Wow. This is my 100th post. I gotta tell ya; I expected to have lost interest by now since clearly folks have lost interest in utilizing the DONATE button to the left *clearing throat* – but here I am, still posting away. I haven’t gotten a buck from anyone in about a month, but what can you do. I’ll continue with the blog. It keeps me out of trouble.
I’ve learned a thing or two from this little experiment, too. I’m not the helpless bridal tragedy I once was. I now have an idea of what things cost, how to negotiate (kind of), and know what an inspiration board is, though I still don’t know how to make one and am not 100% sure what to do once one is designed. While I have no date yet (details), I DO have a dress, two venues I adore, a custom monogram, a videographer ready to help a sister out, and a manilla folder filled with pictures of hair (think Taylor Swift in US Weekly a few weeks ago), flowers, and decor, and clippings of wedding song ideas, etc. Budget is still in the works. So, I’m still a little desperado. But better than I was then.
Just for kicks, I looked back at the comments from that first post. Cripes. Lots of “get a job” (I have one, thank you), “go to the courthouse,” and “you’re tacky.” While at first I was slightly mortified (only momentarily though – I’m not big on getting too bent out of shape about what other people think, especially when it’s just the internet), I thought, “Eh. Someone will give me a buck.” And some people did.
Anyway, if you’re an avid reader (I heart you!) and haven’t tossed a buck my way, no biggie. But if you can and feel compelled, please don’t be shy. 🙂
THANKYOUTHANKYOUTHANKYOU, readers – for making it worth my time and energy to compose 100 posts. I heart you.
PS – What the heck is up with Twitter?!?! So annoying!
