I had so much fun McLinkin' it up last week, that I thought I'd give it another go 'round this week, too. Plus, I don't have another post ready at this time. And actually this week's question comes at an interesting time as I've been pretty darn tempted to give up blogging lately due to some blogs that aren't truthful. So, before I get into that, here's the question that was posed this week:
What is your Pet Peeve?
First let's start with an IRL pet peeve of mine. This totally chaps me every time time I see it...people who throw cigarette butts out their car windows. UGH--I hate that! Keep your nasty habit to yourself and in your own personal space and don't go junkin' up mine (and the rest of the world's) with your disgusting, stinky, grossness. Plus, it's not safe...you could start fires. So, if you are a smoker and are reading this...keep your stink to yourself. Thankyouverymuch.
I have other IRL pet peeves, but that one is always at the top of my list.
Now, onto my virtual pet peeve. The people who blog and are honest. I'm not talking about those crazies out there who blog with blatant lies. Those people are usually caught pretty quickly and called out on it. I'm talking about the ones who don't reveal the whole truth or are very vague about things or really over exaggerate things. In other words, these people are NOT keepin' it real. Listen...we all have made mistakes in our lives, none of us are perfect moms, etc. Just be real about it. I think it all ties back into that "perfectness" that Dawns Diversions blogged about a while ago. Trying to portray that you live (or have always lived) the perfect life. No one does. So let's just be who we are...the real who we are. There's nothing worse than meeting a fellow blogger IRL or hearing a story or something about another blogger, and you end up saying, "Huh? Really? That's not what he/she said and/or acted like on their blog."
So, let's keep the blog-o-sphere a peaceful, truthful place where when we read blogs we know that what we're reading is right on. And I promise that this is going to be the last time I write about this (I hope).
Love ya all! And don't throw your cigs out of the car window.
