I consider the freedom in writing to be a privilege for those brave enough
to try it. Sometimes we have similar thoughts or ideas and this leads to
a similar end result. Most rational people would contact the other person
for an explanation (or to receive credit), and some just let it go.
A few weeks ago I asked someone who created a hate page for Dani mansutti
on instagram (which turned out to be Sparkle on Guru Gossiper) why she puts
so much effort into hating Dani Mansutti. And that if she was so concerned to do
something about it or stop this hatred/drama from spilling onto instagram. I
mentioned being a writer and that most of the time you can't stop people from
copying or reusing your work. Especially, if you have thousands upon thousands
of people who follow your work. It happens.
So, after we spoke on instagram she used my twitter name in my bio, and
went to my twitter only to get my Youtube channel and Blog urls. She went onto
reposting a biased side of the story using screen shots of our conversation on
instagram as well as linking all my social media accounts that she could dig up.
Sparkle went on to call me a fraud defending a fraud, and summed up all my
account stats (incorrectly I may add) to make me look bad I suppose. She never
asked to see my writing or say these nasty things directly to me, which makes
me think she loves twisting stories. I am glad to share my side of the story.
I have been a writer for over 10 years (copyrighted), and when I refer to
'my writing' I do not mean this particular blog which was only started
one year and one month ago. I will post a screenshot of the statistics
from my writing below. Three of these are still in-progress, and I have had
many more online that I have since taken down or published elsewhere.
This blog is important to me, and I am well aware that I am no where near
the following I hope to have one day. I know I am not perfect, and I never
claim to be. You may have your opinions about me, but at the end of the day
that won't affect my goals and happiness.
