So, as you can see I have made a few changes around here. Change is good. Making changes renews my love for my blog and inspires me to want to use it more. Now I actually want to write again. All because I have somewhere pretty to put it.
Last night I was tweeting about how happy I was with how my blog banner turned out, and how I was excited about all the changes I was making around here.
Then I woke up to this tweet:
@theatomicmommy So should those of us who donated to you assume this is where our money went?
Whoa. I mean, seriously? Just because I get a new banner for my blog I have somehow tricked people into giving me money just so I can trick out my silly little blog? Um, no. So, I responded in an extended tweet:
To those it may concern (even though it doesn't concern anyone but me) I spent no money in changing my blog. My friend "donated" a banner to me, because I guess she likes me. I do know how to do simple tweaks and changes to everything else myself. It is Typepad, so they make that pretty easy.
As for @oakhollowmom, I appreciate the donations that I received from all the amazing people who cared enough to do so. That money went to my utility bill and other necessities. That money is gone, and Travis has since then found a job. No, he doesnt make much, but it helps. As for where I spend my money is none of your concern. Just because I changed my blog doesn't mean I spent money on it, but it would've been totally okay if I had. There's no need for your snark this morning, so go have a cup of coffee and chill out.
The response I received from this was:
@theatomicmommy Thanks for clarifying, but I had to ask. I'm glad you have a friend who can help you out with the blog stuff.
You had to ask? Really? Um, no you didn't. Why? Because it's rude, and frankly it's none of your business. I spent a whopping $6 on the images to make my banner with, but if I would have wanted to spend a billion trillion dollars and buy the whole damn Microsoft company I would have, and you have no right to question that or anything else I do.
Your rude comments were just that, rude and uncalled for, and yes you pissed me off. So what do I do? I blog about it. Why? I had to. You have to ask rude/snarky questions and I have to blog about it. It must be some sort of rude mean internet continuum or something.
(I closed comments. This isn't intended to start an argument. This is intended for me to release some stress. You wanna chat? Twitter is the answer.)
