a BIG thank you

Good heavens do I love this little blogging community. Such an ugly incident turned into an amazing show of support. I love each and everyone of you for standing up for me. And more than for me - for US. These blogs are our personal online journals and while we open them up to the World... there should be a level of respect between all bloggers, readers, & lurkers. Usually there is... yesterday there was not. From one person. And you guys came to my defense. And I love you for it.

Because Ms. 'Amy White' decided to leave ugliness on my blog yesterday, I've decided to offset her lack of karma with more karmic activity on my side. I'm going to go out of my way to make people's day today. Something as simple as a genuine compliment or a simple way to help people is easy for me to do and I figure why not?
Wishing you all an amazing weekend. I have Monday off so I'm doubly happy for the weekend to {almost} be here. I'm heading to Hilton Head Island for a bachelorette party so I'm sure I'll have some fun photos for next week!

Hey Morgan! I found your blog through K.Law! Sorry you had to deal with that! I like your karmic plan! Have a safe trip to HHI. I live in Charleston and we go down whenever we can. At least out of a shitty situation I found a new fabulous blog to follow! Happy Friday.

Yikes! I'm sorry you had to deal with this simply for sharing your opinion {which most of us agree with, by the by}. But congrats on turning it into delicious lemonade for the people who will experience your extra kindness! And have a blast this weekend!

KLaw said...

We all love you Morgan! Hope your weekend is filled with fun and LOVE!

Miss Kriss said...

Way to turn a such a negative event into a positive one! :) Love your blog, girlie...I'm your newest follower. And by the way, I completely agreed with you on the whole Heidi thing. ;) Happy Friday!

your letter back was very well said. the nerve of people to think that they can verbally attack you like that. yes, it may be virtual world we live in, but each post you write is giving the readers a piece of you and it feels awful when someone abuses it. you have great posts and a lovely blog do not let this make you second guess your writing!!

Kris said...

I'm just starting to read about this on other blogs. What a LOSER! Keep doing what you are doing! :o)

Meghan said...

I love your positive attitude. I am glad an ugly and undeserved situation turned into a wonderful show of support for you!!! This Amy White can go fly a kite!!!

Good for you, morgan! You are so much better than any "amy white". Gawd i wish i could meet her/him...i'd roundhouse kick her/him in the face SEVERAL times. Hope s/he learned a lesson...DON'T MESS!

~KS said...

happy weekend xoxo

katie + bret said...

So, I stopped over from KLaws blog to see exactly went down and MY GOSH! Good for you for throwing good karma out there to counter-act that not-so-friendly air around!

Have a great weekend and FYI, CUTE BLOG!! Hope you don't mind I came on by!

HeatherLynn said...

Dearest Morgan,

Sorry to of read all the drama around these parts. I've never been to your blog before, but Klaw's post inspired me to see what all the fuss was about. A whole lot of fuss over a little plastic surgery story. I wasn't like you called her a diseased whore or anything.

And it IS sad, sad that in this society, that she feels the need to MAKE herself look like someone she isn't!

She was lovely before...now she's just unrecognizable, and people tend to not like it when people become someone else. In looks OR in personality.

Ms. White is obviously not grasping the concept of that. I don't think you meant any harm. I've had my fair share of hate mail too, so i know how you feel....it's a very mixed feelings kind of thing to have happen. And it's been my experience, it's always done anonymously, with no return address.

it's in the coward's handbook i guess! ;)

xoxo

Jenni said...

You inspired me to do a post today...and it was almost therapeutic experience for me to write it.
Thank you. :)

I came over from KLaws. I like blogs that talk about celebs. What would Amy White think about me? That I am ugly and have a lame career? I'm guessing Amy White is a totally ugo grenade launcher. There I judged her, she judged everyone, and we all judged Heidi. Feels like a succesful Friday. Guess what I don't think I am the only one that found your blog because of this biotch. So you should be thanking her for getting you more followers!

meredith said...

i'm new to your blog - came over here from KS' and kristen's. I, too, received some pretty hateful comments a few weeks ago. i was shocked and stunned, and - quite frankly - a little hurt. and while i could slap this little miss amy white, i am thankful to her for one reason and that is finding your blog!

now here i am following you! :) have a great, fun weekend!

Selma said...

Have an amazing weekend, and forget about the ugly incident and all. It is now Good Karma Day! ;) :D

"Amy White"------ College experitment... said...

Mission accomplished! Me and a group of students (from College---UFM) set out to DO an experiment about the interent. The internet is a place where we all realized false truths are told, discovered and realized. It was a perfect place...after all no one is real. The goal was to randomly pick one community (blog) and to see how they would act towards negativity and how those WORDS are more influentical in cyberworld than the real world. We set out to knock out 3 blogs (won't name them). We were trying to prove ONE point (and DID) and that only (which is)--People are more affected by words of a person they can't SEE, than people that they can. Anyone with common sense wouldn't really take someone else seriously, that FIRSt they can't see. Society is trained to believe and toy with the emotions of those who they feel are really insecure and victims. As a rule people are tricked into believing false truths on the internet MORE SO, than facts told to them in person. In conclusion, this blog reacted in the precise way we thought and sadly as we'd not hoped.

As a rule, people that come on the internet to attack are usually battling with something in their lives, therefore, instead of seeing what they DO, see what they need. It's always a reason (even on the net) why people do what they do. Most times it's not even about you!

Btw, the name " Amy White" was abbrv. for 8 members apart of the project....... Alivin, Mannie, Yan, William, Hanna, Ira, Tia and Eli.

We do greatly apologize that it came across as UNKNOWN (again it was random), and if it did hurt anyone.......

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Down and Out Chic said...

an experiment about the internet, hmmmm. interesting.
morgan, email me at downandoutchic@gmail.com when you have a second, i want to touch base about this.

bananas. said...

ok so i read that experiment comment...

if that really was an experiment then me being the scientific smart ass that i am could've told alvin, minnie, mickey and whoever else was involved that that shit was a big fucking GIVEN! of course people are going to get mad at someone calling them a "bitch" online.

silly college students.

Katy Mary said...

I hope you have a GREAT weekend Morgan! You deserve it!

*donna* said...

i'm so pleased people came to your defence. 'amy white' should be so ashamed of her comment. you're blog is fabulous so keep up the good work :0)

*donna* said...

oops - frustration must have affected my grammar! i meant to write 'your' blog is fabulous!

Rachel McPhillips said...

Okay.. I just hopped over from KLaw, and HAD to read that ridicky comment.... I have read about 1 page of your blog and already think you are pure awesomeness!

SG said...

I'm just now catching up on all the drama and I saw the comment above that it was some stupid experiment?! WTF?! Regardless you are awesome, don't let any haters get you down. Keep doing what you're doing, there are so many people out there that love and support you!

Carol {Everyday Delights} said...

I just came over to your site from K. Law and I cannot believe that happened! Don't let rude, mean people ruin your day! Your blog is great and I'm so glad I found it - I'm a new, loyal follower! :)

Rasha said...

I love you, I really do... Dont let losers, bring you down.

Paula said...

Hmmm . . . in terms of experiments . . . I think it pretty much sucked. And putting an apology after basically insulting the intelligence of everyone who commented on this issue . . . that kinda cancels out the apology.

Nobody likes being slagged off, regardless of whether they can see a person doing it or not.

AMY WHITE are, as a collective, douchebags. Maybe in future they should consider people's feelings before getting all scientific on our asses.

Morgan - I think from what I've read you dealt with the situation in exactly the right way. Good for you!!!

Kinsey Michaels said...

Bachelorette parties are such a blast, I hope you have an amazing time. And sorry to hear about the haters, I saw another fellow blogger had the same thing happen to her. It's ridiculous!

CAPow said...

I love how you're turning something so ugly into something so beautiful!

mommara said...

Have a great weekend. YOu need it.

A experiment by telling someone they are "ugly and a wanna b princess?" Wow, thats one hell of an experiment.
I don't know the people you know in real life but, had you said those same things to my face I would have reacted the same way.
Shocked, hurt, and Pissed off.

Way to go bully experimenters. Karma is a biotch. Maybe testing that theory next would be a good idea.

Jennifer said...

so i'm new to your blog... found you through klaw. i'm so sorry that you were attacked that way, but i love your positivity and your willingness to turn a bad situation into a good one. have a super weekend! :)

Jen said...

Hope you are enjoying your bachelorette weekend of fun!

<3 u lady!

drollgirl said...

anon comments suck ass. for real. they need to get a life. if they hate a blog they should just MOVE ON. it isn't that tricky!

Sarah Lin said...

What "Amy White Experitment" DID was ruthless and extremely silly I'll agree on that, BUT never give your enemy THIS much credit for hurting you!!!!! MORGAN, instead of posting a letter and another post to them, causing everyone else to indulge in the MESS, you should have just said:

"People are always going to be CRUEL, but it's up to US to make the best of life within HATE"..........you can't fight ignorance with anger :(
When our enemies can see us BLEEDING, whether they apologize or not, they've still in some way have beat us. And this shows :( They've probably have moved on with their studies, on to the next 1 day experitment.... and more than likely don't even know of this POST anymore than when you've first posted it. Ive learned to bee bigger than people's negativity towards, whether it's foolish or intential......another person's opinion is just that ....they're opinion not facts or for me to dwell on it and cloud up my space. I feel by you posting this rugrats of college ungrades you allowed them to subconciously invade your space. Don't allow it Morgan.....be better, be bigger! Do you and let people be whatever. We can't change people, but we sure as hell can change they way we think of them....have a happy weekend.

P.S. Let this post stay as this post, give them no more "letters" they're not deserving of another round, in which they probably won't see.
