistakes. Maybe you wanted to know the difference between them so I hope the next one would check it for you.

    your opinions are welcomed
    This sentence is passive voice which mean that your opinions are welcomed by him/her or someone else.

    If all these two sentences are right then whats the difference between them

    Thanks
