really.

I lost a few blog & Twitter followers right after I posted my nerd pictures yesterday! Drama! Do you know how much work it is to figure out how to UNfollow a blog?

I think it's more than four clicks. I'm a lot nerdier than I thought.

Those were the type of followers I didn't want anyway - just like the people I wrote about in that post ... irony, irony. So I'm happy we got them filtered out. Thank you to all of you who left the nice comments. To make myself feel better:

There, now I feel loved. And cute. Which is all a girl needs.


Side note: I'm taking a break from the daily posts for a day or so. I've been turning these subjects into paperback novels lately!

  1. Wow, do you really think you lost followers because of that post?? That is ridiculous! I loved it because I could totally relate to you--I ended up transferring school systems my freshman year of high school. As an educator, I feel for the shy little girl in that situation. I cannot imagine putting a student through that torture! But you're super-cute now and have the most adorable little boy! Good for you for putting it all out there!!!!

  3. People are dumb.. I cant believe because of that post you lost followers.. I personally check your blog a bunch to see if you've posted anything new because I love reading what you have to say and you are very relate able to me. Keep up the blogging :)

  4. I also found your "nerdiness" post touching and inspirational! Like Meg, I transferred schools (for me it was in 8th grade) because of cruel kids and many a lunch hour spent wandering between the library and the washroom, wondering why it was so unthinkable for my classmates to invite me to hang out and play with them; never quite understanding what was so wrong with me... of course now I understand that it wasn't really about me or my personality or even my looks, but back then it was not so easy to see!

    You definitely deserve to feel loved. You are a lovely person! ;) Keep up the awesome work, both as a blogger and an obviously wonderful mommy! <3

  5. Are you serious?! How insane can they be? I think everyone should be able to relate, to some degree, to feeling less then adequate at least some time in their lives. And if they haven't yet, it's coming! I'm glad we went through that phase when we were young, now it's over and we get to live beautiful, humble lives!

  6. That's crazy! Anyone who acts like they did not have awkward moments in their childhood/adolescence is just lying to himself. Love reading your blog & all your pics of Carter :)

  10. Wow, I'm quite shocked! But just as you said, it's good you got rid of them!!!

  11. I suffered similar burning faced episodes all the time at school. I hated standing in front of the class and I still struggle if I have to introduce myself in a group situation in my adult life! I even get anxious walking into a new toddler group with my son! There are few feelings I dread more than that of burning red cheeks. It makes standing there all the more painful, knowing everyone can see your true feelings when you're trying desperately to portray the same level of confidence as the next person!
    You are right though, these experiences definitely mould us into better people and I feel I have grown into a far more compassionate person as a result.
    Anyway, I bet your old teacher couldn't write a blog and get as many subscribers as you!

  13. I love your blog! I just came across it today and read quite a few entries while my son was napping. He is 14 months old so I like to see whats Carter is up to so I can be prepared as I get further down the road of toddlerhood :) Oh, and I voted for your blog also.

  14. @Jessica Cagle thanks jessica and thanks for voting! it's definitely fun to follow babies a couple months ahead so you can get an idea what they should be doing, what to teach, stuff like that :) i'm happy carter can do a little of that for you guys!

  15. @Glitterbug i'm a little uncomfortable at the toddler groups too, but i'm starting to care less and less about what they think of me and just playing with carter while we're there... if we happen to run into someone who wants to be friends, it'll be a bonus. i just tell myself it's good for carter to get out of the house & see kids his age
    haha about my old teacher! i wonder if she's on facebook ...

  16. @leah.brown04 seriously! i'm thinking they were picture-lookers & not blog readers. which meant they liked looking at pretty things & not ugly ones? i'm just guessing

  19. @Jennifer you're right, it's a normal part of growing up to have things like this happen!

  20. @JBirch22 i can only imagine being a new kid! it's amazing how hard it is for kids to be kind just because they don't want to catch any grief from the others.

  21. @mandeeking746 thanks mandee! follower numbers shouldn't really matter, it just surprised me to see that ppl were so turned off. thank you for reading :)

  22. @Rachel thank you! my husband said that post was kinda like a cinderella story. i don't think i'd go as far as to say that, but it definitely showed that ppl change over time

  23. @Meg Smith thanks meg! wow it must be kinda cool to see students from an educator's point of view, especially since you can relate

  24. I think everyone has a weird dorky stage. If someone wants to not follow you for owning yours then let them. you don't need them anyhow. Meanwhile the rest of us dorks <3 you. :)
