Circle of WTF

i've been watching my twitterverse/facebook-topia blow up all day because of the Circle Of Moms Blog Polls.  first it was that one of the entrants in the "faith" division was seriously bashing the pagans.  (and i read the blog in question.  she was harsh, very harsh). then a bit later same blogger exited the contest (to which she was getting pounded into the ground, BTW) as a personal decision because she couldn't in good consciousness be part of a contest that allowed pagans.  now it's the second spot of the political division calling all her followers to (as FeministBreeder put it " vote down the "feminazis" and other such slurs"  

OK.  WTF. 

it's a blog contest people!!!!!!!!!!!  and yes, i know that some people make money off their blog from advertisers and it's important for them to be seen by lots of people.  

but it's a frakking blog. 

i think some people have forgotten why most of us got started blogging to begin with.  we have something to say.  something that is important to us.  and i don't know about the rest of the blogging universe, but i for one don't give a rat's right butt cheek what other people think about what i'm saying.  (except for YOU, i love YOU).  chalk it up to the frustrated artist in me, but whilst i think it would be frakking awesome to be part of the 'top 25', i don't want it so much that i'm going to send my minions out to be evil.  admittedly i only have one minion, and he's 1 1/2, not very scary.  

so kudos to FeministBreeder, Confessions of a Pagan Soccer Mom, and PaganMomBlog.  you guys are awesome and haven't once yet belittled the competition.  i wish the rest of the 'verse was as cool as you.  



  1. Seconded! Well said.

  2. Thanks hon! I don't want to belittle anyone because it's just a friendly (or so I thought) competition. And honestly I love seeing all of the different faiths being represented, I know I saw 2 Muslim blogs and quite a few Jewish ones as well. It was supposed to be a fun thing, today it almost lost it's fun.

  3. You love me, you really love me! ;)

    In all seriousness, well said. I was glued to my computer for hours feeling my rear expanding to fill my chair instead of working outside, but I just couldn't look away. I'm glad that, at least seemingly, it's over and it was handled with tact, intelligence and maturity; by all who stood up to this hatemongering today.

    Personally, I was digging seeing all of the different faith blogs in there. Now, I'm sort of sour on the contest.
