So today I thought I would sit down and just tell you a bit about Betty. You might not care, but I have had a couple of requests to do a little write-up about myself. I tend to not do things like this because I am a very personal person, believe it or not! I am too old to count on two hands and I live with my wonderful husband, Mr. Bite. We live in a little part of North Carolina called Creston. It is in the mountains, so at the moment it is really freaking cold outside. lol.
I started blogging a couple of months ago, to help better pass my time. I love to shop and figured maybe my thoughts might help someone make that special purchase. Some would say that I am “addicted to shopping”, but I do have an addictive personality. I love to blog about products that I find on the web that I think my readers might enjoy. I do, honestly, try to avoid things that I don’t think would either, be a good product or a good fit for us. Thank goodness, so far I have been lucky enough not to find a really awful product. If I remember right, I only had one that actually I had an allergic reaction to and this was actually something I had bought to blog about.
About three and a half years ago, I became ill with something, I would not wish on my worst enemy. Doctors don’t know what it is, so I have not been back. I lost over one hundred pounds since I became ill, and now just try my damnedest to stay over one hundred pounds. I have been told that I am anorexic, I had a virus that just wrecked my stomach, I have been cursed, hexed and I am possessed. Along with other things. If you know me and how I loved to eat you know I am not anorexic. I had no virus before this happened and I hope that I am not hexed,but you never know.
Other than sitting here blogging there is really nothing else I can do any longer. It sucks! I try to always put on a happy face and never show how I really feel. Since I do this, I have been told that I am severely depressed,because I smile too much. What else and I to do? Sit and cry? Bitch all day long on facebook that I hurt so bad I want to go to the ER?
So I think that about sums it all up! I am just an average person, trying her hardest not to fad away. I have learned over the years on the internet, that there are so great people out there. Some of which have become a great motivation in my life. When I had to stop going to college due to my illness and all the surgeries, I was really down on myself. It was something that I really wanted to do. Just random people have helped me with their words.
I do hope that you really enjoy my blog. I do try my best to get you information you might want to see and products you might want to know more about. As the New Year rolls in, I hope for even bigger, better things to come. Most of all I want to thank each and every one of you for all the support you have shown my blog. When I started this in about, June, I think it was, till about October, Bites Reviews You Can Use had only 200 subscribers and about 3,000 hits a month. Since then we have grown to over 1,000 subscribers to the newsletter and over 10,000 hits per month. I am so happy for the growth and hope to continue to learn and grow!
