Going private

I've had a few issues with visitors to my site.
I have thought about going private for almost a year and today was the final straw.

--I had a few hits from something that looked strangely like a porno site, and when I clicked on the link-- it was. They linked a recipe of mine onto a dirty site and I am forever ruined!! Gross!--



I really want to keep in touch with friends (blog and otherwise)
If you would like an invite, you can e-mail me at:
littlechefcookingclasses@yahoo.com


I think I am going to make a brand new craft and recipe blog next month that will be public, but no family photos. More info soon! If you e-mail me, I will send you that info too when I have it!


I will get back to you by next week!
Happy Holidays!

Adrienne said...

Lindsay said...

What a bummer! You were the inspiration for starting my own kids cooking classes! I loved reading about the fun things you'd make but I'm sure you're going private for a very good reason! I'll miss little momma and company!

tinkerbelle56 said...

Why not move to a new site with a new, less innocuous name?
I think the title of your blog may have brought the pervs your way :(

Alicia said...

That is horrible that people are ruining it for you. I just found your site yesterday and had enjoyed it.

Erin S. said...

Gross! Sickos! I'll send you an email! Merry Christmas!

the duchess said...

I've gotchyer back, Em. Regulators, MOUNT UP!

Mecha said...

Well I am completly bummed, I just found your site yesterday through SITS and I was really enjoying it. I hope not to much damage was done. Good Luck

Miki said...

Elena called me this morning and told me. "WHAT!!!!!?" Is what I said...."What happened!!!" is what I said again with many exclaims of exasperation and pauses of disbelief.

YOU GO GIRL!! I know you don't want to go private, but this will teach those idiots a lesson. They can't spoil our fun, we'll just exclude them! They can go have their own nasty porno, grossness, disgusting, fun all by themselves. More power to them......go ahead you sickos!

We'll all happily follow your uplifting, inspiring, wholesome, clean, awesome blog, and keep it all to ourselves. I'm just so sad for the people that aren't going to be able to find you by happenstance anymore since you won't be public. So many people love you, and getting comments and "meeting" new people is half the fun!

Nonetheless, we "good people" are stomping the BAD PEOPLE OUT!! YES, I said it. They're bad. Did you read that bad people? You're bad. It's there in black and white for you...in case you missed it. IN case you still don't get it, a bad person is someone who intentionally tries to cause hurt or bad feelings to another who did nothing to deserve it, and these people are BAD.

We won't be deterred. If they don't like our squeaky clean fun, then they can be excluded, and we'll keep our squeaky clean fun to ourselves.

So sorry Emily that this happened to you...a few people really can ruin the fun for the whole bunch. I wish there were a "bloggy jail", and offenders could be put in it where they couldn't ruin things for all of us who try to make the place a good place to be.

Amy said...

I love you, hun, I am so sorry you have had problems. Of course I would LOVE an invitation, but understand if you want to limit it to real life friends. ((hugs)) and happy holidays!

Amy Fichtner said...

I saw your blog featured at SITS and I would love to still "follow" you. I also sent you an e-mail. SOrry about the problems you are haivng. I have a couple of "nasty" commenters latley and am thinking the same thing.

Vickie said...

Man, don't people have better things to do than invade innocent blogs! I found you yesterday thru SITS and enjoyed your blog. One person ruins it for the whole bunch.

Take care and Merry Christmas!

-Melissa- said...

It stinks that people have to ruin good things. Please add me to your list.

Have a wonderful Holiday season!!

4handfulls said...

I am so sorry! I have been following you for awhile now too. You seem so real and I love you ideas!

hayley said...

i've loved your site since i came across it a few months ago. your ideas are so great! so sad to see you go private, but i'd do the same thing. i sent you an email and hope to be added to your list. thanks. -hayley

windhula said...

Oh man! It's really unfortunate that this situation is forcing you "off the air". You bring so much inspiration to the world and I'm saddened that people like me who accidentally happened upon your site won't be uplifted by your daily posts. Your black background is so appropriate as this is a sad day for all your fans. I'm glad that you will be debuting a new craft and recipe site!

Brian and Staci said...

Oh Emily that is just sick! I'm so sorry you had this trouble. What is really a bummer for me (nothing compared to what you've gone through with your blog) is sitting down to get your Sky High Apple Pie recipe and then find out I can't :( Big ol' bummer :( So, good thing about the internet, just googled and AllRecipes always comes through! However, I'm sure it won't be as good as your's :) Anyway, it's a bummer that a few sickos have to ruin the fun of blogging for all of us who enjoy it so much :( I would love to be able to keep in touch! What will I do without your crafts and cooking and EVERYTHING!! My boys will surely be sad :( I hope you get everything ironed out. Good luck. I've sure enjoyed your blog!

Katie D said...

This is a TOTAL bummer!!! I've sent you an e-mail, but good for you for standing up to those people. It stinks a few pervs ruined it. BLAH!

Hautemama said...

NOOOOO!!!!

I read your blog almost daily. I love your creativity, and how you just seem to enjoy EVERY day.

Kristy said...

Congrats on being featured at SITS!
Have a Great Day SITSta!
Merry Christmas!

Jody said...

Hi! So sorry to hear about your troubles. My blog is private, too. I've never commented before, but have thoroughly enjoyed your blog and your creative ideas. :) Please add me to the list, if you don't mind.

ESROTU said...

DARN!! I wanted a pic of those "multi-colored" cookies you made! I was amazed how beautiful they were and tried to make them myself...TOTAL FAIL!! (as my son said)...haha...darn...oh well, I look forward to the new blog!

greedygrace said...

blessings to you

imjacobsmom said...

I just wanted to say that I enjoyed reading your blog every day. I am the Mom of a teenage boy so it is fun to relive that sweet youth with your two sons and your cute little family. I received a creepy comment not too long ago myself that gave me the willies....so I can understand where you are coming from. Thanks for a fun read! ~ Robyn

DixieJo said...

help me stay in touch with your darlingness!

WishTrish said...

Oh, Emily! That just makes me sick! I'm so sorry! This has been something that I've encountered twice in the last few months. We even had an FHE about it. Our policy: If a porn site opens at our house, the victim is to turn off the screen and tell Mom, immediately. Even if it's Shane. Sorry, Emily, I'm so sorry.

Your new blog look is very, Kobialky. :)

lemonologie said...

Sorry you are having trouble! Belated happy SITS day!

Julie said...

Melissa said...

Me too. me too. I set you an email, but I wanted you to know how much I would miss you. Hope you had a nice holiday.

Jodi said...

Usually I quietly read your blog without comment, but I thought I better chime in while I still can...
I totally agree that it's in your best interest to go private. I'll miss checking your blog and trying your recipes and projects on my little family.

Please post an address if you start a site for your crafts.

Ash said...

How tragic! Makes me sick that something like that happened to you........and by extension me. I've loved visiting your site (although I've been a bad commenter lately). I'm looking forward to this new one though! Exciting!

Tiffany said...

I've been gone a while but I am so disappointed to see that you are going private. I did see that you have a few other posts that I have not yet read so I'm hoping for more info. I love reading your blog.

Amy said...

Oh sick I can't believe that happened to you. I'm so sorry. I took the holidays off from blogging. I have been wondering if I should go private myself. I think this post convinced me to finally go private.

teachingtinytots said...

Katie said...

Hi! I'm glad I saw this before it was too late. I would love to be able to check out your blog- I know I am a stranger, but I am not strange, nor am I into porno. You are inspiring and I love all your creativeness, so I would love to continue to read and be inspired.
