Mommy Blogger Confesses in Blog Post that Mommy Blogging is a Bunch of Fake, Happy-Clappy B.S. – Kind of Like Most Christian Adult Singleness Blogs

I first got wind of this story via SCCL Facebook group ((Link): Conversation about this topic at SCCL FB Group).

A link to a news article about the Mommy Blogger is much farther below. I wanted to say a few things before getting to the article.

The (ex?) mommy blogger in question, Josi Denise, says in one of her blog posts that a lot of mommy blogging is fake and too happy-clappy.

Denise’s critique of Mommy Blogging is reminiscent of my views on blogs or magazine articles by Christians pertaining to adult singleness, which you can read here:

I find that a lot of Christian-written material for adult singles is too sickeningly sweet.

There is an absence in most Christian-penned material for singles that honestly, really gets into and grapples with, how hard, painful, or disappointing it can be to be single into your 30s and older, when you had really expected or had hoped to marry.

Musical Interlude to Celebrate this Blog’s 1400th Post!

Musical Interlude to Celebrate this Blog’s 1400th Post!

This is post #1401. The previous post Word Press told me was #1400.

For the tiny number of folks who subscribe to this blog, you’re like, “Oh hell no, lady!! Some days, you publish up to 15, 20 posts!!! I’m tired of all the e-mail notifications showing up in my e-mail box, you wacko!!!”

I’m sorry about that.

But here below is Kool and the Gang singing “Celebration,” to celebrate 1400 posts of me laughing at evangelical Christianity’s weirdo, unhelpful, stupid teachings on marriage, dating, and gender roles!

And me ranting and spewing anger at Baptist, evangelical, and other Christian stupidity over marriage, having kids (or not having kids), teachings on dating… me posting about being single, being tired of the church scandals and Christian hypocrisy.

Me deleting most critical comments that tell me I’m bitter in the blog’s moderation queue area. Me telling creepy stalker guys to bug off and get off my blog and leave me alone on Twitter.

Good times, good times.

Here we go! CELEBRATE!!!! Kool and the Gang singing “Celebrate”

Blog Break – May 2014 – and List of This Blog’s Best or Most Relevant Posts

Blog Break – May 2014

I am going to be a lot busier in coming months than I have been, so I don’t think I will have as much time to devote to this blog.

I’m not sure if I will cease entirely blogging for months or years (or maybe forever), or if I may be able to post once every few weeks or months. I’m not sure what my schedule will permit.

Should I cease blogging entirely or take extended breaks, you can always wander through the blog’s numerous archives.

Word Press tells me I have over 1,000 posts now. You can use the archive or category search pull down menu on the right of the page, or try typing terms into the search box on the right, or use the blog’s tags and labels to look up categories of things I’ve blogged about.

Here are some of what I consider to be the blog’s most important, interesting, or pertinent posts
(I will probably overlook a few, there are so many I find highly relevant – as a matter of fact, I might come back to this post several hours later or tomorrow and add more links):

THIS BLOG’S MOST HELPFUL / INTERESTING / RELEVANT POSTS (IMO)

    – examples (links to news stories) of married couples, some who are Christians, who commit various sins and crimes

Please Don’t Use This Blog To Sell Merchandise or Services

I just updated this blog’s rules page with this information:

(Jan 30, 2014 update)

Please do not use my blog to sell merchandise or services.

I’ve had more and more people lately drop by, leaving really long comments about singleness and other issues this blog covers, but they end their remark by saying,

“And oh, hey, I sell gold watches! Check out my gold watches at SuperGreatWatches .com!!,” or, “My marriage was on the rocks until I got marital counseling from Dr-Jones-Groovy-Cool-School-of-Marriage-Counseling.net!”

One lady who did this seemed genuinely nice, so I let her post be published, and I allowed the link to her online store in her post to stay up, but I don’t appreciate people using my blog to sell widgets.

I Blog For Me, Myself, And I – Not For You. Not to get your approval.

I Blog For Me, Myself, And I – not for you. Not to get your approval.

Pertinent links:

—- I BLOG FOR ME, NOT YOU —–

I’ve already made note of this in other blog pages, but here it is again:
I use this blog for me.

I blog predominantly for me, not you.

I’m not interested in pleasing other people. I’m not looking to get a large, regular audience with this blog. If I do, okay. But that is not my goal.

I use this blog to vent publicly. I use it as a journal of sorts.

I’m not here to get other people’s approval.

I am not here to get other people’s input on how they think I should blog or express my views about anything.

This is why I don’t appreciate these condescending morons

    (note: I don’t mind so much the folks who express concern and sympathy for me who are polite. I am talking about the ones who chew me out and who are condescending)

, who stop by this blog and lecture me on how I may “come across” to other people, or,
(and these are some of the sorts of comments I get in the blog posts by visitors that I delete, and they later leave new posts complaining about being deleted, which I only skim the first sentence, then delete, and block them)…
I don’t appreciate these condescending morons …

    who say they think I should change my approach on the blog;

    that they will stop following this blog unless I change quality “X” about the blog or my behavior; e.g.,

    they object to the language I use on the blog lately (ie, cuss words); or,

    they make repeated nutty, crazy, unreasonable, rude demands and threats, such as they will un-follow the blog unless they get my real name (see (Link): this post for more on that); or,

    that they are not happy with my “attitude”

If you go back to the blog archives, for the first year or two I had this blog, I was “Little Miss Sunshine and Sweetness.”

If you don’t like the newer version of me and how I blog in 2013 / 2014, go back and read the blog posts from 2010, 2011.

My 2010 – 2011 posts are very genteel, G-rated, and relatively snark-free.

I’ve noticed since becoming more agnostic – oh hell, even when I was a full blown Christian – that many Christians are uncomfortable with snark, sarcasm, brashness, assertiveness, and people (especially WOMEN) who say it like it is (and I’ve admitted many a time to being a woman on this blog, so you know my gender).

Many Christians seem to be more comfortable with Christians (especially females) who never utter a cross, negative word about anything or anyone, and who are sweetness and light all the time about everything.

I didn’t understand that view, or like it, even when I was a complete Christian.

I’ve always had a biting sense of humor and a negative bent to my nature but had to hide it while a Christian because other Christians frown on it, or act uncomfortable about it.

Most Christians are codependent, by the way – that is why many of you Christians are ill at ease with sarcasm, bluntness, directness, assertiveness, and confrontation.

Some of my views on some topics have changed since I first started blogging with this blog in 2010.

People have a tendency to only read newer posts (from 2013 / 2014), or to react to only the ones that they find most offensive.

Once more, let this fact sink in:
I am not blogging for YOU.

I am primarily blogging FOR ME.

I figure if preachers get wind of some of the blog posts here and change their habits from being marriage-centric as a result of seeing my views, that’s great.

If marriage obsessed preachers don’t see the blog at all, or do and yet remain unchanged, oh well, c’est la vie.

But again, I blog primarily FOR ME.

You are only getting a SLICE of my life, views, and my personality on THIS PARTICULAR blog.

This Blog Featured on Blog Lovin’

I just found out yesterday that this blog is featured on something called “Blog Lovin.”

What in the hey is Blog Lovin? I never signed up for Blog Lovin or submitted my blog to their site.

Does it have bots that just search the web to index blogs automatically?

(Link): Christian Pundit Blog on Blog Lovin

That site says this blog has one follower on that site (thank you to whomever that is).

This Blog Lovin’ thing is weird.

I’ve never heard of that site before.

When I turned the options for avatars on for this blog, it automatically assigned me this blue-colored face avatar:

That avatar either makes me look like…

1) I’m worried / nervous;

2) Constipated (need more fiber in my diet); or

3) Like I’m holding my breath

What a goofy avatar. It wouldn’t be my first choice if I had a choice. No, I don’t feel like customizing it. I’m stuck looking at the stupid thing.
