Okay, so I’d say my addiction has taken over. And no, it’s not a Candy Crush addiction!
It’s an addiction to……….
As you know, my post yesterday was a lot little controversial. I meant it all in good fun. I didn’t post it with the intention of seriously offending anyone… at least no more than I usually do.
So I’m not quite sure why I felt obligated to stare at my stats all day to make sure my number of followers didn’t start dropping all because of one potentially offensive post. But – I did. Obsessively. Constantly.
By the time I was finally ready for bed, I was relieved to see that I didn’t lose any of my awesome blogger friends over one post.
Only a few hours later, I was back on WordPress staring at the number of my loyal followers. And that’s when it happened.
My number dropped by one.
Holy crap! No!!!
And then another one.
And then two more.
What was happening?! I didn’t mean to offend you, people! It wasn’t that serious!
Finally, it dropped four more. I lost eight followers! I’m never going to be ineligible for the Liebster Award now…
All because of one quasi-funny post??? This sucks! It didn’t even have all my political views on there because I didn’t want to really piss people off.
I couldn’t bear to watch my followers drop any more. I got teary-eyed and was about to have a breakdown when all of a sudden I awoke in a cold sweat, still panicky.
Oh, thank God! I was dreaming!
Wait… at least I think I was dreaming. I immediately got on WordPress and went straight to my stats page. WHEW! No missing followers!
Sure. Laugh it up. You think it’s funny. But it’s not! I was seriously panicking over the thought of some of you guys dumping me already. It’s only been four months, and all relationships have rocky moments here and there, right??
Don’t give up on me yet! If I say something that offends you, just say something mean and awful back! I can handle it. And if I can’t, I’ll just blog about it!
The main problem I see here is that none of you can help me with my addiction. You’re all damn addicts, too! Bunch of enablers…
Okay, now on a brighter note…
Today’s my birthday, and they seriously get more depressing as I realize that more and more of my kids’ teachers are now younger than I am.
But Arden cheered me up this morning with the perfect card!
And the envelope was even better!
And Eugene cheered me up with the perfect drink!
It’s gonna’ be a great day, right?! I mean, I might even get a senior citizen’s discount at the grocery store now… [sigh]
