A New Year and A Bad Pun


Yesterday this blog was "teetering" on the brink of
destruction!

I have decided to stick around for a while
but I'll warn you ...

I am blazing my own trail
I don't care if I never reach 1,000 followers
I play music because I love it

If you choose to visit ...
I promise to entertain and not mimic
I promise to never ask you to vote for me to be on some television show
I promise there will be corny jokes and bad puns
I promise there will be lousy photos ~ more often than not
I promise that Thelma will lay an egg from time to time
and I will too

And most importantly ...
Bentley will still be my sidekick!

Right Bentley?

Love,
Susan and Bentley
xxoo

  2. I'm not sure exactly what has happened to upset you in bloggyland - - - but I am sorry that careless or unthinking, or even mean spirited people seem to have robbed you of your bloggy joy.

    Once I came across a blog that had taken an ENTIRE post, pictures and all, directly from my blog to hers. I left a comment asking her to please take it down and if she wanted to refer people to it she could talk about it and put a link on her blog to that post on mine. She quickly did exactly that - - - and the "crisis" was averted.

    I think your blog is great - - - you already have over 300 followers, which is nigh onto miraculous in just one short year - - - and Bentley is just adorable too.

    I say, don't let anyone steal your bloggy joy! You just keep being the kind of blogger you wish all others were.

  3. PS - - - the plate in your header, do you know what pattern that is? I have quite a few pieces of "Mildred" and your plate is oh so similar, but not quite "Mildred." Amazing how close it is without quite being the same!

  4. Yeah! I really enjoy your blog, so happy you're doing it your way! I feel the same about reaching 1000's of users, and posting about what I like and enjoy at the moment! So happy to hear that Bentley has agreed to stick by your side! My cockapoo Duke is always with me!

  6. You go girl!! I'm with you. Keep on doing what makes YOU happy. I didn't start blogging as a competition either. So let's just keep on keeping on and enjoy what we do.

    Have a great week! Glad you're staying!!!

  7. Your music isn't going to bother me, because I keep my computer on mute. Play away!

  8. Oh cute post and the teacups are a perfect illustration for the teetering theme. Please do continue on. Let's just post as and when and how we want, right? That's my idea for blogging, to have fun with it. I enjoy hearing about you and Bentley.

  9. Susan, you are clearly upset and I am not entirely sure what all of this is about...but sometimes coincidences happen and companies offer several people simultaneously to host promotions(I was asked to do one for overstock, and know that several others were too), but my point is, you are letting this get the better of you and it is coming across like this is going to make or break you. Which it will not. You'll be alright, just remember there are lots of fish(or bloggers) in the sea and there is room enough for all of us...and we are all interested in similar stuff, so there will be similar posts. BTW, you are 1 in 3 peeps I know with the same giveaway, and I happily entered them all because I want a sign! Hope your day gets better:)

  15. Those cups look pretty sturdy to me! So glad you'll still be here for inspiration.

  16. Stinky rabbits! I didn't finish my thought before my thoughtless pinky hit enter! I meant to draw the correlation between that cute picture and how they look strong and you are strong too. Now I've blown it. Well, does the intent still count? :)

  18. I say , You go girl- well - girl and dog! Blogging has become very competitive- I since stopped caring about that ( well trying). Good thing as my numbers never grow. But I too will keep doing what I am doing -my way.
    thanks for the inspiration...

  20. Blogging is supposed to be fun. If I'm not enjoying it or having fun, then I won't do it anymore. Misunderstandings and differences of opinions will happen but I can't say I have found one single person that wanted to intentionally hurt anyone out here.

    Let us all be positive and stop the negativity. The good Lord knows there is enough of it in the world already. There are also so many that have far worse problems than us.

    So I hope you and Bentley find the joy in blogging again, because I love it!!
