My question is in regards to your “Friday Emails” column. I know people email dumb questions before they’ve even read through the site but I’m just curious if you’ve ever considered posting a FAQ’s column. I understand that your ads create revenue and that people searching through the pages gets more hits, but it would help people like me that truly do dig before hitting “compose”.
Comment: If I put up a “Frequently Asked Questions” column, it might take me a year to post it considering everything I get asked is repetitive for the most part. If people email me personally a repetitive question now, I just refer them to the Friday columns for the last three weeks and tell them it’s already been answered, go look for it. Hey, it’s better than ignoring the email and them sending it again.
I think the easiest way to know the answers is to just read the columns every time they come out. I swear, they’ll pretty much answer all your questions. Yes, I know they’re long. Yes, I know they’re wordy. And yes, I know I ramble. But the answers are in there. I promise.
What’s up with Ashley’s silly band bracelets?
Comment: Well, since I don’t have direct access into Ashley Spivey’s fashion line and she doesn’t consult me on her choice of bracelets every morning, I have no f***ing clue. However, I decided to see if I could actually find an answer to this, so I checked any fan pages she might have, and I’m glad I did. According to one of her fan pages, the green bracelet she wears is a “Done Vida” bracelet, meaning “Donate Life”. It’s an organ donor bracelet. Her sister had this to say on one of her fan pages:
“She wears the green bracelet because our father passed away two years ago. When he passed, we made the decision to donate all his organs to organ donation. He saved several lives and gave two people better sight.”
Well, that’s awesome. I’m glad I went and found that. Makes me like her that much more. Now I’m gonna be pissed when we don’t get to see her anymore after Monday. No more accent, no more bikini shots, and no more spinner jokes. Oh well.
If Emily decides not to be the next Bachelorette, do you think that they might ask Madison? They could rework her reasons for leaving into something noble and full of integrity. She could be like Brad and say, “I was not ready then, but I am now”.
Comment: Yeah, sure. Madison will totally be the next “Bachelorette”. I’ve heard Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson have already been cast as two of her suitors, too. And one of the 1-on-1 dates will be Madison and Taylor having a sit down dinner with a pack of wolves. I swear, I’ve never read any of the books or seen any of the movies. I’m getting that all from the previews and I what I hear from rabid female fans who can’t stop talking about that garbage. It’s a freakin’ movie. Quit getting so hysterical over vampires and werewolves for goodness sakes.
This one came Fri, Jan. 21st:
Love reading your posts on your sites. Lots of great information and thank you for sharing with us. I thought you said you were going to post the four finalists on the Bachelor show by now. Any further updates?
Comment: I swear, I’m right on the brink of busting out with some BIG news regarding that. I think I’m almost there in regards to who the final four is. I mean, I’m just finally getting to remember these girls names and attach their faces to them. But soon enough, man, it’s gonna be like the talk of the internet when I tell everyone who the final four is. I’m SO excited! I’m sooooooo close, I can feel it. Please hang with me and keep reading. I know you won’t be disappointed. Thanks so much for being such a great fan and reading every post I’ve written since Dec. 8th. You have no idea how much that means to me.
Really enjoy your spoilers – thanks!!
My question for you is – do you have a real job or has writing spoilers become your full-time paying job now (due to the advertising)?
Comment: I’ve had a real job all my life. This has always been something I did on the side. Started it in 2003, but didn’t make a cent until Feb. of last year (the 2nd month of Jake’s season) when the advertising first went up. Now, I’ve been fortunate enough in the past year to grow the fan base, which in turn makes the site more money. Am I gonna retire off it? Of course not. But for what I do, and the hard work I put into my site for the first seven years, I feel it’s a rewarding payoff now, lets put it that way.
