Retiring the Irrelevant

For long time readers, I have decided to retire my post from June 2011 titled “Goodbye, Pioneer Woman.” I discuss my reasons for doing so in an updated post under the original title, which you can read by clicking here.

Stop back later this week for exciting news about a tropical honeymoon on the horizon for Mr. and Mrs. Sparky. I can’t wait to tell you about the fabulous trip we have planned!

    Wise decision, Kay. I was surprised that you are still getting hits from that post. It’s been a long time since I’ve thought of PW, much less looked anything up about her, BUT I like how you at least acknowledge the editing of your blog by your removal of a post. (heh heh)

    1. Thanks, Liz. I was getting dozens of hits every day for that post, and I am so far removed from the PW circles that it just makes sense to retire my post. I wanted to write an explanation for why the post is no longer up, lest people think I am retracting what I originally wrote or that the post was removed by outside forces. If a blog is a living entity of sorts, I think it’s important to discuss how and why it’s changing.

    The sheeple are crazy. Sorry you got attacked by them. When you have a blog and people are mean to you on it, it is very hard. They don’t know you in person, don’t look objectively or rationally at the complete picture, and are often simply operating out of their own negative personality issues.

    PW’s phoniness makes me roll my eyes. Her recipes used to be good, but as soon as she started posting more than twice a week, it’s gotten more and more self-aggrandizing, more narcissistic and more obviously simply a corporate brand.
    I can’t wait for the tell-all book that rips the lid totally off of her b.s.

    1. Thanks, Mary. I am trying to keep my blog relevant to my life, and it was time to clean house. I don’t want a huge portion of my blog traffic arriving first at a post that no longer relates to what’s going on for me. The nasty comments (and some were truly horrible) were just a small factor in my decision, but there were a few that really derailed me.

      What I know about the world is this: sometimes it takes a long time, but eventually truth wins out. Thanks for being a genuine person.
