Devri and I are okay. We are working things out. And I have deleted the old posts. I am leaving this one up (as long as this one is okay--- Devri...?) Because this has been a humbling experience for me. And I know that there has been a not so pleasant feeling among the hair bloggers for a while and I hope that everyone reads this and we all just start being nice to each other and just having a good time. And NOT thinking what a person says is a personal attack. Both Devri and I did that to each other. A double wammy! But I wanted to update that she has contacted blogger about finding her old blog. I don't know how that works, but hopefully they find it. If not I think she will start up a new one after a break. Devri-- thank you for working things out with me.
Hair blogging went personal today… And personally I thought it sucked. My email box has been bombarded and out of control all day. I have had comments left on my Facebook about this blog since I locked my comments up. I got yelled at by my husband about how stupid it was for me to quit something I love. And it wasn’t that joking what a dorky hobby yelling I usually get from him. He gave some good points and was really (sincerely) upset that I would let myself be effected by one person like this.
And I got an email among all the ones that said how much I was loved it was the one I needed to hear. I am not saying who it is from but it read:
I have been reading your blog from an outside look. WOW! It takes all kinds in the world to have drama and whoa Drama is at its fullest Fury! Step back and look at this situation and tell me if you like yourself in the morning. Act like a woman of elegance and not anything else.
Devri~~ I am sorry. I have sent you an email and I know it may come across as mean, but I want us to talk and fix things. Because I didn’t mean anything mean by my review of your blog. The crazy thing about blogging, emailing, texting… whatever form of communicating is used if it is not face to face you can’t really tell how the other person is trying to come across. I think that is what happened with my review… and I am sure as hell hoping that is what happened with your comment. I wrote you in the email about that. But it’s personal between you and me.
It breaks my heart that you deleted your blog. It broke my heart when people started saying mean things in my comments to keep me blogging. That has never been what blogging is about to me. That was why I turned off the comments. I don’t want people to be mean to you. I didn’t expect that or ask for that. And because that happened I am very sorry.
I am hoping you still have your blog out there and that you just changed the address and pulled one over on us. You had a lot of followers and more important a lot of good memories with your girls. If you have it out there please let us know. Also if you really did delete it will you please start back up a new blog. I have no problem starting a petition for your return.
Also to the other hair bloggers out there--- Don’t quit. Don’t let the drama that happened with the hair police situation stop anyone. It’s cool! We are all good here. The hair hair blogger (where ever she is) never intended her blog to seem in any way like it was going to be mean. When I first came across the site I took it that she was going to sum things up from her perspective. I think a few of us hadn’t seen a new hair blog pop up in a few days (ha ha) and we found this one funny. Me especially, I am so guilty of bringing down the heat from this drama. And it wasn’t like that guys. She wasn’t holding any kind of competition for best or worst. I really believe she was just hair blogging about Hair Blogs. I don’t know for sure she was ran out of town before we could find out… but I bet she was going to post a few of her own and be just like you and I. Blogging about hair and having fun with her talents.
Okay--- Lets ALL stop feeling sorry for ourselves. Lets do what we like to do and share fun idea’s about hair. And more important lets make memories with our daughters. Every single beautiful perfect one out there. I think that is why our genre of blogging is so popular. It is a creative way to build a stronger relationship with our daughters. And don’t worry if you have one follower or one hundred followers. Aren’t you having a good time doing this? Isn’t it fun to put your daughter on the computer and show her to herself. And ((**TIP)) the more you do it don’t you find that your daughter will sit still for a long time while you experiment on her hair because she has that end results to look forward too.
One more thing--- I don’t care if you steal my hair do’s and call them your own. I get a little bothered when it is obvious, but it’s cool with me. Because I was always REALLY good at math, I am serious and totally not being sarcastic on this one. After the teachers would get done with there explanation I always got bombarded by classmates for “MY” explanation. For a lot of students I just made more sense. But for another half they thought I was an oaf because my explanations made no sense what-so-ever. It is a good thing we have so many of us around for all the different ways of learning. A few days ago I posted a video way of TUT(ing) and people responded negative. They totally have hated it for the most part. So if someone else would like to take on re explaining it I think that would help a lot of confused people. Just kidding I am going to redo it, but guys for reals lets try and give credit where it is do, lets not allow ourselves to feel offended when we don’t get that acknowledgement.
Another idea popped in my mind. I don’t know if I am entitled to making new rules. I don’t actually know if there are rules anywhere to this blogging thing, but “NEW RULE” If you are out of idea’s, or if you have hit a creative rut… go ahead and feature each others hair do’s while you work your way out of the rut.
