We Cared About a Version of Someone You Weren’t

Putting together the LFCA tonight, I was struck by just how many people submitted news for the fake loss blogger.  Not in the sense of how many people were taken in by this person’s story and jerked around, but how many compassionate people there are in the blogosphere that they would see someone else’s pain and do a small good thing to try to help that person feel less alone.  I know a lot of people are still reeling from the lies, but I wanted to point this fact out because this is the side of the blogosphere I love.

I suppose this is why she did it, because we cared about a version of her that she wasn’t. Perhaps it’s not so hard to understand why she did it after all.

I also love how many bloggers said that even though this proved to be a hoax, they would not withhold their support and affection in the future because of the fear of something similar repeating. This melts my heart, honestly.

Happy blogoversary, Mel! We love you and your blog. Thank you for sharing so much of yourself with us. Your posts give me a lot to think about and often they offer views on things and situations that have never crossed my mind – which is eye and mind opening. So, now that we’re here, when does the party start? :-)

Happy Blogoversary!

And that reason right there, and the LFCA in general, are what opened my eyes to the wonderful feelings of love and inclusion in this community.
