Living under a microscope.

Today, I forgot to get Lil O from school and realized it when I was almost at the high school to collect the teenager.  I had to turn around and rush back to get Lil O at school.  Superdad asked me what was on my mind but I didn’t want to tell him.

He’d just fuss and say to not let it get to me.  But I’m tired of it hence me writing this blog post.  I want you to know some of the things that a blogger must face behind the scenes.   I’ve been blogging for seven years and I’ve done pretty well at it I believe.  I have faithful fans and companies that I work for.  Blogging has been good to me and my family.

There’s a woman that went to high school with me that I friended on Facebook couple years ago and she became curious with blogging.  I even helped her design a blog and I even welcomed her into my home.  I treat people the way that I want to be treated even though others had warned me about being friends with this person.  But I stood my ground and treated her kindly.

It bit me in the ass.  She started copying things, changing the words around a bit.  I confronted her on it and she said she’d take it all down, etc…  I told her I was tired of her plagiarizing my stuff but she threw back that it was a free country.  Blah blah blah.

She tells her friends that she doesn’t go to my blogs but I can show you on my stat counter her Blackberry IP address and the IP address of the friend’s house she is staying with at the moment.  So, she can tell people all she wants that she doesn’t care about my blog, then why is she reading it? 

I’ve sought legal advice from two different people, one who specializes in Internet Law and they’ve given me the best advice after looking at my blogs and then hers.  Let it go, she cannot hurt your business with her blogs.  I’ve been told to not even worry about her because the two cannot compare. 

So, I’ve done my best to let it go and be the bigger person.
Then today I realized that she contacted a personal friend of mine, like a friend I text and talk to, because I did a review for her business and SHE contacted her because she wanted to review her business.  Coincidence, I think not.

I even went back to my stat counter and pulled her Blackberry IP leaving my blog going to my friend’s business site.  So, if she doesn’t read my blogs then why is she contacting people that I’ve worked with in the past??  Yeah, I’d like to hear the answer to that one myself.  Actually, I don’t give a rat’s ass.

So she may tell her friends that she doesn’t read either of my two blogs but I know better thanks to several stat counters on my blogs.  Gotta love technology.  So, when she reads this post, and she will, she will start bad mouthing me on her Facebook page to her friends, like she always does, about that awful Supermom, she thinks she’s so good.  I can hear it now.  You probably will too if you’re quiet enough. 

So, this is what I’ve been dealing with for over a year, a sort of behind the scenes of a mom blogger, if you will call it that.  I’ve had to deal with being under the microscope of this woman as she stalks both of my blogs.  I’ve had to deal with her calling me a bitch, even though I never called her a name.  I’ve had to deal with this woman wishing another brain tumor on my friend.  Yes, she claims to have God in her life. 

This is it.  This is me being open with my faithful fans as I’m honest about everything else in my life. 

Perhaps, that’s why I forgot to get Lil O today after learning of her contacting a personal friend of mine.  I feel like I have someone peeping in my windows watching to see what I will do next.  And yes she does live in my town.

I will say, “I bet she didn’t see this coming.”

I made this up and it used to be on my blog and it is still on my business cards:

Without you, I’d be talking to myself.

Here’s a sentence from her blog:

Without you i'd be lonley.

I don't have to worry about talking to myself anymore because I know she'll be following....

Wow. Im not sure if you should be flattered oh who Im i kidding i would be annoyed also. She sounds like she is so jealous of you . Its sad that someone has to steal your ideas and thoughts. She really needs to get a life. I know it hard but there is a saying kill them with kindness.. oh no I hope she dosnt steal this too. Hang in there

The more you let her bother you the more she will like it. Maybe try to ignore what she is doing and maybe she will just go away. Cant you block her ip from accessing your sites?
Supermom said…
Thanks everyone for your kind words.

Yes, I have tried blocking her IP, several of them since she uses her Blackberry to read my blogs as well. I used to use a program that blocked her but apparently it is no longer in service. *shrug* So, unless I find another one online then I cannot block her.

the ignore game does not work... I was the friend that did not want Chell to help her because I had already tried to be friends to her and when I was not what she wanted me to be... I was harrassed and she wished me another brain tumor... It is not like in school ignore the problem and it will go away. This is Chell's Business! She is being stalked by this woman!

There is a nut in every bunch and sounds like you found one- the fact is, your time, attention, care and upset is likely exactly what she thrives on. The advice I offer my daughters or a friend when they've accidentally somehow become entangled with one of these fruit bats is to ignore them- not just in that I won't pay attention to what they say kind of way, I mean as if they literally don't exist- no acknowledgment whatsoever- none- if they speak you look around as if you've heard something, if they walk past your line of vision you see through them, if they write you, delete it without reading- completely and utterly remove them from your realm of existence- you can't control what others do, especially the really delusional ones, you can only control your response to them to minimize the thought you give them. *blink* they're gone. Sorry you've been dealing with that. I forgot my kids once, but I was just watching a talk show, lol.

Short of ignoring her I'd say beat her senseless, but not everyone is down with the physical retaliation- but from the sounds of this post, punching her in the face might be therapeutic.

I swear to God that this woman is delusional.

Here's her response to my blog post:

Now on a lil different note. I saw a blog posting today that tickled me a little. I will only say this about it. To each their own. I am ME that is the best ME there will ever be. No one will ever be as good as ME. I don't have to prove myself to anyone it is a free country and I will Review any product I choose and will read whatever I want. I hope u enjoy. Have a blessed weekend and I hope you are ready for the wonderful things coming up.

TODAY!!!! This is how it's going down.

I'm taking Dianna Ray's advice, right this moment the world has one less person in it. I see no one and I hear no one. I have a good life and I'm so blessed and that woman cannot change that.

**Just know that if you work with me that I do not pass out your information to anyone.**
