Hello Gosselin Fans! Thank you for the recent show of support as I get a whole new group of fans and readers. When I started this blog on July 31st, it was the first day I had stumbled on GWOP. They were discussing their stats and bragged about a day when an astonishing amount of 20,000+ readers got onto their site in one day. I was floored. Where did these people come from and why did they care about that blog? Well needless to say they were relatively new too, and the stuff that they were writing were insanely cruel and hard to believe about any family, let alone Jon & Kate. I just thought it would be important for me as a mom to write my own little fan blog and state in my own way that bullies come in all forms and no one should be reading or believing the crap they wrote because there were 2 sides to every story.
So now here we are in November. And even though they have over a million visits since they started, they basically died down to barely a crawl compared to their July hay day. Nosy people still come and of course there 50 regulars that blog every hour, but the juicy gossip proved to be fruitless and the mods gave up posting anything good. Its now blogging one or twice a week and letting the readers comment 200+ times a day. I am proud to say I tried to keep in interesting and had something relevant to say almost every day. So while I cant promise I will continue every day, I will keep up my blog until theres a good reason not to do so (or I hit lotto).
Facebook Cleans House, Can the others Do The Same?
I was forced onto Facebook recently by my friends who are hooking up next year for our big High School Reunion. That gives me less than a year to get Lipo, Botox, a breast lift, and hair extensions (lol). When I got onto the Jon & Kate fanpage I was super psyched to meet some great fans. But just like what I feel is happening ot Cafe Mom, the posts got nasty real quick. With no real moderator (the Jon & Kate fan group which is different has a moderator) people were basically ripping each other apart and facebook itself had to delete some of the pages. Trolls were starting threads and making up downright lies. Thank goodness Facebook have the page for TLC to completely take apart and re-haul. Now with 215,000 fans on the on the page chances are its not going to take long before someone tries to start something up again. But Im glad to see that so far its all fans, and all good. My Space is really good for having some pretty cool fan pages as well if your looking ot make some Gosselin friends ;)
