This blog usually carries a PR Rank of 3.
Not that this matters much since very few companies are interested in working with me, ya know, since I don’t have 6 gabillion pageviews a month… and that’s okay.
About one month ago I noticed that my PR Rank dropped down to 2.
How does Google come up with this stuff?
I mean, I guess I have been blogging less, but I have to prioritize. Money from my 2nd job or blogging for fun? Sadly, my family doesn’t run on my “for fun” blogging habit alone.
I think it’s fun to review products and let you guys know what I think about them… and yeah, getting free stuff for my kids is cool too. But I’d like to think that people read this blog for my content and that people don’t stick around because they want to see what I’m giving away next. THAT is kinda my thought process about blogs with double-digit thousands of pageviews. When you’re giving away Dysons and Whirpool washing machines and cars and houses and a million dollars well no FRIGGIN duh you’re gonna have lots of pageviews and a high PR rank.
I wish I could say that I was jealous, but I don’t have time to be. I HAVE BILLS TO PAY.
It’s too much damn work to be a “popular mom blogger.”
Ain’t nobody got time for that.
Speaking of bills and money- The biggest drop that I’ve experienced recently, though, came when I tried to refinance my car and my bank of over ten years let me know that my credit score was “not good.”
I almost lost my shit.
Not to toot my own damn horn, but my credit score has been really good. For years. It’s not black American Express card fabulous, but it’s not crappy and more importantly it’s mine. I worked hard, paid bills on time blah blah blah.
Well, my credit has tanked y’all. And I’m not afraid to say it because I haven’t **technically** done anything wrong.
According to Equifax, I don’t use my credit card enough. (Hello, I’m trying to pay it off. NO I’m not using it!!) It’s probably been over a year since I’ve used it. My credit score has dropped almost 200 points people. And that’s the only change- that I haven’t used my credit card.
I’m so done with this country telling me that NOT using my credit card so that I can pay it off is bad and using my credit card to put myself into more debt is good.
And why do credit scores hold so much weight any damn way? There should be more factors involved than a computer equation that comes up with a three-digit number for my spending habits.
Good thing I’m not planning on being the next super blogger.
Nor are we planning on buying a house anytime soon.
So go ahead PR rank- drop away.
Credit score? I’m workin’ on ya and at the end of the day? I can always buy things on payments.
Thank God for Bill Me Later.
