Just saw this and wanted to say I know her personally & have for years. Although I do not follow her blog, and we have not discussed this at length, she is a sweet, kind person and I stand behind her 100%.

We are all seasoned online community members. We all know how people, especially under the veil of anonymity, can gang up, get dramatic, conjure stories, and embellish the truth.

We all know she lost control and didn't deliver on promises. I'm not going to speculate or base any decision on what I read on the internet.  I've known her online for over 10 years, and I do believe she had no malicious intent.

Think about it, she had a very successful blog -- success many of you only dream of with your own blogs.  I do not believe for one minute she wanted to throw all that away so she could scam money from people.

The last thing I want is a lynch mob on ST like I'm seeing elsewhere.  We're better than that.

I did speak with her, and she wanted me to share with you all that she's a mess, very sorry, has apparently rectified the situation, and does not anticipate any major legal issues.

I think at this time, it's just better to assume she was not malicious, keep her in our loving and positive thoughts, and hope she is able to soon overcome this mess and get on with her life.


ITA.  I've been following it and while I was shocked to hear the stories, I didn't want to bring it here, bc in a way, it should be a safe place and I did not want to "drag her name through the mud" as they say.

IMO it was not malicious, I imagine she had every intention of fulfilling orders then used the money for something else, got too busy to take care of the order, then didn't have the money to refund.  I cannot imagine someone with an online presence, with pictures, and name, and personal life would outwardly do something to harm so many.  I also think the crowd is being melodramatic.  I recall someone claiming they were so upset they'd vomitted.

In any case, I hope she's rectifying it and hope she can maybe restart some of the blogging and forum stuff anonymously.

Oh how awful! I really hope she gets it all resolved quickly. I wish her the best.
