What I’ve learned from blogging. Thanks to Becky, I learned that I’m a selfish c*nt and my readers are hillbilly alcoholic mothers. Well then, Becky, I guess I’m doing something right!

blogging1July 2nd will be my 3 year “blogoversary” and I can’t believe it’s been that long. It’s probably the stress of our upcoming move in 2 weeks but I’ve been feeling burned out and thought seriously about pulling the plug a few times. Not just 0n this blog but with writing all together.

But fuck that. I love you people too much. And I sincerely thank you for reading all of my rambling. Hopefully this writing funk will pass soon. Plus I have some guest bloggers coming up which will help me take a little time off.

There’s still an invitation to guest post if you’d like. Any topic, blog or no blog. Email me at elle.mommyhood@gmail.com

Okay, let’s see what I’ve learned since I started blogging.

1. No matter what you write, people will be assholes. It would be nice if they followed Honest Mom’s advice. But they usually don’t.

2. I will never be a popular blogger. But considering the pricks and trolls (see above) you get when you get a crazy amount of people coming to your blog, just to be a dick, that is totally fine by me.

3. Write whatever the hell you want. People either don’t know this or never believe me but I am so, so painfully shy in real life and pretty quiet… until you get to know me. So, my blog is where I write about all the things I’ve been wanting to say but haven’t been able to in my real life.

4. If you’re writing and stop yourself, not sure you should say something, write it anyway. Whatever you do, DO NOT hold back.

5. If you want to remain anonymous and not worry about what others think, don’t tell anyone (well, maybe with the exception of your spouse) in your real life that you have a blog. I made that mistake.

6. Don’t worry about your blog stats. Easier said than done, I know. It can take time for them to go up.

7. You need to have patience for your blog to get off the ground. If you write it, they will come.

8. Reply to comments. I have really been sucking at that. It counts if I do it telepathically though, right? It also has to do with my shyness. I feel like I’ll be such a dork in my replies.

9. Most of the time, I still have no idea what I’m doing when it comes to blogging.

10. When I write, I do it like I would be talking to my best friend. So, I don’t hold back and may give way too much info.

Yeah, so this may not be much help but even after all this time, I’m still trying to figure this blogging thing out.


On Wednesday, I received the lovely comment below on the post, My Husband Likes To Steal Other People’s Cats In His Spare Time, which I wrote almost 2 years ago. While it’s nice to get a steady stream of traffic to your blog, it also comes with more idiots. But I had a pretty good laugh over it. I wanted to ask her if her parents knew she was using the computer unsupervised and to stay in school. But I went with something else.

This is stupid… And it’s a Terrible story you steal someone’s cat and keep it and joke about stealing it? If you ever stole my cat you would be wishing you don’t get messed up more then you deserve and for all your friend commenters your also a retard for finding this funny. She said she didn’t return it because her (obviously retarded husband) said they change markings… This thread is disgusting poorly written with clique sassy one liners who only hillbilly alcoholic mothers would find funny. You should be ashamed of your self you selfish cunt.

A troll with no life called me a selfish cunt and my blog readers hillbilly alcoholic mothers?!

Best Compliment Ever!!

UPDATED to add: Becky LOVES hillbillies. I think she misses her home at Dogpatch. Also, Becky, it’s not “your”, it’s you’re”. She really needs to learn what a comma is too.

Becky June 21, 2013 at 10:54 

Yup, someone as fucked up as you and your family sounds, would find that a suitable compliment. I’m sure you have been called worse. I actually feel bad for your children (if your used up womb could even hold a child) for having two retarded parents who steals cats and brag about it on the internet.That’s animal abuse, trespassing, theft and just plain morally wrong. But since it sounds like your a red neck with the IQ of a fruit fly, I guess I can’t really blame you. Like I said this was a poorly written blog anyone who would find this garbage funny must be a hillbilly alcoholic. Either that or are just deranged idiots. Oh and your husband really must be a retard. lol

    I have only recently begun my own blogging journey. I want to thank you for your openness and honesty. Also, the list of things you’ve learned is a tremendous inspiration to me. I enjoy your posts and get your humor. People will always be people- which is to say there will always be trolls, dicks, and assholes- so there will be those who have nothing better to do than spew their bitterness all over everything. Just remember: People who leave shitty comments are just jealous! XOXO

      Okay, I’m in love with you. 😉 You need to guest post if you’d like to.

      Here’s to aspiring hillbilly alcoholic mothers everywhere!

      P.S. That crazy woman is obsessed with hillbillies. It’s fucking hilarious. I think she’s jealous that she’s never going to be one. And hello, I don’t know of any where I live in Northern California. 😉

      • Lynn Arnold-Jacques June 21, 2013 at 17:43 #

        I’m descended from a long line of hillbillies. They’re good people. But I’ve never been one to flirt with/make out with my first cousin. So I’ve got a long way to go. Maybe with enough chemical enhancement? Perhaps that’s where the drunk part comes in. Ok, duh.

        You’re so funny. Must be the Cali in you. I’m in So. Cali. Former bay area resident. So am I still allowed to claim No. Cal. residency? Is there a benefit to that? Free pot or something? Hmmm. I may have to do some research.

        Keep up the writing. If you stopped, who’d call you a c*nt every day? Maybe you could get a parrot?
        Happy Friday, c*nt. LOL

    Just thinking about something here. Does this qualify as stealing?

    It’s not really my fault the cat likes my yard better than his own. Maybe this is Becky’s cat? I wouldn’t stick around her yard either.

    Oh, and I’m sending Becky a vibrator and a econo pack of D-cells. She should be in a better mood for a while.

    Dear Becky,

    I could maybe take you seriously if you stopped using the r-word all the time. I find it fascinating that someone like you talks about morality.

    I think you should look at your own mistakes first.

      This! I was way more offended about her using that word than anything else she said about me or my husband. x

  8. Naomi April 7, 2014 at 11:19 #

    Wow, she reminds me of the foaming at the mouth lady who told me she hoped I would never become a mommy when I was 32 weeks pregnant.

    Happy Blog anniversary!
