the perfect neighbor.

Wanted, one editor.


Work for free.
Not care that what they are editing is not important.... at all.
Be able to laugh.
Not be mean, because my poor ego can't take any more.

Here is my latest foolish moment:
This comment was left on this post that I wrote WAY back in February, on the gypsy feet, another blog I co-author.

The totally justified jab...

And what I said...

Does anyone else tire of constant criticism coming from every direction?

And who decided that it's OK to be snippy with total strangers?

How about, "Hey person I don't even know! I read your post and enjoyed what you had to say, but I noticed that there was a spelling error. I thought I'd point it out so that you could fix it if you'd like. :)"

Thanks, honey. I needed that.

In the real world, you just have to whine about the people who don't cut their grass, because there's nothing you can do about it. Despite your complaints, their loud cars will continue to wake you up at all hours. You can't always choose your neighbors in the real world.

Welcome to the world of blogging. In this weird, little world, we have many neighbors, and it's really great because when you stop by to visit someone who drives you nuts, you can just kick them right out of your life. It's amazing!

People. This is, quite literally, where I live. It is, a little less literally, who I am.
There are weeds in my gutters... But chalk on my sidewalks.

That is all, thank you.

Oh my goodness!
Life is tough out here in the blogosphere.
I think the majority of us readers like your blog because of what you say (and show!), not how you spell it.
And honestly - the occasion spelling error is endearing!

<3 Grace.

Booo! I wish I'd read that freaking comment before hitting 'publish'. That really irks me. The pointless rudeness. I hate it.

Although I think being high actually heals a person. High on heels is healing. So you were right anyway. They just don't know what they're talking about.

And maybe 'holy moly' is spelled wrong because it could be 'holy mole' as in the Mexican food... it's all open to interpretation.
Don't let the ninny get you down.
You're the best.

Grace said...

I just responded to your comment on my blog when I realized I don't know if you'd ever see it, so I am copy/pasting!

HAHA - you're just so sweet to say that, because I'm sure Ethan is disgusted by the fact that I chose to post that.

But, you made me blush!
Thank you for your compliments, my dear, and don't be discouraged in any of your blogging endeavors!
I've been reading your blog for a while now and I love reading your thoughts and enjoying the photos of your beautiful [growing] family.

<3 Grace.

this is the first time i've commented on one of your posts. i've been a reader for a month or so... and i think you're delightful (and BEAUTIFUL!). i have to say that i really feel sorry for those people who are so stuck in that negative "nit-picky" frame of mind. can you imagine not being able to laugh at yourself or giggle with others over silly things? people need to stop with all the seriousness and lighten up! type on (misspelling whatever you'd like), we'll still be here reading!! :)

I love your blogs! You are such an inspiration! I look up to you as not only a great Mom but as a LDS woman! Nobody's perfect right...so misspelling things here and there is not going to keep you from your eternal potential!

Scott and Stacia said...

Megan- I love your blog, I love your thoughts. I am so inspired by you! You have a way of telling stories and experiences that I love. I am sorry that people are so unthoughtful (if that is even a word) I am amazed with how you keep up with more than one blog...how you do it is a mystery to me. Hang in there and keep blogging. I wish we lived closer. I would love it and I think our boys would hit it off! PS I love everyones comments..I love the smiles I receive even from your readers :)
