Today has been interesting. I got 12 text messages from my friends saying, “I saw your article on Yardbarker!”
I was excited, thinking maybe one of my entertainment posts or beauty reviews got picked up (not knowing what Yardbarker was — sorry!). Go figure, I’m getting the usual treatment for (what else) my Twit-Fight, if you can call it that, with Jeff Pearlman.
It’s amusing at this point. The people who negatively comment say the same thing I’ve heard a million times before. I’m always waiting for that one nay-sayer who is clever enough to surprise me and make me laugh and not say the typical “She’s a stupid as her uncle,” or “She looks like she’s been on steriods.” Really guys? Come up with something a little more witty so at least I’m entertained. However, the postive responses are actually quite touching, so it’s been a good balance.
Anyway, I’m wondering why my thoughts and opinions are even worth posting and commentating about. I get it: I’m defending someone that everyone is ready to torch. I can understand why people might think I’m blind or naive in that aspect, since the general public has their minds made up that he’s guilty.
As far as saying what I feel and I believe: this a personal blog and I can say whatever I want to say. It’s not the gospel nor a news source. I have the freedom to defend my Uncle, write about Vajazzling or to say that mizerle06 from
Slow News Day Posts Regarding People (Like Me) Whom Nobody Cares About Sparty and Friends is just looking to get publicity from my article that, news to me, I wrote to “cash in” on.
He, Mizerele06, wrote an article (from what I can tell) to insinuate that I moved out to Hollywood to become a TV host and am using my uncle’s name to do so, thus spawning into jabs at my beauty articles and posting an inappropriate photo he (poorly) edited. Actually, I take that back — I don’t know the point of his post. He starts talking about how he learned nothing from the tweets between Jeff and Roger, except that I exist, and then proceeded to give excerpts of my beauty articles and talk about how I was living in Hollywood.
So, I have to ask: why did he want to post about me? Merely for that (terribly photoshoped and vulgar) photo of Roger?
Listen, I’m working hard just like the rest of the yuppies in the world who are going after a dream. I’m just a chick who likes to write, has big goals and big dreams that I’m trying to make a reality. Nothing more, nothing less. And while Mizerle06 seems to think I’m “cashing in,” I can assure you that I wrote to defend someone I care about — not to get in the news. The fact that this whole thing is even worth mentioning is a trip.
So, why is brazlian waxing important or relevant? Why is learning how to tan safely something I feel people need to know? To clarify, Mizerle06, I’m the West Hollywood Beauty Writer for Examiner.com. Nothing important or special, just a way to improve my portfolio and get my name out there. While you use my beauty posts to essentially “dumb-me-down” and solicit sexual responses regarding the word “facial,” (which is Bush League in my personal opinion), I actually write those posts to help me make a decent living. Not to mention plenty of readers enjoy the candid reviews and commentaries that I post.
So, a few things, Mizerle06:
– Thanks for the shout out
– Being crude is no way to act around a lady
– If you need a decent photoshop tech, I’ve got experience
The big picture is this: I’m just a minion — nothing important — so as entertaining as it is getting the love/hate letters and posts, it’s nothing to think twice about.
