Due to the same annoying cold/flu/bane of my existence (I know, I know, I sound like a broken record), today's post will be anything but meaningful. Or spelled correctly. Or have decent grammar. I just don't feel like it. Take that 17 years of education!
But that's okay because I have things to share that don't require any of those boring things :)
Firstly I want to show off the beautiful Easter rings that I won a few weeks ago in a blog competition. They were HANDMADE (I am still so impressed) by this lovely lady here.
How cool are they?!
Secondly, I thought I would finally work up the courage and share some of the pin-up photos I had taken. Please don't laugh!!!
Lastly, I guess I had a little bit of a gripe that I wanted to share about blogger. Well, not blogger per se, but some of the people who use it. There is too much of an emphasis on followers. It shouldn't be a popularity contest, but sometimes it seems like it is. I'm sick of people commenting: 'I love your blog, it's my favourite..now follow me.' I don't want people following me if they don't want to read my blog. At the same time, I don't want to follow blogs I don't enjoy reading. I would much rather have ten followers that like some of things I write, than a thousand followers who hate my posts or don't ever bother reading them.
I comment on people's blogs when I enjoy what they have written, and I honestly don't expect a comment back out of politeness. If what I wrote makes you want to comment, go for it, I love it. But I don't want comments simply so the person commenting can get a comment back.
I don't want to come off as grumpy or rude, nor is it a shot at any of the lovely people who comment on or follow my blog (you guys are amazing and adore you all!)..just at those random people whose comments only include 'nice!' then their blog address.
Gosh I am a grump when I'm sick :p
