I'm going to take a break from the blog today. A reader of IBBB, Melissa, has passed away from complications of cancer. Melissa had been reading IBBB for a while now and loved my ridiculous Hills recaps. She'd always chime in with some funny comments, that were pretty much funnier than what I was writing. Even when she was living with cancer and going in and out of the hospital she always kept a positive and upbeat attitude.
I didn't personally know Melissa.....just from this site. We exchanged emails once in a while, mainly making fun of The Hills, but I had always admired her positive frame of mind. A while back I tossed around the idea of shutting down the blog and later that day I noticed I was getting some traffic from this random messageboard. When I went to it I realized it was an online cancer support group and Melissa had posted a link to my Hills recaps and all the people on the messageboard were cracking up over my site. It reminded me why I started this blog, which was to make people laugh. Period. I never wanted or cared to really make any money out of it. I just wanted to make some people laugh, make myself laugh, and hopefully one day be able to somehow break in the entertainment industry.
Even though Melissa is not with us anymore, I will always look to her when I need to remember to be strong and really put things in perspective. Life is about life....and not the small things that we allow to weigh us down.
I'll be back on Monday to help rot your brain with my witty banter and craptastic jokes.www.myspace.com/ImBringingBloggingBack
