Summer Is Finally Here!

Monday, June 22, 2009 3

Hi everyone, it's been about a week since I posted last so I figured I better get my butt in here and write something. I have recently taken a part time job out in the "real world" which is my excuse for not writing as much as I should be :)

It's great to get out and be more active, espicially with the nice warm weather we've been having. Though at this point, it's only a few days a week. I am also entertaining the idea of looking into school again... Not too sure what direction I would like to head in quite yet but that will be determined with a bit of research I suppose.

Other than that, not much is new in the land of Bettie, unfortunately there have been no funny mishaps or wacky adventures for me to tell you about. Which really, is a bit dull as there's usually something going on around here! Boooooring lol ... ah well, maybe I should count my blessings that life is "normal" for a change and just go with the flow of things!

I'll catch up with you all later on this week ;)

How Selfish Can You Be???

Wednesday, June 17, 2009 3
I was in a message board group that I frequent quite a bit and came across a thread that showed a link to a story that simply blew me out of the water. There is a woman out there in the blogging community that should be hanging her head in utter shame for what she has done.

Beccah Beushausen, a 26-year-old social worker from the Chicago area created a blog about being an expectant mother of a terminally ill baby. From what I gather from this article she kept this horrific lie up as long as possible because she recevied so much sympathy from her readers. By the end of it all she had managed to gain one million hits on her blog from people supporting her and coming to read all the new entries about her "terrible situtation".

She claims that she was getting 100,000 hits per week and this somehow justified her continuing on with this outragious and extremely sickening and selfish game she was playing. As a blogger, I too understand the importance of organic traffic but my god .. what a way to obtain stats!

I am truly outraged by this story and deeply disappointed that someone would go this far to obtain popularity within the blogging community. I would like to say to you Beccah, in case you ever come across my blog that you are a disappointment to the human race and should hang your head in utter shame for what you have done ..

Even more shocking, is the fact that this woman is a social worker! She spends her days listening, consolling and helping those in emotional distress learn to be happier, healthier and live better lives .. I truly hope this woman looses her position as a social worker and has her liscense revoked.

Shame on you ....
