Yes a day late and a dollar short but HAPPY Fall Ya'll!
I am so happy it is cooling and fall is arriving! I love the change of seasons!
The kind of pinch where you just have to stand up for yourself and stand up for principals and being forced resign.
I hate that I really do.
Yesterday I was in a contest and in the middle of the voting and the contest they erased ALL votes and changed the rules....RIGHT in the middle!
Now it is NOT about winning, I NEVER expect to "win" but its' about PRINCIPALS, you cannot change a contest mid stream and expect me to sit down quietly and say "OK no prob BOB!" It's not about my work I know my work is good! It's just about not being fair or right.
I should expect it I know, I should be used to it
but I always go into places with a clean slate and expect a fair balanced place.
I should have known better. *kick myself*
Now I am not against changing the way they vote but I AM against changing it in the MIDDLE of the contest!! That is not fair or even warranted!
I was in a private forum before where they did this often!
If they did not like how things were going they just changed it!
And voting was never based on work but who had the best buddy with the owner.
Now I know y'all have been through this time and it me again if you have been around on the boards! And even though it sucks I still resign standing on my principals and integrity. I look like like a whiny bitch. BUT how does that old saying go?
YOU'VE got to stand for something or You'll fall for anything!
You've got to be your own man, not a puppet on a string.
Now i live my life in truth and integrity and it sucks sometimes I tell you what!
So I resigned from the bogus contest and the site that does not have integrity.
And I will not be recommending them on the side of my blog either.
I did in fact receive a comment yesterday on my blog from them saying they were sorry I was offended that they changed the rules in the middle of the game.
"Creative Scrappers said...
I am sorry to see you are offended that the voting procedure was changed. You're layout was beautiful Pinky and I don't think you should be worried!!"
Well its not about worrying about my LO or my work it's about integrity and the lack of it.
And since they have a store how can I shop at a store where the person who runs it has a huge lack of honesty? That to me is a dangerous combination!'
You only have your honesty....specially in a business!
Now I do apologize if I mislead anyone to join there.
I usually check out a place before recommending
but you never know what will happen these days.
Have a beautiful day...
this is me stepping off my soap box! LOL
