Oh my gosh, do you guys DELIVER!
THANK YOU for all the incredible zit advice in my last post!
Long story short, I woke up a-week-ago-today, with the most ginormous hormonal cyst right in the smack dab center of my chin. And TODAY is our engagement shoot session.
And so, naturally, I was freaking out because my chin had sprouted a literal tomato, and I was fearing for the worst.
Let’s just say that the sage advice, offered in the comments section was PRICELESS — and I thank you!! I took several suggestions, and let’s just say that today, “big bertha” has shrunken down to little more than a minuscule bug bite. I’m about to go get ready for our photoshoot at sunset, and I am just over the moon with excitement.
I’ve decided to just go into it having fun! I’m taking pictures with the love of my life on a bright sunny day in a beautiful (err….sometimes)…city! What more could a gal ask for!
Yesterday morning, I woke up, opened up my Pinterest account like I do every morning, only to get an error message that my profile had been deactivated.
My heart dropped. This is concerning because Pinterest is a huge source of my income. I have over 2.2 million monthly views on that platform (and if you’d like to follow me, I’d be greatly appreciative), and to lose that revenue stream would be, truly detrimental.
I emailed them, dug deeper, and researched WHY THE HECK my platform was deactivated…and the answer was that it “violated community guidelines.”
But it’s a frightening thing isn’t it? That here we are in America, and just because you hold a traditional moral value, you’re censored as being harmful to society?!
Welcome to the home of the free….
It just makes me really upset. What is the world going to look like in 5 or ten years…or heck, 5 or ten months…when all that’s allow to be read, viewed, listened to or streamed is woke garbage that teaches that down is up, wrong is right, and Christian moral values are bigoted, hateful and dangerous?
I suspect that private platforms like Daily Wire Plus, or Parler, or even DuckDuckGo are going to see a rise in popularity and traffic, as people are just plain sick and tired of being told by radicals of what and how to think.
And further to this, I also suspect that given all the extreme backlash over the overturning of Roe v. Wade, many companies have broadcast that they will pay for the travel expenses or medical costs of having an abortion. Companies are making it loud and clear where they stand on the issue, and I foresee that people are going to start voting with their pocketbooks.
I mean, my family…exclusively Kroger shoppers for, no exaggeration: 40 years…we have stopped shopping at Kroger after they recently came out last month as joining the list of companies now covering abortion travel costs.
The divide in this country is continuing to go deeper and deeper and deeper. And I just don’t know where all of this leads.
I did end up getting my Pinterest page reactivated. I emailed them probably 10 different times yesterday, and they finally conceded that it was “a mistake” and they apologized for the inconvenience.
But I will say, it does make me wonder, and definitely makes me keep my eyes open.
My question for you is, are you investing in any alternative media sources? Do you foreseeing doing so in the future? Are your purchasing habits being influenced by a company’s stance on these hot button issues?
I know that for me, when I have kids, I am for sure going to be having a very limited list of channels we’re going to watch…and Disney will not be one of them.
Let me know what you think! And if you could spare a follow on my Pinterest page, it would REALLY mean a lot — it helps keep this blog going! (And you get amazing video content over there too!)
