Julia: She's a Creative Genius

It's always so funny when JA tries to pretend she's smart by using big words like "ineffable" and "indefatigable" and muses on something egghead-y she read or heard somewhere. Remember that whole "I want to make fuck-you money!" video in which it was clear she had about as much business acumen as her fluffy little dog or, you know, that Rambin dame?

Here she is again
trying to appear well-read, connected and intelligent, with the added bonus of justifying her suspected mental health issues:

  1. Well, scamming freebies and unearned, positive publicity does take a certain skill.

  2. Just because it's online, that doesn't make the diary of a 15-year old girl a "creative venture."

  3. Karp is on a panel discussing Tumblr. if Tumblr gets upwards of 750k uniques/month and the NS blogs generate from Tumblr, why is there a disconnect between the stats JA blathers on about and the stats Karp's reporting. Maybe I'm missing something? Not understanding something?

  4. Part of me believes that Julia Baugher is actually counting her old blog and NS compiled total hits. There is no way she's getting a monthly unique count like that.

  5. I'm sure Tumblr's stats are even more uck-fupped than NonSociety's. Every time you go to a Tumblr page, you get that little "follow/dashboard" thing in the upper right -- that thing is an iFrame meaning that every page you visit on Tumblr counts as two pageviews. No bueno.

  6. Anon 10:10,

    Simply put, she's cooking the books. I'll put out the following so if Google picks it up maybe future sponsors will catch it.

    NONSOCIETY PAGEVIEWS ARE COMPLETE FABRICATIONS OF JULIA ALLISON BAUGHER.

  7. Did you know that JAB can cure dandruff? At least the guy she was chatting with seems to think so:

    "make love to me and my flakeyness [sic] will disappear"

  8. The husband noticed this post and noted that "indefatigable" was used best to name a British battleship, from the turn of the 20th century no less: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Indefatigable_(1909)

    (also note that any other ships carrying the same name have since been sunk, sold or scrapped).

    Do with this what you will, bunnies!

  10. Oh, yes, a genius. See video posted at 11:21 and note:



    They cannot describe their "business" coherently. They cannot define their message or talk about their audience or what they offer that is worth visiting "6 times a day!"

    Julia is asked if she is a "lifestyle" blogger and she counters that she is really more of a "dating girl". For serious? Her blog is 10% dating (loosely at best) and 90% self absorption.

    They toss around the word "geek" as if it instantly qualifies them as such when it really only exposes them as being complete tech outsiders. I don't think either JA or MA could even qualify as fangirls. to be so, they'd have to KNOW something about their topic.

    Also, that Mr Roboto thing? I have never seen it, but, like all else they do, I am sure it was done merely to get attention in a crowded convention center.

    Watch the video.

    They have had this "business" running for how long now? 7-8 months?

    And...

    They. Cannot. Describe. It. At. All.

  11. You can see the panic in Meghan's eyes when asked about what she's actually doing there. Oh dear.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Wow.

    Meghan so obviously hasn't a clue what she's talking about. I really believe the only reasons she started her blog was to try and compete with Arrington or get close to him somehow. She knows nothing about her topic.

    The interviewer annoyed me. I can't stand interviewers like Lisa Rinna and Star Jone swho make the interview all about them.

  13. Meghan and Arrington were dating before NonSociety even started.

    He treated her like shit. No idea if they're still dating or not, but that was definitely his voice in the videos of her snowboarding.

    In the video above - the cloying, saccharine quality of Mary's voice reminds me of someone, an actress maybe? You compare to Oprah, Martha etc, who they have reasonably low, smooth, trained(?) speaking voices that are pleasant to listen to.

    I am curious as to how the finances of NS are setup - are the girls on salary?

    Nobody wants to see a bunch of somewhat smart women acting like airheads. This isn't fun. It's disgusting.

  16. New Julia post up about going to yoga class tonight.

    According to Julia, we are no longer bunnies, Bunnies!

    We are CUPCAKES.

  17. ok, srsly, the "valentine's" lipdub is the most pathetic, cringe inducing thing i have ever watched.

    ladies: you are grown women, and you are making fools of yourselves. i would be embarrassed to sell myself out like that.

  19. Re: ^Idiotic I Want Candy Lipdub.

    Note how Julia is always on the left of the screen. And second, there are regular people trying to shop in the store. How embarrassing!

  20. Seeing them in the bright t-shirts hurt my eyeballs. And then hearing them drone on like the little goats in my barn hurt my ears. I want to smack them with a sack of grain and make them read Tolstoy. What idiots. (Plus, the one with the hair extras has a large bottom.)

  21. Mary should not have been singing I Want Candy... More like I Want Deep Conditioner. The back of her hair was frightening.

  22. Mary hit the botox hard on her upper lip. I bet she couldn't smile if she wanted to.
