Using My Name? I Don’t Think So!
It was brought to my attention this afternoon that a certain blogger, who shall remain nameless, has been using my name on and off the blogosphere in an effort to protect themselves. I am here to set the record straight. Listen closely, because if I ever have to say this again, this will be a lawsuit against the spineless coward using my name.
#1- I do not blog to spew hatred to my fellow bloggers. There is no need for it. We are all entitled to our own opinions.
I am one of the nicest people to interact with. I will always be polite and respectful, but if I have asked you once to do something (like remove my work from your blog because you never asked for permission and you’re a repeat offender) and you’ve ignored me, then I might not be so nice.
I have had a few people disagree with me in comments, and in general. That is 100% FINE. There is an unfollow button. I don’t have to follow them, they don’t have to follow me, and that is where the drama ends. I’m a grown woman, not a child, and I am not an attention seeker. I’m a writer.
#2- If someone comes to you and uses the words “Lisa said…”, please come to me IMMEDIATELY and VERIFY with me. I don’t talk behind people’s backs. Ask my friends. I am not two-faced, and I do not pull punches. If I’m going to say something, be it nice or not, I will say it directly to you. I have absolutely no qualms about that, nor have I ever.
#3- I am a GIRL’S GIRL to the core. It is very rare to find me defending a man, but especially in a situation where a man has been a vile, inappropriate pig and hurt a woman I care about in the process. There are, but a handful of men I will defend. One of whom I am related to, one is my brother’s best friend that is a brother to me and has gone to bat for me, and the other I am in a relationship with. And even then, it’s dicey if any of them happens to hit my bad side.
#4- If you want or need to know something, come directly to the source.
#5- If my name has been used against you as in “Lisa will kick your ass if….” that is simply untrue. For starters, I don’t talk like that unless I REALLY know you, and when I do it, it’s in jest. Two, this is a complete and utter farce. If this has been said to you, please message me and lets clear this up once and for all.
Deceit is rampant on the blogosphere these days and it’s making me really angry. My name is attached to 26 years of hard work and is protected by copyrights that I own and have always owned. Anyone running their mouth off, using my name without my express written consent is fucking full of shit.
Please feel free to take that message back to the flock master and have him shove it up his ass.
