I’ve got to say that I’m feeling a little bit blue this week . . . for several reasons.
First, I found out mid week that even though we led the contest the first couple of weeks, the monster blog Freshome (with over 1 million Facebook followers) is now in first place. I’m afraid that David is not going to beat Goliath this time around.
Next, while preparing for future Friday Favorites posts, I received snippy emails from two bloggers. One said “I have to say I don’t really understand your blog. Everything is ‘coming soon’.” Seriously? I know I’m behind (who isn’t?) but was there a reason to be so petty? Another sounded quite perturbed that I would even suggest that I admired and wanted to feature one of her images.
(A side note: I have to admit though that most people are extremely gracious, kind, and appreciative as I always, always am when someone offers to show my work to their audiences!)
Third, our clothes dryer died on Thursday. Fortunately, my sweet husband offered to take two loads of wet clothes to the laundromat to dry them and we bought the extended service plan. Fingers crossed, the repair will cost us nothing but time and inconvenience.
Fourth and most important reason: I just like the color blue! Do you?
P.S. Sorry to be such a downer.
