BLOGGERS COMMENTS--GUILTY AS CHARGED
I received this afternoon a very ugly comment from an "Anonymous" blogger in response to the post about my daughter. Someone who said such vile things to me behind the mask of anonymity while publicly scolding me.
It was chock full of hateful "Shame on you's"...in regards to my daughter and my not being able to buy her a birthday present.
I was also mocked in this hate comment; "Waaa waaa waaaa--oh, somebody please send poor little Jo some money!!!"
I replied but then decided it best to delete their hate--and my subsequent response.
How someone could have so much disdain for someone is beyond me.
I've found it necessary to remove myself from others' blogs as a follower for not liking their content but did so without sending them hate mail. I've also been guilty of commenting on others' blogs--within my own--but again have done so without mentioning names.
To send them hate mail would be cruel and undignified.
Not that I'm always the 'Poster Child' for dignity as this 'Anonymous' blogger pointed out.
THIS, that was posted to me, was quite intentional--and hurtful. Which I suppose was their point.
So, let me clear a few things up to avoid any further misunderstandings:
I have been accused of being 'whiny'.
Gee, you think?
Guilty as charged. The title of my blog is "Diary of A Sad Housewife".
I'm sorry that you, dear 'Anonymous', also think that I have been 'wasteful' with money and then have the audacity to whine about it.
You're certainly entitled to feel that way.
I'm also sorry that you think I am a horrible mother to my daughter and that I should be 'ashamed of myself'.
Who says I'm not ashamed?
She would no doubt agree with you. So, no argument from me on that.
I was also accused of asking fellow bloggers for money in a backhanded way via of my 'whining' about money.
If I came across that way--I am mortified.
For this, I will--and do--apologize.
Never ever was that my intention. I'm actually just the kind of cheeky broad that might come straight out and ask for help, possibly even posting a 'Paypal' link on my blog.
However, I didn't--nor would I.
Our circumstances are such that perhaps I simply don't have the words/intelligence to put things in any other way other than what they are.
It is what it is.
My heartfelt apologies if I came across differently.
I was also told that I should disconnect cable, Internet and such.
FYI: we have a son who just entered college--Internet is vital to his assignments. Now, with that said, do I want to give up the Internet and my blogging? Of course not.
And we recently downgraded our cable package.
Let me reiterate that we don't go out to eat, we don't travel, etc. THIS is our entertainment.
However, if it gets to the point where we absolutely cannot hang onto it--we will certainly make that decision to disconnect--no qualms about it.
Again, guilty as charged.
There were many more accusations and ugly things said. However, I refuse to get into a public tit-for-tat with this person...so, in conclusion dear 'Anonymous', perhaps it's best you take a cue from me and delete yourself from my followers list--if my content makes you that unhappy--I think it's best for you, me and all involved.
Peace, love and happiness,
"Diary Of A GUILTY Housewife"
