my blog is the bad mom version of 19 kids and counting

So after I discovered that something I wrote was posted on another blog (Rage Against the Minivan), I was immediately seized with a feeling that my blog was not ready for such a large (relatively speaking) amount of traffic.

Usually I don't have much activity, which is ok, because I don't always have time to comb my blog's hair, if you know what I mean. But having a couple hundred visitors pop over without prior knowledge kind of made me feel like someone accidently opened the door while I was using the bathroom.  (Do I ever shy away from a poop reference?  No, I don't think I do.)

You know how usually your house is fairly clean and orderly and you live in the boondocks so you don't really have neighbors but every now and then someone will knock on your door and you will answer wearing mismatched pajamas and no bra?  And if that someone is a friend and they come inside and then you realize that your generally neat house looks like you have 19 kids and counting, only the bad-mom version?

That's how I felt when I saw that I had lots of extra blog traffic with no prior warning.

I would have tried to at least thrown the dirty dishes into the bath tub.  Or lit a candle to cover up the stench of the cooked broccoli I left in the garbage can overnight. Or had a decent post waiting to be discovered by the masses     the hoardes   the extra people who visited my blog.

Oh well.  It is what it is.  The ketchup here at KWTF might be a little crusty from time to time.  It might be a little runny or even generic.  But it's ketchup, nonetheless, and everything is better with ketchup.


  1. I love your blog, and never thought of it as being 'messy'. However, I feel I must say that chocolate cake is not good with ketchup, probably not ice cream either, or pancakes, or...well, you get the picture. :P

  2. Thank you! I agree...there are many things that ketchup does not make better. Maybe I need to think of a new tagline.....
