Kristi is back!
Most excellant news!
If you don’t already follow her check out her blog at:
ALL RIGHT! ALL RIGHT!
Add me to the list!
At first I thought I would stay away from the list thinking that maybe my absence might calm things down, but there’s 7 more nasty messages in my box so staying off the list isn’t helping. So now I figure, if I’m going to receive the hate mail I might as well get it because I am standing for something good.
I will not be bullied by these idiots and I will tag things the way I want and I will not hide in the shadows at the risk of annoying them.
If they want to stay in their small dark, lonely holes so be it, let them make their own tag. How about that? But the rest of us who thrive on the camaradarie and friendship here should not have to give into their hatred.
So sign me up Ashley!
And while you’re at it sign up LOOPYLOU JOVI! She’s back! And if there was ever a good sign of why there should be a ressurection of the BONJOVIFAMILY that is it!
Let me hear an AMEN!
So lots of people use the Anon for good, not evil.
Thank you Anon. What a sweet message. You touched my heart.
We are proud of it, but it’s not about the two of us, it’s about all the people who care about one another on here. Who make an effort to communicate. Who support one another. It’s these things that take the blogging experience from just being about posting photos and thoughts to an interactive one where you give to others.
I told Ashley last night that I never felt she needed my permission to ressurect the BONJOVIFAMILY and that I gave her my blessing. I just want to put that out there for everyone to know. So in case you were holding back from going on the list because you thought I would be offended, now you know how I feel.
And Anon…you didn’t have to go on Anon to say these nice things…I’m here if you ever need to talk <3
xoxo Gayle / Jovimama always <3
I think it was out of concern. Along with the nasty anons I got several sweet messages that reminded me why I started the BONJOVIFAMILY in the first place…
There’s a lot of love and big hearts around this place no matter what anyone else is trying to infer…
I would like to send out some Jovilove to all of my friends who sent me such sweet and thoughtful messages this weekend.
Love you all…
xoxo Your Jovimama always <3
So I should be in Toronto right now.
I should be convincing BabyJ to go scope out the Air Canada Venue…maybe the boys might be doing a soundcheck…
We should be having a beverage or two in the lounge of the Harbour Castle hotel where we stayed last time…
But no. I am watching Fright Night with Thebeautyqueenfrommars eating Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups that I will regret later…
Meanwhile, somewhere in Toronto some guy named John (no kidding) is probably excited as hell about the concert tomorrow night and the great deal he got on my tickets…
Not a happy Jovigirl…
Hmmmm. What should I go as for Halloween?
Oh I know. A SAD BON JOVI FAN who should be on a plane today heading to Toronto to see her favorite band but isn’t…
This might be your lucky day.
I purchased some tickets for Friday’s show and cannot use them.
Message me privately if you are interested.
Please stop. If you posess even a shred of kindness, humanity or compassion just stop.
Once upon a time, not so long ago…
There was a group of bloggers on Tumblr who became good friends. Such good friends that we talked on an almost daily basis, many of us spent waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much time on here, did nice things for one another and we watched out for each other. Such good friends that the phrase was coined “We are more than Bon Jovi Fans, We are the BONJOVIFAMILY.”
Over time many of those bloggers have disappeared. No time for Tumblr. Lost faith in our band. Lost faith in friendships.
What still remains is the idea. That a group of people with similar interests, love and passion for a band and their music can come together and share a friendship, a bond.
Bon Jovi Tumblr should be fun. It was never meant to be a competition. These are just blogs. Just pictures and thoughts. But behind the blogs are people. Real people with feelings. Are any of us perfect? No. Have we all made mistakes on here? Hurt someones feelings, sent a nasty message, made a post someone objected to? Probably.
Last night a blogger reached out to me. We had not talked in a long time. For whatever reasons she had distanced herself from our fandom quite sometime ago but no matter what, she will always be a member of the BONJOVIFAMILY to me.
Over the last year she has been targeted with many accusatory messages from many of my friends. Many of the bloggers here who post regularly and are well known in the tags have been the recipients of nasty anon messages for quite sometime now. Someone with the intention of cyberbullying us. I myself have received some horrible messages trying to turn me against my friends. Some of them were just completely rude and offensive. If they are anything like what my other friends are receiving, I understand why they are so eager to find out who is behind all the crap.
However…I beg of all of you involved. As your Jovimama. As your friend. As someone who has been down a similar road and been involved in a terrible feud on here which has since been resolved and that I regret every time I talk to BonJovi-News who has become one of my best friends on here… PLEASE think before you accuse someone of this.
Until someone has a way to track an anon right down to their url address everything you assume may be wrong. The person who is being accused of all this is adamant that she is not behind the nasty anon messages.
I know I have no right to tell anyone what to do around here, however I felt that I could not sit back and be silent about this. I love you all. You know that. I just believe that without real, hard evidence this person is innocent. What started out with trying to defend ourselves from cyberbullying is ironically turning into a group of really wonderful, kind people cyberbullying someone else. We are better than that.
Please leave this person alone.
