It's been awhile since I've done a random post and I'm always torn if I should even do them....Anyway wondering if anyone out there has experienced a "fake" blog? Almost a year ago, I started following a blog called Life Down the Rabbit Hole. It seemed okay, the lady was expecting her first baby and most of her posts centered around that and moving to a new house. Interesting enough, but I was curious to know more. Virtually no info on the author or pictures.
Then the inconsistencies began that got stranger and stranger. First, she said she was expecting a boy and a certain number of weeks along. Then several weeks later, claimed there was a mistake and she was expecting a girl and that her ultrasound showed she was 3 months behind. Now, ultrasounds aren't exact, but certainly not off by 3 months! No maternity or belly photos, except for a belly shot with no head or other body features showing. Next up, she said she was taking an international trip two weeks before she was due! Being pregnant 3 times before, I know they won't let you fly that close to your due date.
After she gets back she claims, she's getting contractions and writes a post about it. Later that week she blogs that the baby arrived (a girl), but she didn't do the math and wrote the baby's birthday as two days before she claimed to be having contractions? When she was confronted by confused readers, she removed the contraction post. She also changed her due date around so many times, that by her last recorded post she would have been somewhere around 28 weeks along. Her baby would have been severely premature, yet the photo of the baby she posted looked big and healthy.
By this point her readers were going crazy, confronting her about all these inconsistencies. What bothered me the most was that I think she was stealing photos of someone's baby! She never responded to any of the comments and stopped blogging. Then the blog was deleted! Not sure what happened or what was true or false? The only thing that made sense to me was that she maybe adopted a baby, hence why the gender and dates were all over the place? Anyone else experience a fake/crazy blog or a blog that stole content from the internet?
