*Taken April 28th
As you can see, compared to my next highest amount of page views, that is psycho. Also, whenever a breastfeeding site picks up my blog my views skyrocket. It's fabulous even though I know those folks are hatin' on me ..who cares?! I'm getting page views. I win, breastfeeding-photo-taking-facebook-posting-them mothers. I win. Why do I win?
Because I don't care that you think I'm awful for not finding your child attached to your nipple a special moment. I stand firm in that there are LOTS of special moments in life that don't need to be publicly documented.
People have commented that my post is not funny because there are several other items up for overshare awards. I don't get how picking a broad topic& narrowing it down to a specific example makes it less funny? It does, though.
So, in honor of all those photo-taking offended mommas? I am going to create a list of other things that no one cares about except you and an immediate group of friends or family (and honestly? They probably don't care either but are required to be polite. Unlike your facebook world). Buckle your seat belts, ladies& gents. This is gonna get wild.
1. Breastfeeding, obviously.
2. Excessive details / photos of medical procedures.
3. What is coming out of either end of your / your child's body.
4. Sonogram photos. NO ONE CARES.
5. Constant status updates. Not every thought is a gem, junior.
6. How much you drank / what stupid things you did while drinking.
7. Any kind of photo that exposes more skin that is appropriate for the situation.
7A. Bikini at the beach? Socially appropriate.
7B. Bikini at the church? Jesus hates your soul.
People have also commented that I am a huge hypocrite because I dislike oversharing, yet I have a blog. 'HOW CAN THE TWO COEXIST, YOU HORRIBLE HYPOCRITICAL MONSTER?!' is something I'm frequently (aka never) asked.
Allow me to give you some time to consider (if you've been reading my blog regularly) how much you know about me? Feel free to even look back through my posts. It's not very likely you're going to see photos of me dressed inappropriately, talking about gross bodily functions, etc..
So, to you people who are AMAZED that you can write something of substance and not overshare? I present to you -MY BLOG. It's a thing of wonder& amazement. It's sheer genius and you should bow before (aka follow) it. You should praise it in the Osannas (aka tweet it) and bask in the glory of my brilliance.
