Is it possible to get into a blog fight? If so, I think I may have just been in one!! And I got knocked out!!
Anyone who KNOWS me, knows I dont fight, I dont argue and I dont hurt peoples feelings!
Here is the Introduction:
I was replying to a comment on my blog. I went to this persons site( there are multiple members on the particular “family” site) and saw my meatloaf recipe but didint see the usual credit that everyone gives where credit is due in the blogging world.
I will say the person whom I actually left the comment for was nice, it was the other members of her blog that were very hateful and hurtful.
I am NEVER going to disclose the name of the blog because unlike other folks..I am NOT MEAN AND HURTFUL!
But please read everything!
Please tell me if I was way off base. AND BE HONEST..just not mean!
Was I mean?
Did I deserve the ATTACKS?
I made sure I copied and pasted the conversation as it happened in WORD(for accuracy)I though this whole situation would make for a good read!!
Have 5 minutes? Take a seat, keep you hands inside the ride at all times, your in for a bumpy ride!!
“I am sorry that you didnt like my meatloaf. I sure looks pretty. If you dont mind..and goodness I dont mean this to sound rude at all..I mean it in the most nicest voice..but typing doesnt always come across nice..I would have soooo loved for you to put a link to my site or say that you got the recipe off my site..hey even if it was nasty..its always cool to give props where props are due! Again..PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE dont take what I said badly. That meatloaf was a result of many trial and error loafs and to get credit for it would be awesome!On another note…I havent seen The Real Housewifes of Orange County yet. But I did google her photo..she is very dolled up in all the photos. I am lucky to put lipstick on in the mornings!!LOLI am glad that you enjoy my blog and that you left a comment on my Weight Watcher Wednesday Post. I blame my good photos on my camera and my new fancy Lowel Ego light. Before I started my blog I used a Point and Shoot digital camera and missed 99% of the photos of my kids because the camera was soooo slow and they photos were soooo blurry! Sorry again if I came off rude.:)

Leslie- If I knew how to link to your blog, I would have. I haven’t figured out all the ins and outs of this thing yet. So sorry if I offended you by using your recipe without giving credit. What’s funny is that my cousin, ****, emailed me and said that was her mom’s recipe-exactly. Funny how that happens. If anyone else wants to check out Leslie’s blog- its definitely worth it- its:thehungryhousewife.blogspot.com

“Oh yeah, and the meatloaf wasn’t “nasty”- it was totally edible. I think anyone that likes meatloaf will really enjoy this recipe
“Oh it is soooooo no biggie! That is weird that **** mom makes the exact meatloaf..down to the amounts???Wow that is crazy since it took me 12 years of marriage and my husband loving meatloaf to come up with it!LOLAnd see, I didnt want you to think that you offended me, because you didnt. It took me a while to figure out how to put a link into my posts. Here is how ya do it..example..say you wanted to put a link for Amazon in your post. You would type the word Amazon, them go to Amazon.com(in a differnt window), right click and copy the address from the address bar. Then go back to your post, highlight the word Amazon, click on the world looking thing w/ the paper clippy thing ontop, then paste the address you copied. and bam you should have a link in your post! Did I make any sense??Let me know if it works for you.I did read Rose’s post obviously directed at me..again no biggie, I’m a big girl! LOLBut I suppose it is in the “Unwritten Blogger Code of Ethics” to credit your source of where you saw the recipe..it only take 2 seconds. I never go to the ancient history books to see where a recipe was first originated from I just always site from where I actually saw it from. And so do the majority of food bloggers out there. It certainly didnt upset me..but I do know of some bloggers out there that the whole situation would really get their panties in a bunch!’

“Leslie, sweetheart, it really is no big deal that about a million people already make what it took you 12 years to figure out. Like I said this is a family blog. We aren’t saving the world or anything like that. If it would make you feel better we can take your meatloaf recipe down and put up mom’s. Ok?”

“Leslie,Go put some more makeup on and get off of this blog. I would advise you to cut back on the bleach. It apparently has done something to your manners.Go private. How did this Bimbo get on here anyway?”
“Goodness me..I hate the computer..things always come out wrong. No please dont take the recipe down. It truly doesnt bother me. I think it is wonderful that you guys have a great family blog with sharing of recipes.I just know there are some really uptight folks out there that actually will threaten legal action if your post something of “theirs” without even asking permission.ANd they actually have some sort of program that tracks if people copy things off thier blogs. I know it is crazy. My reason for the first comment was just to bring that to ***** attention. I meant no harm nor did I mean up upset anyone. I am not the type of person to stir things up, and I am sorry that I did. I just assumed folks knew to credit the source, that is all. And it feels nice when people give you props. I am sure anyone would be happy to see something they had made, posted somewhere with their name next to it. That someone actually thought it looked good enough to try it themselves. Kinda makes you feel all warm and fuzzy inside..and that you did a good job!”
Why in the world would you attack me like that? You do not know me. I didnt say anything nasty about anyone. And again I didnt mean to upset anyone. That was really uncalled for. I thought I was very nice in everything I wrote. Never ONCE did I ever say anything mean.I could say something about your manners..but I dont know you. So that is not my place.And by the way..I wear mascara and lipgloss…thats too much makeup?? Wow.You sure know how to hurt a persons feelings”

“Peace out skank’
Ok..that’s the end of the Leslie Bashing! Close your mouths now!
Was I way off base???? Did I sound mean??
I though I was very apologetic that I might have offended anyone!
My blood pressure is a bit elevated right now. I cant believe people can be so mean and say hurtful things to someone who they know nothing about. Oh well I suppose my parents raised me well and taught me morals. And if I dont have anything nice to say..dont say anything at all!
I do know one thing, I wouldn’t want to be in THAT family.
P.S..Too much makeup??? Are you serious? Like I said mascara and lipstick…I suppose all BIMBOS wear mascara and lipgloss!!!
