For realz ...

I recently received an email from a stranger. I think her name is Whitney.

Her email simply said this, "I have a stupid question. Is your blog for real?"


To be honest, I am not quite sure what she is asking.


Real as in it ... is it an actual a blog?


Well, yes. It is an actual blog.


 Real as in ... does the stuff I write actually happen?


Well, yes. The stuff I write actually does happen.

In fact, the following responses are from real people who really read this real blog who can verify of it's realnessThese respondents are not actors and they have no been paid for their endorsement of this blog ... Because, like, why would I pay them?


Ahem.

"Mindy Thornley's blog is one of the most real blogs I've ever read! I would describe it with the following words: actual, authentic, certain, concrete, existing, factual, honest, irrefutable, legitimate, original, palpable, present, sincere, substantive, tangible, true, undeniable, undoubted, unfeigned, valid, and veritable. In fact, 9 out of 10 dentists agree that Mindy's blog even prevents cavities!" - Mike

"Mindy's blog has helped me lose weight. It was mostly her posts about stretching. I realized I could stretch ANYWHERE, such as on a montain, which then motivated me to get out and go hiking and stretching. I've lost 100lbs in two months! Thanks to the wise words of Mindy Marie." - Claire

"I would be so ungrateful if I didn't let everyone know how thankful I am for Mindy's blog.  I believe in her blog with every fiber of my being." -  Avree

"Mindy has saved my life from total and utter destruction.  Without my daily dose of her humor and passion for pink I would have imploded.  I was in a deep, dark place until I found Mindy's blog.  My life will never be the same." - Shan

"I read Mindys blog daily.  It makes my horrible life seem not quite as horrible. I’m Steve Murphy and I approve of the messages written on this blog by one Miss Mindy Marie." - Steve
  
"This blog has changed everything for me. Seriously, I in some way feel like I am the reason this blog exists. In my opinion, that sets it apart from every other blog. When you read it and think, "Wait, did I write that? and then you realize that you didn't." Wow, that's powerful. I guess what I am trying to say is that I wouldn't be on this site reading Mindy's stuff if it wasn't for the fact that she posted it." - Erika


"Mindy Marie Thornley's blog is hands down my favorite blog to read. Her brutal honesty mixed with her fun sense of humor always puts a smile on my face. Keep the posts coming!" - Allison

"Mindy’s blog has helped me to understand I don’t need to be crafty to have a wonderful and fulfilling life.  I used to think if I didn’t create cute little crafts I saw on Pinterest, then I was a complete failure ... I now realize that it isn’t true.  Thank you for showing me the light Mindy." - Brandon

I think these unpaid testimonials not only show that my blog is real, but that it changes lives every.single.day.

So, Whitney, keep reading. And wait for the changes to be seen in your life too! 


***
It must be said! It is
very difficult to actually post a blog like this. It feels very ... arrogant {even though it's clearly facetious}. But I am kinda on an arrogant kick as of late. I was talking to a friend yesterday and said, "He just didn't even seem to care that I walked into the room. And that bugged me!" Friend laughed and said, "That is the most arrogant thing I have ever heard you say!" As long as I am off my offensive kick, I guess I am fine with a joking-arrogant kick that has the potential of coming off as real. ;)

Dang it, I'm slow. While life did get in the way of me writing a testimonial, it hasn't gotten in the way of reading your blog. I mean, can life go on without reading Mindy's blog?

I want to add my testimonial:

Haha. That is so funny that someone asked that! But...people do send very odd emails sometimes!
