Going Blogger

I'm sorry, but I had to do it for my sanity. I removed some of my favorite pregnant bloggers from my "real-time" blog roll. I just couldn't stand to see the posts titled with each week of pregnancy. I am happy for you, but it is a painful reminder to me that I should have been happy when I was pregnant, but I wasn't. It just makes me feel deficient.

Then, I check in to Blogger today to be bombed by three, count them THREE baby pictures that I have to look at for god knows how long of babies from the Blogger Team. Frankly my "team", I don't give a damn. If I could figure out how to send them an e-mail and maybe an f-bomb, I'd do it. It's bad enough that I have to avert my eyes every time I go to the grocery store and get bombarded at the checkout by the gossip magazines of celebrity babies, but now on Blogger? Anyone else annoyed about that? Instead of going postal, I'm going blogger. You won't see me around here until those pictures move down to the bottom of my sign-in page!

It makes perfect sense that posts and blogs like mine would be painful for you. I completely understand you needing to take space and protect yourself. It is a really healthy response.

I don't think you are deficient at all. I think you are wounded and grieving and that you have good reason to be.

I am still out here hoping for you and wanting good for you and understand that where I am at might be hard for you right now. Peace and blessings to you.

Do whatever you need to. I know your friends will understand.

I log into google reader and go to my blogs from there so I only saw the pics on another friend's blog as she was as disgusted as you are. I completely understand the boycott. (Hugs)

Hey Spicy,

I love your blog, really. I just moved your link to the non-real-time area.

I don't mean to dis any of you lovely pregnant ladies out there, because I know I didn't like being abandoned once I was. It's me really. My issue, not yours.

I'm happy to add your link back to the afore mentioned area if you drop me a line. Just got a little trigger happy last night.

Lost in Space,

Thanks for the tip. I'll have to try that out.

those 3 babies really bug me, too. OK, one day would be acceptable but to leave them up for so long? Give us a break! I didn't expect to face that when I logged into my IF blog.
