Trust Your Instincts, originally uploaded by ashleyg.

This is kind of an embarrassing post, but I took down the FAQ post because while a lot of you asked some wonderful, wonderful questions, my inkling that I might be misunderstood and that mean comments would come my way was completely correct. I’m still making the section, and the questions asked will be answered, but I took the post down because it sucks to have an awful feeling in the pit of your stomach every time you check your email.

I try very hard to not let mean comments get to me, but the truth of the matter is that I’m just terrible at it, they eat away at me. I wanted to make an FAQ section for FUN and for new readers to get to know me better, and because sometimes I’m busy and I feel bad for not getting back to people right away. (I say BUSY because I have a full time job on top of this blog and my shop, not because I’m busy answering hundreds of emails that come my way with questions – that is not the case.)

You can always, always ask me questions in any of my posts and I never want to limit the dialogue that I have with my readers. I’ve met some of the most amazing people I know through blogging, and if one of us hadn’t reached out to the other, those relationships wouldn’t exist.

I guess this is another case of me learning that I need to trust my first feelings and my instincts. Oh and that I need to get my own gang to beat up mean commenters. For Me, For You gang, who’s in? Actually I know a lot of bloggers who need that, so let’s start a mean commenter blog gang! (really annoyed I can’t embed that)
