9.9 - Nice Outfit - GOMI

Shirt: Kohl's (Juniors. They had a similar one but not as soft in the Women's section)
Pants: VS
Shoes: Macy's
Necklace: Kohl's

I was extremely proud of this outfit. I didn't go with black pants but with gray... Yay #1.  Then I didn't go with black shoes and went with purple ones... Yay #2.  The color of the shoes was more similar to the shirt but they seem to photograph differently. I found the shirt on Kohl's website to see how they tied the belt. I just copied.
I was all happy until around 10am when I realized a website complaining about my blog was the sending tons of hits to it.

I was 100% addicted to reading all of the comments. It took up a good portion of my work day. So many comments for just one post. I couldn't believe it. It was a big waste to my work day. There was no need to have to read them all or reply to some but I just couldn't help it.  I also had to tell a lot of my friends about it. I'm not sure if most people would advertise what people say complaining about their blog but I guess I'm not most people.  I even told some friends and learned they already found out about it through the grape vine. Now I'm posting about it on here. Oh boy.  One of the blogs mentioned above wrote a rebuttal post but then deleted it. She bashed each and every person who left a negative comment about her. That is the craziest reaction I ever heard of.   Do you check your blog stats to know if anyone ever links to your blog?  Have you ever been linked to because people disliked your blog? My husband said that if he had a blog that was mentioned on a site like GOMI, that he would quit blogging. Throughout the day as I told people about GOMI linking to me, almost everyone asked what Dave thought of it.  I was shocked at how much

Well after reading all the comments, I was second guessing if I liked my outfit or not. :(
Poly slept in my leg nest and I just had to sleep in a bit because of it.
On my way home from work I picked up Pizza Hut and I ate my entire personal pan pizza while stuck in traffic.  There was construction and tons of cars were stopped for a long period of time and I really wished I knew about it.  Oh to top it off, I passed up Pizza Hut so had to sit in some traffic first then turn around, get the pizza, and do it all over again.


  1. Wow, I just had to go check out that website too. Good for you for commenting and defending yourself! And for the record- there can never be too many pictures of Poly :)

  2. When you first e-mailed me about this, I was flabbergasted at how awful some of these people are, and thought, "That site is the meanest idea, ever." I'm glad you got some page hits out of it, at least, and that those folks had to eat a little crow upon hearing from the actual creator of Scrap and Run.

  3. I did think the site was the meanest ever. I like how they commented about getting spam comments and I have never even gotten spam comments. I got so many page hits that now my graphs of hits are all skewed. My old max hits in one day was 286 but usually I hovered around 100 (in the spring it was 150) but I got 770 in one day and 630 the next day. I did not get any new followers. I did loose 1 GFC follower and 2 google reader followers in the past 2 weeks though.

  4. I have never heard of that site - wow. It's so mean. I don't like that.

    As a newer reader I like your site and you know what, I'm a cat person, I have two cats of my own and I like your cat pictures. And I like your style.

  5. You should post pictures of your cats! 2 years ago I wasn't even a cat person. If you had dogs, you could post pictures of them too.

    I thank you for your kind words. I was debating mentioning GOMI but I post about my day and my day was CONSUMED with that site so I thought I'd mention it.

  6. Love your blog. Some people have nothing better to do than bash others.

    Keep up the good work, and give Poly some kisses. :)
