Well, that's out of left field.
Thought she didn't care/doesn't even read haters?
Ok we will send CASH
Jenna replied to this tweet 8/23 "if you’re over 25 and run your own business as a content creator and still talk about “haters” in your content--don't"Jenna replied "ouch...but right"Yet Jenna continues to obsess over people who are calling her out on her bullshit.
Yes she is! It just kills Jenna that she has no control over the comments and posts on this blog.As long as there is a Cold Antler, I will be spreading the word about Jenna's misdeeds. I'm not like Jenna. I actually follow through.
I posted that regarding the "haters" on here. It's an answer to folks who come here and don't like what we are saying.JW is too obtuse to think this is about her.
Hound Doggy, I was wondering about importing previous posts from the original coldantlersham site. I dunno, though, if it's technically possible on this platform. It would be nice to have a sense of continuity, but it's not necessary. I appreciate your efforts in running this blog. It's an important public service. If we can warn one person about JW, then our work is done.
I don't know how to do it....but I'll nose around and see what I can find out. I could certainly post a link or something.
I appreciate your prompt response, thanks. But I don't even see the other site anymore.
I don't see it either.
It's strange that it disappeared so quickly. Maybe someone could contact the New York farmer who ran it. I think that Meredith might know her. I don't recall her name now. She recently wrote that "the contents were safe," so the site should be intact.
I'm not sure why she didn't disable comments and leave the blog public. I can ask.
Haters ? Are they the Recreational Offended ? We don't worry about Them.
A year ago she was posting about upcoming events/workshops: Antlerstock, meat rabbits, wool, writer workshop, fiddle camp. Now just fiddle camp is offered. What gives?Maybe there was little to no interest so she dropped them.Has anyone here been to Antlerstock? That involved other people to facilitate workshops so I wonder what happened with those partnerships... Hmmm
Maybe she's been so busy tweeting, swimming, riding ponies, and running that she could not get her place cleaned up in time for any summer workshops. Also as mentioned by the local-to-her poster above, she may have burned all those bridges, too.
She makes to much money to have workshops.
I think someone posted somewhere that it might be an insurance issue. That one time before a workshop she had friends come and clean up or she couldn't get the insurance.
Oh, so maybe she will have her heathen clan come clean up as a "fall community service" project. Heh.
Here's to the BS: What kind of prey have you captured with your birds?Blogger Jenna Woginrich said...88, great question! Around here it is all about the cottontails and squirrels. Some people I'm neighbors with hunt with goshawks who go after pheasants and ducks. Some people have kestrels that want nothing but starlings. It depends on the bird!BS ALERT - note that she does not answer the question, the real answer was "I caught nothing because I really don't know anything about this bird crap" Blogger Renee M. said...Where is Anna Kendrick? (Your previous hawk -- I'm hoping I'm remembering her name correctly.) Blogger Jenna Woginrich said... Falconers don't keep their birds, Italics (my first bird) was released. Anna was lost last season in March. This new bird will be a whole new adventure.BS ALERT, the real answer "Anna died in her cage, probably starved or OD'ed on too much Braveheart, who cares, time for a new bird!"Blogger Elizabeth said...Oh no! What happened to sweet ANNA? Did she just fly away? I did't know they did that!Blogger Jenna Woginrich said...Falconer's birds fly away all the time.BS ALERT: Yes "they do fly away all the time" but real answer = "My bad, she died in captivity prior to flying away"Please send $$ to the JW law school scholarship, she knows what is is
Wow...I didn't want to believe that her last hawk died in captivity, but I really think this confirms it. I'm pretty sure that's something that, as an apprentice, she would be required to report. I wonder if she's on some sort of probation now, in the falconry community. I HOPE she is, for the sake of the next bird she traps. :( Also? I've never, ever seen someone engaged in a hunting sport so utterly unsuccessful at killing anything. Ever. Either she doesn't even try to shoot something because then she'd have to go to all the work of butchering/prepping the animal, or she has never even left her house all those mornings she claims to be out hunting.
A while ago I asked her if the hawk had ever caught anything. She responded with "Yes!". Then I asked what and I got no response. I don't remember if it was another comment or what but what it caught was mice.I have mini dachshunds and got them as pups so at the time I researched if Hawks and such can snatch a small dog. They can swoop down on something that size...the size of a rabbit.....but they can't carry it off...too heavy.So the idea that a red tail...and a young one especially....will fly off your hand and bring back a rabbit is just not possible.Could it bring down a rabbit?....probably.....but you would have to run over and get it.
She's been evasive about the details of Anna Kendrick since it happened-- the giveaway that something bad went down. I'm pretty sure you can FOIA this info if anyone is so inclined.
Why on earth would she report it? Remember, this is Jenna we're talking about. Because no one would be able to say for certain that it hadn't flown away if she claimed that's what happened. Quietly bury the evidence, tell her mentor that the bird flew away, end of problem. Cue next year's bird!
New York State Falconry LAW: §173.7 Disposition of raptors(a) A falconer who takes, acquires, transfers, rebands, or microchips a raptor; has a raptor stolen; permanently releases a raptor to the wild; loses a raptor to the wild and does not recover the bird within 30 days; or if a bird they possess dies; must enter the required information within ten (10) days in the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) electronic database at http://permits.fws.gov/186A or submit a paper federal form 3-186A to the department.
Re: comment anonymous 9/6 12:55pm regarding New York state law stating that Jenna Woginrich had to report what happened to her previous Hawks:^^^^^^****THIS******^^^^^^^^This is where this blog is making great strides. Giving her potential victims information about Jenna Woginrich's despicable behavior usually falls on deaf ears. However, pointing out when she breaks the law is undeniable intel.I am going to find out where we can email to report her for not reporting what happened to her previous Hawks. The proper authorities can investigate her.If she catches another hawk, I am going to go balls to the wall to make sure every inch of that "farm" is scrutinized and that every department in her county that can inspect the "farm" and her defenseless livestock does.Jenna, I am diligent and I follow through on my promises. If you capture another hawk to watch Netflix with, you had better make sure you have crossed every T and dotted every I. You will have less freedom than that poor animal, that I promise you.
Are the papers filed regarding lost/dead falcons considered public information? If so, could someone do a bit of digging to unearth the particulars on her two previous birds?
I don;t think we'll ever know the truth as JW aims for obtuse platitudes when asked a direct question. The DA needs to just say "Ms Woginrich, please answer the question!"
Jenna on Twitter:"Spent about 20 hours trapping and no luck so far. Still looking for my future roommate. Soon as I get her, you guys will hear about it!"20 hours? Sure, Jan.
Jenna Woginrich @coldantlerfarm Spent about 20 hours trapping and no luck so far. Still looking for my future roommate. Soon as I get her, you guys will hear about it!Hawk trapping started September 1. She's spent twenty hours in the last four days engaged in something entirely recreational. The fact that this same woman held a fundraiser to pay her mortgage a month ago (threat of foreclosure!) makes this all the more mind blowing. Her fans think they're helping a hard-working farmer stay afloat, the reality is more along the lines of funding the early retirement of an entitled hipster.
I like "funding the early retirement of an entitled hipster." Yup, that describes Jenna Woginrich.
I don't know why Jenna harps on and on about the haters. I mean, if it wasn't for all the haters, who would actually be interested in what the heck her heathen hobby du jour is? She NEEDS the haters, but they sure as heck don't need her. There's other train wreck channels to watch. But without them, she is nothing. I almost wonder in her sick and twisted world if that is the reason why she does this. That and, oh, the free money from begginger and crying poor me, the haters are out to get me.
It's All Lies from a Crazy Little Girl. Obviously no longer Homesteading. Just retired at 35 years old. Send Cash
Twenty. Hours. Chasing after a wild, free, useless to you, bird. Time's a wastin, hon.An expected doozy of a winter is sniffing about in the sloped "mountain" woods, soon to come creeping, then bounding toward the door of your (s)crappy "farm"house, alongside its friend, Wolf. No worries really, though, right? Time-wasting avocations and imminent icy-hearted creatures lurking are all grist for the mill for your actual professions: beggar; screen addict. Times and fans might be a-changing, though, eh? But probably not. Your most loyal fans remind me of another someone's admirers who give endless passes for outrageous, shameful behavior. So hey, have an autumn love-fest, enjoy your favorite season with no worries. Don't let being a grown-up with animals and property to care for get you down. Besides, you thrive on the mostly pretend angst and drama. The undercurrent of fear is the best part in a way, I bet. It not only works for you, it's in the very blood of the real person behind the props, wearing a fussy bonnet beneath your plain, simple brown one : Damsel in Distress.It is so obvious to all but you and your mysteriously non-comprehending fans. You are actually quite useless and helpless on your land and in your life - not only for a 'farmer' but for a 30-something who pretends and writes about it while being propped up by people who believe your b.s. about yourself. If you were honest about who you really are and how you really manage to stay on your property, and actually DO everything you actually are capable of doing to keep and care for your "dream" (instead of pretending that you do, making dishonest excuses, manipulating people, not fulfilling your obligations) I could feel a shred of sympathy.I actually know what it's like to not be capable in many ways, constitutionally, personality-wise, or from disability, to do what one must, go all out, work really hard, care for what you have, live authentically, and prosper in a life one would like, or would dearly, dearly LOVE, to have. Many or all of have problems and challenges and disappoint ourselves regularly with what we do not do - and with what we do that we might be ashamed of or is clearly not helpful to ourselves or our goals. Lord knows you aren't alone in being a mess of a person. Get some therapy, sell the animals except for the dogs, get ANY job or several REAL ones to pay for it all, work on your self and your life. Keep the animals and your fans out of it until you get it together.
I'm quietly applauding your comment. And I second what you wrote.
Best reading of the evening. Excellent points.
20 hours tracking a creature that does not add anything useful to her farm instead of spending the time getting ready is insanity.It could see it if she spent the summer slowly preparing, but we all know she never does anything ahead if she can wait until the last minute.I've always found it curious why she doesn't lay in needed winter supplies in the off season when the prices might be better, or buy extra every week. Why wait until you really need it but can't afford it? This is why she doesn't heat with oil, she can't afford to pay for it all at once. It really doesn't have much to do with her love of waking up in winter with ice icicles hanging off her nose.In 20 hours she could (maybe that's any normal person) get the farm ready for winter, but chooses not to.
I for one am glad she is out chasing dreams. It is fun to watch her Fail. Her rollercoaster life is of her choosing and very bad choices. As for the donations people are paying for the entertainment. Jenna talks of growing her own food and " living " off her land . For one person that should be very easy , but it is to difficult for her. The animals she has seem to all cost more money than they provide. Her dreams and personal life are no real interest to me . This bird adventure is just more Drama. Her blog posts are down and it seems no more workshops. Both are a positive thing. Yet she still has Fans ?
She's still trying to sell lousy logos, and also "hawk" her fiddle workshops. But I doubt if she's attracting a lot of business now. Winter will soon be here, before she knows it, and the wicked "wolves" will be at her barn door again.
In the comments section of her "trapping season" post, she is asked "what kind of prey" she has caught with her hawks. Her answer is about "around here" and "some people." She never answers the question. Then she's asked about what happened to Anna, and she answers "falconers birds fly away all the time." Another non answer. She could say that even if the truth was that she wrung the bird's neck.
Yes!!!! That was so obvious. A bunch of non answers.
Stacked hay two separate times in the last few days? What happened to being injured?
Hello!!!!!! Same thought here. She can't keep up with all the lies she has strung together.
Interesting.... that rooster that she drew, dancing, is that a picture of her own bird? Because look at this interesting picture on Instagram... from a coloring book. Weird, eh? https://www.instagram.com/p/BC01gIlPXWS/?tagged=chickencoloringbook
One wonders... did she swipe the picture or did the zen coloring book lady swipe it? Curious...
Well the instagram link is the instagram account of the artist of that picture who copyrighted it. That picture was put up on instagram 25 weeks ago. So going by that I would say the instagram account of the artist, with a drawing rendered by said artist copyrighted by said artist proves that if JW has something similar- this artist was her inspiration. And I would say this even if I hadn't taken the time to see artists signature in the bottom corner of dancing chicken was the same as the instagram account name. Why? Because nothing JW does is unique in that it's her own concept or an original thought or piece of work.
Having looked now at CAF she has a photo of a real life zen chicken on her blog posting 8/26. Chickens often do this zen like pose, so I don't think anyone is copying anyone. I don't follow on FB so not sure if she shared a photo there, but she did share one of her own chicken on CAF.
You know, for as easily as she can raise funds, I'm baffled as to why she wouldn't raise $ for a structure where she can store hay. She is wasting gas, time, and I'm assuming is paying more for a few bales at a time than if she bought in bulk.If she used her begging powers for good, she'd have one of the most beautiful and well equipt legit farms in the area.She's an odd one.
While it would seem like a great idea to have that hay building that would mean that she would need to come up with a load of cash once a year when its filled.The way she does it means that she can spread the costs out over months only needing to pay for a few bales at a time as she gets them.For sure it will save on costs to do the larger amounts but you need to be able to come up with the cash to do so
Has she ever asked, begged, solicited or bartered for help online or in real life to have a building built, a building fixed, someone to come assist her with fence building once and for all- good fencing equipment, roofing, siding, machinery, seed or assistance to regrow her pasture, logging assistance, a chainsaw or an ax? If it is for her animals, or their safety or just common sense stuff like chopping her own wood- forget about it.She cannot afford CAF. She cannot afford the mortgage for CAF. No matter what side jobs she claims to have she cannot afford the mortgage. It would be like any other person living in a home or apartment and they cannot afford the rent. What would they do? Well, if they were able bodied and not already working they would get a job. If they were not able bodied and able to work or find work they would move or sell or? Whatever JW's initial plan was almost immediately after buying CAF and getting into debt she decided to quit her job. Since that time she has needed strangers on the internet to pay her mortgage. But it doesn't stop there. She also wears nice clothing, drives the kind of truck she feels make her look authentic, has sheep dogs for her sheep, is able to reach personal goals on WOW and even be a beta tester for other games. She solicits advice for shows she can binge while "creating" logos because I guess Orange is the New Black inspires her to "create" better logos? She solicits advice on make-up, she asks for assistance$ to buy hay, she asks friends to stack it for her and she is able to play on the internet or in the Battenkill river to her hearts content. When she tires of that she rides her pony, is able to work towards a black belt (which she achieved) and hawk hunt. If her septic overflows she solicits cash, if her auto breaks down, because she doesn't maintain it, she solicits cash, and if she feels especially generous she takes the cash solicited and donates to other people's gofundme's all over the internet. She doesn't live like someone that has to beg for her mortgage payment, because her begging is ALL THE TIME meaning a steady stream of cash. And when that isn't enough she is campaigning for $ on Gofundme or Kickstarter. All to pay a mortgage she can't pay so that she can play some more. The very definition of irresponsibility. Soliciting for a hay barn and filling it with hay makes sense. It's just not something JW would ever do. I don't believe half the stories she posts about animals getting out. I truly think that she posts those stories routinely to keep the lie going that she cannot get a real life job because she cannot leave the farm. Also, it always looks good to keep the story going that Gibson is a sheep dog, trained to herd sheep. When in all actuality Gibson is an untrained sheep dog who is actually her pet/husband/roommate/soul mate/partner.
Everything went Off Track when she decided she wanted Merlin. She was just getting by writing and working. But getting the second pony was life changing. And Jenna was going to do whatever Jenna wanted .
No more advice. Just send CASH
An elderly gentleman donated money to Jenna for an outbuilding. He caught wind of her donating to someone else (with his money no doubt) shortly after and he was furious.She never added the outbuilding.Jenna Woginrich does not have any morals. Jenna Woginrich takes advantage of good people.(I like to state her full name so these comments and this blog will show up in Google search under her name).
On Facebook in the comments on the post about stepping on the nail....after more than 50 people tell her that it is okay and to just watch for infection....she says she went to a doctor.I call BS.She has no insurance and no money....doesn't make any sense.The public statement is probably to keep mama off her back.
There is no way she received medical attention. If she did you know she'd blog about it with a link to the doctor!
Correct. If she needs the bill paid she blogs it to death each post getting more and more personal and desperate. If it's made up (lie) she's evasive-for instance AK hawk and ankle. And if she really needs to tell a whopper of a story, she comments with really weird or utterly stupid comments like- sending a letter to herself and not caring that the handwriting matched her own and not knowing what the postal stamping meant (where it was sent from).
Someone posted on another thread on this blog that they saw Jenna in town this weekend. She was fine. No limp.Jenna is such a liar. She doesn't even feel a need to keep up her ruse for appearances. Which is because she thinks she is smarter than everyone else and that no one will question what she says.
The latest blog is about her helping a neighboring farmer put up hay. Throwing bales over their heads, etc. Does this sound like someone with an injured foot?????
Nope. Sounds like a loser who couldn't run a marathon if a pack of rabid dogs were chasing her.
Now she's posting old articles that she wrote years ago. I guess since she can't write worth shit now she's recycling the stuff that used to get her noticed. It's like a 40 year old posting his high school football stats.You know you're a has-been when you keep trying to re-live the glory days instead of trying to learn new things and try and become a better version of you. Sorry if this sounds bitchy, it's just annoying how she's half-assing everything.
I know. The constant re-posting of old stuff she can use to show off (gee, it's been a few weeks now since we've seen Mr. Mustard Rotary from Olden Times) is seriously annoying - along with her glaringly, obviously embarrassing penchant for continuously keeping whichever is her latest "pride and joy" pic/entry on the top of her Twitter.I just groan and swear at her transparently pathetic ploys for admiration. It's always something she personally loves (precious room corner) and that has gotten a decent no. of likes. Keep her shining star front and center to let it keep collecting those strokes for insecure folks.Get a clue, Jenna. These tics of yours are so not garnering you the cool lifestyle points you are desperate for. You make a sad fool of yourself. How do you not get this all on your own?
Yes the job application that she sent to herselfI'm looking forward to more homesteading stories like that, such an inspiration for the life I dream about!
It's county fair time around here and it just occurred to me that I don't remember JFW ever entering anything in a fair. Most farmers are proud to enter their prize animals, produce or handmade goods like handspun yarn, knitting projects, soap or baked goods.Of course we all know she is not a farmer. I wish she would stop calling herself that. It's an insult to real farmers.
So she's looking for Netflix suggestions so she can binge watch TV while she babysits her next hawk, all while working on graphic designs for clients.To those of you who work from home. Can you binge watch TV and concentrate on your work? I know I can't. When I work I give work my full attention. I cannot do a good job when my mind is elsewhere.
I wanted to puke when she said she needed something to watch with her next victim (hawk).To steal a beautiful animal's freedom and keep it prisoner in a house that looks like something out of the Silence of the Lambs- disgusting.(Silence of the Lambs would be a great title for a book about Jenna Woginrich's "farm.")
Absolutely not. I work from home, and don't like having any distractions at all. There has to be a separation of work and home for me to be efficient. Everything goes off - tv, radio, sometimes even blinds closed - until I'm done. Then & only then is it time to relax & do other things.
I really wish I could stop paying attention to her and then reading the awesome and hilarious comments but I am weak and I just cant do it. I know by paying attention to her I am giving her power and like she said if you follow everything she does and says you are a fan. But I like to think of us all not as fans but ANTI FANS. I try and look away I try not to watch but I just cant.
Like a car accident! Or in her case- a train wreck LOL!We are doing our due diligence and warning others about Jenna Woginrich. She gives us something to warn others about on a daily basis. Never ending!
After one slightly negative comment (but true) on jennas facebook page I got banned.
What did you say?
It was about buying a piece of crap truck that she still hasn't paid off and now has more money invested in repairing said truck. Then her "fans" started with the name calling ect. I managed to read her comment and her "fan's" comments before she blocked me. What a sad sad day.
How on earth does she get her graphic design jobs? Who makes up her buyer pool? What % of either faithful readers or people who simply stumble upon her social media are in need of her one-style-only, black and white logos for their enterprises? Unfathomable way to do business, creative or otherwise. As has been suggested before by several, surely she doesn't WANT to set up a legit business with normal ethical practices and taxes involved. Being accountable is a non-starter for her, always.Every time I read the word "client" from her I laugh. Right, Jenna, where did you find this new real (or imaginary) victim/sucker/worried about you fan? Surely not a serious, logo-NEEDING, new customer? Where DOES all her money come from to pay the mortgage - and water, electricity, wood ,feed and hay, gaming, internet!, clothing, vinyl, makeup, laundromat, groceries, gas, butchering, routine animal vet care, such as it is? Oh, almost forgot the monthly bar tab! Can you even imagine? She spends like she's got money to burn.Truly can't imagine how likely smallish donation sums, feel-sorry-for-you handouts, outright health-related (supposedly) desperate emergency moaning, and a few logo commissions from mystery peeps,scattered ad dollars, few and far between workshops, piddly book royalties - possibly come anywhere near meeting her monthly real expenses and constant play/image related, discretionary (luxury) spending?I DO NOT UNDERSTAND her setup. Even accounting for the larger scammed pennies-from-heaven (unearned prize money, bogus "loans", go fund me type gifts)her presumed accounts receivable/payable ratios do not add up.What am I missing beyond the fact that her animals are likely very poorly cared for and CAF is an unmaintained mess? Almost seems like there must be another 500/mo source her readers aren't privy to. Perhaps she really has a secret patron who sends a hefty monthly amount just for her to be her snowflaky, spendthrift self. Not likely, just truly don't get how she is able to spend SO much on non-essentials.
I'm really wondering the same thing about her finances. The income just does not in any way equal, or even come close to, the outgo. She must have some other (unknown to us) source of hefty monthly income. There is just no way all her expenses are being paid by random donations, logo sales, or even the larger occasional windfalls. I figure her expenses per month are around $2,000. About $1,200 for the mortgage, $200 feed costs, then there's all the luxury items like online gaming accounts, Internet, Netflix, booze, and on and on. What gives? Maybe she's getting her inheritance early.
Oh, and I left out food, property taxes, the Kiva loan payment, utility bill, insurance. It just doesn't add up at all.
I think I can answer that question regarding her mystery income: it's from the advertisers that appear on the right hand side of her blog. A typical formula for ad rates for a blog: for every 500 views - $50 per month per ad. So if she's getting a 1,00 views per day (which she used to do, not so sure about current numbers), she's charging each advertiser $100 per month. Her actual price may be somewhat higher or lower, but the ads would provide a base income.
Ah.... No wonder she puts up that "Come In Sit Down" post so often! There are over 500 views on that one alone. So if she posts that once a month she automatically gets the 500 views. Tricky, Jenna.
Okay, I think I'm confusing page views with blog posts. Probably not the same thing? Anyway... She is probably getting a bit from ads. She's got so many on there.
Another question. Can only the owner of the blog see the number of page views? I do not have a blog, so I don't know.
I had no idea whatsoever! I imagined that she got paid by the advertisers perhaps .05 every time someone actually clicked on their ad. But are you saying that each advertiser pays her $100 per month just to sit on her blog (assuming she gets x# of just views each month)? I am blown away, have been utterly clueless. If anything could keep me off her blog, this big of news-to-me surely will. Sounds like easily more than 500, maybe even 1000. Well I'll be..horrified, actually, lol! I likely completely misread what you wrote. I was definitely confused among info on blog traffic, what they pay her for a particular amount, and what she charges them to display on her blog.Whatever the details, sounds like it's a substantial windfall of yet more unearned income - beyond being a wildly annoying creature and writing - crowing about! her life of Riley, shamelessly.
Yes, you're correct, each advertiser is probably paying $50-$100 per month to sit on her blog. Some may have different deals (the Vermont Bun Burner people GAVE her a stove in exchange for their ad). I imagine that the money is in the neighborhood of $2,500 per month from that source. Add in the money that she gets for selling logos/artwork and donations and you can see how she keeps it all rolling.
Rolling...possibly. Ahead...no way. She will never get ahead until she scales down the outgoing money.
Is it just me that can't see it, or is the bun baker ad gone?
You're right, anon. 6:48, the Bun Baker ad is gone. Maybe they reviewed the blog and took it down, or maybe there was a contract for a certain amount of time. Who knows?
Wow. I never noticed that much or counted, but there are no less than 27 ad banners on her blog site. Even if each of them pays a paltry, say, $20 a month that's more than $500 a month for her. I'm sure some pay more. I'm getting that is her base income, plus all the other odds and ends, gofundme, etc. that comes in. She's probably paying the mortgage with the ads. Begging for the rest.
Her money comes from "donations" and scams. I wouldn't put it past her to have an entirely separate grift which she does not mention publicly because she can't take a chance on being called out and losing the income. Maybe she has nasty sugar daddys who supplement her income, who knows. Maybe she scams little old ladies? Maybe she takes a side job working from home just long enough to get unemployment.There's no telling. But whatever it is, we all know she does not work for it.
I also find her advertisers annoying, and never click on their links. I hope that they eventually dump her fat ass, too.
A gander through Google shows there are formulas for companies to figure out how much they they have to pay per click, and conversely, for websites to determine how much to charge a company to advertise. Sounds like you can charge either way. I count 32 advertisers on her blog. If she charges $50 per advertiser upfront, that's $1600 per month. According to what I read, advertisers will also look at average comments per month, not just clicks, which explains why "Come In Sit Down" keeps showing up.
If they are looking at the comments surely they can't be blind to the fact that most of them are years old, with very few in this year or last.
Probably a robo-program "looks" at the comments - just tallies up the number - no real human eyes.
I have to say, I run several blogs and something small like hers, I'm sure she has negotiated some sort of deal with each and everyone. Some I think she's gotta a product or service from. Others are probably either a one time fee for awhile, month, year, etc., but I don't think she's as sophisticated to keep track of all the page views and charge them, etc. Maybe. Still, Yeah, it's income and probably a good deal of her bread and butter money. I think she probably exists like a lot of small business owners operate. We have several home business, a small farm, royalties and a little advertising coming in. Which means we always have a little money coming in, almost daily. $20-$50 a day... It handles the easy stuff, a bag or two of feed, 10 bales of hay, WOW subscription, new toys... etc. But it is hard to do big things like a mortgage, because you have to let that trickle build up. I suspect that is what she is doing. Just my thoughts.
She's no Pioneer Woman (who earns in the millions annually from her blog).She has also has an attractive website. Snowflake isn't even in the same solar system.
If she's re-posting the "Come in sit down" in order to skew the numbers & keep her advertising $$ rolling in, guess what? It's yet another SCAM she's running. When will this end?
Hi allI have opened the original coldantlersham site. I will not be adding anymore posts, but you can visit for archival purposes.
Thanks for doing that Julie. I'll probably post a link here somewhere so if people want more info on JW they can hop over to the old blog.
Thanks, Julie. I was the one who requested it. I appreciate it. And Hound Doggy, too, for hosting this site.
Re: Comment 9/6 12:55 pm regarding New York state law staying she had to,by law, report what happened to her previous Hawks:^^^^^^****THIS******^^^^^^^^This is where this blog is making great strides. Giving her potential victims information about Jenna Woginrich's despicable behavior usually falls on deaf ears. However, pointing out when she breaks the law is undeniable intel.I am going to find out where we can email to report her for not reporting what happened to her previous Hawks. The proper authorities can investigate her.If she catches another hawk, I am going to go balls to the wall to make sure every inch of that "farm" is scrutinized and that every department in her county that can inspect the "farm" and her defenseless livestock does.Jenna, I am diligent and I follow through on my promises. If you capture another hawk to watch Netflix with, you had better make sure you have crossed every T and dotted every I. You will have less freedom than that poor animal, that I promise you.
Good for you. I'm happy to hear that she's finally being held accountable for her actions.
I'm the one that posted the NY State falconry laws. That info came from the New York State Falconry Association website. Here is the home page to that website with contact information. http://www.nysfa.org/
Someone commented that if you use her full name, Jenna Woginrich, this site will come up on a Google search. Is there any other way to get it to come up? I will use her full name from now on. That and Cold Antler Farm.
I think that is the only way.
You can also type in words like: "irresponsible" and "scammer." Unfortunately, for her, those frequently appear alongside Jenna Woginrich.
Google cold antler sham
Apparently hawking is so exhausting JW will have to lay off a few days to recover. Maybe even get some winter preps done and stack fire wood.Life on CAF is soooo demanding I don't know how she does it��
Has anyone directly rod jenna about this site? It seems someone should let her know that you all are on to her.
Yup, I wrote a comment on her site a few weeks ago. And I also gave her the link. Unsurprisingly, she never posted it. I'm sure that she reads here. Who wouldn't want to know what's being said about them? Especially, a narcissist like her.
(redhorse) We posted our comments a minute apart. I'd call that perfect timing.
Definitely knows. I pointed out her misuse of whose in one of her tweets and within an hour she tweeted "who's, whose? I write books."So eloquent, ya moron.
Know I'm a broken chicken tractor butWhere the hell is Birchthorn Jenna?
so she bought the house for $158K in april of 2010 and the zillow estimate is about $105K and its probably less than that in the condition it is in. I warned her years ago when she busted the baseboard heating that she was hurting the value of her house and it would end up burning her in the end but did snowflake listen? Of course not because hers is a special snowflake world where things like foreclosure or wait for it realizing you cant afford what you have and sell just dont happen. And why should they when people keep bailing you out again again again again for how long oh wait 6 years yep 6 years. I think she over paid for that house big time and she had a usda mortgage which means she didnt put a lot down. And how can you refinance to get the payment lower when you have paid down very little of the interest on the loan and have little equity to cash out and of course you probably hide most of your income from the irs.
She probably wouldn't qualify for a refi because her income is so eradic and sh has too many late payments.
She doesn't claim "donations" on her income taxes. If someone looked over her financials it would look as though she lives off of $5,000 or so a year.
Everything donated thru her donate button gets Taxed
No, it doesn't. $20,000 and under does not get taxed and Jenna has more than one PayPal account. When one approaches $20,000, she uses a different one.
I work from home and one of my contracts uses PayPal to pay me. It's true about the $20,000 limit on PayPal, however, that just triggers a 1099 from PayPal. It does NOT mean the income isn't taxable, just that PayPal doesn't have to bother keeping track of it. You are supposed to. Thus, when I do my taxes, I report the PayPal income under Misc Income without a 1099, but with the employer/contract's Federal tax ID. Since she doesn't have any tax ID for these donations (obviously) then it should just go under Misc Income on the 1040.
Hope is exhausting? (Title of her new post)Working to support yourself is actually more exhausting.You should try it sometime, Jenna.
Hope floats ;)
I'm fairly certain I'm going to use her book that I purchased to heat my home this winter and send her a picture of it going up in flames along with my nice stack of wood in the basement. I will probably get hives from burning a book ( gives me goose bumps just thinking about it) but I seriously can't believe that I once had enough faith in her to actually purchase a book of hers. Thankfully it was only the one and I got the rest from the library.
Please post the pic if you can. Maybe Hound Doggy will let you, and it would give us all a laugh.
Great idea! Normally, I would never destroy a book or even alter one. I have a huge collection of books, many of them antique.However, I will make an exception for any of Jenna Woginrich's books. They would make great stove fire starters. We should all post pictures and tweet them under a common hashtag.#ColdAntlerSham
Double hashtag. #coldantlerfarm #coldantlershamtoo
I was just thinking about Birchthorn and all of its backers. She must have friends & family who have given their money towards this project. It takes a special kind of jerk to rip off people you know.
Yup, her own mother is a backer. And look at this comment from Jenna's #1 Super Fan:"Just in time for summer reading! Can't wait!!"Oops! Jenna didn't realize you meant this summer. Maybe next year!...maybe.
Jenna Woginrich @coldantlerfarm I'm spending hours a day looking for a new hawk. No luck yet trapping. Frustrating, exciting, hopeful. #falconryLast week she was warbling about $1000 in repair bills on her truck. This week she has the luxury of spending "hours a day" looking for a hawk she has four months to trap. I've never seen someone claim to be in such fiscal distress spend so much time on leisure activities and hobbies. The saddest part about this, after the fact that an innocent wild animal is being subject to her dubious animal care practices, is that the whole falconry deal is just so she can't get attention.
Everything Jenna Woginrich does is for ATTENTION!
Laughing so hard - the photo she posted on twitter is of her hawk flying AWAY from her! hahahaha
I believe that's a pic taken on the drama, angst, and pride-filled day she released Italics, captured by the weirdly smitten M. Romais, Scrappy Homestead Visuals Whisperer - probably the most useful creature JW has ever captured, lol. What a catch - an undeserved match made in fantasy land. Maybe she's on the payroll, such as it is. She ought to be, but likely she does what she does for the pure lurrve of dat hip and compelling jenster.
For those of you all that are curious about if the falconry records are public record, you could go to http://www.dec.ny.gov/public/373.html and see if they will respond to a FOIL request.
I could reword the main post saying a couple ways. "Don't worry about the scammers... They are just angry because the truth you speak contradicts the lie you live." OR "Don't worry about the haters... They are just angry because the lie you speak contradicts the truth they live."
the lie THEY live!
