Secondhand Sunday

Sunday, December 26, 2010

Sundays are my Secondhand day. I'm basically too lazy to think of anything new to say so I 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.


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. I missed it the first tome,so is new news to me lol
    now im off to read about poop, anorgasmia and strapons :)

  2. Amen. This same sort of shit has happened to me before too. I'd bet the majority of these bloggers are drunk posting about their dysfunctional families. Grrr.

  3. That has yet to happen to me. I do have some that I follow just disappear never to blog again on that page. Are ya spose to report them as missing?

  4. My beagle is perfectly happy to have a stripper chick check in on his cute doings. In fact, he prefers stripper chicks. He is a hound after all.

    Hope you respect me in the morning. :-)

    Yeah, WTF?

    @Simply Suthern,
    Yes, that's happened too.

    @R. Jacob,
    Thank you. Then I won't have to hunt you down.

    Best comment ever!

  6. I hate it when this happens. I think I have had a few readers drop off (the opposite of your problem) because I've been trying to make my blog more me and less Miss Goody Two Shoes that it was...however, my MIL AND husband still read it, so I have to keep it somewhat plastic still. ha!


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