Disclaimer/Update/Whatever: When I wrote this blog I was unfamiliar with “Associated Content” and was still under the impression that Yahoo writers were actual journalists.
I’ve had a real problem with Yahoo and their writers for a long time. Now I’m no wordsmith, but I don’t get paid to do this. This is a personal blog and I don’t claim to be a professional writer and I don’t write for an actual online publication.
The writers over at Yahoo consistently make SERIOUS spelling and grammatical errors (and if I’m noticing them then you know they are bad because as some of you have witnessed – it is a sad sight when I forget to click the spell check button), and often times they write shit that is downright not true or simply beyond ridiculous. I use Yahoo mail so I often get sucked in by their attention grabbing headlines – even though I try not to read them because it only makes me angry when I do.
So tonight I couldn’t sleep, so I’m wandering around the internet looking for random Housewife stuff and stumbled across this recap that really pissed me off. Read it and you will understand why. (Don’t miss the part where he claims that viewers were stunned as they watched Kyle rip into Camille like a dog for no apparent reason. WTF???)
This guy clearly didn’t watch the show, or simply doesn’t posses the brain power to comprehend what he see’s on the television. Either way, shit like this really annoys me.
UPDATE: Here is the blog Jenn posted today.
I’m pretty sure it’s a response to this blog here and a general “fuck you” to Lynn (poor Lynn, she always get’s dragged into the drama, doesn’t she?) You can read it and decide for yourself.
Just to be clear, my comments up top were in no way meant to insult anyone except the guy who wrote the BS recap and the bad writers who get published on Yahoo. It appears as though Jenn took what I said personal because in addition to her blog, she also blocked me on twitter when I asked her about it.
Here are a few things I don’t understand:
– Why would Jenn take this personal when she clearly knows how to spell and knows I enjoy her Teen Mom recaps?
– How was I supposed to know that Jenn writes for Yahoo when her blog is on Chicago Now?
– Why would Jenn be defending associated content writers? Despite what some of you have been saying, I don’t think she’s a bad writer. So clearly she should be able to see how awful MANY articles on Yahoo are. So if she also writes for Yahoo, I think she should be even more upset than me about all the bad writers out there giving Yahoo content a bad name.
And last but not least
– I don’t understand all the digs at Lynn in Jenn’s blog. Why is she dragging Lynn into this for no reason? If you have a problem with me or Lynn or whoever, why not just say it? Why all the underhanded digs? That’s LuAnn’s style and shit like that really annoys me. There is one thing I can’t stand in life – and that’s fakeness. If you have something to say: say it.
I find this whole situation to be rather ridiculous, but I thought I would just lay it all out here so you all know what’s going on. If Jenn ever decides to stop ignoring me and explain where all her anger is coming from, I’d be happy to hear it. My comments are always open to everyone (even trolls) and I don’t block anyone on twitter. So if she ever decides to speak to me face to face (or avatar to avatar – wtv) she knows where to find me.
