A couple days ago I got an email from a dude named Guy at these guys...
What is Alltop? All the best top stories. It's an aggregation of what's the best out there in various categories, from news feeds to blogs. I'm included in their asthma section. I have to be honest and say this bothers me.
I mean it's flattering and all, but in spite of the name Asthmagirl... I'm not all about asthma all the time. Really, this blog is like holding a mirror up to my life. It reflects all different facets of me. When my asthma flares up, it reflects that. But there is quite a bit of my life that I can happily(?) coexist with asthma, and it's not worth discussing, so I don't. I talk about nonsense. Compare that to my friend Asthmamom who is all about the asthma and whose blog is one of the best asthma resources around. She's on Alltop and she deserves to be.
So I kind of feel like a fraud. Like I don't deserve to be there. Who wants to click on asthmagirl thinking you're going to get lung wisdom and end up reading about hair issues, or football games or chihuahuas or Noble Pig's muffins? Well, maybe the muffins!
So even though Guy invited me to throw a badge up on my blog, I'm reluctant. Even though they have some kick ass badges!
What do you guys think?
PS~ Hey Guy... seriously. It doesn't drive people to my site. Except you. Maybe folks don't want to read about asthma at all. Or Chihuahuas! Peace!
