We all know that our 20's can be some of the busiest of our lives. Trying to juggle new careers/school, friendships and relationships, PLUS blogging and being a part of an awesome community is not easy.
So over our time here, we've seen some great bloggers who have now dissappeared. Here are some of my favorite:
Brianne was hilarious. She's still pretty active on twitter and blogs from time to time (her blog). I am currently trying to locate the video of her awesome song/rap about being fat + chicken nuggets.
So 20sb, which 20sb users do you miss? Maybe if we make enough noise, they will come back!
I remember questioning her, and getting my head bit off by other members. I smelled bullshit the first time I read a post. It was a ploy to get views. Her blog was about nothing at all, and people ate it up. Sad.
It's gauche to say "I told you so", Clayton.
Wish I knew what 'gauche' meant...
No I know exactly how you feel. Myself and several friends of mine also tried to call her out (we knew her by her original personality) and we were attacked and called bullies and "mean girls." It wasn't a very pleasant time.
Oh for crying out loud. How sad.
Oh I so want to hear more about this. I suspected the same but then I felt bad, but I was wondering again recently.
Wow, I didn't know this!!!!!
She got caught in all of her lies. It's a fact and what sucks is how many people she fooled. People enjoyed her writing and her story and it was all a lie. It's sad that she felt she needed to do that.
The weird thing is that a LOT of it was a lie, but not all of it was. I know her real name and some of what she mentioned is verifiable via Google. But much of it, including the premise behind the blog and her boyfriend Dane (at least the version of him she presented), was not.
That said, I miss her, too. She was fun and a good writer, and I think she still would have been if she'd stuck to the truth.
(Was she really online when she was supposedly having her surgery? Really? You'd think she'd at least know enough not to do that.)
Yes. She was. You'd think someone would stay away from the internet when trying to make your story believable... but yeah.
This is the part of it that bothers me the most. There were a lot of things about her that I liked, but not knowing what's true or not, I can't tell if I like the actual person, or a fictional character. I feel like if she'd just been herself instead of hiding behind a lie and tricking us into giving her sympathy, things would have gone a lot differently, and she would have been a well liked member here.
