I have been in contact with Amalah, before any posts have been done. She has received a sincere apology. Yes I made 2 mistakes 3 years ago, but is that a reason to trash my family? My blog is open and available for anyone to read, I have nothing to hide, so when accusations and lies float around in one circle of bloggers who I have never met or heard of, its strange how they all know everything about me, which they dont, that is my point.
Below is my reply to Beth at ShePosts.com, read below for a little more background on how the past history with her husband (again part of this group of bloggers I do not know) yet they know everything about us?
As far as the lies, accusations, and rumors spread on sheposts.com and avitable.com, both have combed my blog, and have not found any of the accusations they claim (because their accusations are false). As far as my kids, they are happy, my family loves me, and my husband is a great father and man. And for all the other insults and lies said about me and my family, especially my husband, there is nothing to back these hateful comments. Good to get the full story before attacking or insinuating you know everything about someone’s family, kids, and husband. They do not know us, but they say they do which is great to back up their proof?
Here are a fraction of screenshots of this group going on and on with hateful comments to my husband on twitter. Beth Avant’s twitter is https://twitter.com/#!/hipmamab so you can see in her bio she is married to @PetCobra. It came together after the sheposts.com and avaitable.com articles about us created flat out lies, and then the past history cleared it up why they had such a issue with us.
There unfortunately is more to the history of why this group of bloggers Beth Avant from Sheposts.com, her husband Jason @Petcobra also the owner of @DadCentric, and Avitable.com hate my husband and why they fueled these rumors that were biased and slanted to back up their insults, but like with many bloggers, they leave out this history and the entire context. The barrage of insults on twitter towards my husband come from this group, which is easy to see since prior to this they talk with each other constantly, but again they leave that out, their affiliation with each other. And many of the comments, negative ones, are from people in this group, people I have never heard of or even talked to (yet they claim to know our whole lives, kind of creepy). It has become clear that this group of bloggers are online personal friends and even friends with a couple of ‘editors’ at babble.com, with some of them recently getting writing jobs at Babble as dad writers. Not fair to use media outlets to trash people you dislike and leave out the history between them. A problem with the internet, leaving out all the facts and information to trick people into taking one side over another, based on reach or lac of reach by both sides. These problems have happened on babble before.
Trashing my husband and creating lies about him, just out of dislike is not fair when he had nothing to do with any of this. Screenshots help to back up claims, not just typed words from people who dislike others. Please take that into consideration.
I just want people to see that there was more of a motive to trash my husband and myself, and not just objectively about exposing my mistake or making this a lesson for people to learn from.
