You know who you are…
To everyone else, I have some explaining to do. Last night I took my website down because I reached a level of fear that made me feel I needed to shut down and go into hiding. Today I have rethought it all, and decided it’s not worth it. My website is my public space, where I blog about my not-so-private matters and while I don’t advertise myself in order to build a big audience, I do like knowing that my friends read and that I even get the occasional laugh out of them. I’m not closing down myself on account of some jerk with nothing better to do but harass people online.
To the person in question, and all of her readers that are coming over from her site through broken links: I took the blog post down. She wrote a scathing blog post about me because of my entry for The Pioneer Woman’s grilling contest and basically tore me apart. She directly linked an image of my husband and I (in which I looked phenomenal, I might add) which I immediately took down so that the image didn’t show on her blog post. I emailed her the same day the post went up and asked her to remove the blog post, or if she refused, my personal information like the hometown where I live. She claimed to never have received the email, but I am telling you all via my public domain, it was sent. Yesterday I visited the blog again to find that not only did she put a new picture up, but she posted a direct link to my personal photography business. I posted 2 comments, again requesting that the post be taken down, or at the very least the link to my business. She didn’t approve my comments, she didn’t take the post down, she never took my hometown out, but she did take out the link to my business site. And then she banned me from being able to view her site.
My blog and business are separate entities, and up until yesterday I preferred to keep them separate. Now, I just don’t care. Yes, I have a photography business. Nikki Allen Photography. I have made a career out of doing what I love. It is my number 1 priority aside from the obvious, my family. That webpage will reopen shortly.
The crazy person, who shall remain nameless and will no longer get traffic from me or my friends, has an entire website dedicated to a person she hates. She claims to just be trying to spread information, but the way she does it makes her look like a complete psycho. I hate to take the low road and call her names, but I just can’t think of anything nice to say and I just don’t want to “don’t say anything at all”.
Look, girlfriend, you are delusional, plain and simple. You can keep hiding under the guise that you’re trying to “keep it real” by “spreading the truth” but look at yourself. Crazy. Just crazy. Who, except for a crazy person, devotes an entire website to hating a person and their followers? You think the majority of those 102 comments on that blog post were defending PW? You’re wrong. Those were my friends defending me. My wonderful, amazing friends, which you probably know nothing about having. Oh, and I know in your delusional state you are thinking that this is a post defending Pioneer Woman. Nope, this is a post defending myself. This isn’t about her anymore. You made this about us.
I’m sorry your life is so pathetic and sad that you have to spend your days online harassing people. By the way, I did file a report with the proxy through which you registered your domain. What you are doing is cyber bullying. It is harassment. It doesn’t just happen to people under the age of 18. It happens to grown women, by grown women who lead pathetic sad little lives. But you know what? I won’t let you tear me down.
I have officially climbed back up on my throne.
