Jessica Quirk, vacationer, has started a series called “52 Thoughts” which is apparently her way of inserting complaints about her hard, hard life into her “personal style blog”. This week we are treated to Messica’s feels about how hard it is for her to be A Creative in the cruel arena of the public eye. Evidently she read Big Magic on her 90293035th vacation this year and she’s decided she doesn’t care if you like her work anymore.
It’s not my job to please the masses when I get dressed…and it’s also not my job to try to cater to each and every person that reads my blog…It’s also not my job to cater to the people that do like what I’m doing. It’s my job to express myself and to be creative in a way that enriches my life, that enriches my self esteem and ultimately helps me grow in my writing, my art, and as a person.
Saying she feels like “a scared cat trapped in a box while kids throw stones at me” Messica reveals she has been “putting up brick walls because I’m afraid of the feedback”. She concludes by saying she needs to “find satisfaction outside of an online yay or nay”.
Katie, she runs, has posted an important message for those of you lost in suicidal feelings and depression. See, recently someone who Katie had never met took his own life. Katie decided she “wanted to write about it in the hopes that I can do my part”.
I have been very open about the fact that I battle depression…Each and every time I’ve felt that way, it eventually got better. Those dark moments don’t last forever, even though they feel like they will. I say this because if you’re going through something like that, now or in the future, just keep reminding yourself that IT WILL GET BETTER. One day, you won’t feel like that any more, and you’ll be so glad that you persevered through that very tough time.
So buck up and hang in there! It’ll get better if you just don’t kill yourself! What an impactful and effective post, I bet she just saved a million lives!
Instagram, the social media platform where boring people can make their lives look amazing, is changing their display algorithm to prioritize posts they think you’ll like the most instead of displaying your feed in chronological order. Naturally this means the intarwebs needs to freak out.
Even Kendall Jenner is complaining about the algorithm armageddon despite instagram saying they “assure you nothing is changing with your feed right now”. Unfortunately all the notification begging is having the opposite effect, turning some followers off a feed completely. No matter – the instagram famous will probably all quit the platform in protest, sort of like how they all quit pinterest when that platform started forbidding affiliate linking. Oh wait.
This post came on the heels of Natty surrounded by a pile of collaboration clothes and telling us “the more denim the better”.
So I guess the idea of Kon-Mari is to throw out everything and get all new stuff every 3 months? Or no? Because that’s what all the bloggers pushing it seem to be doing.
Natalie Now, the former Mormon In Manhattan who is now a Mormon in Utah, continues to be the most pregnant woman who ever pregnanted. She has lots of tips for you other pregnant ladies, including how to pose for your bump pics.
See, Natalie believes that “preg or not, my hand doesn’t need to touch my pubic bone!” Of course, she doesn’t really care that much. When someone commented “it’s not really about posting what other people want to see or not see right?” Natalie responded “you do you! Who cares?!”
That’s right – she’s claiming to have broken her titanium hardware for the second time in three months. It seems she knew something bad was coming, because she was vague posting weirdness last night.
This latest health crisis may put a damper on Becky getting that “dream job” she claimed she would be interviewing for tomorrow. Poor thing. Maybe another one of her friends can start yet another GoFundMe!
Kath Eats Real Food, recent guest of the White House, has confirmed months of speculation.
Matt and I are separating.
Some of you are probably shocked and others have suspected, as he hasn’t been as front and center on the blog as he once was. This wasn’t an overnight decision, but something that has been building, or rather unraveling, for over a year.
Her announcement post goes on to say the separation is “bittersweet and totally mutual”, and that they have simply “started traveling down separate paths”.
