Over the weekend I attended a family function, cookie swap. Well, one of my aunts mentioned to write it on hubpages. Well, funny thing is, I had never told her of hubpages and wondered how she knew, not that it was a big deal just that I didnt say anything. My aunt stated my mother told her. So, I asked my mother and she became all devensive and said no one of her other sisters had found it. Not a big deal at all. I knew the more I wrote her eventually they would probebly run across something. What ticked me off is my moms other sisters daughter found it while in college, maybe she was looking something up. Not knowing my mother knew of this she phones her and tells her about it and says lets not tell me about it and just follow along with what I write. Now I am MAD. I am a grown 34 year old, not some child and she thinks she has something over me to bad I told my mother and she has nothing over me and too bad it took a year and a half for her to find it. ha ha. Now I wanna write a hub on how immature she is but my boyfriend tells me not too... lol
I agree with your boyfriend.
People only mess with us when they feel jealous or infirior in some kind of way. Maybe she read your posts and wanted that talent for herself. But, being able to utilize the creative side is a gift.
Or, she is either one of those people who like to tear others down for no reason at all.
Either way, you should not let her bring you down to her level or below. Sometimes we want to so very bad, but when we do, more likely than not, We live to Regret it. Keep your heart Baby!
I think your boyfriend is right. you don't want to start family issues here at HP. we've seen that happen with others.
it's easy to find hubs if you have a facebook account and post your hubs there, or if your screen name is close to your real name.
no its not on facebook. Oh i dont care that they found them, not the least. It was the comment that was made.
Well yes but its ok they found me. Question me about it, ya know. dont go calling my mother like you have something over my head and making a joke about it. Ya know what I mean. My aunts are also too computer illerate to find something so easy.
It was her daughter who is in college who saw it.
Out of interest, why didn't you tell them you wrote on hubpages, (not a criticism, just curious)? Maybe they didn't tell you they knew because you didn't tell them you were writing here, therefore this implied you wanted it to be kept private and perhaps didn't want them to know! It could be this whole situation is simply a 'crossed wire' and that everyone involved read the situation wrongly.
Just my thoughts based on the info given, probably completely wrong, but then I don't know everyone involved to understand their personalities and opinions.
It may not be any comfort to you, but don't feel bad. I have a lot of years on you, and I still have a few people forgetting my age and treating me as if I'm ten. (Sometimes, too, friends and relatives just prefer to talk about people behind their back than to their face. The other thing relatives can be big for is calling people's mothers. I'm not defending it. I hate it and don't get it. Just saying it's how a lot of people are. On the other hand, I have the opposite problem too: I've told everyone I write on HubPages and most won't either won't look at my stuff or won't admit it! Everyone's "too busy to be on the Internet, reading stuff."
I'm with your boyfriend and others on here on it: It's probably better not to turn the family matter into a Hub. Writing about what a cookie swap is sounds like a good Hub, though. (Maybe it's me, but I've never heard of a cookie swap and don't know what it is. )

How to tell your parents you're dating a much older woman or man?When there's a HUGE age gap but it's time to introduce your new boyfriend or girlfriend to your parents. I think you should probably warn them beforehand? Any ideas about this topic?
