I Finally Feel A Little Like An Adult.

I had a good laugh this morning, seriously. I checked my Sitemeter as I often do, to see who’s been reading and where people are coming from. On the “referrals” page, I noticed a website I didn’t recognize, so I clicked on it.

It was a blog, one I have never seen nor heard of before. Today’s post was entitled “Worst Blog Post I’ve Ever Read”, and the body of the post said “Don’t ask how I found it.” That’s it. The one sentence linked to this post on my blog.

Seriously? I laughed my badonkadonk off. And then I went to my Facebook page and immediately changed my status to say “Melisa is laughing because another blogger posted that a Scrawl post about M & M’s is the worst he’s EVER seen. He has no idea I’ve written way worse posts than that.”

And it’s true. Like my very first post. THAT sucked. Or this one. BO-ring.

I clicked on the “About” section of that blog to learn more about my critic, and it appears that he is a co-writer with a couple of other younguns who enjoy criticizing others and using lots of curse words to make up for their lack of writing skills.

But I digress. I think I’ve had a mental growth spurt. Not too long ago I would have been totally upset about this a$$, putting up a post like that. But I’m not. I could care less.

*cue angelic music*

Wow. It feels good.

    That’s awesome funny! I think you need a button or something special to showcase it. Comment back that you have been put down by finer blogs than his. hehehehe, You’re great!

    You know what they say, if you can't compete ou criticize. I liked the m&m's post. Obviously other people did too…it got response. I'm glad you can laugh it off, that's all it deserves.

    There is NOTHING boring or bad about a post on my beloved M&Ms.

    I am so glad that I am not one of those people that feels like they have to go around and bash other people's blogs. What an unhappy life.

    Congratulations for being an adult!

    Gimmee that address. Me and some of the boys will go over and teach the little sh… nice boy some manners. Capice?

    Weaselmomma: A button would be HILARIOUS. I'll think about that…it's going on my to-do list. I'll get to it around 2015. 🙂

    Tutugirl: I'm in total agreement with you; what's not to love about a post about M&Ms?? 🙂

    Stacey: Thanks! I liked it also! He must hate candy.

    Sue: I totally thought of you, first thing when I discovered it. As in, "OMG, my M&Ms post??? I remember that Sue loved it and even did an M&Ms post of her own right after!" (seriously, I did think that! 🙂 ) How dare he!

    Nukedad: Ha! You're awesome. I will save that favor for someone who would be worth teaching manners to. 🙂 BTW, you get extra credit for the Italian at the end of your comment. I don't know what you can use the extra credit for, but it's there if either one of us figure it out.

    BTW, the way he found my post? The way that he doesn't want anyone to ask about?

    My sitemeter reports that about an hour before he posted, someone came to that post via a search for "what did blue m&m's replace".

    Could he be trying to hide that he used Google? Huh?

  • Mags

    Well…in my opinion, a post about a bad post (which yours was not, by the way) is even worse. Why would he post something like that? And why would he actually link to it? That’s not only stupid, it’s rude. Who the h-e-double hockey sticks does he think he is?

    Stupid head.

  • abritdifferent

    It’s amazing the lengths others will go to to make themselves feel good. What a bunch of slappers. Sounds like they never left high school.

  • Dea

    LMAO about how he found it!!! Haha!

    I found their blog (nosey, I know….but I was dying) and they’re just sad….pitiful even….oh well, it was actually pretty amusing that he couldn’t even comment further, you know??? That’s it?? That’s as mean as he is? 😛

    Maybe you should post and link them to the washable reusable pad post…..bwaha….

    Awww, my little girl is growing up! It does make me laugh. But I'm with you — I only care about the opinions of those I respect. This? I don't think I could respect!

    And we've had our discussion about tan M&Ms and blue ones, right?

  • Melisa with one S

    Mags: Nice name-calling. LOL

    Siobhan: The funny thing is, according to their "about" page, they may have *just recently* left high school: they're 18/19 yrs. old!

    Deanna: Ha! You are hilarious. I can't believe you went looking for it. Wait, yes I can. 🙂

    Michelle: Totally. And yes, we *did* discuss our mourning of the loss of tan M&Ms. 🙂 The blue ones stick out like a sore thumb.

  • Sheri

    You have a great attitude! Unlike the guy who posted that. Hmm, how original is it to just repost someone else’s work and call it bad? And for the record, I enjoyed that post!

    I will admit though, I cringe when I read back to my first few posts. Oh fine, I cringe when I read some of my recent posts, lol.
