Dear Not Really Anonymous

from Crowley, LA. Oh how your comment made me giggle today. You had been visiting my vlog on doing a Love Dare for 2 days and then today you finally got brave enough to comment:

“You seem so shallow, maybe you should read a newspaper and quit watching The Real Housewives et al”

Okay well I don’t know what et al is I am assuming it is supposed to be at all but Oh anonymous I am not to sure of your brain so it could have a completely different meaning.

Now onto your comment you say I am shallow after watching my vlog about doing the love dare well if shallow means I want a better marriage then consider me the most shallow person in the world. I am getting from this either a) you are in a sucky relationship or b) you are not in a relationship at all because why else would someone think anything to do with working on a relationship is shallow.

Yes I watch Real Housewives…but the best part is, wait for it , wait for it….I do read the paper too!!!!!! You see us shallow people still know how to multi task it comes with the territory of becoming a parent. We can have our guilty little “shallow” pleasures and still keep up with the current world going ons.

In fact I may step on your toes and say I probably know a bit more about what is going on in the world today than you, because well frankly I don’t spend my time trolling around other peoples blogs and leave rude pointless comments. Yes I have been in talks with the others you have done this too and I must say it is just a sad little world you live in. Oh well whatever works for you.

I am guessing you don’t want to be involved with the love dare since working on a relationship in your opinion is shallow but if you would like to the door is still open.

I think the best part of this is you really thought you were anonymous but oh how you were mistaken. It was highly coincidental that you were on twitter when I posted my housewives tweets, then all the sudden your name popped up in my stat counter….ahhh the joys of leaving tracks on the Internet. Well I can say this I thought today was going to be a bad day but you actually gave me a giggle and then I realized I don’t have it near as bad as others (namely You). At least I am happy and confident in myself that well if I feel like putting down someone I don’t hide behind the anonymous screen name. Then again I realized months ago that high school behavior of bashing others is not attractive so I quit and even apologized to those I wronged.

So to you and well all the other rude anonymous commenter’s out there, please realized while yes sometimes you do succeed in hurting a bloggers feelings more often than not we are really just laughing at you because well we know who you are.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for the page views love when you up my stats ๐Ÿ™‚ And well why not take credit for the rude comments you leave some guys actually like that quality, okay maybe not but at least you will look like you are confident enough to say what you want in the open.

  2. 2

    OMG!!! LOL
    I guess some people are not brave enough to state who they are. Thats just wimpy and laughable!!

  3. 3

    You go girl!! ANonymous can suck eggs. Raw ones. Drippy and stringy raw eggs.

  4. 4

    Anon posters are sad, sad sad. Working for better marriages is commendable and don’t bother your pretty little head with any anon comment (even though this one is not-so anonymous).

  5. 5

    Shallow?! Are you serious? Wow. There are some ppl who we will never understand.

    oh, I wonder if your Anonymous is the same chicken shit as my Anonymous. if not, they’re from the same litter.

  9. 9

    Toni, you ROCK!!!

  10. 10

    Just came to send you some hugs Toni. I’m sorry it all turned out this way, I was hoping most of those issues were put in the past throughout these few months.

    Please don’t let it get to you.


  13. 13

    haha!!! Too funny! I haven’t had anything THAT interesting over at my blog. ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. 14

    Lilith I am not I just find it comical now lOL

  15. 15

    No WONDER you were so angry! I had no idea what was going on, I just saw LA and thought I did something LOL!

  16. 16

    At the moment I haven’t had any anonymous comments that I’ve taken like that. I honestly don’t think I get those kind of comments at all. LOL I hope anon can come forth and grace us with his/her face. hahahahahaha

  17. 17

    good for you. I would never tell a stranger I thought they were shallow.
    et al – is basically like etc. etc.
    it means “and the others” like “Housewives…and the others like it.”

  18. 18

    Ya know girl… Crowley is not THAT far away from where I live… maybe I should go leave some anonomous comments on their house? What cha think?? Who has some comments for Crowley in Louisiana??
    The bloggy world may be big but watch out! There is always someone close to where you live!

  19. 19

    Don’t you love when someone looks at one bit of your blog and decides things like that? He should stick to the tween sites.

  20. 20

    Lol!! Good for you for calling them out!! Proud of ya!

    What a crazy comment to make! You’re shallow? Hm…
    I think “anonymous” was really digging for an insult, there. Too bad it didn’t make any sense. ๐Ÿ™‚

  22. 22

    I haven’t been able to get online yet until now, so I was wondering what your tweets meant.
    Oh good grief, I can’t believe a person would say you are shallow for doing the love dare. You’re right they apparently don’t have a relationship they want to keep. There is never anything wrong with even making something good, better.

  23. 23

    One more thing, I’ve never had any negative comments, but my blog is just not very exciting. But you might just need to give us a tutorial on how to have mad detective skills like you.

    Hey Toni:

    “et al” I believe, is Latin, and is a term used in law and real estate a lot, and generally refers “to others; and others as they may have an interest.” For instance, on a County Plat Book, you will often see real estate land owners listed as: “John Doe, Mary Doe, et al.” which basically means John, Mary and any/all others who have an onwership interest in the ‘property,’ in this case.

  25. 25

    Thank you michele and coastrat for letting me know what et al means. I seriously have never heard that phrase before ๐Ÿ™‚

  26. 26

    Very well spoken, my dear!! Keep it coming! Get em!

  27. 27

    Amen! I’ve been “lucky” enough to only get one comment like that. It was months ago but I still think about it:(

  28. 28

    Yea, Toni. You are so shallow!

    I hate anonymous comments…at least put a name!

    Do you know who I am? Hee hee. I’m silly.

  30. 30

    Serisously, what is WRONG with people???

  31. 31

    You are my HERO, Toni! You go with your bad self!! Unbefriggleavable!! Shallow? Seriously!? PUH-LEASE!

    I’ve gotta get my duckies in a row and get my Dare On! :o)

  32. 32

    too funny!! You rock!!

  33. 33

    LMAO!!!!!!!! WTG Toni!! way to stand up for yourself and just tell them like it is!!! Haters and wannabe’s can just leave and go elsewhere to stalk….and people that just out of the blue decide to say whats up, only when something “juicy” in their eyes happens can take a flying leap too!!

    Love ya Toni!! my fellow phone whore!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  34. 34

    Is it weird that I am little bit jealous that so many others have been the victim of this “anonymous” and I have not?
    Love your response by the way!

  35. 35

    why have people been so snarky lately? I don’t get people.

  36. 36

    Maybe I am missing something…. the whole you being shallow part?
    Is there a uncensored vlog that I missed?
    People think they can”hide” behind anonymous comments for some reason. And as you so clearly pointed out… nothing is really every anonymous.

  37. 37

    Toni, who said that?
