Too Friggin Busy
That should be what I have to say!! I know I'm a few days late, so sue me, I have a life ya know!!

Too Friggin Busy is a blog I have never seen, and so far, I'm not too worried about it!

Template - What the fuck is that purple octopus thing on the header?? Are you purposely trying to scare people off or what? Not to mention, the header is way too far to the right for the template itself. If I were drunk I would be throwing up from trying to figure out where to read! I could also do without the flickr pictures right on top - I know you love your kids, but c'mon! Is that what this whole blog is about??

Content - The answer to that question is a big yes! I was inundated on just the first page of pictures of the little ones... and more little ones... and more little ones... and pictures of Yankees pictures. Ooh, you might just be sorry you got me as a reviewer that is for sure! Until you said you were not a Yankee fan I was going to give you a big fat zero just for that (Die Hard Red Sox Fan HERE) but since my boss might just kick my ass for being that biased, I'll continue on.

I know you're a mom, I'm a mom, but c'mon... if you're going to have this much of a mommy blog it might be best left private for your family and friends. I couldn't get past the first page, I'm sorry, I'm bored already.

In Summation - Not my thing...

Rating - 3 out of 10 - I'm sure some people would love it, probably just people who know you but hey, it's decent for what it is. Get a new template!

The octopus is to represent the blog-owner, because she is too frigging busy it just feels like she has eight "hands."

You call other people stupid, but you are not the most perceptive people yourselves.

Thank you Laitera. I kind of though the busy Octupus and the title TOO FRIGGIN BUSY would have been clear to most.

And for the record, the header is perfectly centered on my laptop. Not sure what your seeing. I have IE.

As for the review, that's fine if it's not for you, but judging a blog from the first page only and not delving into the archives, how can you properly "review" it. Thats kinda like reading the first chapter only of a book and saying it sucked, No?

I have to say I am very disgusted at the reviewers attitude. How can she even judge if she did not look past the first page? Wonder if she has a blog..would love to check it out and critique it.

I think your comments about too friggin busy are rude and inapporiate , sorry your review was nasty and not at all professional ............I like the blog and very opinion is bad!

In my screen, the header is a little to the left. To these nasty reviewers, it's a little to the right. To TFG, it's centered. There are so many factors to consider when evaluating the technicalities of a blog, but they just took one look and bashed the entire blog.

Give them a computer, an internet connection (uber-slow, from what I can deduce) and they think they're experts.

A little knowledge is a dangerous thing. LOL.

If you're going to critique someone else's work, you should first learn to write coherently yourself. Get an education. You have kids? Probably latch key kids, no?

Sigh.... Maybe I'd be more inclined to pay attention to the criticisms if they weren't anonymously sent... all 6 of them. People, if you're going to jump all over our shit, at least have the courtesy to tell us who you are.

People that leave anonymous comments are not worth my time.

And yet you are anonymous yourself! Haha! Still blaming other people for something you are also guilty of.

Instead of focuing on the "anonymity" of your commenters, why don't you read what they actually say. You could learn a lot from what other people say, you know.

- The Laitera. Google me. At least I have a definite identity.

Well since you already have my link and I signed it TFB, I thought it was kinda obvious who the comment was from.

People who give lazy reviews are not worth my time. in TOO FRIGGIN that better?

Oh...I left a comment and forgot to put my name....Darlene...a constant reader of TFB's blog. It should not matter if we are anonymous or not..regardless those are our comments and how we feel. You could review with a little more tact. But my guess is that u are probably a form of trailer park trash. It's like u think u are comediens with all the swearing you put into your are pathetic..your site is pathetic. I could go on but really you are not worth much of my time. If any.

So, let me get this straight. "TFB" has obviously seen our site before, knowing full well that we are NOT always nice. Then SHE decided to take the chance and submit it for review.

Had she gotten a great review, she would have posted good things about us, and raved about how GREAT our site is. Then our site would have mattered to her. It would have mattered to her readers...LOL We'd be SPE-SHULLLL!

However, because one of our reviewers didn't like her suck-ass blog, she decides to pick apart everything that was said, and all of a sudden we "don't matter."

All in all, TFB is the fucking dink-wad that submitted her blog to a site that apparently "doesn't matter." We obviously mattered enough to her to waste her time submitting to us.

Now, she and her "readers" are complaining about a bad review, when she agreed to the review in the first place. C'mon-- you expected us to ooohh and aaaaahh over a site with THIRTY-THREE FUCKING PICTURES ON THE FRONT PAGE ALONE? Gawd.

Did I miss anything?

oh yeah... we could probably "review with a little more tact? "

WHERE THE HELL HAVE YOU BEEN? Have you ever read our site before? Before criticizing us about not reading more than the first page of a shitty blog, maybe you should try reading more than one review.

The blog sucked, and it got reviewed as such. 'Nuff said. If she'd like to re-submit it and try again, I'd be more than happy to take a crack at it! LOL

Or Darlene, you could always submit YOUR blog-- we'd all love to see what blogging goodies you have to offer, too. We obviously matter enough to you that you keep coming back!

Wow bitch fight! I am honestly curious about the blogs of reviewers here since I saw the blogs of the IT2M folks. And they are fantastic as well as showing the credibility of the reviewers there.

It's amazing.

As Dee said, no one puts a gun to someone's head to submit their blog to sites like this. You know the risks you're running before you hit the send key -- why cry foul afterward if the result isn't what you wanted to see? That's why it's called risk -- you may not like the result you get.

And if you don't agree with the aesthetic or style of critique, why submit your blog at all? It means you wouldn't respect a positive review any more than a negative one, so why bother?

Oh and Darlene, resorting to ad hominem attacks? For shame.

I guess I have to speak up - what the hell do you all care what our blogs are? What will that tell you? That in fact we are trailer trash? That we are incoherent and stupid? What will that prove? Nothing! I will still give the same review, and be as bitchy as I want to be. So here ya go - and Diva Dee, don't get pissed, I'm just sick of the drama...

Have at it y'all!

Yes, you did miss something.
My POINT ENTIRELY. I don't care that you gave me a bad review, nor do I care about the score.
I am FULLY AWARE of what I got myself into when I sent my blog in. What I do care about is the fact that you call yourselves blog reviewers..well then review the ENTIRE blog, not just the front page. THATS MY POINT THAT YOU SEEM TO BE MISSING.
I don't care if you still think my blog sucks. At least it was a fair judgment. Its obvious Mommy blogs or photo blogs are not your thing.

Besides, what a small part of the internet thinks of my blog does not define me. I will still sleep at night. That I can promise you.

As for your personal blogs, don't care.
As for negative reviews, don't care.
As for throwing my full name and email addy to the world..don't care. You want my home address to post too?
As for the name calling..I wouldn't expect anything less from you.

Diva you can dish it, but you certainly can NOT take it.

This is truly childish , the chicky who reviewed the blog needs her head screwed on right . MY 2 cents back off and get a life . Go review your own blog ..................and blog off !

OK, to be fair... I went through your blog and read through some of your archives. I would have given it the same score Simone did.

I'm just sayin'-- if the review would have been a good one, and we'd have said "I don't even need to read past the first page because this blog rocks" you'd be shouting it from the rooftops. Because we gave it a bad review, you've spent your whole day continuing to check in here to see what we're talking about...

The first page of your blog is an exact summary of your entire blog. Kids, kids, and more kids. I read through some of it... its a waste of my time to read more of it.

There's plenty of other review sites out there for you to submit to... send yours in and see what they think. I know we won't be the only ones with the same opinion.

I could have sworn this was a site for reviews. Sometimes, reviews are not glowing. Sometimes, a movie reviewer can watch the first 10 minutes of a movie and hate it, even if they don't watch the next 2 hours. Sometimes a book reviewer can hate or love a book after 2 chapters, and not even need to read the whole book to form an opinion.

From Wikipedia:
A review is an evaluation of a publication, such as a movie, video game, musical composition, book, or a piece of hardware like a car, appliance, or computer. In addition to a critical statement, the review's author may assign the work a rating (for instance, one to five stars) to indicate its relative merit.

That is so brave of you Sexy Simone for showing us your blog. Now I respect you more. I used to be a reviewer as well and honestly I dont really like staying anonymous. It makes some of the readers wonder if your blog gives you the right to review other people's blog. I wished most of the reviewers are like that.

Also I suggest that you guys should design your own blog and not buy or ask someone to do it. Because it does reflect on your credibility to criticise people's templates. *wink*

I am sure that she may not have commented on her review had it been positive.
But TFB's point has been lost in the war of name calling. What TFB is asking is the they give each and EVERY Blog a fair chance to be wonderful or sucky!!

So my point is, if you are still reading, is that TFB is actually pleased to get a 3 as she only expected a 2, (and I think that that is unfair as I know her personally, I am a big part of her kids lives and I find her stories charming and whitty!!)
is that moving forward, give a blog at least muti entries before makeing a review, and do a good job! Then, there is not place for retaliation!!! It is all good!!!
