I have a formspring, oh yes, it’s true. I usually don’t get any questions, most people talk to me on Twitter if they have a comment or question, but when I logged in today, I was excited to see that I had a few questions in my inbox.
Well, they’re not questions, they’re more like snarky comments. This is what was said (in three SEPARATE posts):
“I saw your comments on the Shoe-A-Day blog about Modcloth,* and this might come out mean but it’s true: Modcloth may highlight those they sponsor but it’s because they actually have FASHIONABLE style! I’m sorry, but you need to get your photography and wardrobe together before getting Modcloth to feature you. I usually don’t side with them but just because you applied & have a blog doesn’t entitle you to a feature! Do you know how many people email them about that feature?!
And your hair color is really bad & we can all see your roots.”
*This is the post to which this person is referring, which is from June…
I didn’t answer this person in formspring because I believe they’re not going to check to see if I did. Obviously they just wanted to call me out, tell me I have no style and leave it at that. And that’s totally fine, that’s their opinion. I don’t feel the need to clarify my opinion behind my comments on the Shoe-a-Day post, because it was from June. But, I certainly don’t want other people to assume that I think I should be featured on Modcloth because I have a blog (the commenter assumed that, which wasn’t the truth).
If you read Cher’s post, she talks about how SHE recommended me to be featured, and her comment was approved, then went back into moderation. Turi, from Modcloth responded, and I responded to her. If you click the link above you can see what I wrote, but basically I said I had applied twice to be featured (I’ve also suggested many other bloggers to be featured), and it’s just a little discouraging when all you see are the ladies they sponsor being featured. It would be nice to see other bloggers who aren’t on the payroll featured.
The answer is just for my anonymous formspring questioner:
I appreciate you taking the time to write three separate posts to me! It takes a lot of guts to leave someone an anonymous comment (or three). When you are free, would you please come over and teach me how to dress, buy me hair dye and teach me how to take photos. I would really appreciate it. And just because you preface something with “this might be mean but…” doesn’t mean you have the right to be mean.
Oh, and by the way, Modcloth did feature me on their Tumblr.
I really don’t mind snark or rude comments, seeing as this is the second one I’ve received and I’m still here, blogging along. In my opinion I must be doing something right if people are taking the time to tell me how terrible I am. Well, that and everyone that reads this must be crazy too, because you all seem to like my outfits, which means none of us are fashionable. So, let’s stick together!! 🙂
That is all, have a great weekend. The next DIY Halloween post will be up tomorrow!
PS- are my roots really that bad?! I can’t see them in any of my posts!!
