And I didn't even submit a post. A couple of months ago I didn't know people existed for the sole purpose of criticizing blogs. They do. In fairness, I had plenty to say about this blogger. This is his/her turn.
That Granny blogger who’s been cruising the Mummy blogosphere talking smack about Tearfree showed up in our very own comments section yesterday complete with authentic photo ID. (Scroll down to see)
Granny wants readers to check out her blogs -- Roc Rebel Granny and Is America Burning? – so they won’t judge her solely on the basis of the supremely dumb comments she made about Tearfree in all the Mother’s Day run-up hysteria.
In the interests of pursuing her academic research on emerging new media narratives, Tearfree went and had a look at Granny’s blogs and, frankly, she was not impressed. It was all George-Bush-is-a-genocidal-maniac and not even one mention of the country’s greatest hero, Jack Bauer. But, hey, if Bush bashing is your thing, you may like Granny’s blog and feel some cross-generational solidarity, so take a look and give her some traffic.
So far two comments (not here, on her/his blog), both of them about the template. They don't approve of purple, it's a sixties throwback, and it hurts their eyes. I am a sixties throwback of sorts.
The "supremely dumb" comment was to suggest that the blogger read more than one post (and both blogs) before she dismisses me out of hand. Obviously, he/she did.
For any of you who might not know, Jack Bauer is the "hero" of 24, a t.v. show I gave a couple of years of my time because I like Kiefer Sutherland (and his daddy). I have now given my first and last plug to Jack Bauer and "24". I've used a lot of words to describe the Commander-in-Chief but I've never directly accused him of genocide.
All this has nothing to do with anyone but me but these things have a way of taking on a life of their own. I'd rather put my own spin on it before that happens. Just ignore any snarky comments that turn up here. I made the decision to become involved and I'm responsible for the outcome.
I'll be back later on. No meltdowns from anyone today so far and tear free has provided a moment of comic relief. It's all good.
