When I dug deep into the blackness and confessed my flaws yesterday, I never expected the reaction that I got. I expected for people to read that post and think about how much of a deviation it is from what I show on this blog and be….disappointed? No, that’s not the word. I don’t know what word I’m looking for. But either way, I was surprised at what I got.
And I cannot tell you all how touched I am. No, seriously, y’all made me cry. Like big, fat Hallmark-commercial tears when it’s that time of the month and you’ve just watched the episode of Grey’s Anatomy where Denny dies*. The sweet things, the supportive things, the “I feel that way too” things…..was just overwhelming. And it makes me sad that so many people feel that way; I wouldn’t wish this on my worst enemy. Why does it have to be this way? What has happened in this world that we have to feel this way? I grew up around mean, judgmental people. Sometimes I think it’s an epidemic of Pennsylvania. Why can’t I have people like you all in my daily “real” life, why do you have to be scattered around the country?
I got more comments on my Flawed post than on my HNT. Some people might see that as a complaint. No no, I see that as amazing and touching and meaningful. I can’t even tell you how much I love you guys.
And then today I get this email from the DivineCaroline.com site – somebody, I don’t know who, nominated my blog for this award. Whoever did that…..thank you. That’s pretty awesome. I have zero expectations of winning, just going by the number of sites nominated and the winners of last year (not sex blogs), but I don’t really care. That’s not what it’s about here. Somebody likes this blog of mine, and that’s a pretty cool thing in my world.
There’s only 2 days left to enter to win an NJOY PURE WAND from me and edenfantasys.com. I’m really excited to give away one of these and I hope to be able to give one away again in the future. It’s obvious a lot of people are lusting for this toy!!
