to "what a gift"

I'm sorry you were offended by a few of my "paid" posts.
Yes, I do take those posts and am paid for them.
I am a Christian. I am also a mother, a friend, a sister, a wife and a daughter.
I am a person!
I don't know if you noticed, but I have been dealing with a very sick little girl all day and really am in no mood to be criticized by a person who does not leave a link or a real name. Being judgmental is in my opinion a very harsh place to be.

Good for you! I, being another PPP member, acknowledge fully that the posts you do for them are strictly to help you financially and may not reflect your belief system exactly.

I'm not offended at all and I support your point of view here 100%!

Don't pay any attention to SUCH people. Let'em go somewhere else.
Hope Izzy is still getting better.

You know what Annie? This is your blog and you can post whatever you want to post, including paid posts for pete's sake.

No one makes anyone read a post so that person was completely out of line and good for you for putting her or him in her place.

Unfortunately, there are just mean people in this world who have nothing to do but go around trying to make people feel bad.

You go!

*hugs* Annie! I am sorry you have to deal with this kind of harrassment!! This is your blog and you can do whatever you want with it. Me I find nothing wrong with doing paid blogging, every little bit helps! I have funded a trip with mine, and will be paying off my new camera as well with all my blog money!!

I hope Izzy is feeling better today!!


Who Am I? said...

I am a mom and a Christian too. I was very interested in the plastic surgery post because my body is a little less than perfect after carrying and nursing four little ones. Will I ever have surgery? I'm not sure, but I was very pleased with the information you provided here. I've got no problem with you generating a little income for your family while providing some good information to your readers. They are certainly not required to click on the links.

But seriously, I can't be the only Christian who looks at her post-baby body from time to time, cringes, and wonders about doing something to make it look better.

Ditto to what the others said! You go....yes, your blog and you can do what you want. Don't pay attention to someone like that.

True dat! Perhaps the meanie doesn't think about what they write first and the impact it could have. If they didn't like it, they had a choice to not read it.

You my dear are doing a job that is most important. I think Izzy needs another hug. {{{hugs 4 U & Izzy}}}

What a Gift said...

In my own defense I have to say I'm Sorry I didn't intend to offend you what so ever, I was confuse and thought maybe I had been hijacked or something at first. I could explain what I was thinking and what I meant, but at this point it doesn't matter anyway. Just know that my intentions where not to be judging or offensive, I'm SORRY!!!!

Nancy Face said...

I'm so sorry you felt criticized by a comment you hurts my ♥ to know you were made to feel badly. Now I see that the commenter above has apologized, and I'm so glad! I hope you feel better about it!

I agree with the others...this blog belongs to you, and I think it's great that you can earn some money while being at home with Izzy! :)
