I must admit I'm a little nervous to see that one of the people checking out my blog is http://uglycostumegoddess.blogspot.com/ If she's sending people over here to get costume tips that's great. But if she's sending people here to laugh at me and make fun of me, that makes me a bit queasy. I couldn't find any reference to this blog on her blog, but then again I didn't glean through it with a fine tooth comb. I am glad to see http://www.bhuz.com/ on my list of visitors as I used to be a member of that site and think highly of it.
One of the turn offs in the belly dancing world is the high level of criticism and even cruelty that I've run across from time to time. I try not to let it get me down.
