Funny thing, this Jenny Page, I'm pretty sure is Annie Brown. Or Annie Brown is Reagan herself.
Let me just say this:
When writers talk about truth, it doesn't necessarily mean that the opposite is lying.
It means the opposite is omission or bricking up the wall that the truth stands behind.
The fact that lying is even brought up, and that Jenny Page (who has no link to her name, which I'm convinced is a fake one--also, her comments creep me out every single time I read Reagan's Blob, it's like she's wayyyy too nice, and is actually a man who is overly-complimentary or what have you) but 'gossipy hurtful' is really pushing it. But then, Jenny Page seems to have a limited vocabulary range, and her time is spent posting what amount to 'anonymous' comments, so, I take Jenny Page with a grain of (rock) salt. And I think you, Ms. "Page" are more than 'a little' odd.
As for the whole wink post--well, Reagan, you said the blog was lacking sass. "Truth" be told, it's not. It lacks honesty, and I underscore the point about honesty not being the diametric opposite of dishonesty. Well, splitting hairs, it is, but putting on a facade, and expecting people to go along with it is not that honest. (and I am not the type to just 'go along' with things).
I'm your reader, and apparently, you're my reader, and I think, to say the least, blogger-to-blogger, you have a responsibility, as I do, to uphold your end of the bargain. If I want to read fiction, I'll go to the library. And before you run off, arms waving, about personal boundaries and all that, I just say this: get over it. I do like your blog. And then sometimes I don't. And really, it shouldn't matter.
Look--I've read a tonne of the comments. Some of the 'rah rah sis boom bah' sh*t just doesn't sit well with me. I don't applaud writers who do what you've done. Do I stop reading or threaten to stop?
No. But at least my comments have a real name, a direct link back, and an honesty to them.
More than I can say about these.
I lifted them right off the comments board and they are here, on my blog.
Comment from jenny page
@Carolyn lyer, hi. I mean no offense, but I thought your comment a little odd? I clicked on the link you posted and you’ve written numerous times on your blog about Reagan’s Blob and how much you like it…yet you’ve also written what looks to be gossipy hurtful stuff about her. Is that the truth you’re talking about? I’m sincerely confused.
Comment from Reagan Breinholt
Yeah…I agree with Jenny page. I’m a little confused because I’m sure we don’t know each other. So I’m not sure what you think I’m lying about.
Oh, actually! I am lying about it being a wink in the picture. Piper wasn’t winking, she was squinting from the sun. Other than that I literally have no idea what you are talking about.
