If you have not yet read this post, you may want to do so before continuing to read this one ...otherwise you may furrow your nicely tweezed eyebrows out of confusion.
I received many comments on the aforementioned post that led me to this decision/promise. For the record (so you have it in writing)...
I, Angela from Becoming Me, will never stop "following" a blog unless...
1) A blog has not been updated for 3 months or has been canceled.
2) A blog changes in nature and prints hateful/mean-spirited posts
3) A blog makes fun of Jesus
Now, by following I mean I will keep my face on your side bar (If you really want it there). Unfortunately, I do not have any superhuman powers. That fact alone makes it impossible for me to write daily...even weekly...even monthly comments on every blog I follow.
I came to this decision after reading how many of you have had your feelings hurt when someone "dropped" your blog. I learned that even bloggers with larger readership numbers also feel a sting when someone stops following.
Please know that even if you stop following my blog...or choose to never follow my blog, that will not provoke me into taking my lovely mug off your list. I promise...cross my heart. Becoming Me is now devoted to guilt-free reading. Imagine a genuine smile here. If for any reason you click on the "stop following button,"I'm just going to assume (unless you send me an e-mail and tell me otherwise) that you dropped because your reading load got too heavy and someone had to go. I can live with that.
Lastly, I sincerely wish I could list myself as a reader on the blog of every person who reads Becoming Me...but...blogger has limits (However, you may see my picture listed as Mrs. N from my personal blog)...gotta love a good loop hole.
Please know, I feel a bit dorky for writing all this...but I could not get over how many of you identified with my emotional blog crisis of 08. However, I feel strangely healthier at the same time...and I will not be posting about this subject again. Yet another big smile.
