Was It Something I Said?

Are some of ya'll upset with me? I haven't heard from so many blogettes recently, including co-preggies! or I've been taken off of some bloggy lists. A little hurt, peeps, a little hurt =)

Have I offended you? Please forgive me if I have!

I am always so self-conscious and careful about what I write because I'm afraid that I might offend someone; writing about little ones when couples are waiting for their own, that I'm too happy (which is never fake btw), too proud of my hubby or little one(s), or something that might offend someone's likes or dislikes.

I was doing so well for so long with not worrying about hellos, but for some reason I'm feeling a little bad about it right now. I know it's completely ridiculous. I have struggled with self esteem and comparing myself to others my entire life.

If I'm too cooky, too happy, show weakness, not funny or fashionable enough, then I won't be liked.

Maybe this will help=)... a Vegg.ie Tales, G0d Made Y0u Special preview hahaa =)



I want to be real. I want to be me without worrying about it. Whether that's a genuinely excited happy post, or dorky goofy random post, a completely boring just tellin' what I did today, or a I love my Hubby and fam post.

I want to be able to post that my husband told me I could take pole dancing classes and he would even put a pole in our bedroom. ha.

My main worry is that I've offended someone. I would always rather hear honesty peeps than you talking and thinking horrible things. =) (e-mail me anytime and tell me I'm crazy, left sidebar=))

So I'm going to stop worrying again. And I really hope I haven't turned you away because of something I said. We are blessed and I don't want to be cry cry about anything, because we really are truly blessed every single day. I am thankful for that. And for you!

I always think that too about what I say - you just never know how a comment will read after you have typed it out- my comments are way down as well - I think it is the nice weather - more people are OUT instead of IN.

Emily said...

Rebecca Jo said...

I'm still here & still loving your cute preggo self!!!

I too have been taken off some blog rolls & not sure why... but I have to remember, I'm who I am & if someone is offended or hurt by what they hear, I truly never mean to offend anyone but they can choose not to come back if they want... of course, it makes me sad as I would NEVER want to hurt anyone - but some people just need to do what makes them happy. I'm all for that!

In other words... dont sweat it!!! :o)

Lindsey said...

I'm still here! I love your blog and I love that we're blog friends! HUGS!

Megan said...

I'm still here! I agree wtih Emily, I bet you didn't hurt anybody's feelings, I bet people just get busy. Or sometimes I find myself reading new blogs and commenting and forgetting about my olds favs! But I always come back to them! No worries!

Lora Lynn @ Vitafamiliae said...

it will take a lot more than pole dancing to scare me!

Lori of I'm no super Mom said...

I am here! I have noticed things seem a little slow around my blog too, maybe it is because spring tends to be so busy! Take care!

inkOBSESSIONdesigns said...

I'm still here! I love your blog! :)

Tracy's Porch said...

I won't worry one bit. You are so very likeable. I think sometimes in the blog world we read but don't have time to comment on everything. A lot of times, I know I have time to read quickly and mean to go back later and comment but don't.

Heck, you have waaaayyy more commenters than I have :-)

BTW...I learn all my best life lessons from Veggie Tales. Another great one for self esteem is their Snoodles Tale DVD. That one made me cry!!!!

Amber said...

Sweet lady, this is YOUR blog, say whatever the heck you feel like saying on here! I'm a new follower but I love what I've seen so far. I'm like others, sometimes it's hard to comment on every post I read but it doesn't mean I don't enjoy reading. No worries, I don't think you've offended anyone :-)

Mandy Rose said...

I love your blog! Not sure what you could have said to offend anyone...you are always so sweet!! Keep writing!! I'll keep commenting!

Lucky in Love said...

Girlie...I wouldn't worry about it one bit! I'm kinda like that too though...sometimes I think I write a really funny post and I get like 2 comments :) Ha!

You are awesome...and I love ya...so keep right on posting about whatever you want and whatever you are feeling! I'll be reading :)

Tara Gibson said...

alyssa said...

The Pink Chick said...

You're perfect! Don't change a thing! I have been a little MIA lately because my computer and blogger aren't getting along. Half the time it won't let me comment. It's frustrating! I love your blog and always look forward to reading it!!!

Jenny.Lee said...

I think you're wonderful and imo you don't have anything to worry about!

Rachel said...

I am still reading!! I have been really busy lately and I am trying to catch up!! I love you girl and you never say anything to offend anyone!!!

Shanny said...

Well I recently found your blog and I haven't found any offensive post. I love your blog =)

Sweet Simplicity said...

You gotta love veggie tales!

SassyEngineer said...

I don't think you have done anything wrong! I just think people are busy these days and I know that sometimes I have enough blogs to read that it can feel like a full time job. I always read my blogs everyday, but sometimes I only have time to comment on the ones that really hit me that day for some reason or another. Just know that I am always reading and try to comment often :) You are great the way you are!

Suzette said...

Girl - we are two of a kind.. I almost cried one day when I saw that I lost a follower.. And then I noticed a fellow blogger that just quit commenting.. I am always wondering if I'm too happy, too negative, this or that.. and then I just had to remind myself, if they don't like it, then they won't read.. I do my blog for me and hope to have readers! Don't worry - I love your blog.. I missed you while you were P-MIA! Don't change who you are!

Faith said...

No way! You have a great blog and I love reading about you and your sweet little family. Please don't lose heart! People just get busy I think and may not comment on every post, but they still read...at least I do!

B said...

I just love your blog:) I'm a worry wart myself too:)

Becca said...

I dont even read your blog (yet!) I just stumbled on it today but just wanted to encourage you because I love that you are being real and honest - I am looking forward to reading more of your blog and getting to know you better :-)

Brittany Ann said...

I love your blog, and I appreciate all the things you share with us! No need to worry on my end! I'm a faithful follower!

Nikki said...

I'm still here and reading, just haven't had a lot of time for comments here are anywhere lately.

♥Mrs. V said...

I love your blog. I think you are a great writer. Keep it up.

Kristy said...

Aww... don't feel bad! I get that way too, especially one day when I lost a follower.

I have been crazy busy with the testing at school, the horrid tornado in town, not to mention basic life stuff! =)

You are so presh! I love your blog, and I usually am hurrying to read my faves at like 5:45 before getting ready for work, so I don't leave comments.

=) Feel better about it, okay?? You are sweet!!

Krystyn said...

I'm still here...just always playing catch up!!

I doubt you said anything. I think people are getting out and enjoying Spring.

Gwen said...

We love you!!! I know in my case I read so many blogs that I don't have time to comment on everyone's but I so try!!!

Did you really get a pole? I've been wanting one for years!!! I think it would be so much fun and I'd love to have Carmen's legs & abs!!!

BTW ~ your photos from this weekend are fabulous!!! XOXO

MLE said...

I've been silently following for awhile now...sorry I haven't said hello! Keep writing!

Piper Jacquelyn said...

If you've offended ANYONE, they are far too sensitive and possibly crazy, ha! I love your posts, the ones about you & your life are very intimate and lovely of you to share. Keep it up!

Sandy Toes said...

What could you possible do? Your posts are so kind. My comments have dropped lately...busy time of the year!
sandy toe

Your great~

Milltini said...

oh you are too sweet! you have done nothing wrong! you are always so upbeat and happy ;-) reading your blog is always a pleasure.

Piker Family said...

Girl you remind me so much of myself, always worrying that you have let somebody down. Sorry I haven't commented in a while, life has been busy. I haven't even blogged as much as I would like to lately. You are too funny to make anyone upset. Take care!

PS I like the sentence about the hubby and the pole dancing. Sounds just like my dear sweet husband.

ChickenGal said...

Don't worry about the comment to your blog. I don't get that many, I know some friends are reading it because when I see them, they comment on it. My dad won't post a comment, becasue he doesn't want to sign up for stuff, but I know he read mine and any I have in my sidebar. Keep on writing....I find it great therapy....and folks are busy this time of the year...Holidays, spring chores, vacations...who knows....this is your blog....just keep posting, we all enjoy it.

Abbie said...

I've been struggling to keep up lately and haven't been leaving comments very often. It must be spring!

~Mrs. Guru~ said...

I am still here!

Beth said...

You silly girl :) No worries that you're offending anyone. You must be one of the most caring people I know! I love the pole dancing comment...don't let my hubby hear though or he may expect a pole in our bedroom too :) ha!

Jon and Steph said...

I love your blog little lady! I am just a terrible blogger sometimes and don't always comment! With this huge time difference it is always so hard to get caught up with everyone's blogs! While I am sleeping everyone is blogging and vise versa!

No worries girl! I've never been offended reading your posts ;)

Saskia said...

Please keep writing! I love your blog, your comments & your writing. I'm very glad you found me!

yours truly... said...

Oh my! You must not worry!! You are a sweetheart and you only have great things to say...if someone can't see that, they deserve to be reading!! You are amazing, keep your chin up lady!

USCEmily said...

No worries- I still love ya! And I always read, even if I don't comment sometimes! The only reason I'm not a follower is I had reached my limit- although I think they are allowing more than 200 now!
Thanks for posting the link to my giveaway :-) Good luck!

Heather said...

I think the fact that you have received more than 47 comments in less than 24hrs should be answer enough, don't you? Lord, if I ever got that many responses for one of my posts I think I would faint from the shock ;)!

Masker # 7 said...

Listen to Heather...and all the other bazillion comments left in response to this post! :) I do have a question about why you use a zero in place of an "o" in some words. This probably reveals my ignorance of internet stuff...but I'm curious if it's to keep search engines from 'finding' your post.
See, how's that for a comment...PROOF that I'm a careful reader! :)

Trina said...

Girl! You get WAY more comments than I ever do! LOL I average about 10 per post and not even that many sometimes. Yet, I have over 200 subscribers...go figure.

I think alot of people just do what I call the "driveby" (read and leave) and I am guilty of it alot too which is why I don't get hung up on it anymore. I have tons of real life friends that read my blog and NEVER comment, even my mom. So I'll go to tell them something and they are like, Yeah I read it on your blog. Well How would I KNOW? LOL

Don't be worried about it. I blog knowing my friends read and if no one comments. Oh well :)

Ashley said...

I am so much like you! I worry about stuff like this all the time!

I just found your blog recently so you probably weren't missing my comments too much but I am definitely still reading :)

writing4612 said...

What you write is fine! Trust me.

If people don't like your blog, they don't have to read it. This is a place for YOU to write down your thoughts, fears, frustrations, etc. You don't have to write (or not write) something to please someone else.

It took me a few years to learn that I'm living my life for me and no one else. If you constantly worry about what others think or if you've offended them, you'll be stressed to the max. I speak from experience on that one. :)

Just keep writing!
