I wasn’t going to post today because my stomach hurt too much; not from my IBS acting up, but from all the laughing I’ve done these last few days. I had to block any further comments on last Friday’s post because of something that was said in my review:
“I think that the internet has replaced the girlfriend phone circle…Readers get involved in inane blog fights and pass whole weeks away, madly typing nonsense into cyberspace.”
Well, yeah, I agree and enough is enough. Plus, if anyone is going to get my panties in a bunch it will be My Better Half and they’ll be on the floor in the bedroom.
I do want to state that I did reread my review and gave some thought to what little was specifically aimed toward my blog and not the Mommy Bloggers in general. The two bits of advice my reviewer had for me were:
First, I need to do something with my template. I wholeheartedly agree. It is generic and not pleasing to the eye. I used what Blogger had and I’m planning on changing it once I have an idea of what I want and when I figure out how to do it. I confess I am technologically challenged and lazy.
Second, she said I have nothing entertaining. I am also taking this bit of advice to heart. Though I try to be amusing it may not always turn out that way. I am not an aspiring writer, or a comedienne or someone with a thorough knowledge on any one subject. What I write is light hearted fluff if you will. But that’s me and I can’t be anyone else. I guess I need to get the notion out of my head that I need to post Monday through Friday. When you try to force a post out it doesn’t always work; so I won't do it anymore.
Another bit of constructive criticism I got was in the comment section of my blog. “Anyone can buy a Would You Rather book.” This is true and though I giggled at the prospect of having readers squirm at their keyboards deciding which was the lesser of two evils, it is not original.
I’m not sure when I'll post again. When I do it will be in line with what I've done in the past. It may not be the best style, but it’s mine.
