I'm Over It

Thanks you everyone for your kind and understand comments about my problem. You are all right, I will not make my blog private, nor will I continue to think about it. I am over it. I was honest, I said what I felt and what I thought and now I am going back to being happy me. I truely believe in the saying "what comes around goes around", and I am not one who likes to put negative energy out into the world, so I am clearing my soul. I have so many positives in my life. The love of my family, support of my husband, my beautiful girls, my awesome friends online and off, and my buisness which gives me the outlet to to what I love to do. I think those all all the best positives in my life.

I know a lot of you asked me to "out" her. My dark side screams "do it!", but I can't. I feel like that would be something she would do, and I do not want to go to that level. Plus I am trying to build a good reputation and a good honest business and I don't want that negative aspect being seen of me. However if you are wondering if she is "following" you can contact me and I will say yes or no.

As of this morning I have a Copy Right Infringement Lawyer, so if any more written words are stolen from me, she will be hearing from my lawyer. Unfortunately I can not do anything about her using the same web host, copying the way my site is laid out, copying my categories and making the same products as me (that are not copy righted by myself) or even joining all the same blogging sites I have been apart of for months.

So on to bigger and better things. The high road is very sunny and beautiful and that is the path I am taking. So this post and the original post will be bumped down so I can bring back to the top my Giveaway. Plus I have been "tagged" by Lisa from Pink in The House Of Blue so I need to get started on that, thanks Lisa :)

Thanks again everyone for your support!

Sorry you've had a rough couple of days. How aggravating to have someone stalking you and stealing your designs, website layout, etc.

You did the right thing by taking the high road. Don't let her win by taking traffic away from your blog.

Keep doing what you are doing, as you are the better person for not falling into the backbiting, squabbling trap! You know you have good products, great ideas and a mind of your own...evidentally she doesn't.

I am so glad you've decided on how to approach the situation! You're right to be the better person, good for you! I am glad you're not going private, because you've got great things to share! Why let her win?

I tried calling you but your number has changed since I talked to you last. Do you still have my #?

Sorry to hear about your stalker...is there a chance that I know this person too...if so, I have an idea of who would do that to you. I'm sorry that happened but you are being the better person.

Hi Darling! I am so very behind in playing catch up with my wonderful friends! I missed this post somehow (just read it), and I am so sorry I wasn't there to offer support when all of this took place. I tried to contact you via email, but for some reason, my puter went wonky on me. This will probably be long for a comment, but here it goes:
I just wanted to say that you had every right to say how you feel. I actually think you did it in a pleasant manner. It's a risky business, when you are making handmade (etc.). Believe it or not, I am working my tail off right now on a project I am getting ready to launch on ETSY. It's a vision I have had for some time now, and I want to make sure everything is just right before going live. I would hate to have someone take my ideas and hard work and make it their own. Like you, I have poured my heart into making a great product, doing the research needed to get it going, etc., etc. I completely understand why you are/were frustrated.
Good for you for following up and taking action like you are doing. I am proud of you for standing up for how you feel! And, you have such a great group of followers, so even better that you have all of this support! :)
I love the work you do, and I admire you for sticking to it! Keep up the good work!

Have a nice and relaxing Mother's Day!!

Stopping by from MBC. Glad to see that you chose a mature, positive way to respond to your stalker problem.

I'm so sorry this has happened to you. But I would like to say Happy Mothers Day!
