Hello!

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine’s Day weekend (I did!- thank you husband for being so sweet!)

But alas, it is Monday.

I’m not a fan of Mondays, which means it’s a fitting day to address a little unpleasantness that I feel must be addressed.

I have gotten the occasional critical e-mail and rude anonymous comments, but lately it has been happening more often.

The number one complaint in these e-mails/comments is that I don’t post every single day (why the f*ck didn’t you post my giveaway? comes in second.)

I never publish the rude comments and I don’t reply to the e-mails, but since I know these lovely people read my blog, I wanted to say this to them:

This blog is not my job or my life. It is a hobby. I apologize if you suffer from withdrawal on the days that I don’t post. I really do. However, there is this thing called google that you can use to search for giveaways yourself.

Oh and to the people that complain that I don’t post their giveaways, please read this.


Moving on, I love this shirt by Blood Sweat and ink. It seems perfect for this post.




Have a great day everyone, hope you win some giveaways! ;)

First I want you to know that I think that t-shirt is the PERFECT answer to those rude posters. I am sorry that they mess with you - I like your posts/blog and think it is awful that they are so mean. Just ignore them and pretend that they do not exist, because they do not in the real world, that is why they are mean in the virtual world! lol Keep up the good work.

Some people are just not happy - no matter what you do. I don't get it either, my parents always told us "If you can't say something nice - don't say anything at all!".
You are doing a wonderful job and have give aways listed I haven't seen anywhere else. Keep up the great work!!
