so.................

SO yesterday, I think I cracked under the pressure...what pressure you may be asking....well, the pressure I put on myself.

you see....I blogged yesterday, twice in fact but as you can see now I deleted them both.

1st I blogged a celeb letter, it was hilarious and about Brooke Shields, and it of course led to a negative comment left by anonymous...which really once again was devastating to me, this being my blog and my forum.

If people do not like the letters or my blog I would hope they would stop reading instad of coming here and spewing negativity.

now because this "anonymous" won't ever give their name, I am not sure...is it the same person all the time, is it a group of people that just hate me.

now I would be lying if I said I did not care, I do...that is the problem, but I am trying to just get over it.

Now.....yesterday and all this week and last week I have been incredibly busy working on lots of projects, one being quite large and it took a lot out of me, more than I thought it could so I have been living without my "wall of protection" around me, I have been vulnerable...so when the comment happened I deleted.

Then I wrote a post apologizing for the letter....that met with a lot of response as well....(which I love by the way....you loyal readers are wonderful), the people that told me to never apologize and never stop just being me....and you know what you were the ones that were right, not anonymous....

so, then I deleted my apology.

SO there you have it. In case you were wondering if you were here and saw things that now are not here.

I should not have to apologize for things on my own blog, especially for jokes...jokes that are not hurting anyones feelings....and if you don't like it then maybe those people should spend their time writing mean letters to David Letterman, of Conan O'Brian, or John Stewart or any other countless comedian who uses satire as a way to make people laugh.

ok, moving on.......................how are all of you?? Good??

I have been overwhelmed by the response to my limited edition self published art book - Mixed Emotions . Thank you all....as it stands there are very few left of this book coming in, so if you are thinking you NEED to have one, then you should snag one now.

Though....if you miss out don't despair there will be another book coming sometime, again it will be limited edition and again all books will be ever so slightly different and come numbered.

also be on the lookout there will be more Moleskine sketchbooks coming too.....starting today and tomorrow there will be another batch, the last ones went pretty quickly.

ok now I must do the million things I have to do today and with any luck I just might be able to get some creative time in tomorrow.

xoxo

I'm sorry to hear that someone was sabotaging your blog! I keep on running across other blog writers who have been experiencing the same thing. Just can't understand it. Regardless, I'm also glad that you realized that your readers appreciate your comments, opinions, insight, and general prose no matter what the topic is.

Now, I'm off to take a look at your art book. What a lovely piece at first glance!

What's so effin' crazy is, there are *real* issues in the world that anonymous(es) could put a little energy toward and maybe start getting some results.
Sorry chica,
Luv ya.

Good for you for standing strong. Shame on Anonymous for being a coward and a waste of space.

I saw your brook letter yesterday and thought it was hilarious. I came back to comment and it was GONE!! I missed everything in between but now I know. I hate people who have to be all anonymous. so not right, if you want to say something, say it as who you are. You certainly don't hide anything about yourself. anyway, love all your new work and you! xoxoxo

We, your loyal readers, love you to pieces, just as you are. I hope you realize that and will post as you like here, always.

To heck with anonymous!!!

I have a feeling that anonymous is just one person, and is picking on you for some reason. I think anonymous needs to get a life. Also, is there a way that you can just delete the anonymous comment without deleting the entire post? That would be nice, because I think that the vast majority would like to see your posts and do understand that you're being funny.

I think if someone was really offended, that's indicative of the fact that that person has issues. Serious ones.

I am so proud of you. You should never have to apologize for your opinions. Anonymous can bite you.

I can't wait to see your new Moleskine notebooks, I love mine.

I think I've already aptly said my piece about anonymous. But for the record: Anonymous, go eff yourself.

Tomorrow can't come fast enough to reserve my book!

Anonymous again.
First time I've every commented on your blog was the post you deleted. I didn't think I was "hateful" simply didn't like your comments regarding PPD. As someone who went through it, and had horrible thoughts about doing harm to my child - it's not a funny subject and shouldn't be treated in the silly, light fashion you did. I don't blog - so don't have a "name" to give you.

hi anonymous...I was not making light of PPD yesterday, in fact had you read my comments you would have seen that it was something my mom suffered from...

also I never said you were hateful, I have had hateful comments in the past.

I believe I used the word negative.

Whatevs. I think you're great, for real.

Also, I'm not the same anonymous as the douchebage. I'm Beej.

Blogger Chickenbells said...

You are absolutely right about the people who make their living from being funny and making fun of one or more people or groups of people...It's no fun to come here and think that you've censored yourself...then again, you know what I said in my comment from yesterday...smooch-a-roo!!

Hi Jennifer,
Frankly, it was your comment about your mom that made me write the initial comment. That you would have someone close to you go through something similiar and still choose to make light of it didn't make sense to me.

well......considering I have suffered with depression my whole life...I have learned if you cannot laugh sometimes, what is the point...it's a trait I got from my mom, she probably would have laughed at the letter actually

To Jenn... Hugs to you and your ability to laugh at life even when it is hard sometimes.

To Anonymous / Lorraine... Hugs to you too for being as pathetic as you obviously must be.

In my opinion, when someone makes nasty and annoymous comments, it says everything about them and nothing about you. Keep up the good work. You're golden!

I didn't see your last two posts, but I'm glad that you've decided to blog about not needing to apologize to anyone. This is your space, and I love that you feel free to say anything you want here. Sometimes I hold back on my choice of words on my blog, because I want to keep it professional, but what are blogs for really? So get to know US as humans, as artists, and friends...

So say what you will hun, and don't delete anything for anyone.

Was wondering what happened there but its your blog & you'll delete if you want to :)

You're wonderful too, just keep writing & we'll all keep reading!

Good luck with selling all of the books, that is great news!!!

I got here from Funky Carter and just thought I'd leave a positive comment to show my support.

There's no reason to leave a negative comment on someone else's blog. If you don't like it, anonymous, don't read it.

I also missed this post, but remember when you had something similar happen a while back. Lots of good advise here from the bloggers that care. When you have the chance, read them again. These are the comments that matter. I also feel that if a person doesn't seem to understand your thoughts, your blog, tuff. They need to go somewhere else.
