So a brand really likes the content you’ve created for them. They hire other bloggers to promote that content. I wake up to see my child’s photo on a social account of the last person I would ever want to associate myself with. In fact, while I was literally getting ready to give birth to Mia in the hospital in 2013 she was online tweeting and trying to destroy my business just as she has done for years, since Kaila was 2.
It wouldn’t be such a big deal if this woman didn’t harass me during TWO of my pregnancies making them both miserable for me. After the first pregnancy I listened to all the advice like “ignore it and it will stop” like I always had. It did not. It only got worse.
Last year in 2012 while I was in the hospital giving birth to my third child it happened again. Online tweeting, I would think offline emailing, trying again to destroy the business I was working hard to build. How would you feel if your memories from pregnancy were of you crying about some stranger online who just wants to destroy you all because she was jealous of the relationship you had with your own sister? How would you feel if you were at the hospital with your husband and it’s one of the best days of your life and some stranger is again online tweeting and trying to destroy the business you have grown so your memory from that day is again you sitting there crying.
Not crying because you’re happy that you just gave birth to your child but crying because you just feel so helpless that some stranger can affect your life so badly. Crying because during one of the best times of your life a stranger was online telling lies and again trying to hurt every part of what’s important most in your life. Really just ask yourself how would you feel? I know how I felt and everyone around me just said to ignore it and it would go away, but it didn’t not even on one of the best days of my life…..
As a mother I would never do that to another woman. I’ve grown up since this all started and I’m stronger now than I ever was before.
So I am asking them to have her not use my image, and told them they could even take off some payment I received for not using my image.
What would you do?
