Welcome to MY BLOG!

It’s been about 8 months since I first started this blog and I know that many of you who are readers now have not been with me from the beginning. I am so honored and blessed that you find it worth your time to pay my little spot a visit and sometimes even leave a little feedback. Whether you are a track and field enthusiast who appreciates an athlete’s perspective, a person who just likes to read different blogs, a stalker, or a friend or family member who realizes the only way to find out about what’s happening in my life is by reading my blogs…I’m glad you’re here. Lately though, I’ve realized that some of the “feedback” I’m receiving is not always of a positive nature. And I’m not speaking of those who voice a difference of opinion or offer up another viewpoint when they feel compelled to. I welcome that. I’m talking about the mean-spirited comments that serve no purpose other than to be unkind and cruel, and that judge me unfairly. Because let’s face it…you probably don’t know ME.

Sure, you might know a little bit about me if you take a little time and peruse through some of the entries. I think it gives a nice little snapshot. But obviously there is so much more to me then I could possibly include in a few weekly entries. But one thing that should be quite clear regardless is that I write this blog mainly for me. I stated that in the Introduction and it’s also clearly mentioned at the top of this page. The blog is about MY LIFE. So perhaps you can understand why I find it odd that people take the time to complain when I write about, say, myself! Or that I post pictures of myself… Imagine that?! It’s silly to me that people want to point out how self-absorbed and full of myself I am to continue to mention “me” as if they didn’t realize what they were getting into. There are plenty of blogs dedicated to politics, world events, the environment, etc. This one ain’t it! Sorry to disappoint. (I am fully aware that Hillary is giving her concession speech today and I'll probably watch--but I'd rather blog about something else. Cute guys? My six 8 pack? The ridiculous sports bra tan this summer heat is giving me?) Along with this is the notion of me being extremely one-dimensional because you know “athletes”—they don’t have the ability to think or care about anything besides themselves. Preposterous. Just because my blog might seem one-dimensional does not mean my mind is. I am also a sarcastic individual. I mention this only because lately it seems to be missing its mark with some of you. I make fun of myself but I never am trying to make fun of someone else or act as if I’m better than him or her. Yes, even when I call their legs squishy. It is not my fault that I don’t normally have squishy legs but it also doesn’t make me better than someone who does. On numerous occasions I have pointed out the fact that my lady lumps are on the invisible small side, yet nobody took the time to bash me for thinking I’m better than people with larger breasts now did they? Let’s not be biased now.

All this ranting is mainly just to say that I enjoy writing this blog and I am flattered that more than 3 people even bother to read it. For me, it is a positive outlet that allows me to share my experience as well as deal with things in a more productive manner due to the fact that I have received so much encouragement and support from most of you. For the small minority who hide behind your computer screen anonymously and throw out random, spiteful comments, I really just wish you wouldn’t bother. It boggles me how someone would even take time to read and invest in something they weren’t fond of. If you secretly hope that I fail, just keep it to yourself. If you find me to be narcissistic and it bothers you, stay away and don’t be bothered. If you absolutely cannot stand when people would post a picture of themselves in a bikini for others to look at, my blog is definitely not for you. This is not required reading for anybody. I want people here who actually enjoy it. I’d never visit a blog written by Paris Hilton because I can’t stand her. And I definitely wouldn’t then take my precious time commenting about how annoying she is and how ugly her feet are! Do you catch my drift? Don’t get me wrong; I enjoy a spirited debate just as much as anybody, just make sure you have a point.

So once again, thank you for all of you who have made this an enjoyable experience for me. I like blogging more than I ever thought I would. And for the “e-thuggers” (credit goes to D.O. for that one), take the advice you learned in kindergarten. If you don’t have anything nice to say…


Anonymous said... can you post a picture of your feet so we can see whether they're ugly?

I do wonder why people are always posting non sense on the comment page, I chalk it up to them wanting to be me, you should too. A wise man once told me people hate when you're better than them, if they ain't hatin' start worrying then. e-thugs, swagger jackers and mr. me too's get under my skin more than anything.

So what's new with the knee? You need to post an update, complete with surgery scars!

I just left a lengthy post and somehow messed it up actually posting it. Darn it.

I'll try again later (I'm supposed to be working)

Brianna said...

haha...david you have the best names. i can always count on you for something original and fun.

christy, i like the last name. :)

Please don't let the e-ballers get to you. Consider it a twisted form of flattery. I mean, it takes some effort to go to someone else's blog, view it, and criticize it! There's obviously somethign that keeps them coming back. Kepp up the good work! and Good Luck!

Christy Holliday said...

First of all, a double high-five for this post. Mean ppl suck and should not be given the time of day. That said, I won't go into my exact thoughts as to nasty comments. Suffice to say, I agree with you.

I would also like to say that I'm so happy I found you (again) online and that you have this blog so I can keep up-to-date with what's happening with you. It's been far too many years since I've seen you and I have incredibly fond memories of you from when we did spend time together. You will always have a special place in my heart and I want only the BEST things for you. So keep posting and all the haters can go fly a kite.



P.S. Thank you - I'm still getting used to my last name, but I'm writing it everywhere. ;-)

If we can't talk about how ugly your feet are then I'm gone!

ktizzle said...

I piggy back on what D.O. is saying. as much as e-thugs, haters, simps, suckas and biters get under your skin they are just doing their job... like Katt Williams says if you got 14 haters right now by the end of summer you need to find a way to have 16. in fact by trials you need to find a way to have 20 and if any of you haters on here don't feel like hating on Bri anymore feel free to hate on me.

the bigger/better you get the more haters are going to hate cause the more they realize they can't be like you...

Who cares what any of them have to say! You know it's all insecurity. Who doesn't expect you to talk about yourself and your experiences??? Duh. Perhaps they are not as well-versed as you or they simply lead such boring lives they could never have anything interesting enough to tell a bunch of strangers.

Keep doing what you do! I enjoy reading!

That was hilarious Bri. I'm mad I haven't been keeping up on the blog man, now I gotta go back and read all your posts from February. Damn.
