I follow a boatload of sewing blogs. I am a rabid consumer of all things sewing! I love it!
I am not a regular reader at sewcountrychick because I was a little put-off once by a comment she made regarding 'visible hems'. I have great appreciation for blind hems but somethings are just fine with a top-stitched hem! I felt like..."Aren't we on a high-horse..." about it.
Lots of bloggers are calling GOMI out lately and yep, I've lurked the site. Some stuff is ridiculous, some is funny, some is blunt and direct and borderline mean. I think it's much easier to be put off if you read something about yourself or a blogger friend -- I am way too low on the totem pole to be mentioned there, I'm sure, as they focus mainly on bloggers who are monetized or the uber popular bloggers -- but there is some critical discussion about the sewing community there that you can't really disagree with.
Today, Justine posted an open letter to GOMI of sorts... HERE
I was reading it and I was sort of following along, nodding my head...
My comment (it's long - but y'all know I'm long-winded!)
Well said. But people aren’t fat because they’re made that way
