Once upon a time, there was this blogger chick named Justine. When she started her blog, it was basically to appease those that kept telling her, "Start a blog! You can write!", the most outspoken being a groovy chick named Gollum.
At this time, many of the bloggers we have today were blogless, but busy nonetheless, parading around the halls of HGTV.com's Rate My Space. Many friends were made by commenting back and forth among spaces, but times they did change. There were trolls out there. Mean people who, instead of having fun and leaving positive comments, turned snarky and cruel and troll-like.
Now I (I can't do this whole post in the 3rd person!) was always a believer in sticking up for the underdog, the meek, the design -challenged. But there were some people who thought they were queens of RMS and picked fights with me and others for no good reason. In fact, arguments were breaking out left and right, down every corridor of HGTV, and this led to many of the residents leaving.
Well, I had my email buddies to fill my long, lonely days, and couldn't imagine what I'd write if I started a blog, but more people kept
badgering encouraging me, so I decided to take the plunge and write. It didn't take long to realize that this was an outlet, one where I could be myself and just write about everyday life. It was slow going at first, being the newbie in blogland, but then came my post, "Got Fleas?", and wow, I got 25 comments on that. If I could get 25 comments, why not double that and get 50? At least, this was my thinking seven months ago when this literary journey began.
These days I'm not only known by Justine, but also go by Justiney (started by my wonderful blogger friend, Shelia) and Tiney to many others. I still haven't hit my goal of 50 comments per post, but have high hopes that it will some day happen. Maybe I need to take my animal "aura" shit and exude it into the blogosphere instead of the atmosphere?
For those who are new to my blog and would like to take a peek at some of my favorite past blog posts, the links will be found below. Or maybe you're an old and beloved friend and would just enjoy a peek back at my misadventures and odd tales. And maybe, just maybe, your head is already hitting the keyboard with boredom and you'll leave now. Without even commenting. Which is rude. I'm just sayin'. And by the way, non-commenting friends and family out there. I know who you are, and I will hold an everlasting grudge against you until you start saying hello. For those rockin' peeps that do leave comments, make sure you come back to this post to leave yours!
Without further ado, my favorites:
