Sometimes ... I Hate Blogging!

I published a post yesterday and then I pulled it (I have since reposted it below).

I pulled the post because I offended someone with its content (and they let me know) and also because the comment they left - made me mad. My intent was not (nor ever is) to offend anyone and it makes me so angry when people take one of my stories and twist it into something that it is not - something mean and ugly.

A few days ago, someone left a comment on another older post that was mean and it not only angered me, but hurt my feelings tremendously. I deleted the comment, but have not forgotten the hateful words.

I don't mention the hateful comments I run across on older posts - I usually just delete them. Lately, it has not been so easy to ignore them.

Let me just say this - I never leave mean or hateful comments on any site. Even when I don't agree with the content of a post - I would never say anything hurtful or rude. If I don't like something that is written - I click out of the site and go on.

It's time for me to take a break from blogging. I have written a lot of stories and I have enjoyed writing every single one. I have many more stories to tell - but not right now.

I'm tired.
I'm hurt.
I'm frustrated.
I'm angry.
I'm not having fun.

I'll be back - when I feel happier.

Right now ...

I am sad.

Right now ...

I hate blogging.

Take care - Kellan

Note: I do not write this post for sympathy or even support. I write it to let you know where I am and hope you will be around when I come back. I know many of you are my friends - the problem is - I don't know who is and who is not. None of us do.

I have reposted the original post from yesterday - with a disclaimer (it's right below this post). I deleted the negative comment, as I have the right to do that and also because this person did leave her name and I am not interested in encouraging others to find out who she is or visiting her site.

♥ I know you don't want sympathy but I'm actually sad that you're not going to be posting!!! It ticks me off when people do that and then don't even fess up to it but have to do it anonymously! You'll be missed... Hope you're back soon!

Darla said...

Wow. It makes me sad that someone, anyone, can take something so positive and so joyous and turn it ugly. That is something that also has found its way into my life from time to time (not in my blog-thankfully mine is teeny-tiny with only nice people that visit). I really have struggled with that myself from time to time. I tend to naturally see things quite simply and for what they are. I don't try to dig any further into them to find any other meaning because I believe that most people don't mean anything but good. If they have meant something other than good, I count on them to tell me that or I will assume otherwise (unless if it's just plain old obvious). I so often am left like you are, going from living parallel to the universe (living and letting live) to suddenly stopped in my tracks, wondering how something just neutral could have been turned into something ugly and cold. Then I ponder human nature in general....

Tabitha said...

Kellan ~ I am so sorry that this has happened ~ I totally love your blog, like you I would never ever leave a nasty comment on someones blog, no matter what I thought ~ I would just leave if I did not like it!
I hope that you will be back soon ~ as I would truly miss you if you didn't blog anymore.
Take care my friend and I hope you will be back very soon.
Lots of love and hugs XXXXXX

Amanda said...

I hope to hear from you soon!
I will miss reading about your darling children. You can always bring a smile to my face:)
love and big hugs!

frogpondsrock said...

Hiya Kellan.. First things first here is a (((hug)))..

I read that post in my reader and I didn't think that it was offensive at all. Veronica (my daughter) has had some problems with a nasty troll as well.
I know that it is hard to do, my friend but you really should just ignore the stupid F*#*#ers...

Take care and hurry back xxxxx Kim

DYSFUNCTIONAL MOM said...

Take care, Kellan.

Pam said...

I'm sorry that happened to you. Enjoy the break- it does wonderful for the soul and really helps put life into perspective. I hope you find it to be a good thing.

Wonderful World of Weiners said...

You do what you need to do. It's tough to not take things personally especially when someone hurts your feelings.

Take some time and refresh and come back when you're ready. We'll be here lurking in the blogger wings.

Hallie :)

marybeth said...

{{{{Kellan}}}} Hope you are feeling better today---nasty posts are hurtful and just such a waste of space! My blog is small, and the upside of that is I rarely get anything negative posted. Hugs to you, my friend!
Mary Beth

kim-d said...

Hey you! I hope you know I am your friend...and I'm sorry you had a stupid troll. If I knew who it was, I'd slap 'em up 'side the head :)! I don't like it when people hurt other people's feelings; there's no excuse for that, except that someone who does that type of thing has deep, deep problems. And I say, SCREW 'EM! I hope you're back soon, cause I will be here.

Brenda said...

I believe some people are so disgusted with their lives that they seem to thrive on causing misery to others. That makes me feel so sad for them but sometimes you just have to look over them and keep on doing what you do so well.

Your writing is beautiful and funny Miz Kellan so please don't let one sour grape spoil the wine.

Rebecca said...

Ahhh that stinks!! I've really enjoyed your writing. I can't even think of what someone would have been offended by. I hope you are back with your awesome stories soon. :)

Eagles' Wings said...

I am so sorry that you have been hurt by some nasty comments. Obviously these people have problems. Unfortunately they bring their problems and invade other people's world.

There is really enough of nastiness everywhere, we need your stories to bring smiles and cheers.

Thanks for writing and do come back soon.

Nancy said...

When you come back, I'll be here.

I go with the 2 old schoolf of thought:

"if you can't say anything nice ...."

and

"you can't please everyone....."

Cheri @ Blog This Mom! said...

Hi Kellan,

I'm really ill, so I'm barely able to read or comment, but the title of this post on my Google Reader caught my eye. I've been on vacation and now I'm sick as a dog, so I didn't read the post you mention, but gosh, if you've been enjoying blogging before this negative person came along, don't let him/her stop you and all the love you receive. I'm sure I'd be just as hurt as you, and feel just like you right now. If that were the case, I think you'd encourage me to follow my heart. Don't let the haters win.

Love, Cheri

Dad said...

I will miss you, AND I will be here watching and reading when you return. Love, Dad

Kel said...

Take care Kellan and come back when you are ready...I will still be here. I know it can get frustrating at times, but try not to let those mean, spiteful people get the best of you...you are better than all of that.

Have a wonderful break from blogging!
~K

Amy said...

I am so sorry that you were hurt, Kellan. I don't understand why people feel so compelled to spread their own misery, but I pray that you know that their hurtful words are absolutely no reflection on you.
You are lovely...Remember that!:)

God Bless,
Amy:)

Mary said...

I don't get it Kellan, I read the post you are referring to (it's still in google reader.) I just don't understand how people have to be rude. Just close the page. What happened to "if you can't say anything nice, don't say anything at all?"

Don't let the scrooges get the best of you :)

the dragonfly said...

Oh, I'm sad too. I totally understand the need for a break, but I'm sad that some unkind people pushed you that far.

I'll be ready for more when you come back!

Angela said...

I will be waiting with my feed reader for your next post. Best wishes as you digest and process these feelings, they totally bite!

Dawn said...

You've got my sympathy even if you don't want it! I'm so sorry this happened to you. It sounds horrible and it makes me mad that someone would hurt you like that. I'll be looking forward to seeing you again after your blog break.

Jen said...

I think we all need a break from time to time. It makes me sad that you feel that way, and I do think that you know who your friends are. I don't believe that the people leaving mean, hurtful comments are anyone's friend, even though I understand that our friends can let us down sometimes. When someone is successful, as you are, there are bound to be critics, but just think of how many people take the time to read your stories and leave positive comments. You touch a lot of lives, Kellan. Don't forget that, and I'll be around when you are ready to return. HUGS.

The Fritz Facts said...

We need to take breaks, and sometimes someone making a mean comment to push us to that point.

We will be here. Without a doubt.

Monogram Queen said...

Awww Kellan I am so sorry someone hurt your feelings. I will miss you but please let me know when you get back ok?

That's one downfall of having a big readership, the haters. They're just jealous.

Rosemary Bogdan said...

Kellan! Please don't be gone long. We love your posts! They're so much fun to read. I do understand a need to take a break though. There are mean people out there. It's too bad. Wish I knew what she said so I could retaliate. (I love a good fight) God bless, friend. Well miss you. (Maybe you'll just need a few days? Hopefully?)

duchess said...

We'll be here & you will definitely be missed!

tammy said...

I'm sorry too. I hate when people are rude or mean to my friends. What is the point of that? How dare they have the audacity to think their opinion is so important, it's worth hurting others with it. Didn't their mamas teach them anything? Didn't they see Bambi? And if they're so proud of their comments, why do they almost always leave them anonymously? Sorry for the rant, but this kind of thing makes me so mad. I hate to see others hurt. I hope those people that left the rude comments read this post, and all the comments. You are one of my favorite bloggers. You are adorable and have a darling family. Your stories always make me laugh. Take the break you need, and know that we will be here when you get back!

Melissa said...

(((hugs))) Kellan! Take this time and spend it on you.

I'll bet you'll be back before we even have time to miss you.This blogging stuff is addictive.

Don't let the turkeys get you down.

Leah said...

I'm a friend!!!! HUGS

Courtney said...

Why is it that when people can hide behind a computer it magically gives them this power to say things they probably would have never said to your face? People need to get a grip and play nice, like it's that hard. Like you said click out of the site don't leave mean and hateful comments.

I hope your break doesn't last too long and I hope you know you will be missed!

Kaci said...

I'm a friend too! I'm so sorry Kellan! Hurry back!

Courtney said...

I just read the post in my reader and I'm not sure why that was so offensive, maybe they are ugly? Who knows. It's not like Alexis announced to everyone or was rude about it.

Kami said...

I read the post in my reader too and I can't even imagine how someone would find that offensive. There are all kinds in the world and it seems to me that the more popular and well liked a blogger is, the more hate they receive....my theory is that people get petty and jealous and to make themselves feel better, the spread hate.

It reminds me so much of high school in the small town I moved to in Grade 11.

I am very sad you feel like you have to take a break but completely understand. All that stuff gets to a person no matter how much you try not to let it.

I'll be here when you are ready to come back!

Take care Kellan and know that for every hater there are 20 of us who love you and your fabulous stories.

THopgood said...

I must have missed the post you're referring to. I can't believe ANYone could possibly find offense in anything you write. I honestly think someone is just trying to get a rise out of you. And now they've won.

dani said...

enjoy your time away, kellan:) hopefully time will heal your hurt and mend your frustration!!!
i will be thinking of you and looking forward to your return...
take care, my friend!!!
love,
dani

We will miss you while you get happy but completly understand the need to take a break. It is hard to ignore the stupid people in this world but do try and not let it get to ya!! I thought it was a freaking hilarious post! It made me smile :)

Tanja said...

I am so sad, you always make me laugh! Take a break and know that we're all waiting patiently for your return!

Just remember:

They hate because they envy.

They hate because their lives are empty.

They hate because they are unhappy.

They hate because you are a beacon of light and they are the dark.

They hate because they are left wanting, and can find nothing to fill the void.

They hate because they are sad, small people who can find joy in nothing else.

They hate because you shine.

In the words of the great Tyra Banks...."do not dull your shine for them",-

Jyl @ MommyGossip said...

I so agree with the comment right above this from tanja.

I love your positive posts and look forward to reading them again when you are back.

Stacie said...

it's a shame really. like you said if you don't like what you are reading, then why read and comment...just move on (not you, them) ugh.

I am sorry you have had YOUR feelings hurt. I hope that you enjoy your break and come back when you are feeling better!

Smoochiefrog said...

Well that's just rude! How dare they?

I'm here, whenever you come back!

Heather said...

It's important to take care of yourself. Once blogging stops being fun, it's time to stop. Hope to see you back soon.

Mighty Morphin' Mama said...

Aw honey, I am so sorry you are hurting. I think that the hurtful insults are, unfortunately,one of the ways you know that you are popular and liked in the blogging world. If you weren't popular, no one would bother being mean. Totally sucks.
I am thinking of you and pray your heart heals soon. This should be fun, especially for you. You are one of the most considerate, kindest bloggers I have come across.

Jonny's Mommy said...

Like I've said before, I write for a paper and whoo-- talk about some nasty, judgmental questions and annoying folks. And I have to see them in the store later in the week sometimes.

Yikes. That can be hard.

Hang in there and remember all the good comments.

You are a great writer.

Pregnantly Plump said...

The great thing about blogging is that it allows you to "meet" and become friends with people you've never met and might not have become friends with in person.
The bad thing is that the anonymity of the internet affords some people the freedom to be as mean and hateful as they want to be.
I hate that someone was so rude, but I do understand how some comments can just get under your skin.
I am like you, and if I don't agree with a post, I don't respond.
Hope to see you back soon!

Denise said...

Hi Kellan.
Please don't stay away too long. I'm so sorry you are hurt and down. I, like you, would never leave a nasty comment (or even a negative one) on someone's post. I honestly don't know what gets into folks these days. Please feel better soon. I'll miss you.
Denise

Kimmie said...

I'm sorry. Some people just suck and enjoy bringing others down.

I know that you enjoy sharing your stories and I hope you'll be back soon with tons more funny.

(((HUGS)))

Belle said...

I just don't get it...why would somebody be mean? They're just jealous, that's all..JEALOUS. Unhappy people always try to steal other people's bliss. You are an inspiration to SO many people...take a little time to rest but don't leave us hanging for long!! We're here for you...

katy said...

Enjoy your break. We have all figured out that there are people out there that can't read a story and take it for what its is...some people have to try to turn it around to what they think it should be. We will be waiting here when you return.

Mimi said...

Arg. How dare someone do that to you?

Stella said...

Kellan

I am so sorry that you had to deal with that. I've had some nasty comments left on my site as well and they are just hurtful and mean. I don't see why it's necessary.

I will be here when you come back.

Tanja, above, really said it best!!!

Southern Plate said...

I just now happened upon your blog and saw this post as the first one I have read of yours.
I know EXACTLY what you mean!! I work so hard on my blog and get such wonderful comments and encouragement, but every now and then I get a person who obviously gets their only joy out of life by being mean.

It may be one comment out of two hundred, but it really hits a nerve when they do that.

It is hard to overlook this, even when I delete the comments they do eat away at me. Like you, I would NEVER do such a thing to anyone! If I have a negative thought, I keep it to myself! I don't think I am so very important that I have a right to tear down others whom I know nothing about.

Anyway, that was my little "mean people" rant! :D
Here is a poem for ya that I think of whenever I get a comment like that:

Share a joke
Sing a song
Pass some special joy along

and if someone
should come your way
who doesn't share your joy today
To heck with 'em!

:D
You take care and hang in there! Don't let the meanies win!
I sincerely wish you all the best!!!
Christy

Steph said...

You will be missed Kellan.
I love your blog and you.
Hugs and loves....
Steph

Adrian said...

I'm with you. If I run across the rare post that I don't care for, I just move on. I figure it's someone else's blog and they have the right to write what they want just as I have the right to change the channel to someone else's blog. Once in a great while, I may post a respectful (and non-anonymous) comment but that's about it.

I've had a few trolls now and then on my blog, but I just delete them and don't mention them at all. I think that's what they want and I'm not going to buy into it.

Hope your time off is brief. I enjoy all your blogs and read them pretty much every day.

Courtney said...

Hey there, I actually JUST subscribed to your blog. I got to read a few GREAT posts.. and was LAUGHING HYSTERICALLY at the last one... is that the one you had some trouble with? Im sorry for you, but MOSTLY, for ME, because I was LOVING your posts! Figures, once I find something GREAT.. it vanishes. Hmmmm. Well, take your time to get positive again, and COME BACK FULL FORCE!!!! Love your blog!

Elaine A. said...

Now, now, you don't hate blogging Miss Kellan - you love it. You just had a bad day of it. We love you and we'll see you soon! ; )

Julie said...

Take how ever long you need, and I'll be here when you get back.

I'll Miss you!

Kelly said...

It's ok to take a break. You're friends will be here when you get back. Don't let the nastiness get you down for too long.

Me said...

Enjoy your break! Sometimes it's good to have a break from blogging! I'm the same as you and if I don't agree with something that's written I just close the page. If it really offends me, then I simply just don't go back. I don't ever see the need to leave a nasty comment.

You're in my bloglines so I'll look forward to when you come back!! :)

Trace :)

Tara said...

Have a nice break and enjoy your extra time. Do something nice for you. It's a shame people get so nasty and riled up. I don't get it sometimes.
I look forward to reading your stories again. I always leave your blog smiling.

Lisa said...

I read your blog and truly enjoy your stories! As a mom, I can so relate to so many of them and it lets me know that I am not alone in this land of motherhood, although mine are both in college now so my world has become different by the day! Dont let the jerks of the world get you down. I was always taught if you dont have anything nice to say, dont say anything at all....apparently they missed that memo! Hang in there and I will look forward to your return.
Take Care, Lisa

ValleyGirl said...

I always just delete the ugliness, too. You brighten the days of SO many people, Kellan, and I look forward to your return. A break every now and again is a good thing, though. Enjoy!

Megryansmom said...

I'm a friend or at least hope to be. I can't help but wonder, if a fairy dies when you don't leave a comment, how many die when one leaves an ugly comment? Enjoy your break and don't sweat the small stuff.

Cheryl said...

Screw the nasty ones and KEEP WRITING for the rest of us who so enjoy your tales, your experiences, your life with 4 kids. It's an outlet for you, and DON"T let someone else take that away from you.

Amanda said...

Well,I'll be here for when you return when you are ready! I hope you can return since I LOVE your posts and look forward to them daily! Take care and feel better!

JenniBeanV said...

People are jerks sometimes...I am sorry to hear that someone was rude to you! I will be here when you feel ready to blog anew!

Katrina said...

I've had some hurtful comments before too that are hard to forget. The post really is funny though. Can't wait to have you back!

Aleta said...

Geez.. Who comes to another person's home, walks in the door and starts insulting them? If someone writes a rude comment, then show them out. This is YOUR blog home and YOUR right to post what you think, feel, etc. and if you don't like a comment, by all means - delete it! Please don't allow someone's rude behavior to stop you from enjoying blogging!

Michelle said...

So sorry to hear, Kellen. I get it. I've been lucky in that too few people read my blog to leave negative comments :) I'm not sure how I'd deal with them.

But yup, if blogging doesn't make you happy, don't do it! This is for you not for someone else. I'll miss you, and it sounds like a whole lot of other people will, too. But selfishly, that means this is one less blog I have to read until you get back ;) That's five extra minutes of sleep, right?

joan said...

Hi Kellan,

I'm so sorry about this. I've been so busy lately I haven't had as much time to visit everyone but I totally agree with you. I never leave a negative comment. It's rude and bad manners. I hope you don't stay away too long because I'll miss you. Take care.

Kelsey said...

I know EXACTLY how you feel. When I get a hate comment/e-mail my whole body sinks and I wonder why I even do this and then I get an e-mail from a women whos daughter has cancer. She tells me that I have encouraged her and given her a reason to go on tonight. That is what makes it worth it for us, that is what makes it worth it.

Jason said...

I'm glad you reposted this. Life is too short--if you don't like a post, don't comment.

I teach seven year olds. I get it.

Live and let live. Don't seek drama and stir up the pot!

I hope you're back soon.

I would have felt the same way you're feeling right now if I were in your shoes.

The Boyds Family said...

Yeah, what they all said :)

And, I LOVE that your dad leaves such encouraging comments. Take care. ((HUGS))

Jenn @ Juggling Life said...

Blogging should make you happy--or at least energized. You know we'll be here when you get back.

tommie said...

To me....blogging should only bring good feelings! If they don't, do what what you need to do to make those comments happy!

forgetfulone said...

Try not to let one or two strangers affect your attitude toward blogging. Look at the rest of us! We love what you do!

But I understand if you need a break, and we will be waiting for your return. Hugs.

kaylee said...

/:( AWWWWWI will miss you!

Joanna said...

Not cool! So sorry you're hurting. I love your stories about your family. Your kids, your family - YOU aren't mean spirited nor do you write that way. For someone to take what you wrote had other motives going on.

You could use the Darkside to exposing trolls - just a thought. ;)

Major hugs, Kellan! Hope you don't stay away too long cuz I would miss you a lot.

Dad said...

Glad you reconsidered.

Tracy said...

Get happy soon Kellan, we'll miss you when you're gone.

And for the record, who cares about a few negative comments? Ignore them and move on. I'm read some of your comments before and you have plethora of people who love you, what's one person? Not everyone is going to like everything you say... who cares? YOUR blog.

bichonpawz said...

You are one of my most favorite blogs, Kellan and I will be patiently waiting to hear your wonderful stories. Take care of you!! Hugs, Jeanne

Sandra Carvalho said...

There are some people who seems to feel some kinda pleasure in hurting others feelings...It's so sad!...
I feel bad for you my friend cause you obviously DO NOT deserve it.
Just want you to know that I'll always be here for you and I'll wait as long as needed for your return on blogging.
Take care and don't let yourself be put down by some nasty people.
~Sandra~
xoxo

Karen said...

Kellan, I've been cutting way back on comments but have been reading when I can. Don't let this get you down. You know everyone has an opinion, and most shouldn't share them. You're the most kind-hearted blogger out there with not a mean intention at all. I love you.

Toni said...

This person is a jerk.

Whatever happened to "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all?"

See you when you return! Asshat!

Jacey said...

Kellan,
I've experienced 'icky' (as James would say) commenters at my other blog (livejournal, where I've been for going on 6 years) and it hurts. Even if it's stupid or uncalled for, it hurts.
Maybe this is a sign for you that you do need a break away from the blogging world, and it'll give you a chance to file away a whole bunch more fabulous stories about your family for us.
I hope that you don't take this persons comment to heart, because no mater how much it stings when you read something hurtful or hateful, in the end, it's only a reflection of themself, not of you.
So enjoy your break form the blgo world, and know that I, along with I'm sure every other person who reads your blog, will miss you and your entertaining, and thought provoking writing.
-Jacey

CY said...

Kellan,
I don't even know where is the offensive part. Only when I read the tiny fonts of your explanation that I knew. Hey..keep up your blog, we are reading all the way here in Bangkok, including Chris. But anyway, have a good break if you want but please, continue writing, OK? Cheers. CY.

Queen of My Domain said...

Can't wait for your return. ;)

common mom said...

I'll be checking every day until you get back online. I love reading your blog . . . and have never read anything offensive on here.

Impatiently waiting . . . ;-)

Kate said...

Well, I hope your hiatus from blogging isn't too long! I'll miss your stories, and while I don't often comment, I DO read them. That said, nasty comments hurt worse than many physical wounds, this I know well.

As a fanfiction writer, I've gotten my share of unimpressed, downright nasty reviews and it hurts because you put such effort into writing and entertaining people and instead of nice, constructive criticism -- you get nasties.

When I get a bad review, which I admit is few and far between, it puts a real damper on my writing for a while. But I"ve taken to going back and reads the 1,000 or so OTHER reviews I've accumulated over the years and it makes me feel better!

Take care and come back soon!

Kimmy said...

We'll be right here waiting for you Kellan. Take care!

Kimmy

Cheffie-Mom said...

Well, I'll be around when you get back to blogging. (: I enjoy reading your blog posts.

bren j. said...

Sheesh! Leave it to one or two people to ruin the fun of everybody else with their stupid comments! Argh!

At any rate, you post like every day and I don't know how you do it, so you deserve a break! Hope it's a good one and you can come back (SOON!!) with some fresh perspective. :)

See you then!

Janet said...

I'm leaving you in my blogroll, because you'll be back eventually. We will miss you, but I definitely understand. Could you do me a favor and look through my blog roll and make sure the nasty commenter isn't on it? I don't want to support nastiness.

Outnumbered2to1 said...

I'm sorry Kellan. I love your blog and always find it so enjoyable. I hope you hurry back but I understand your need to step away.

Rachel said...

Kellan,

I'm so sorry. so sorry darlin'.
Sending you hugs and love.
Sometimes people just have to spread vitriol and sometimes people don't know how to voice an opinion without being malicious.

I think you are fabulous, and I have told you before that I personally find you to be an inspiration.

Til we meet again ;-) XO

Kids Bible Crafts said...

I am not sure why people would leave hateful remarks b/c it is so easy to click off an article. But those people are out there. Delete the comment and then read 20 of the comments that make you smile and remember you are helping people out by writing this blog. We love you!! Don't let someone ruin what you have created!

Suzanne said...

If this person should not win, then you should come on back...otherwise...they sorta win and it looks like there isn't any comment folks here that thinks that poor ol nosey thing should win, so...just take a break and come back and write about your family and your loves and all that ... :)

angie said...

I'm sorry this happened. I have a very firm "if you don't have anything nice to say, don't say it" policy for myself....I hate hearing things like this happening. Feel better soon!

Sharon Brumfield said...

I am sorry you are having this mess.
I have been here to....hurting people hurt others. I know...blah, blah. They really should learn to just keep it to themselves or get some help.I say that in kindness to them. :)
I have deleted posts because someone got all messed up because of it...just because they miss understood what I was saying and then what the girls said about them afterwards.
Don't let it get you down.
We live in a troubled world....sometimes you get smacked and you were not even the one who caused the trouble in the first place.:)
I haven't been here in ages...and then today got an email from somebody wanting to feature my blog because I was on your blogroll. Funny how things work.
And just to let you know...I totally understood the flower post. I think we can all understand your girl....I have been there myself. And I am a GROWNUP! ;)
Enjoy your blogging break....take notes. :)

Girl, do I FEEL YA on this one. I've get about 2 hate mails/comments a week and they suck a duck. It really does put a bad taste on it, doesn't it? Oy.

Just wanted to say that after reading the previous post I just don't get how anyone could be offended. It's a funny story!

And leaving nasty comments - just so not cool!

I know you are re-posting now - I'm so pleased!

I'm sorry for the nasties . . . Don't give up on all of us yet. Take a break, but come back!

I'm glad you reposted it! Hey, with a following this big your bound to get a few wackos! I could only be so lucky to find a wacko among my 4 commentors!! :)

Oh Kellan. I'm so sorry that happened. I just never will understand people...why not just walk away if you don't like something?
Anyway, please don't walk away. I miss you.
You're my pal.

That is exactly why I have comment moderation. If the comment isn't nice, I just hit reject. Oh, that sounds harsh! :)
