WIWW & The Email That Made Me Mad

Yesterday, I had an odd experience. I opened my email to find this:

"Jenna, I am annoyed. I went to follow you on Instagram, and yours is set to PRIVATE!!!!! Uhmmm...why? That's just not fair. Why won't you let me see your pics? You have a BLOG--you put everything out there for people to see, so why would you have a SECRET INSTAGRAM? I'm thinking about un-following you altogether because of this. Why would I want to follow someone that is hiding things from me? Your job is to be open and honest with your readers, right? You should change your mind and make it so that everyone can see it. THANKS, (This Person Who Shall Remain Nameless)"


All I can say is WOW. I wasn't really sure what I had just read. I mean, really?? Really?? 
Listen, lady, 98% of the time I am a nice person (i.e. the Mommy Claws post), but man SOMETIMES...
it is just NOT ok to say to NOT say something. I don't want this happening again. 

So this is what I shall say to you, Person Who Shall Remain Nameless: you have every right not to follow my blog. You have every right to unfollow me in any way you choose..but I WILL NOT tolerate rudeness like this. This is MY BLOG. MY LIFE. I choose what I want people to see. I don't owe you anything. Love me or hate me--that is YOUR choice. I sincerely hope you WON'T follow me at this point, because honestly, I don't want crazies like you taking up my time and watching my every move. Thanks. 

MOVING ON......
We are taking family pics this weekend, and I need YOUR HELP!! :) I am debating between two outfits, and I need you to vote on which one I look the best in (ha). 

Be honest (but not rude, please, I've had enough of that lately).

  2. I have the blogger rage being sent your way. Not everything we do as bloggers is public. For example, my Facebook page is private. I don't put it on my blog, and I am only friends with a few other bloggers on there (ones that I consider friends). There is no code that says "as a blogger you MUST make EVERYTHING about your life public". Gah. I am more mad about it now then when you first said something.

  3. Ew what a rude email! Just because you have a blog you should have to share everything with the world? My instagram is and always will be private.

    p.s. You are gorgeous. I love both outfits but the first is too cute not to wear!

    ReplyDelete
  4. You are adorable. I CANNOT believe that email! It's even worse than I expected! Crazy!

    ReplyDelete
  5. what the wha?? that email is insane! you handled it well, though! props to you!
    I love both outfits... what is everyone else wearing? i'm leaning towards #2, but either will look great!

    ReplyDelete
  6. um... what?! That is the weirdest e-mail. My instagram is private. I don't necessarily want EVERY picture I take to be available to the public (partially because a lot of them aren't good).

    I think both outfits are cute, but I like #2 better. I tried to use the poll thing but I don't think it worked.

    ReplyDelete
  7. wow, seriously? so creepy it's kind of awkward...

    anyways... both are cute but choice one is just so springy.

    ReplyDelete
  8. HAHAHAHAHA. Oh my gosh people are so nuts, I'm sorry you had to be the in the line of fire of this woman's craziness.

    ReplyDelete
  9. How do you even respond to an email like that?!?

    & I like option number 1 :)

    ReplyDelete
  10. Huh. Qhen i read this i thought, maybe they are joking?? But... maybe not haha

    ReplyDelete
  11. Wow... some people have nerve!

    I like Option #1!

    ReplyDelete
  12. You were so much nicer than I would have been. Good for you!

    ReplyDelete
  13. How do people like this exist? That is just freaking weird! Mine is set to private and always will be! You hit the nail on the head when you said, i CHOOSE what and what not to share. Gee whiz, is anything considered private these days?

    ReplyDelete
  14. You are so cute. I love this. Get that ginger-claw version out more often!!! You really don't have to stand for that. And as bloggers, we share our STORY... not our lives :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh, and wait! I want to suggest the first outfit, only because I think it's more mommy looking! BUT, you look so chic in the pink. Both are safe choices! I'd try to pick out your hubby and Davis' outfits and then see which one goes better as a whole!

    ReplyDelete
  16. To choice of what to make public and what to keep private has always been one that I've struggled with.
    I mean, how do you know? How can you choose? Will the things I say now come back to bite me later? ... Or will anyone really care what I have to say?
    It's tough. But ultimately, the choice is ours to make. Not someone elses'. I get that people want to know everybody's dirty laundry, but actually demanding it is pretty outright crazy.

    Alsooooo, I saw option one and totally went "OOOOOHHHHHHH" so that's my vote :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. So frustrating! I'm sorry you had to go through that. I like your response : )

    And I'd go with option 1! Option 2 is very cute and I love the turquoise, but I think option 1 is sooo pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  18. that email up there is disgusting.
    you know what this does to me, jenna..
    i get my blogger claws out!

    and i love option 2. it's perfect for spring. perfect!

    ReplyDelete
  19. ahhRuRUUDe. what the heck.

    and ps. can we still be friends cuz i haven't emailed you yet. boo on me. totally going to the dang gmail account now. :)

    on the subject of outfits, lovelovelove them both. literally can't decide. are the boys dressing up or down?!

    xo

    ReplyDelete
  20. how rude of that person! Yes we still do like to keep some parts of our lives private!
    I absolutely love outfit number 1 :) So adorable and springy!

    Hope you have a fabulous day love! xo

    ReplyDelete
  21. People are seriously so weird...like wtf, get a life crazy!

    Anyhoo, both outfits are cute, but I love #1! :)

    ReplyDelete
  22. What a troll. Don't let creeper people like this ruin your day! Definitely outfit #1!

    ReplyDelete
  23. That lady is crazy. If you want to set something to private that is completely acceptable! Good for you for sticking up for what you want!

    Also I think Option 1 is adorable

    ReplyDelete
  24. WOW.
    that was very ready of her!!
    I mean if you want your life to be private than so be it!! why does she care if she has to wait to follow you on something, unless of course she wants to stalk you!!!

    people need to get a life & stop trying to be other people!!
    I sure hope your week gets better from people being rude!!!

    ps. Option #1 is way adorable!! cant wait to see family pictures

    xoxo

  25. Oh NO way! .. that was THE worst email EVER! ... There is a way to go about things and that was the WORST possible one in history! .. good for you for standing your ground and setting them straight! I agree with some of the other ladies... just because we have blogs.. and share things.. does not mean our entire life is paraded around... and doesnt mean we cannot keep things to ourselves sometimes! wow! Love Option 1 :) voted! hugs ...

    ReplyDelete
  26. Why don't you give your cell phone number out while you're at it? Some people are crazy, I tell ya.

    I love option #1. I'm a sucker for anything mustard. Besides actual mustard. Is that strange?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Um, Gross. She better not come my way or I'll give her someone to unfollow!:)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Wow! Honestly, it is respectable that you have some things that are private. Besides, that is YOUR right!
    I voted option 2 . I love the color combination. Although option one has an awesome color combination too! :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. That email was seriously sent to you???? Who the hell do people think they are?! Goodness. It's your life. You do what you want with it, you show what you want..... Some people are ridiculous.

    xoxoxox

  30. HAHAHAHAH im dying.... that is so funny.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Outfit One girl - and never forget: Haters will always hate! xo

    ReplyDelete
  32. Love that first outfits for pics & whatttt that person that emailed you, not nice :-/

    ReplyDelete
  33. I like both outfits, but I think that Outfit 2 is perfecto for family photos! It will be much easier to move in. Although, flowy skirts are kinda my thing. Okay, now I'm just confusing myself. Bah! Outfit 2!

    Love that you addressed that email on your blog, and let "cray-cray" know you wouldn't stand for that. Totally uncalled for, and even more creepy. Keep doing YOU girl!

    Meg ;)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Wow. That's one very entitled reader you have there. I didn't realize that by having a blog it meant you had to share every aspect of your life. Hm if that's the case I maybe should have thought a bit harder about starting one :S I keep a lot of things private. My last name, my husband's name, where my parents live. You know, from all those parent stalkers out there ;)
    Wow lol. That's all I have to say.
    Anyway...moving on! Option one lady!! You looked all sun shiney and happy in that one! :)

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wow crazy person email. That totally sucks that you had to get that especially when it's completely uncalled for. But well it is what it is and you can just hope the crazies go away.

    Anywhoo, I love both of them but option 1 is my favorite! The colors are so bright and fin especially in a skirt. Though pants are a more practical option sometimes so that could be something to consider.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I'm so so glad you shared that email with us! I have zero patience for rudeness in the blog world. I blog and read blogs for the positive that comes from it. I think you said it very well and I too hope that person unfollows you! And I may or may not have voted multiple times for outfit 1! :) Buuuuut, I need to know where you got your necklace in outfit 2. Love your face!!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I ended up setting my instagram to private because I don't want obsessive crazies following me! I love you with all my heart and am so proud of you for posting this!! Please please wear outfit #2- I love it!!! I want to go shopping with you because I love your style!! xo

    ReplyDelete
  38. That is such a tacky email...but I love your outfits! I would definitely go with option 2 though - it's a little simpler for a photo.

  39. Uhm, what a crazy. You're allowed to keep whatever you'd like private!

    ReplyDelete
  40. Wow, you are getting hit hard with the rudeness lately! I like option 1 the best although both are great. I just love that yellow color in photographs though!

    ReplyDelete
  41. As Michelle Tanner would say, "How rude!!!" Yes, I did just quote Full House. :)

    I love both outfit options, but I think 1 is my favorite. Maybe you should just change halfway through. :)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I really can't believe that email. seriously.. it honestly makes me want to change my instagram to private.

    Outfit #1! You look gorgeous in both!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Are you serious? I would be so creeped out! Yikes.

    BUT anyway - I like outfit #1 :)

    Love you girl - keep doing what you!
    xo

    ReplyDelete
  44. Caziness. Who does that? So childish. But moving on. I love both outfits but #1 is my fave. There...casted my vote:)

    ReplyDelete
  45. I LOVE option 1!!! And that email is RUDE and inappropriate!

    ReplyDelete
  46. you have every right to have your instagram set anyway you choose - that's why there's the option! i have gone back and forth debating on what to do with my status .. i've had it both ways. but i really hope that person has stopped following you, too!! between the crazy ups lady & this crazy email you need a vaca! haha

    oh and girl - you look gorgeous in both outfits! i lean toward 1 because it seems more 'special' for family pictures {maybe because it's a skirt? haha .. but i say go with your gut & what's most comfy for you :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Oh my word!! I can't believe someone actually sent you an email like that. They have some nerve! Oh, and I think both outfits are adorable but I think I like #1 just a little more. :)

    ReplyDelete
  48. Haha WOW! Some people... I would be really mad too.

    ReplyDelete
  49. I am not even on instagram because I didn't know you could set it to private. Ignore the email. Move on!

    I like outfit #1 too.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Yeah, I wouldn't even think twice about that email. Some people have too much time.

    I like both, but I say #2 because you have nice legs and need to feature them!! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  51. I have been thinking about starting a blog of my own - since reading blogs has become my new addiction! One of my reasons for not having started yet - is emails like the one you (and other bloggers) have received. Constructive criticism can be accepted, but downright rudeness....seriously, people?! You handled it well. Thank you for sharing!

    Oh, and outfit #2 though I like both:)

    ReplyDelete
  52. Oh the crazies... i vote option 2... but if you choose option 1 put the belt on top of the sweater. Love you!

    ReplyDelete
  53. I voted for 1! Sorry you got that horrible e-mail. What are people thinking???

    ReplyDelete
  54. Number one but without the necklace

    ReplyDelete
  55. I'm love love LOVING the skirt in outfit 1. Where did you get it?!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Yikes, what a crazy email! I guess when you put yourself out there in a public forum like blogging, you open yourself up to the crazies. Anyways, I voted for outfit 1 although I like both outfits! You can't go wrong with stripes :)

    That said, I like option one, but do love those cute skinnies!! Love the color. I'm torn.

    ReplyDelete
  62. I think some people live in an alternate reality... seriously! In other news, you look super adorable in both your outfits! I voted for the second one though... you are rockin' them jeans girl1

    ReplyDelete
  63. I love that you're going for COLOR for your photos! So much more fun than a lot of families' usual black shirts + jeans look! I like #1 because it POPS and the colors look great with your hair color!

    Thanks so much for your kind words over on my blog! :)

  66. Hey Jenna! I just found your blog from the Follow Friday link up over at Hollie Takes Notes. I just have to say that I love your response to that email! And because of it, I'm now following you! :) I completely agree with you. Just because you have a blog doesn't mean you owe anyone anything! It's your life and you can choose what you want people to see {or not see}. Anyway, I hope you have a great weekend!
