You know the people that sit behind their computer screens, who like to prey on people? Prey on people who have success or seem happy, only to try to bring them down to their pitiful level? The people who call out and humiliate people who work hard and try hard. The cowards of this world.
I luckily had a very sweet reader send me to a forum on Gomiblog.com ( don’t even go there, it’s a very sad site ) of this person belittling every area of my life. It’s actually kind of funny because the only thing they got right is that yes, I’ve gained a few pounds. But it seemed to bother this person more than it has bothered me.
Before I elaborate on this disgusting post, I’ll post a photo of it below so you can be the judge.
“This blog reminds me of The Rugged Home blog- she used to have a super cool page of their furniture they make and now it’s a bunch of useless shit and her trying to get free stuff from brands while trying to look well offffff naaaah uhhhh you aren’t fooling anyone. She has gained a numerous amount of lbs so I’m thinking she must be preggers and maybe that will put her off of blogging because all she posts about now is her stupid essential oils….feel bad for her kids she seems so absorbed in her social media life. She doesn’t even posts IG pics outside of her living room get a life and quit the blog life XD , THIS BLOG IS TOTS A GOMI
W/ love from Sask <3″
“As to my above blurb here is the link to her blog if u want to see the junk she shares get ready for a million spam ads she set up—–
First off, I want you to take a look at this photo of my family and I.
I’m a real human being, with feelings, thoughts and dreams. My husband and kids mean everything to me, hence the constant long hours and days at my computer. I want a better life for us. I want to give them everything they want. I’m not going to sit around all day and wait for life to hand me money. No. It’s been 16 hour days on my computer, and in between the constant work, snuggling my kids boo-boos, breastfeeding my daughter, teaching my boys right from wrong and answering email after email and running my Rugged Rooster company. It has been exhausting, but it will be worth it. I do spend a lot of time on my computer. I do it because this is my job and I can bet you that I make a heck of a lot more than you do, but only because I’ve put hard work in. Many late nights and stressful days. But it has been worth it and my work is now starting to pay off. I don’t have the luxury of just being a mom. I have to work. I have to help pay bills.
Seeing as you have so much time to write on these forums, I highly doubt you even understand what hard work entails.
When you said that I try to fool the world into thinking I’m rich? I find this comical. If you even knew me, you would know that I wear my heart on my sleeve. People know what’s up in our lives. They know that we work hard to provide the necessities for our kids. I almost take it as a compliment that you say this as it shows that my decorating makes our home look more high end than it is. I’ve stated in numerous posts that we live in an old farmhouse – I mean, what is glamorous about that? My whole site is about how to decorate and build on the dime.
When you said that I looked like I’ve piled on the pounds and that I must be pregnant. What in the actual world is wrong with you? Do you think that it’s okay to scrutinize someones body. God made our bodies to be loved and treated with respect and I was doing completely fine until you came around and announced to the world that I have gained weight. But guess what?
I’ve gained weight from spending more time with my family this year which was a huge priority of mine. Yes we like to eat and eat. It’s what we do. We love having homemade pizza making nights, or making muffins in the morning and if that makes me gain weight? Well, that is worth it. It’s worth it to teach my children that body image isn’t everything. That you need to love yourself unconditionally regardless of your size. You should learn this, it might make you a happier person.
I’m not going to lie to you and tell you your comments didn’t hurt me. Oh you can bet that I had a good cry. Because they hurt deep. But do you know what I realized? That your ugly words didn’t have anything to do with me. I have no idea who you are or what you are and you have no idea who I am. These ugly words only display your heart and who you are. You sit behind your computer screen and make disgusting accusations about people you don’t know and I’m sure you’ve done this many times. You pick on people because you can’t stand what is inside of you. It’s not okay to do this. It is online bullying. If you don’t like my blog anymore, don’t read it! It’s really that simple. In the last two months my readership has gone up 1027% according to Google Analytics, so I’m sure I wont miss you as a reader.
The ads? Well, I actually don’t have that many ads. But, I get paid anywhere from 500 – 1200.00 a month for having these little “annoyances” on my blog. They don’t seem to annoy anyone but you as my subscription list has been on the steady incline.
Lastly, seeing as you seem to hate my essential oils, you should get some. It would make you a much happier person.
Do yourself and me a favour and unsubscribe if you haven’t already and be on your merry way and please, never treat someone else this way again. Never pick apart their happiness to make yourself feel better. It’s wrong and pitiful.
Shame on you.
