I have never uttered a negative comment on a blog, but I guess I feel it is my turn to step up to the plate. It pertains to all these popularity contests in the blogs. Some people are very sensitive, such as myself. There are at least 3 blogs going on at this time that are asking people to vote for their favorite, classiest or most eligible bachelor or bachelorette. Maybe it is because I have only had the honor of being nominated once and that was by my sweet friend CinDCo. But to be quite honest, I have found myself checking these blogs just in the hopes of maybe, just maybe, I might be so lucky as to have been nominated again. And I would be lying if I were to say I haven't been disappointed in seeing that once again, I wasn't on the "most popular" list. I am a grown woman for goodness sake and I am not in elementary school any more, so why do I feel the need to be liked by all? I am even embarrassed to be writing this in public view for all to see my "vulnerable" side and a character defect that is not becoming. But...in all sincerity, I know that if I feel this way, there must be countless others that have the same views and the truth is...it can hurt. As adults, we are supposed to outgrow feelings of inadequacy and we are expected to "love ourselves just as we are". I do love me....but by george I want YOU to love me too! Well....you get my drift...not literally love me. Anyway, to make a long story short...how about we lay off the popularity contests a bit....it can be a little intimidating, especially if you are the one leaning against the wall at the school dance, watching and never being asked. Or...if you are the one picked last for the dodge ball game. I wouldn't want to wish those feelings on anyone. So there, I just wrote my first negative blog, only if you interpret it this way of course. But...maybe I gave you all something to think about. And PS....I need some votes!!! Ha Ha Just kidding!

Hey, You're beautiful, you look great, and beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Since we look at ourselves everyday, we ARE the beholders. To hell with the blogs and popularity! Most of the people that judge others don't even know THEMSELVES! Lemme lend some advice on this one-----they can't take your talent, dreams, or your accomplishments away. You are better than anyone else until THEY PROVE they are worthy. That's not arrogance--that's self-preservation. Be nice, be sweet and KNOW you are da bomb! Be popular with God. He's the one doing the judging anyway! Much love sister! Cell

I understand your side of it...but aren't we taking all of this a little too seriously??? I don't believe Will meant any thing negative to come out of this....There may have been women who felt the need to be in the spot light but honestly ...I feel they were just down right surprised and really felt honored that other women see and think of them in such a positive light... in return there was a thanking and appreciation of the hearts....What I see in Will's Blog is that he brought together a bunch of women who were basically at each other's throats....there was a lot of pettiness back biting going on...Will's blog brought forth a flow of forgetting all of that negative rhetoric....and an air of forgiveness and comradery rose from the ashes like a phoenix from the flames..Hasn't anyone notice how everyone praised everyone else...some even bringing in other's that perhaps no one has even heard of ...I believe we all wanted to make sure no one would be forgotten...I think what it all comes down too... ladies... is that we are all special, beautiful and unique ..each in her own way....we are all sisters...and when it comes right down to it..we allow for the differences..and accept the other's faults even when virtually slapped so to speak...the bottom line is that we stand up for each other ..and we support each other...just like in this blog...I understand that your feelings were hurt...and I am so sorry...but the good thing is look at all these lovely ladies that are here at your rescue look at the positive support you are now receiving...these ladies really care.....So do we all......how beautiful is this??? Can't we please just stop..the negative flow...and just be nice..... You are beautiful Sweet Sheila...and obviously a nice lady....The man who wins your attentions will be a lucky lucky guy.... Love and Happiness Always... Erica Anne@}------------

wow i didn't know that there was a popularity blog so childish. i honestly don't care if everybody likes or doesn't becuase no matter what not everybody is going to like you because everybody is different, every body has different taste. you shouldn't worry about and care about what people has to say or think of you because you will never have everybody happy. just be true to your self and be yourself. being popular isn't everything because in the long run poeple will not remember you unless you stay close friends w/ them.

I agree my friend. That is why I nominated you and every other woman who participated here at the time (please don't take offense to that). I didn't think it was fair for anybody to lean one way or the other but have in the meantime posted several other times for updates as many people have come and gone and are still getting "voted to stay on the island," well after their ships have sailed. I know, for one, you are in my... (how many are there of us....) top of many! Did you get me e-mail last week? I'll send it agiain. Everything is such a blur. Well, I wouldn't worry about being popular sweet. The direction things have been going the past few weeks the only one's who have been out there have beent he weak and the sick! So, you're not missing out on much. It's been a rat race! Who want's that kind of popularity? Sheesh??? NO OFFENSE TO THE NORMAL PEOPLE WHO PARTICIPATED INTELLIGENTLY!

LOL gm Shelia at first I rolled my eyes and my initial reaction was "are you kidding me? How old are you?" But as I read on and you acknowledged the silliness, yet reality, of your feelings I have to say. . .Good for you for writing this blog! Not that I care. ..frankly I'd rather be left out of the nominations. A bunch of people I dont know saying I'm classy, or pretty, or whatever. I like the funniest one though.Dammit I'm funny!

I wouldn't worry too much about the vote thing. I think it was mainly to boost the egos of those who are already deep down insecure. Or I could be wrong but thats my impression. I don't need a vote to say that I'm classy as I know I already am! :-P Or a vote to say I'm funny as I know I can make people laugh. I think the blogs were meant in a light hearted way. You seem like a great person and I'm sure everyone around you will appreciate that. sarah :-)

In a way I feel similar, but it's not a big deal to me. I've always been the one that everybody knows, but isn't really popular... if you know what I mean. I take pride in that though... I march to the beat of my own drum; so it doesn't matter to me if others acknowledge how classy I am or not. I feel like I'm my own person and I haven't conformed. It's still fun to read what everyone thinks of others... and it's a positive outlet to all of the negativity that had been going around...
