dear martha

Dear Martha,

I grew up watching your shows just about everyday.  My mother was, and always will be, a Martha follower and lover.  We have a million Martha Stewart cookbooks, my mom is always saying things are "good things" and admiring her website.  You were an inspirational woman.  You grew up in New Jersey, you built an empire out of nothing.  You created a magazine, you were a mother, you were then a single mother, you created books and television shows and websites and inspired a generation of women to make things from scratch. 

Martha, I admired you growing up.  Then the cracks in your perfect façade started showing.  It started with the rude comments about people in interviews.  Then moved on the charges of fraud and a prison sentence.  Now, you continue with your elitist attitude and inappropriate behavior around other celebrities (including this interview where you told Bethenny, a self-made millionaire, that she was a pest).  With your recent comments, I'm totally over you. 

In a recent interview, you called out all of us "non-expert"bloggers.  But, I don't care. 

I don't care because I don't blog for you.  I don't care because I don't blog for my readers.  I don't care because I blog for me.  I blog because I love life.  I blog because I love connecting with other people.  I blog to find inspiration.  Essentially, I blog for me.  "Who are those bloggers?!" you asked in your interview?  We're empowered individuals who aren't afraid to share our lives with the world.  We celebrate each other, help each other and have an amazing community.

So, feel free to hate us Martha and are not expert selves.  We'll get along fine without you.  I mean, we've made it this far.

P.S. I love this Post from Lisette about this situation.  You go girl!
