{the lessons} 4 Things My Grandmother Taught Me About Beauty

by Rachel on August 1, 2012

“‘You don’t pluck your eyebrows. You pluck a chicken.’ This is what my grandmother told me as she tweezed my eyebrows for the first time. I was unsatisfied by my bushy brows and went to her when my mom wasn’t around to ask if she’d do something about them.”

I’d really rather get the link to these in a tweet. It is completely obnoxious to have my news feed clogged with your links to other articles. That’s lovely that you are getting other writing jobs, but this is not content. I am taking you out of my reader because I will not be providing pageviews for no content. Please stop- or just add these links at the bottom of a post with real content!

Annabelle — I’m posting the links here because not everyone follows me on Twitter or Facebook (or even uses these sites), and not everyone uses an RSS reader. I’m sorry that these posts bothered you, but I can assure you that I’m not doing it for pageviews; it’s because this week, this is my content, even if the bulk of it doesn’t live here.

I’m one of those people. I have links to blogs in my favorites folder and I don’t understand readers. So I totally don’t mind the links at all, I just like to read your writing and I enjoy beauty articles but I don’t always go to these other sites. Just keep doing what you’re doing. ANd what would be the big deal about page views anyway, geez
