Secondhand Sunday

Sunday, December 6, 2009

I've decided to make Sundays my Secondhand day. I'm basically too lazy to think of anything new to say so I thought I would re-post a "vintage" entry.

If you aren't in the mood for repeats, please feel free to change the channel.

I got the boot. Again.

When I started this blog in January, I looked around the vast blogging world to see what was out there and I started following two very sweet, simple blogs.

The first was created by a woman about my age who had a little boy and a Beagle. I think you know what the draw was for me. And no, it wasn't the little boy or the Mom. I checked in daily to see what shenanigans her son or puppy had gotten into. I commented on a few of her posts and she commented on mine.

About a month ago, I clicked on her link in my favorites and got this message:

"This blog is for invited readers only."

I thought it must be an error so I clicked it again.

"This blog is for invited readers only."

I checked my email, certain that the invitation link would be found there.


I give this woman three months of my life and this is the thanks I get in return? Does she think she's better than me?


When I told Bernie what happened, this was her reaction.

Well, I still had my sweet, little family of three who live in a blue house. They go on lots of family outings, Easter egg hunts and car rides. No one is bitching about the economy or the jerk they work with.

"Here's Munchkinetta with her new umbrella."

Sweet, simple stuff.

I went to check in with them last night.

"This blog is for invited readers only."

I knew it wasn't a mistake this time. Mr. & Mrs. Wholesome realized that a stripper chick who wears strap ons, talks about poop and who may or may not have Anorgasmia has been following them. What will their priest say when he logs on to see Munchkinetta's First Communion photos and sees me? Mon Dieu!

Get over your holier than thou selves! You're lucky I was following your stupid little blog. And Munchkinetta? Not so cute.

So, to any of you that I'm following..if you decide to make your blog an "invited readers only" one...don't worry, I won't take it personally.


  1. Shirley. You jest.
    There had to have been a serious head injury. Really. I mean who would exclude YOU? At the risk of sounding like I'm kissing up here (I really don't care) your blog is just plain fun and entertaining on every level.
    She was jealous. Or a dumbass.
    Carry on.

  2. You can follow my blog any time, anorgasmia or not.

  3. Hey Chrissy, this happened to me a while back. I was equally baffled. Bernie summed it up for me, so I'll say no more. Indigo

  4. I have had a couple of those....

    "Just Lyrical Coder"...but I think I scared him out of my life - I had been trying for 3 months:)

    And "Wind in your vagina" - like Phillipia talk is worse than that?????

    Actually, I had the Lyrical Coder thing coming to me - I can be a bitch; but the Wind in your vagina one - I did not even think about it being just me - I naively thought that maybe something happened that the blogger did not want just anyone he did not know reading his blog - cuz he did have some pics of his kids on their....and there are crazies out there....

  5. I know a lot of "photographers" who are taking money, but don't have tax licenses have recently gone to invitation only blogs, but one would assume that they're hiding from the tax man.

    These family bloggers seem to be motivated by the thought that somebody might find out too much about their family and try to rob their home if they post pics showing the homes contents and talk about vacations, or they are worried about somebody kindnapping "munchkin"......cute or not.


  6. Isn't the world of cyper-clicks grand? I love your sense of self and humor. :)

  7. Damn. A snub from the internet? That's just harsh.

  8. @Cynica,
    You're my new best friend. :-)


    Yes, I just don't get it.

    You're such a trouble maker. :-)

    Thank you. Mwwaahh!

    I know! WTF?

  9. Stupid, stuck-up, outrageous, undignified, ungrateful buggers!!!

    How DARE they.

    I'm with Bernie. The hell with 'em. You've got over 300 ppl who looooove you.

    They wish.

  10. Some blogs should've always been private. If it's open to the world you can't complain when the world sees it. And comments. The world loves to share their opinions. Sometimes even when the world is drunk and says things they may regret later.

  11. Great post! Such stuck-ups. Especially when what you say seems to be much more interesting then either of their blogs :)

    Found you through Kathryn's blog... Subbing now :)


C'mon, you know you want to say it..
