Update On How Sweet It Is.

I received an email this morning from Bree of What Matters Most. She found Gina's blog under a different web address....http://lisaasbeads.blogspot.com/. I do not know if the giveaway is still going on. I have not received any email from Gina or this Lisaa about a change of sites, web addresses..nothing. All I know is what I said earlier..she told me her mother is sick and she was selling her contacts and that Lisaa would be handling everything including the giveaway/party hop, this was late Thursday night and the last communication I had with Gina. So why doesn't anyone know? If it is legit why was there not an immediate post to let everyone know what was going on? Why in the span of one day were all social media sites deleted? How was everyone supposed to know that the blog is under a NEW web address. Ugh I am so tired, tired of feeling, tired of trying to deal with emails asking me what's going on because they can not find the site, twitter, email...nothing.

I do not know! I do not know how to reach her...reach anybody and I am done. Thank you Bree for sending me the email with the link. If this was a legit change of owners the way they went about it is/was very, very wrong. No one was notified, no explanations given....just wrong.
You would think that me as a "partner" of the party hop would have been given a heads up so I could at least posted about it...but nope nothing...big fat zero. I hope this LisaasBeads keeps with the giveaway and picks a lucky winner to get 1K, but I am leery and want nothing more to do with it.

I am sorry lovelys if my post last night may have offended you because of my language. Apparently someone on my Facebook page made a point of saying it was "unacceptable"....hello freedom of speech. This is my blog, my feelings, my emotions and I will not apologize for how I express myself on MY blog. I guess she never saw my post about the lady who spoke nasty about my daughter and her dog...lol

Thank you everyone whom has posted about feeling sorry for me but please do not. Gina honored the agreement between her and I and as I stated in my disclaimer on the original party post I was paid for helping her promote the social hop. This is about you all and the people who trusted me enough to sign up for this event when I told you what an awesome fun time I thought we would all have and I was so excited to see who got to win $1000! I mean wow that is huge. Now who the heck knows what is going on.

Is there a way you can remove your name. She is still advertising that you are apart of this. I see this is very Shady.. If your in the middle of a giveaway you dont delete accts and make a new blog page. Wait until afterwards if you feel the need to change your blog location. Thats just IMO.

Thanks for the update! I left a comment on Lisaa's site. None of this makes sense and it's ridiculous (and not your fault).

Hi there, thanks for posting and letting us know. And BTW, I don't mind your language one bit! Well called for :)

As someone who has had lots of experience with paypal, you can make a complaint. I just now opened a disput with them for the $5 I invested for the hop. No $5 won't break my bank but I dispise dishonesty so I did it.

Anyone else who wants to can sign into paypal and open a dispute. I told them I had paid an entry fee for a service that did not exist and was not provided. I will escalate it to the claim once I get the go ahead and paypal will investigate.

Best we can do for now and better than nothing. Thanks again for being so honest with us.

Hugs,
Deb

Oh no....I'd try to have your name removed from being involved if you can - that totally sucks

Omg this is terrible. I usually just skim past my posts on facebook but of course this one caught my eye. I am new to the blogging world and at this point don't have any extra money to do something like this, but I have thought about how much attention it would bring to my new site to have a big giveaway like this one. It is terrible that one person would cause such distrust amongst some great mommmy bloggers. I am a new follower of yours and will be posting a link to your blog on my site- to warn others out there. http://onemoreflewoverthecuckoo.blogspot.com/

Oddly enough, I think Lisaasbeads.com is the same person. She just changed the blog name it seems. The blogs tabs for about me, contact, i do, etc still say gina-parker.blogspot.com.

Sadly, it is this kind of person that gives bloggers a bad name.

I am victim, i paid Gina 150 dollars to provide PR services, we communicate first few weeks never heard from her. see seems to be a nice lady i am shock about it. she has remove her name from FB contact list and block any form of comms. she briefly forwards a few fans to my FB fan page which i losing 10 a day or so. i have raised a dispute with paypal hoping my funds maybe recovered. Blogmania last year was amazing. Bree contacted me last week and put forward to some trusted bloggers and presently working with. its highly unfair for anyone to do such a thing.

FYI, I tried sending Gina an email yesterday to try to resolve it amicably and her gmail account no longer works.
