Sometimes I HATE having a blog, Twitter, Facebook...basically ALL social media.
There is FAR too much room in the written word for interpretation and major misunderstandings can happen because of that.
Like a recent Tweet that I sent out that had NOTHING to do with anything blog related and EVERYTHING to do with real life (it has been cleared up, phew! but there was some residual damage, unfortunately).
I DO actually have a life that happens outside of my blog.
And sometimes I have to deal with people I would rather not have to deal with...toxic people.
In real life it is a lot harder than just "unfollowing" to shake these people, or delete them from your lives.
Most times it is because you work with them or are on a committee together or they are your family (not MY family, just using it as an example...relax mom).
So if I Tweet something and you think it could be about you, it most likely isn't.
I am not passive aggressive AT ALL.
Yep, if I have a problem with you, you know it. I appreciate when people let me know what I offend them so I assume everyone else would like the same favor.
I like to know, so I can apologize...or have a conversation to explain myself and my position and maybe not apologize but respectfully agree to disagree.
Not everyone can handle it. I just like to keep it real, and do my best to approach things with respect.
I recently found out that there is a letter going around to "Blacklist Mamarazzi".
I heard about it from a few REAL friends. I kind of wish I didn't know about it.
Ignorance IS bliss...I would rather not know I have a bunch of mean girls trying to take my blog down.
I really also don't have time for such nonsense.
I have tried to use my blog as a platform to bring people together.
Through swaps, Etsy features, link parties and even Queen for the Day....I just want fabulous women to know other fabulous women.
There truly is no hidden agenda.
I am not trying to gain the most followers or be the queen of blogging.
Really, I could careless about the numbers.
I just want to provide a place for people the gather and maybe lift each other up in support and love.
And...I want to brag about my family a little a long the way.
It is OK if you don't like me. Really. It is.
But how about YOU decide for yourself instead of following along with some mean girls with nothing better to do than gang up on other bloggers?
How does that sound? You are a big girl, you really can choose your own friends.
And guess what? I am currently accepting new friends soooo WINNING!!
OH and please stop asking me if I am upset about new link parties happening on the same day as mine.
I do not OWN any day of the week. This is a BIG blogsphere and there is LOTS of room for link parties...including mine.
I wish my friends well...I really do. I think the people who REALLY know me, know my heart and there is zero room for petty junk that speaks otherwise.
Speaking of link parties...My Happy List has been getting very few link ups, I was going to bag it all together, but I believe that what you pay attention to grows...and I can always use MORE Happy in my life. HOWEVER, I am tired of blogging on the weekends so I want to move it to another day. Please go vote in my poll up there on my sidebar. Thanks.
