Secret Spineless Whine submission

Ooooooh, can I play? Can I play? This is an AWESOME blog! 

Here's mine. Or one of them, I should say. I'm known for my w(h)ine...

 
Why does Blogger have to show you your "Follower" numbers on its start page? I mean, there you are, all ready to go for the day, a GREAT post in your head, just waiting to spill out onto the keyboard, when Oh, my GOD! TWO WHOLE PEOPLE JUST UP AND DROPPED YOU! Just like that! You figure they had to feel pretty strongly about you to actually go to the effort of DROPPING you. It's not quite the same as just plain ol' ignoring you, which seems a politer option. They hated you enough to DROP you

You must really suck.

Big time.

No, no, you try to tell yourself. It's OK. Maybe they switched to Google Reader and are anal types who want to make sure all their blog trolling services are up-to-date. 

Or maybe you really suck.

No, no, it's OK, you tell yourself. Not everyone is going to like you. You're fairly whiny, you make stupid jokes about drinking instead of taking care of your kids, and you knit obsessively. It's just not everyone's cup of tea, is all. 

But probably you just really suck.

So there it is, all of 8 AM, and your day is already all shot to hell, because everyone thinks you suck, and now you can't even remember your great post.

Which is OK, because it probably sucked.

Oh my gosh. Not only did I just find this page but I just found this WHINE about something I secretly whine about and it was non other than you, beloved MadMad. That's a good start to my day.

You don't have any insecurity issues, do you?

I get my own insecurities from the fact that only FOUR, count them FOUR, people follow my blog. Talk about disheartening.

Not all of us use the Follower thing. I follow a whole bunch of blogs, not always commenting, and I don't use it.

No offense but we lost a follower as soon as you posted this.

Um, yes...that's exactly it...

it's like when someone vanishes from my friend list on facebook, it's like, 'we're not friends anymore?' :-(

That's exactly why I don't have a follower widget--very bad for obsessive-compulsive types like myself.

You do not suck! I check your blog daily, even though it is not updated daily (hint, hint), and enjoy the hell out of it.

Don't feel bad--I only have three readers to begin with , so if I lose two (which is a distinct possibility given my posting style), I'm pretty much dead in the water.
