Every 6 months or so I play around with new widgets offered by TypePad to see if I like them. I'm adding stuff and taking 'em off in the next couple of days as I see fit. You can help me out by doing what they say do so I can REALLY see if I like what they do.
Hopefully you'll notice the new stuff. Witcha evil azzes. ROFL!
So...if you visited the site this weekend you saw that one of my photos was pirated by Radio One / Black Planet and used in the MOST INSULTING WAY POSSIBLE to a woman who loves, cherishes and RESPECTS her husband more than anything in the world. Question From SIP
It was brought to my attention by someone who reads their site, Elev8, and this site as well. The person has been reading my site long enough to know that I do NOT give permission for my image to be used to ANYONE so they let me know.
By the way...again...THANK YOU.
So...I went to the site and saw it with my own two eyes and then I did some research and found the names and email addresses to whom I needed to contact with a tongue-in-cheek version of a Cease and Desist letter:
By the way TypePad...this is cool and all but can you focus LESS on stuff like this and FIX THE DAMN BLACKBERRY COMMENTING ISSUE? I mean dude...we USED to could do comments from our Blackberry and now we can't and haven't been since you FIXED ish. And then...you piss us off even FURTHER by making a new hot.shit azz iPhone app.
WE PAY FOR THIS SHIT SO REMEMBER THAT! WE.PAY.FOR.THIS.SHIT!
Hmmmm...if you download this...does that mean this is kinda like stealing? Um...Imma need clarification on this cuz I am NOT trying to be up in court battling Jay Z about his song. I thought it was going to put in a player so you could just click play and listen. If this is really a download...then this feature SUCKS. HEAR THAT TYPEPAD! THIS SUCKS! YALL TRYING TO GET US LOCKED THE HELL UP!
FIX THE DAMN BLACKBERRY APP AND LEAVE THIS KINDA ISH ALONE BEFORE WE GET SUED HELL!
Please don't send me emails asking me to forward you a recipe I posted on the site. Please utilize the Google toolbar that I have taken the time to include to make it easier for folks to find something they'd like to use as a resource. Surprisingly...if you put in the words SMOTHERED PORK CHOPS...it pulls up the recipe that I took the time to type out for you to try.
Again...I've had a rough day so yeah...I'm being snippy.
What do you think? Would you have rescinded the offer? Did the fact she said she'd hate the work mean that she wouldn't DO the work? Do you hate YOUR work but are able to function?
What do you think if the Cisco employee who was on Twitter during work hours? Do you think he/she was unprofessional? What about folks who put her picture all out there and whatnot to include her private information? Doesn't it seem as if folks got real petty and went too damn far?
I've just had the most EXCELLENT customer service from Rachelle of Designs by Rachelle! She did the re-design of my blog a couple of years ago and last night when I was setting up the site to have some new behind the scenes stuff put in I, of course, knocked something loose. LOL!
I sent her an email and she fixed it without blinking an eye in little to know time at all. I don't even know what in the heck she did but she did it and QUICK too!
As I have shared with yall before...if you're looking for a new website design or blog design, Rachelle is DEFINITELY the person to hit up. She does book covers, etc. Girl is mad talented!
I'm having a few things tinkered with behind the scenes. Please bear with me.
Sorry for the inconvenience and the geniuses at work tell me it should be up and running by noon. Once it is back it will look and operate the same (HOPEFULLY) to you so no worries that I'm changing anything that will affect Tiffany In Houston (witcha cheeky azz...ROFL!).
Well...I just heard from the TypePad Connect folks and was informed that the Blackberry browsers do not support TypePad Connect and won't for quite some time until they move out of Beta testing. Well...that won't be for a long time apparently so I had to disable it so that I can stop getting hate mail from folks who can't access from their Blackberry and old cheeky azz messages from Tiffany In Houston.
Hi guys! I've integrated the site to be able to utilize TypePad Connect which is sposed to be this super dooper commenting feature which makes the comments more community minded. Tiffany In Houston just let me know that she couldn't view comments any longer from her Blackberry so I tried and found I couldn't either. Please let me know of any additional problems you have noticed so I can send the information to the TypePad people.
Whatever can I do in 2009 to top it? Don't be surprised to know that major stuff has been in the works since September folks...and I'm just WAITING till the stars are all aligned. :)
I never talk about my haters but I want to thank you guys PERSONALLY for the hits (you know I have your IP addresses labeled...ROFL!) because without you...well...let's just say...YOU MOTIVATE ME.
TOMORROW IS A NEW YEAR FOLKS! WRITE IT DOWN AND MAKE IT HAPPEN!
Weezy: Say bruh...I googled black eyed peas and cabbage today. Me: Um...okay. Weezy: Why was your site like number 10. Me: You sound surprised. Weezy: Um...we gotta make some money off that dang site. Robby: Who's WE?
Follow me if you dare! I'm not posting my twit twittings here...they gonna be on www.twitter.com. I'm MonicaMingo. No space. Oh...and SIP REALLY likes to twit and shall. (Insert evil chuck here. Not chuckLE...but chuck. Half a chuckle...TWICE the dementia.)
Aiight...the Chatbox people annoyed me this morning with all kinds of weird ads on the Chatbox. Um...NO. Now I realize that since I was using the free version I shouldn't have been annoyed...but I was because I'm a spoiled brat who wants her way. :)
N E WAY...
So I upgraded the service and am actually paying for it now so if you want to set a profile so you don't have to type in your info every time...you can. Just click on the little thingy that says Profile and have at it. You can also delete your own messages now if you end up with typos you don't wanna be associated with. LOL!
I'm going to make it longer too just as soon as I have an opportunity to.
