Am I living in a Hitchcock Movie

I wonder this so many times while cruising through the blogosphere. I guess I am blessed, lucky, per chance maybe that I have a great network of readers. Bloggers that truly have great content. I made a conscious decision the other day to “weed out” some true bullshit. Stuff that I was following for the sake of following but did not enjoy the content.I am finding more like that everyday.

I kept my very special reads….who lately I have failed to comment….but at least I see them on Facebook so at least I can keep in touch that way, but I had other reads that were quite frankly airing on the side of feeling chagrin. You know that feeling….the one where it is like….SHEESH, are we going to beat that horse again. Or are we past that yet? I mean I truly feel like I am in an Alfred Hitchcock twist of the Twilight Zone because my bloggers that I did enjoy are now part of the disease infested bloggers that I did not enjoy. The blase ones who think they are superior and really they are no different, they just have a larger bank account and bigger PR backing. The ones who just want to wreak of misery and bullshit about “OMG, Girl, did you see what she wrote on her blog?” and the “Unt uh, no she didn’t…I am so with her…I am so sick of that.”

When did blogs turn into high school?

A bunch of women. Grown. Child rearing. Child bearing. Grandmotherly. Women. Who act like a bunch of juvenile brats? I guess like I said I was stuck in Smallville reading about how other mom’s were struggling to maintain a level of sane like I was everyday. Frustrated about what to cook because frankly the day sucked and Pizza Hut, Papa Johns, Dominos, heck Taco Bell seemed more tantalizing than cooking. I was in Smallville enjoying the simple things of being a mom, the complex, the ordinary, the extraordinary, the fun, the sorrow, the laughs!! So when the hell did blogs turn into a “Well I am hanging with the cool chick and we are going to do this and take a stand” and when did women, who all share the same passions turn into enemies. Not even frenemies…well some, but not all. Was I in the twilight zone?

I guess this was my reason for not blogging either, other than my desire to read. To reconnect with my family and get through this hump of school and get back into a grind, a groove, the routine of life with my school aged son and now toddler twins!

I’m really curious if anyone knows what the deal is with blogs, with the bloggers? What happened to leaving well enough alone?

  1. Good question! I don't know how to answer that. I had to chuckle about the what to cook and then Pizza Hut because lately that has been exactly how I have been feeling about supper. LOL

  2. hmmm…not really sure about this. but your title freaked me out a little because i just finished reading sandra brown's newest book and it had a kinda creepy story line about hitchcock movies. i am REALLY glad you are not talking about that kind of hitchcockiness!

  3. I am thinking its the back to school thing with everyones piss poor attitudes or just the fact that the economy really blows too so everyone is trying to make ends meet. I know we are…sucks like no tomorrow.

  4. I stay out of the mommy blogging wars as much as possible. Also, since I'm not yet into PR waters, I'm not really a target in anyway.

    I've been around long enough (and you are about my age, give or take 5 years I would guess) to know that some…many…women act like this no matter their age. I don't know what it is or why. It can be blogging, PTA, playdate moms, etc and some of them cannot STFU and quit being the bitch that stirs the pot.

  5. I try to just have fun with my blog, though I know at times it can be revealing but that's just who I am. I definitely am not a petty person and left high school 20 years ago!

    It's a good idea to just go through the blogs you follow once in a while to remind yourself of why you decided to follow them in the first place. I know, if you're like me, the list keeps growing as we continue to connect with new bloggers all the time but it's still good to do some house cleaning once in a while!

    Hope I don't make the dustpan, LOL!

  6. That's all too much to dwell upon. They (the women and the blogs they write) are not worth the time if there are constant battles for superiority or laced with middle school gossip. Read what you want to read and write what you want to write – those of us who do, will feel better even if the PRs don't make us look better. 🙂

  7. i think that twitter is the cause of a lot of unrest amongst bloggers. people reading into tweets and stuff. words on a screen are one dimensional, no vocal intonation. it's hard to know if someone is being sarcastic or truthful.
    well you know i could go on and on. because you know how i feel about this subject.

  8. There is no facet of your life, my darling baby bubby bunker boo, in which high school dramatic bullshit will not pop up and drive you crazy. No matter what GOOD things we find, there is always some asshat waiting in the wings to pop out and throw a bucket of SURPRISE pig’s blood.
    You just have to repeatedly remind yourself that their drama is because they have issues and need to distract themselves. And never follow people just to be diplomatic.
    Integrity, jealousy… These things are popping up a lot in this blogosphere lately. It’s an interesting (and timely) happening, I think.

    How can we profess to be trying to teach our children, and raise them right… when everyone is squabbling and bickering?
    It makes people want to take a step back, when they whole point originally was to be engaging and find friendship. A common ground.

    You’re not wrong.
