When Blogging Gets Nasty | Blossom vs. People I want to Punch in the Throat
THEN. IN the blue corner comes a blogger that reads red blogger's post about 101 ways to be creative with your Elf on a Shelf and in her words "got really pissed off". So she proceeds to blogger punch red blogger in the nose. She gives her name, links to her blog and then goes on for paragraph after paragraph quoting various ideas from red bloggers blog and then slamming them into the wall. She is mean and sarcastic and whiny and petty. ...and funny. Yes, blue blogger is funny. She's hilarious. ...and if she hadn't named red blogger and linked to her blog and then stolen her content, perhaps it would be ok. ...but it isn't ok. It is mean and sarcastic and whiny and petty.
SO. IN the red corner, red blogger takes down her blog. She states on twitter that she is "unplugging". For a moment on facebook, she is happy and excited to have 500 new "likes"! Where did those come from? Then she sees why. ...and she is hurt. Who wouldn't be? I would be.
THEN. IN the blue corner, she keeps punching red blogger while she is down. Calling her "whiny" on facebook and flaming the fires of hundreds of commenters to mock and belittle red blogger.
SO. Beating up bloggers isn't new. Mean bloggers have been doing it since blogging began, but usually they take on the big bloggers. They take on the bloggers making tons of money. In this case, blue blogger took on a blogger that isn't making millions. She took on a blogger that was trying to do something fun for her kids and share her ideas. She took on a blogger and won. She won because red blogger took her blog down.
