My thoughts on Goliath's latest Challenge
I was thinking (something I do a lot of lately) about what has been going on with this latest challenge of Goliaths. This is the way I see it. Goliath (or someone) came up with this Blog challenge. I personally didn't care for the challenge because in all fairness, it really wouldn't matter how good someone's blog was over the other, the winner is pre-determined by the number of friends and family you have already established on the internet.
Take Jules, Pearl, Chopperwoman and SquarePeg. They are all on the Clark County Chatter. They are all on Facebook. They are Chatterchicks (except Jules). Now, let's take the other side. Amy is not on facebook, not on CCC and is not a Chatterchick. Sarah is on facebook, as far as I know, not on CCC and is not a Chatterchick. Sarah decided she did not want to participate in this latest challenge. Not really sure why, except from what I ascertained on facebook, she has been major busy and has a lot of irons in the fire. Understandable. So that leaves me and Amy. I have a facebook, but most of my family and friends really don't get into the whole blog, forum thing. Most hate the CCC or don't even know it exist. Most importantly, the few that do participate on Goliath's blog and forum have made it clear I (AN) am not their favorite person. Amy and I have really not made too many fans since we have revealed the facts about Mike Moore and his past.
So, let's move forward. Amy and I decided we would work on the new blog together. We planned to do this one afternoon but I had to cancel due to a job interview. So, I believe it was that night or the next that Amy went missing (or so I thought). In light of what has transpired over the course of the past few months, I was worried about her whereabouts and state of mind (and understandably so). Her post on the forum was ominous and alarming and when I could not reach her I became very concerned. During the course of the comments on the forum (especially) from nutcase "Tony" I was a bit paranoid. Moving forward, Amy contacted me by text the next day and explained her absence and my inability to reach her. I must tell you, by then I was totally drained from what had just transpired to my own personal problems. I really had no desire to participate in the challenge and felt it would be a waste of my time and energy. That is when I found out that Amy moved forward alone and decided to set up her own blog. I am not sure how I felt about her deciding to continue alone but when I saw the encouragment she was getting I was happy for her. It didn't last long, especially when I saw the one's who were commending her, the same ones that have not been supportive of her in the past and who frankly, have called her names and ridiculed her emotional pleas to be believed. I was just sitting back and waiting for the other shoe to drop. It did.
I saw CW's post on her blog. She claims it was all in fun and that she meant no harm or disrespect towards Amy. I do not want to accuse CW of being malicious in doing this when she knew Amy would be reading it, but it was very inconsiderate to say the least. CW, she is undoubtedly a fan of Mike Moore, and has made that very clear throughout this past year. Amy has many bad feelings toward Mike Moore because of what she believes he did to their daughter so naturally she would not share CW's admiration for him. It may have seemed to Amy that CW was pouring salt in the wound. Naturally, those that have a friendship with CW are not going to see it that way. They are going to say she had no bad intentions when she posted that. I would imagine CW will become defensive and say she meant nothing by it, it was all in fun and she should not have to watch what she says 24/7. I did notice that when Amy asked CW about her ex-husband and children CW came unglued. Asking Amy not to bring her ex or child(ren) into this. Maybe, just for the sake of the challenge it would have been nice if CW would have shown Amy the same courtesy since she knew this would hurt Amy to see those comments about her Ex (the one Amy believes molested her daughter) on the blog that is involved in the challenge.
After seeing this transpire, I know I made the right decision in not participating in this latest challenge. I think Goliath had the right motives in trying to start this whole challenge thing. I truly believe his heart was in the right place. But in the end, it is still going to be us against them. The scale will never truly be balanced. It is sad too, because I know that two women are both going to end up being hurt. One because she knows the truth about this man, and the other because she will never believe the truth about this man. Sad.
