So I had a blogger life changing moment yesterday: I received my first rude anonymous comment. No surprise it was in response to last week's I'm Just Sayin post.
"Just a little self absorbed??!! I'm just sayin..."And I find myself in a dilemma. Respond or don't respond. Ignore or don't ignore.
The thing is, I have absolutely zero problems with a reader voicing their opinion regarding my posts - even if it isn't necessarily lovey dovey. But please, if you're going to leave a comment, especially a rude comment, have the courtesy to sign your name to it! It's so cowardly.
And if this particular reader had left their name, I would have made an effort to let them know that I agree with them on some level. Yes, I'm a little self absorbed. I'm a blogger. I write four to five posts each week filled with my thoughts on any given topic of my choosing.
It's kind of all about me here: my life, my likes, my dislikes, my hobbies, my every day activities. *Me* *Me* *Me*
I'm certainly not under the impression that I am better than anyone else. And by no means are my life or my writing grand enough to entertain the masses. Just a girl - blogging because I like it.
And if posting my snotty thoughts regarding the rude/inappropriate/obnoxious people I come into contact with on a weekly basis is an outlet that allows me to refrain from actually telling those rude/inappropriate people what I think every time someone gets on my nerves - then I'd say that's a pretty fair trade. Some people use this tool called sarcasm - it doesn't make them evil - just sarcastic.
Oh and if you don't like reading my self absorbed thoughts, don't come by my blog. I'm just sayin.....
That's all on this topic! Here's hoping you all have a speedy work day and a fabulous weekend!
And yes - I'm fully aware that this response may have been somewhat dramatic or childish - but again, it's my blog and I reserve the right to act like I'm in high school if I prefer. Promise to be an adult come Monday! :)
