This post was in my Google Reader tonight.
I know you don't like having to vote. But there are many things I do every day that I really don't like to do either. And, to be fair, I have repeatedly asked you to only vote if you think I am worthy. Some of you read and don't vote. You must not think I am as great as I think I am.
When I started blogging, I turned to TopMommyBlogs.com as a resource for other blogs. The top blogs, I read, as in past tense. Religiously. It was a good jumping off point. There are plethora of blogs to be read at TMB. TMB remains a security blanket and validates my blog -- you don't want to write your comment ON THE BLOG, but you will click. And, I know you are reading it.
Last week, I realized there are these cliques of female bloggers out there. Bully bloggers. Female bloggers that bully other bloggers through chat rooms... and now this post comes out.
Dang. They are as bad as the snots in middle school. It is like someone beating you in a race, and then talking smack about how bad you suck, while trying to paint it as though they are trying to help you with this 'advice' through their own blog post.
The fact that I solicite votes through TMB.com, apparently, makes me blogger scum.
Well, I am not. And, either is my blogger friend, Lori P., who is also apparently a blogging whore. I am merely trying to get my blog recognized and read. Duh.
If voting blogs can increase someone's visibility, why should another blogger care about a false "popularity" of another blogger? Mind your own damn business (MYODB). If you don't feel threatened by another blogger's exposure, then really... why do you care? You shouldn't.
Shame on you.
( You may find it ironic that I don't have my little brown bar link to request your vote on this post. Don't. Brown bar isn't there because I am on my iPad, not my laptop. Image is on my laptop. Coincidence? Hmmmm... I don't think so. You can still vote for me at TMB.com by clicking that brown box/button up on the left! Again, only if I am worthy. )
