Saturday in Santa Monica

Popsicle, this is for you! :)
Santa Monica

Santa Monica Pier

Santa Monica KubooWe had a little work event in Santa Monica over the weekend. It’s stunning over there! It’s kind of sad that the beach is only 20 minutes away, yet I rarely see it because I’m always running around West Hollywood and Hollywood. ANYWAY, I mostly posted this because my dad was begging me to get the dishwasher pic off the main page. Point taken. :D

I agree with dad, the dishwasher was there a little too long. I want to know if you even stuck your feet in the ocean while you were there?

Yeah, almost staring at that dishwasher picture every day for close to a month was getting annoying. I agree with your dad.

Great question, CC. I’ll have to address this soon.

What a great replacement for the dishwasher picture you found :)! Makes me wish I could beam myself to that beach.

… but I bet the dishwasher is a little sad now ;).

I’m not the same Erica as the comment above, although I’m feeling like she is predicting the truth (I hope not!) I’ve loved your blog for a while. As someone who struggled with the whole ED thing for 5 years, I stumbled upon your blog right about the time I was a year out of my last treatment (finally!!) and was moving past it. It was SO refreshing to find someone in the same position – who had not only learned to manage, but then get past it. I hope you return from your blog. I really do. And if you don’t return to the blog, I only hope it is because your California life is fantastic, and you are too busy having a blast.

So she moves to ugly, smoggy, polluted LA and totally forgets about her blog? Like a girl getting a new boyfriend and ignoring her friends. Mature. At least have the decency to tell your readers what’s up. It’s obvious you are too into yourself right now to even write one single post. Anyways, enjoy your time in smoggy LA. It suits you.

Hey Kailey,

When bloggers are first building their audience and updating their blog regularly, they depend on their readership showing up every day, engaging via comments, and following them on social media platforms. Which, if they’re a successful blogger, happens. I’d say that on some scale that happened for you, which is what you wanted. It’s what you worked for. In fact, your audience has arguably helped you gain employment because the fact that we read is a testament to your skills. We’ve been a metric you can put on your resume and drop during interviews.

Now that you’ve moved on to a different part of your life (which is totally natural and acceptable, we’re all excited that you’re living your dream), you’ve kind of left all those people who have been supporting you hanging. We were there when you wanted us to be, and we’re here even though you’ve vacated. I understand that you probably don’t want to make any kind of final decisions about shutting down your blog because you’re worried, “what if I want to come back to this?” But you could always just tell us that you’re going on an indefinite hiatus, which isn’t that big of a deal.

The very least you can do is say something to the audience you worked to build and who’s supported you when you asked for it. You’ve had a cheering section for how many years now? Even if it doesn’t feel right, write something. Not because you want to, but because it’s respectful.

Oh my gaaawd. Let the gal live her life. You guys are nuts. Stop wasting your time and write your own blog if you need it so. Sometimes blogs serve as our outlet through the hard (and good)/transitional times in life… And sometimes, it’s time to move on to the next chapter. There’s nothing wrong with that! You should all do the same.

Live it up girl!!! You made it :)
