These pictures are from a few weeks ago, which was the last time I was home (insert homesick sighs here). I hiked down to this beach with my husband. In case you can tell from the pictures, I did not really know what I was in for when I got dressed. I love these shoes but they are not super comfortable and I wouldn’t have worn jeans had I fully appreciated the hike ahead. (And yes, I took a bottle of Pelegrino with me. Which is slightly ridiculous.)
In other news, in case you try to post a comment, I had to switch into moderation mode. I’ve met such a wonderful community of bloggers since I first started posting last year; I’ve really been lucky! I get so excited every time WordPress sends me a notification of a recent comment. Until yesterday that is. I hadn’t checked my email before I received three texts from friends letting me know of a snarky blog comment. Very few “real life” people know about my blog; I like to be reasonably anonymous so I’ve limited publication in my “real” life (e.g., it’s not on Facebook and most of my co-workers don’t know about it). Ironically, the snarky comment was made by one of the few real life people who is in the know (and it’s not the first gem they have shared).
I don’t really understand this concept, but I know many of you have already dealt with this. Why take the time to comment if you don’t have anything nice to say? I almost didn’t want to post today but that would be letting my insecurities win. Bottom line, I really do write this blog for me–although, like I said above, I really love all your comments and support! So why is it that one thoughtless comment puts doubt on my whole project? Any words of advice would be greatly appreciated: how do you deal with snarkiness?
