I really really hope Janae doesn't read her blog.  When you are already down and someone kicks you it can just affect you so much.

What an awful humblebrag post, that wasn't really necessary. Was she this hard up for content? Don't post every day if you are scrapping the bottom of the barrel for material to write. She can't be making too much money from this blog…

I wished Brooke a happy birthday this morning, but I left out the fact that Brooke shares a birthday with my husband because I thought that would be insensitive.

I don't wish ill will on this blogger but, I wouldn't be bragging about how wonderful my marriage is after only 3.23 years. Wait until you are in the trenches for a few more years; when you have to deal with things like losing a job, losing a parent, or relocating to a different city away from your family.

Exactly why I was so incensed by it. Her content is food, her son, and the occasional ED post. All very good and well, but it stands out like a sore thumb when she suddenly posts this ode to the sanctity of marriage in the wake of Janae's horrible news.

 

Plus yeah, our marriage has copped year-long deployments, moves to other countries, depression and mental illness, and after seven years of being together I STILL don't feel qualified to be writing a list like that.

Wow….what horrible/insensitive timing! I've always wondered if she has a jealousy thing with Janae. The commenting thing on her blog weirds me out!

 

I just left this comment, but I doubt she'll let it through.

 

"The timing of this post makes me a little sad, since you are friends with Janae. Maybe I'm too sensitive, but I wish you could have delayed this post for at least a few weeks."

This comment just got through, I wonder how long it will stay:

Please take this down. In the wake of Janae’s news this is horrible insensitive. You comment on her blog like it’s your job, so you are more than aware of his situation. This should have been saved for another time. Shame on you."

 

Seriously, I am so appalled by this post, it makes me sick.  If I was Janae I would feel like I got punched in the gut.  GTFO Elizabeth, what a biotch.

Looks like it's down. WHYYYY would she leave it up after being scolded?? It's totally fair to think she may have over looked the timing but if it's now been brought to her attention how insensitive it was, why hasn't she removed the post?!!

Oh no, she not only did not take it down, but she posted this afternoon, linking to this morning's post and gushing about all the marvelous feedback she has gotten about it. 

For the most part, Im "live and let live" with these bloggers. But this is nasty. And its directed (even if it was inadvertent at first) at one of these rare bloggers that few people have anything bad to say about. Not cool.

I know I usually snark on her but at least she realized what a mistake it was and took it down. That's worth something…

I agree. I love reading both of your blogs and I know that you are an avid reader of HRG. This is a nice (albeit random) post and all…but the timing could not stink anymore.

I really thank you guys for bringing this to my attention. From the bottom of my heart I would never do anything to hurt someone. I’d written parts of this post several weeks ago and was totally insensitive the timing of posting it (not intentionally). The post will be taken down and I am calling Janae tomorrow to apologize in person.

She would never admit it but I think there was underlying meaning to that post.  She is OBSESSED with Janae…she is her watered down carbon copy…how in the world would she not realize that posting about "never getting a divorce no matter how difficult things get because that's NOT an option" and gushing about her perfect marriage was disgustingly inappropriate????  It doesn't add up to me.  She can still GTFOMI.

Maybe in some sick way she was looking for attention from Janae?  Or she didn't think anyone would call her out on this and when they did, she realized she couldn't keep it up.  I mean OF COURSE she is not going to admit "you know what guys, you're right, I was being a passive-aggressive bitch."

Not sure what compelled her to write this! I'm hardly obsessed with Janae (unlike Neon…can't think of her name??) and even I would be able to realize what a hurtful thing this would be to post. She normally writes such fluffy (re: boring, irrelevant, and time-wasting) posts but all-the-sudden decides to hand out marriage advice?! It's not even sage advice!! It's hard to think it wasn't aimed at Janae.

Maybe she just wanted an excuse to humblebrag about the fact that she has Janae's phone number and therefore they are OMGBESTFRIENDS, everybody! shutupsigh
