The other day, Karen and I were talking and I declared that I have no intention of helping people who are not nice. People have to be NICE!!
Since that day, many NOT NICE people have contacted me for help. Many of those not nice people are coming from the everything typepad blog that featured our blog as an example of a custom designed blog. The emails from strangers go like this:
Stranger: How do I add a sidebar widget?
No greeting, no thanks, no hey your blog is cool.
I respond: Hi! Log into your account then look at the HELP section. Typepad has great help sections! Good luck!
The stranger responds: But what if it is an amazon widget?
I respond: Hi! As I said before, check out the help sections, they are really easy to use. Good luck!
Stranger responds: Fuck you. You are no help at all.
And then there are many,many,many questions (not all of them sugar coated) that are coming to us as a result of Journal Revolution and who is featured in the book and whether or not we are lesbians or if we have conspiracy theories. Sometimes, sisters really means sisters. And sometimes, a book about self expression and art is really a book about self expression and art. We are also getting many, many, many super sweet-rolled-in-reese's peanut butter cups questions and comments which we LOVE. THANK YOU. Keep those coming!
We're going to try to answer some of these questions in a laughy video blog tomorrow.
