****Jenna Woginrich**** is one of those people. Henry Rollins wrote a song about people like her.
Recent CAF post: Snowflake got some distressing news.Taking bets now for what you think this latest lie will be about.Snowflake you weren't too damn worried about winter prep when you were floating in the river everyday, training for a useless marathon, wasting days on trapping a hawk, etc.Do you really think anyone gives a shit that you are now worried about winter prep?Allow me to call a wahhhhhhhhmbulance for you Jenna.
I think she just got word from her prospective publisher that her new book is as bad as we all thought it was. I think the only way to fix the mess that she showed us is to throw it away.
That could be. A publisher wouldn't touch her with a ten foot pole at this point.
Last part of newest post asking what she can do besides dance and listen to good music. Um, no. First of all, GROW UP. Second, get an actual job that pays you on a regular basis. Thirdly, find good homes for your livestock that you cannot afford or provide a good home to. Fourthly, seek treatment for your mental illness because it is getting way out of hand. Start with those things Snowflake.
Her thirty day updating blog, about what's going on, is more like a 30 day begfest. Oh Ya it's winter again. How does she know this? It's cold outside and Merlin has a fine layer of frost on his back. Cool,eh? First beg is the wood, 2nd beg is the hay situation and 3rd beg- lemme guess. Gibson? Friday? Her truck? Maybe it's the sh*tter again, Ma W is on her way. Time to patch up the walls and scrape down the bird sh*t and fix those nasty broken pipes. Early August I went over to a friend's farm because she needed wood chopped up and stacked. She is in her 70's and needs help due to not safely being able to bend over. So I stacked her wood for her and made sure she has enough for at least the first 2 months of winter. In exchange I headed out into her woods and took trees that were down and chopped them up and loaded them up in my pickup. These pieces of wood will be left to dry at my place and help the both of us later this winter/early spring. I still have enough wood left from doing this last year to get me into December. As far as hay goes I bought early in the season when prices were lower ($2.00 a bale, now they are $5.00/square bale) and filled my barn. I have sheep, horses, pigs and goats that need that hay all winter. I bought straw too, though at the end of the season because it was very expensive this year ( I paid 1.75 a bale for this, others paid 3 x as much). I've always used straw for bedding. I paid for all of my hay and straw by selling goat soap all summer long at a local market. By local I mean I drove 40 miles to the market (80 mile round trip), and was there by 6:00 am every Saturday morning. I was also there until 4 pm most Saturday afternoons and drove back home and started chores. By the way I'm a 62 year old widow who has managed a farm 100% by herself for nearly 8 years. So I'm no spring chicken, but I'll tell you one thing I know. If you love what you're doing and you love your farm and animals you will do anything to keep things going well. You'll be prepared at all times for emergencies and you'll do everything in your power to give it your all. Some years I barely make enough to pay the property taxes, but I grow all my own food and barter here and there for other essentials. I also chop my own wood and stack my own hay in the barn. I don't rely on anyone to come do it for me. Ms. W needs to grow up. She's never been serious about CAF and it shows. What a shame after so many people, over so many years, basically supported everything she needed to run the place and offered tons of support for its success. And she played it all away and sits now and worries about wood and hay for winter prep. Seriously now?
Wow, you are an inspiration---and a reminder of just how lazy Jenna has been year after year. You should send this to her!!!
You really are an inspiration! Your post reminds me of the old Ant and the Grasshopper story.
I find her whole logos should cost money and all, insulting. I'm a graphic artist and whereas I do logos and graphics for friends occasionally for free or discounted, I don't have fire sales all the time begging for logo sales that I can't even start until 2017 but I want all the money up front. Her business acumen is so poor, it's damaging to other professionals. Even that article she posted talked about having a good portfolio, client references, a website for designs with clear cut rates and information. She throws up the same old crap over and over and what is very telling is that if you look at most of those companies, they are not using her "logos".And if she was SO busy, with decently priced work, she would have enough and not need to be begging. Especially for work that comes months later. I hardly doubt that she means New Year's Day... her "work" in 2017 will drag out for months, we all know this. Don't even get me started on that poor horse.
She is still tweeting at 11:39 PM. She just posted today that she was up until 9pm last night "working with a client" and then had a late start this morning because of it. Yet she is still awake going on midnight tweeting tonight. She is so completely full of shit. Her late start this morning was because she is a lazy sloth. How can others just blindly support her when its apparent that everything that comes out of her mouth is a lie?
"whenever I see funny women supporting other funny women I smile. Its like two wolves high fiving"She has lost her mind.
Yet she's far from funny, but considers herself a comedian. BTW: We've met her a few times in person, since we live locally, and she's a dumpy, almost middle-aged pretend hipster.
She looks like a middle aged divorcee who is trying to "find herself."
Even wearing cool kilts can't disguise her hipster despair.
Maybe the distressing news is that someone is finally suing her.
The Birchthorn backers got some distressing news too. They will not be getting what they paid for in the foreseeable future. What goes around comes around.
The infamous author has made another mistake. She wrote "Whose to say," instead of "Who's to say."
I really don't mind the grammar slips. I was an English major but sometimes when I'm typing I make errors as well. What bothers me is her arrogance, superiority and dishonesty.
I wrote the comment, and also agree with you. I'm a former English major, too. The reason that the "grammar slips" bother me, though, is because she touts herself as a "real writer." Jenna has been bragging about her language abilities for a long time. So she should hold higher standards for herself. Particularly, in public posting.
Her grammar mistakes completely bug the shit out of me. I am also an English major. I wonder how many people who comment on this blog are also English majors?I criticized her use of whose a few weeks ago. Shortly after, she posted on Twitter "who's whose, I write books."So eloquent ya moron.
I wrote the original comment, and appreciate you chiming in. I remember reading what you wrote a few weeks ago, and her stupid response irked me too. Even when she's caught making mistakes, her enormous ego refuses to admit it. So she blows smoke and acts asinine. She "writes books," but their content is crappy. I think that the intelligence of most folks who comment here is high, and that many of us were English majors.
Not an English major but I write for a living: grants, nonprofit marketing materials, and online content. Her grammar and spelling mistakes seem almost willful and definitely demonstrate her general laziness. That said, her real problems are lying, manipulating, cheating and neglect.
That sounds like a dream job to this English major.
It is most of the time. I had to do my time in many areas of nonprofit work for not much money to gain the experience to start creating a more independent and lucrative consulting gig.
She reminds me strongly of the tale of the Ant and the Grasshopper. She extolled all about her summer adventures riding and swimming. I do not homestead nor do I have a farm myself, but it seems like the kind of thing where if you have several large animals you need to start putting away for winter as soon as possible. Even if she could only afford so many bales during the summer, a little bit at a time would have benefited her greatly because she would have been able to afford more long term.Also I was under the impression that she had pastures to graze her animals on, or are they that overgrazed.
Yes! We have goats that really like first cutting hay, so all the hay for the next winter is put up in the barn by the end of May or beginning of June. I would never rely on getting hay later in the year because you don't know if it will be available at your usual sources due to weather or even your own health or injury. And yes, she really has no pasture. It is a trampled mess.
Also, we heat only with wood and have oil backup just in case. Wood is brought in log lengths as soon in spring as possible when the ground is dry enough, usually the end of April or May. We then cut, split and stack all the wood that we need for the next winter. All winter prep is done by The end of June. No worries come the wet ass hour!
Hopefully, the majority of her readers are finally seeing Jenna for what she really is. She completely blew it with the constant floating down the river posts this summer. She made it more than obvious that she was severely slacking in her care of the "farm."Now, right on schedule, she begins her ebegging campaign to help with winter costs. Even a blind man can see what a charlatan she is.
Are there any disgruntled Birchthorn backers here? If so, would you be willing to leave a comment on the Kickstarter page suggesting a class action lawsuit? Even if it doesn't happen, it might kick her rear into gear, or at least alert others about the scam.I sure wish now I had contributed at a low level. It would have been worth it to be able to leave comments on that site. Comments she cannot control.
A class action lawsuit would be great. She needs to be held accountable for once.
Just an FYI on this- right by where you can leave comments it says be respectful and considerate. There are so few people, maybe just a handful, that even look at that campaign anymore. There would be no reason to, because if she updates (which she doesn't) backers get an email with the update. Since there are no complainers except the 5 or 6 that asked for updates I'm sure none of the backers even visit to reference the perks and at what level.That said Ms. Snowflake would be able to get that comment removed in a nano second. I'm not sure what would happen to the backer, for future Kickstarter activity, for posting it.As far as class action lawsuit, if one is threatened then the person threatening better be serious about it. Once out there, should the creator of the campaign continue to fail to deliver, the one bringing the lawsuit had better be able to seriously move forward with it. Just saying.Here's a link about some of the pitfalls that happens and the real chances of winning a Kickstarter class action.https://www.reddit.com/r/kickstarter/comments/3pcpq8/kickstarter_failed_to_deliver_rewards_one_backer/
Sadly, there are many people willing to bail out that grasshopper again and again.
I wonder if the powers that be got wise to her re-posting the 'come in & sit down' post with 500+ responses. Maybe the bad news is that her advertisers are going to pull out (=no income) so that's why she's posting like a wild woman.Or she's just plain crazy. There's always that. lol
It would be long past due and so well-deserved if the scary wolves managed to creep close enough to finally take a little nip out of her behind.If she had only managed to - figuratively and literally - work on the fences instead of foolishly spending and playing all summer, like she hadn't a care in the world.
Her scams don't even require due diligence on her part. She can post sporadically about swimming in the river and her other non-farm activities that filled her summer days and many of her readers will still donate their money to her when she complains about not being ready for winter.It is perplexing. Do those donating just feel sorry for her in the way one might feel sorry for a disabled person or someone who is less fortunate than they are? Do they miss entirely the fact that these crises occur by her own hand?
If it was her first year doing this you could maybe cut her a break but its freaking October and you are just starting to stockpile hay and wood? What on earth is wrong with her she should know better by now. But then again why stress it all summer when you can be floating down the Battenkill counting clouds because you know that your faithful followers will come through yet again and come through with cash. She got away with a mild winter last year I dont think she will get that lucky again.
I don't understand why she doesn't just slap together the crap she has done and came back from the edit with a mild bit of editing and fixing and just release it and be done. Even if it's crap, her Amen Charlies will love it and she can say, oh, it's done, so sorry, I'm just not that good at fiction, but thanks everyone for helping me, yada yada yada. And then this would all be done. She never promised that it would be a GOOD book, just a book. Ya know?
At only 70 pages, she could have been done in a month just breezing through 3 pages a day. She just is so freaking lazy. And totally unprofessional. SMH...
Maybe in the writing world it's just like the movie world. You're only as good as your last book. If this one is pure awful, it would do nothing to help her secure future publishers. She has five memoirs and 1 attempt at fiction. I'm guessing her self-help book with Merlin as the main prop would be fiction too. She is probably thinking about changing over to fiction in the future, since she's so good at it, and would need this one to be met with some good reviews. Also remember- publishing costs $ and the money donated to her first goes to mortgage and second goes to fun. Birchthorn is way way down on the list of needs.
I was thinking the same thing, Anon 2:32. Why not just deliver what she's got, at least in e-book form? Wouldn't be the first time she's made a half-assed effort and called it good enough!Unless I'm mistaken, Birchthorn came back from the editor four months ago. I suspect she just can't polish that turd and has given up on it and hopes people will eventually follow her lead.
Anon 2:32. I was thinking the same thing too. I don't think she cares if it's any good. And I can't think of a reason why she just doesn't be done with it already. Unless she and her editor are bickering. Still, she is self publishing. She can do whatever she wants. But at this point is seems that what she wants is for all the backers to forget about it and go away.
Maybe she feels that if she releases an ebook people will start demanding the paper copies. But I doubt it. Most of her backers don't seem to care.
I think her lack of giving two shi*ts about Birchthorn, after she pushed withdraw on her PayPal account, has shown at least 244 people (her backers) just what kind of person she is.They aren't mad because they expected her to fail. Or they might have just for a second believed she was actually going to come through for them. All in all as the years ticked by most came to the same conclusion. They gave their money to an unmotivated tv junkie who loves to drink. Most have resigned themselves to the thought that the proceeds probably went to the mortgage payment, booze, new clothes, booze, books and vinyl, and booze and WOW, HULU , Reddit and Amazon Prime. Once she got the $15,675 she could take the rest of the year off and play. No winter prep worries she bought her cords of wood, bought truckloads of hay and settled back for a long winter of fun.Backers know and that's why they aren't saying anything. They were warned of this when the campaign was announced. They're terrified of a big public "I told you so." And none of them, or very few seem to want to publicly admit they supported such a lost cause. The good news is there is only a teeny tiny % of those 244 that will ever consider sending her so much as a dime in the future. So, there's that.
She touts that Merlin changed her life...so much that she wrote a book about it...yet admits on social media how she hasn't had time for him.I wish Merlin would escape with those sheep and never come back.
She also said she would sell him if she had to to keep her farm. Because getting a job is not an option, apparently.....just blows my mind.
She is trading pork and eggs for dry rounds of wood. What a waste! She could have harvested her own wood and kept the pork and eggs for herself. She is completely clueless.
She can't legally sell the pork. Great deal for the people who exchanged it for wood...not even split wood at that! It takes minutes to chainsaw a log that's small enough to split by hand.
She should have harvested her own wood and kept the pork and eggs to eat herself.But noooooooooo....
Why is she having hay delivered? That's almost certainly going to raise the cost. She has a full size truck. Loading 30 bales is not a problem, even by yourself. I would not be paying someone else for delivery from 3 miles down the road when I could get it on my own. Another CAF head scratcher.
Because she is lazy and has endless financial resources apparently.
Is anyone else kind of excited to see what her next turmoil is? Will it be wolves at the door? How about the electricity bring shut off? She has anxiety (you know free cocaine) about something!
Yes. Though there is a 99.9% chance that it is a lie. I do look forward to the details of the lie i.e. Storytime With Jenna.
I am placing my bet that she gets a late start tomorrow due to hurricane Matthew (that is no where near her).
Her anxiety -free cocaine comparison is something some SNL comedian said and some NY comic on twitter tweeted. You all do realize that JW sits on Twitter ALL DAY and hears these very off color, not funny, weird borderline rude creepy tweets and they inspire her to be even more bizarre and rude and creepy, but she thinks she is being cool. Because you know these SNL comedians are doing it, right? Humor has gone way off track. In the old days comedians like this were booed off the stage. For me comedians like Sandra Bernhard were just plain bitter. A truly boring comedian for me was Dane Cook. Nowadays it's like say anything, no filter, cynical, bitter, creepy and a bunch of things that don't make sense and aren't funny. As someone who suffers from serious anxiety I find the reference to cocaine to be ignorant. The jumpiness you get from cocaine is nothing like the restlessness you get from anxiety.
I'm sure said tongue in cheek and not meant to be offensive.We are here collectively to out Jenna and her scams. If we begin picking each other apart, it will defeat the purpose. What is offensive is subjective. I also suffer from anxiety and I was not offended by the cocaine reference at all.
I agree with what you said about being here to out her scams. I posted the post and the bulk of it was about where she gets her distasteful one-liners from. I have no problem whatsoever outing her scams seeing as I've been a part of not one but two. I've shared a lot of information/insight concerning how I was scammed on all 3 blogs.I wasn't picking you or anyone else apart on this thread. Not sure what part of my post made you think that? As far as offended by her comparison. I said nothing about being offended. I said it was ignorant. I have the right to that opinion. My post was in response to a post I do not see here anymore where the poster was confused about the weird confusing reference to cocaine regarding anxiety.Thank you for your insight on what you think she meant with her statement. I'm afraid I cannot say I know her well enough to know what she says tongue in cheek. I'm glad you weren't offended, but many of her readers may have been. Unless they come here and post about it we'll never know.
I thought the cocaine comment originated from anon 7:09. I didn't realize that it was something Jenna had said. I was referring to anon 7:09's comment as being tongue in cheek. I completely misunderstood and would never defend Jenna posting on her blog something like that. Briefly mentioned as a comment here, did not offend me.I apologize anon 11:48- total misunderstanding on my part.
Anon 8:17 - I think you hit the nail on the head with your statement, "They're terrified of a big public "I told you so."" I looked back at the first post on the original ColdAntlerSham blog. There was a Jennafan and Birchthorn backer named Angie Dellinger who was rigorously defending her. In fact there several other people who said if anyone lost money to Jenna Woginrich it was their own fault. Another fan named Natasha Nellie blamed the victims as well.It could be that these people are victims now themselves. They have defended Jenna, gave her their trust and money and are now eating crow.Or maybe they still believe in her, swallow any excuse she offers up and will wait patiently until the end of time for their copy of Birchthorn.
At this point Birchthorn could never live up to its hype. We've read her current writing and it totally sucks. She is currently publishing poison. Add writing to her list of opportunities that she has let slip away. She is earning a terrible reputation that publishers may have been willing to look past had her writing been up to par. Far from it. Her writing has become delusional.
Angie, Angie. When will those clouds all disappear? Where will that lead us from here?Are you waiting patiently for JW to make CAF great again?Did you pay for an illustrated hard cover of Birchthorn only to realize the most you’ll ever get is a 70 page pdf?What goes through your mind as you wait for the book while JFW is floating in the river, watching Netflix, playing WOW and trapping hawks? Were the shamsters right all along? Say it ain’t so, JFW!Come, sit down. Talk about it, shout about it, when you’ve got to choose. Any way you look at it you lose.Angie, Angie, you can’t say you’re satisfied. Angie, Angie, I think it’s time we say goodbye.
Ha, exactly! What's worse, the Kickstarter administrators were warned about JW's cheatin' ways when she first launched the Birchthorn project, but they not only ignored the warning, they made her book a staff pick. If I'd been a backer, especially one who made a large donation, I'd be ranting and raving, but most of them are so docile, they only continue to give weak "can't wait!" comments every time she makes a new excuse as to why the release date has been pushed back again.
How stupid they must feel now.
I was curious about Angie Dellinger. She spent quite a bit of time and energy defending Jenna on the original Coldantlersham site. I found her on the Kickstarter site as a Birchthorn backer. But she is not listed as a Facebook friend of Jenna's nor have I seen comments from her on Jenna's blog, although I admit, I rarely look at her blog.Is it possible Angie discovered the truth about Jenna and walked away, maybe too embarrassed to admit she had been had? Very curious.
I would say it's a good probability.
Snowflake just tweeted s link to a 2009 CAF post titled Why We Homestead.Sweetheart, you are the furthest thing from a homesteader. Living on 6 acres no more makes you a homesteader than sitting in a garage makes you a car.
So much of what she wrote about in that 2009 post (growing her own food-HA) is ancient history. I think she's aware that her current writing is crap, so she's trying to re-generate excitement about her writing by posting old stuff --SEVEN YEARS OLD. She's no better than a middle aged guy at the bar bragging about being captain of the high school football team. She is a shell of what she used to be, and for whatever reason would rather live in the past than work hard to re-invent herself.
I think this might have been one of the first posts that turned me off. It was the first time I read the "fall down the stairs" phrase."HOOOO! You should see this place. Man, it's so beautiful. I mean a Wednesday afternoon at 3:47 is fall-down-the-stairs stunning. "
I notice that was also back in the day when she got over 100 comments of gushing love.
Fall down the stairs stunning? Who says that besides special Snowflake?
The days of 100+ comments are long gone!
That was also from before Netflix etc. When she grew more than just a few rows of kale.
Before she went off of her psych meds and/or before her mental illness got much worse.
What homesteader buys their own wood? Don't they usually grow their own food and preserve it?
BTW, How can she watch Netflix while doing client work? You cannot do two things and concentrate 100% on both.
Jenna's idea of "working with a client" is doodling stick figures and discussing them with Gibson...
What do you guess is the chance she actually does read this blog and our reactions to her b.s? I can't decide if she has been able to achieve a screw you people detachment to her "haters" and stay away - or if her craving for attention of any sort is so enormous that she cannot(stay away) - like an obnoxious, acting-out kid.
She definitely reads it because she has responded via twitter to being called out on here for her hideous grammar.
Jenna is a collection of wasted opportunities.
Jenna Woginrich's comment copied from a Cold Antler Farm blog post 10/6:"Hey Morgan, the news wasn't financial it was personal and please only contribute to the farm if you feel it is compensation for writing. I am not asking for anything but work opportunities for logo, design, fiddle lessons etc. Which is not to say that kindness isn't appreciated - but this post wasn't about that."Well, well, well. What do you make of that? Could this be a result of her possible tax issues or maybe she's afraid of being reported for taking advantage of the elderly/mentally unstable?There is certainly a reason for her to be specific regarding payments and donations.Any guesses?
Time will tell
Common', she's probably waiting to find out if she has a dread case of halitosis and waiting for the test results... oh dear!
Or the second stage syphyllis?
I feel for these rubes driving hundreds of moles cross country for the CAF VIP special, but sucker hipsters gotta be hip.As they say:If you are new to the violin, you might be tempted to buy one of the low-priced violins advertised all over the Internet – by low-priced I mean anything under about $300.Don't do it.Having a cheap violin will make an already-difficult skill even more difficult to learn and will cause persistent frustration in your practice. Your violin will refuse to be in tune, the angle and placement of the strings will be off, the tone of the instrument will be squeaky and unappealing, and the tuners will likely bend and break.A violin-shaped objectThis year has seen a flood of cheap, factory-made violins from China, priced impossibly low. This low price point makes a $400 violin seem like a bad deal, but this is actually a reasonable price for a student violin made from good-quality wood with a fitted bridge, fitted pegs, etc.So there you go, she giving you a POS instrument to fulfill your ego and wallet, wanna buy a season pass too!!!
When I read that post, it was immediately clear to me that there was no "Amy." The story was completely made up, from how quickly she caught on to her running into town by herself for lunch. So bizarre.
Why no pics of this "Amy?" And more tellingly, why no post on the blog from her, "Thanks for the lesson and the great time, Jenna!" Something stinks in Denmark.
I agree. Much like she didn't buy any tomatoes or make sauce, now there is no Amy. Anyone who likes Jenna and who would be insane enough to drive for hours to see her, would totally want their pic on the CAF blog. Jenna has rounded the bend to crazytown. That girl is whack.
Sickening, smart-ass pic on Twitter..make me imagine wishing I could reach into the computer and give her a slap right on that smirk - but she's holding her captive so I'll stop dreaming of it.Why can the wildlife people come take a pet deer, found orphaned as an infant, right out of someone's home where it has lived for years - the only home it has known - and this a@S gets to snatch a healthy, uninjured bird as a captive pawn in her little pretentious, pretend role of huntress??? GRRR, she is infuriating. Now I may have to post a diatribe I wrote a few days ago and managed not to hit publish because it was crazy long and written in a fit of utter disgust. I'm quite as disgusted at this very moment.GTh Jenna Woginrich.
Yes! That smirk paired with her crazy eyes- I can't even!
Is it me or does that picture with her dark glasses and thick nose look like it's just missing a bushy mustash underneath? She kinda looks like a female Groucho Marx... Just saying...
It's not just you, I thought something similar. Unfortunately, she doesn't have his sense of humor.
Ok, need this off of my mind and out of my email, with apologies for length, as always, and surely still filled w/typos even though I've gone over, and over - but keep adding instead of fixing or editing properly. Feels like this is a shrink's office and I HAVE A PROBLEM....i'm not even going to Preview one more time..it's hopeless!She is quite simply an odious person who, as time goes by, elicits increasingly strong feelings of repugnance from me and many of you as well I'm sure. My impatience and disgust never subsides, only worsens week by week (Jenna's words and my intolerance both). It has been years of this make believe and grifting. Will CAF ever be just a bad dream, defunct and her crappy writing with it? I realize I am my own Jenna problem now, not she.I know I should just stay away if I'm so tortured - but I - and probably many of us - feel quite trapped in her universe, waiting for the denouement of this very bad story. It seems like her downfall may just be waiting in the wings, howling on the other side of the door this winter, but she's such a queen of getting away with shit. And since new fools fall into her river of b.s. all the time, haven't a clue, are seduced by her..? whatever and continue to fund her, she could hang on to her rundown sad animal gulag for years yet. We can only hope the end is nigh.Thank the free animals of the forest(who have escaped her non-existent hunting prowess and haven't been killed or caught and named after celebs or guitars) and all of you who have hosted these CAF-disgust venues - that this website exists; otherwise we would be alone in our condemnation of this woman.I've known of only one other person in my seventy years for whom I've felt quite such contempt, and that person is a public figure who could wreak serious havoc upon the world. It seems like my feelings toward that one are at least commensurate with its capacity to be hateful and cause harm.But I find it bizarre and stunning that I feel nearly as passionately negative feelings toward this inconsequential nobody by the name of Woginrich - pathetic, dishonest, advantage-taking, animal neglecting sap that she is - as I do toward the other creature taking up way too much of my emotional energy.Lordie, has she gotten under my skin. Bet she loves it, too, of course, brat that she is. I just want to shake her and compel her to answer for herself. Her endless excuses and deflections are sickening - and she continues to extol the wonders of her taste and accomplishments, which are close to zero (all the while really only displaying her lameness, dishonesty, and stupidity). I truly ~ cannot ~ stand ~ her.
I think that most of us here are disgusted by her but cannot look away.I have a neighbor, newest on our street but has lived there going on a few years. She could be Snowflake's twin. In looks and attitude. I am not exaggerating when I say she looks exactly like Jenna. She is also in her early 30's.I find myself feeling hatred for this person. When she first moved in, I would wave to her and she would totally ignore me. She acts the same way with all of her neighbors. So that doesn't help my feelings toward her but mainly it is because when I look at her I see Jenna. Other than that, I am a mostly sane individual. Jenna brings out those feelings.
Maybe she has poor eyesight...and you can't help how you look.Its hard being the newest girlfriend on the street.
She works at the local Target and I saw her there. She was in the restaurant (on break I'm guessing) and I said Hi and she looked at me like I was crazy. Then I said I live across the street from you and she kinda mmm and looked away. I think she just isn't a social person.Everyone on our street is friendly, laid back and totally inclusive with one another.
Yes you are CRAZY , get a Life
No, you're not crazy. I share your feelings for both of those individuals. I am also amazed that there are so many people who are so gullible that they fervently support those two individuals.
If your eyesight is that bad, you aren't driving legally. I agree that you can't help how you look.
The other "public person" sounds like Donald Trump. We live locally, and also loathe Jenna Woginrich. You're far from being alone, and many of the people who she thinks like her here, actually feel secret disdain. BTW: Not only is her farm filthy, but she reeks of bad body odor. we were once at a gathering during the winter, and I made the mistake of standing next to her. Frankly, I'd like to slap the smirk off her fat face.
I made a typo above, and being a former English major, need to correct my minor mistake. It's "We were once," not "we were once."
There's another woman who makes me feel the same disdain. It's Alice Wright, the odious owner of GOMI, a sleazy snark site. AW not only physically reminds me of JW, she has a similar smirk and self-entitled attitude too.
Anon 9:23: Jenna, is that you? Snowflake, you take the prize for CRAZY.
I thought anon 9:23 was jenna too.
She posts on here once in a while. This blog is candy for the likes of her.Let me sum things up for Jenna.We will be vigilant in outing you Jenna for the immoral criminal that you are. Your actions and the reporting of them on this blog is the reason your blog comments have dwindled to nothing. When someone Googles your name, this blog is in the search results. We are gaining on you Jenna.
Stalking people at Target that look like Jenna seems crazy to me . . did you ask for her autograph?
It was the person's neighbor. Maybe you should read the comment before acting like a bitch?Taken money from any senior citizens today, Jenna?
Your HATE will keep you going but no one cares
Run along now Jenna. You have pets to ignore and a nasty house to get back to.Say hi to the IRS for us.
Statcounter.com is free, runs in a blog's background, and tracks all visits and includes info such as: internet service provider, location, IP address, and details down to the type of browser used. Would be an easy way to out Jenna... Not an ad, I'm a happy customer on my own blog.
You can't set it up for someone else's blog can you?
No. The blog owner would have to create the account and then put the code in the source code of this blog.
Unfortunately, word of mouth is the only way to out Jenna. Though Jenna does a good job of turning people off from her site, too. Like those of us who see through her Polly Anna Homesteader b.s.
What a weird thing to travel to another state for one fiddle lesson. To each their own I guess.I love how Jenna claims she is in the middle of nowhere, yet posted that her student ran into town for lunch. She can't keep track of all the lies she tells.Geez for what she charges, it should include a lunch made with what she grows on the farm.Ha, that's right, there isn't anything.
There is no Amy. See anon 10:21 comment above.
Paul Molnar writes - No worries, Jenna. I'm really looking forward to reading Birchthorn, but I'd rather wait and read it when you feel like it's just so. I'm not planning on croaking any time soon.Thus spaketh the fool, thou mighest not plannest my son Paul, but I doth come for Thee when thou least expectest the Birchthorn....
Now you see why she was so hot to get that hawk. It's not rabbits she's hunting for-- it's attention and compliments. She posted this awful pic of herself with her unfortunate captive and then sat back while the flattery rolled in....and liked every comment like a complete tool. She responds to someone calling her amazing that it's "smoke n mirrors"...uhhhhh...she looks like a check out girl at Family Dollar who's determined to sleep her way to the top. Then, unbidden, she provides details on her wardrobe " deep discount rag & bone off ebay, Legendary Whitetails flannel, and the word love spelled out in viking weapons and shields. Yup, that's me." followed by "should i be embarrassed I paid more for that tank top than the jeans?". Oh, my, who gives a fuck? No, you should be embarrassed that you're trying to get cool points by mentioning the brand of your jeans. She's just SO THRILLED with herself!
This is what people are donating to. Someone who spends more on a tank top than a pair of jeans. Jenna, clearly spending high dollar for your clothing won't make you more attractive. You know if hat they say about a pig and lipstick..Loved the Family Dollar comment lmao!
She has the mentality of a child in middle school and it's reflected in everything she does.
She should be ashamed that it's her mooching for money that buys most of her purchases, including expensive tank tops and designer jeans.
Oh, Mama Woginrich. So passive-aggressive. "You look great. Jenna does, too." WTF?
What did she post that in reference to? I didn't see that one. Sorry Mama W but Jenna looks far from great. And most importantly, Jenna is ugly on the inside.
Aya Cash has tweeted about Jenna and the hawk. I'm sure Jenna feels like she's on the cusp of being accepted by Hollywood.
Oh, no. Aya don't fall for it. Jenna is a charlatan.
Jenna looks deranged in that photo.
I agree, something very unsettling about her in that photo especially.
She can't contain her crazy, and her empty eyes reflect it.
I thought there was supposed to be a blog post every day this month? Where was today's?
She has the weekend off! That doesn't count for 'every day' in Jenna Land!
That didn't last long!
She posted about the new fiddler Amy, who only exists in Snowflake's demented little mind.
I thought amy the invisible fiddler was Friday's post
She couldn't post yesterday but had time to re-tweet all day. More bullshit from the mouth of Jenna.
Aya Cash will look back on that tweet one day and think "that's the day I should have got the restraining order." Run while you can Aya.
So now there is a "trio of ladies" coming to learn soap making? Since when was that an option?
In other news, Tyrs Good Hand is down to 7 members (including Jenna).
One of the people who quit did the run with Jenna-seemed like they were friends beyond the group...wonder what happened there.
Damn I really want a patch and a smack of that hoochBut bowing down to priestess JW would be karmatic suicide
"I am remaining really optimistic about running into better luck soon. I'm due for some, for sure."Say what? This is from the woman who bamboozled people into supporting her with a postcard fundraiser (because who doesn't love a $30 postcard?), won a $2K contest--- looks to me like she had $5,500 worth of easy money come her way this summer.
So narcissistic. Jenna is nuts. She just tweeted that she is having a lazy Sunday. Um, everyday is a lazy day for Jenna Woginrich.
Shes so worried about winter prep that she is having a "lazy Sunday."Does she realize how crazy she sounds?
OMG. Her gall knoweth no limits. How could she possibly believe such crap, let alone post it for the world to see.After spending years being appalled and horrified by her sleazy antics, given the time frame of this piteous, fictional piece of thought-crap (summer of free, bamboozled $$), in many ways this insane utterance "I'm due for some, for sure" nearly takes the cake in terms of sheer nutso delusion.The woman is tortured by a lot of things we could list for miles, all having to do with her personality disorder characteristics interfering with her little fictional dream life - but lack of random unearned good fortune is NOT one of them!! Sheesh. She is a professional victim, scammer, and waahh, such an unlucky lady farmer, hanging on to her ramshackle fences with her widdle scrappy fingernails, SOS signals casually bleated out to the universe of fools. I'm almost starting to itch to write an unauthorized biography of her but 1)any editor I could scratch up would likely collapse from frustration and overwork by end of 1st 20 pages and 2)it's a bit early in this tale of woe(is me). Maybe give her another 15-20 years, see what she's able to figure out about herself, work, luck, the universe. Probably zilch, nil, nada, but there is always hope.
And as someone posted a while ago, luck = other's money to Jenna Woginrich. She thinks she's due some. I'm sure she does. What a scab.
Anon 9:39 yes please do a biography! What would the title be? Wouldn't it be great if it was sold right next to her other books on Amazon!
That would be awesome!
A Life of Luck. Remembrances of a Grifter. Scrappy Scamming on the Net, 101. Snowflake Special. Animal Hoarding and You. Kickstarting a Scam. Homestead Hovel. I could go on.....
One Woman Scam...
Or "One Woman Sham"
Yes! That's what I meant to type Sham vs Scam. Who wouldn't want to read that cautionary tale?
She's heavy on the retweets today. Heaven forbid she do any WINTER PREP or anything useful like that.By all means Poodles, donate to Jenna's "I'm a useless lazy ass" fund. Jenna shouldn't have to work because she is too good for that. We wouldn't want her to have to a damn thing besides sit around all day and look crazy as hell.I'm predicting a wolves at the door post very soon. She's been hinting at that for a few days now.Dig Deep, Poodles, Dig Deep!
Now she's live tweeting the debate as if anyone gives a flying f as to what she thinks of it.
Her and like twenty million other wanna be twitterstars... haha...
Because live tweeting is what celebrities do. I don't know how many followers you have to have, but you get paid for your tweets at some point. That's why the Kardashians are constantly showing their bare butts.
Fire sale! After posting about having a lazy Sunday, she has the nerve to post a "fire sale" on the worthless services that she offers.Keep in mind Poodles, what she really wants is donations. Working for your dollars is just boring fodder for our Snowflake. She's still tired after live tweeting the debate last night.
Is it just me that feels like watching the Jenna show is just as uncomfortable as watching the debate last night? Her endless social media commentary that no one cares about is painful to read. I truly believe she thinks she is so cool after years of hearing "you go girl" and how wonderful she is from her supporters.
Denise, YES, I'm with you all the way. She wants to be a twitter celeb but doesn't have anything to say or the wit to make it interesting. Her feed is mostly retweets but when she does her own tweets....oh, gosh...it's really bad. You just cringe and then start you start feeling bad for her which is just as unpleasant!
It's embarrassing to read. Jenna is the obnoxious girl who never got the hint that everyone thought she was a joke. So she didn't grow out of it and now is an obnoxious adult.
I frequently use the expression "cringe-worthy" when describing JW. I actually suffer secondhand embarrassment from reading her posts and tweets. What a pathetic poser.
I do too. It's like when you a horrible singer sings and thinks they are the next Sinatra. Total cringe!
I know this is dedicated to JW and her grifts, but I just had to share on this blustery October eve that a wood stove fire is just THE BEST on a night like this. Fall (and winter) are my favorite seasons. I HATE summer heat, and yay that fall and wood stoves are here!
The word "scrappy" needs to be banned from her vocabulary. Or at least replaced with "crappy"
Ugh. What utter buffoons. As the saying goes-- it's hard enough to get good 'uns from good 'uns. Why on earth would anyone want a puppy from two untested goofballs when puppies from proven working dogs are in abundance? There's no justification for breeding those dogs. On the plus side, she'll lose the respect of all the border collie folks that she decided were "her people" the last time she bothered to go to the Merck Forest Trial.HMG: She's so pretty. Are they both fixed? Any litters in the future?Jenna Woginrich: neither is altered, but no plans for puppies.HMG: if plans change I would definitely love one from that crossing!Jenna Woginrich: HMG good to know, so would I!
You just KNOW this is going to happen. And she'll charge $1k per puppy...and I'm sure some idiots will pay it.
"it is times like these in american politics that i am thrilled that as a farmer, most of the bullshit in my life comes from actual bulls"....because Jenna is now a beef farmer? What?
Did you see the meme she made for that statement? No? Read it, it doesn't make much sense, cuz, she's no farmer, no bulls and she didn't even capitalize American and the first sentence has a mistake in it. Shesh, some writer. SMH...
She has lost her BS-filled mind from which she spews BS- filled writing. I truly believe she is losing touch with reality.Does anyone get exactly why (beyond preferring to spend money on jeans, etc rather than animal care)she hasn't let Gibson knock up Friday to get puppies to sell for big bucks? Surely she has enough deluded, non-discriminating fans who would cough up the cash to have one - kinda like marrying into the amazing family in a way, one's own precious piece of CAF! Hard enough to comprehend that she's managed to keep them apart for days every month for almost 1.5 yrs...bigger question is WHY? It's MONEY for Pete's sake, and she needs LUCK! What could be luckier than her dogs mistakenly getting it on. Oops, these things happen...she tried! It makes no sense at all to me, unless.....Of course they've gotten together - how good is she in general making sure untoward things don't happen because of her care or efforts - and nothing has happened.
I predict fire puppy sale within the next year. One brainless Poodle has put the idea into her head that someone would actually want their puppies and possibly spend $ for one...Good Lord.Friday I hope you're ready for this because mama is bout to turn you out.
Beautiful fall day yesterday! You know what I did? Stacked wood! That's what a person who has a weekday job (just like snowflake apparently does) does on the weekend in fall to get ready for the winter! You don't get lazy fall days when you have winter to prep for. During lazy rainy days in fall I can.... That's about as lazy as I can get in the fall.
She can't claim "Fall prep!" one day and then the next day declare it a lazy day, without sounding like an absolute idiot.
Exactly! She might as well say:Look, I know I'm a lazy POS. I am relying on your donations to get me through this upcoming winter. I can't take care of myself. Maybe I could if I wanted to but that sounds like too much work. If you order logos or art you won't get it anyway. So just donate your money to me and save us all a bunch of back and forth run around. Gee thanks, Snowflake
Anon 11:28 - There is one error in your post. You said 'thanks'.
You are right! That souless hag would never say thanks! It's hard to pretend to even think like her.
So is Aya Cash in and Anna Kendrick out? Did JW finally give up on her desperate attempt to gain AK's attention?And what kind of jeans does Aya Cash wear? Look for those soon on JW's behind.
Long day, good day. Finally chilling out and watching Devil Wears Prada with Aya Cash.Holy Shit, she's got the bird watching the tellie!!!!Gibby is on Friday like Trump on a modelPS here is the cocktail of the day:The Logo1 oz. bourbon1 oz. whatever liquor you have1 oz. left over coffee
How does a dog's smile clean the "pallette" (sic)? It cleans the paint off the board???
Jenna's latest FB post:"Y'all think I'm about that Applejack but my favorite pony is 100% Twilight Sparkle."So it's come to this? Posts about My Pretty Pony? I'm hoping the reason for her mom visiting is to get her hospitalized/evaluated/5150!
I thought she was talking about alcohol until I read Twilight Sparkle. But then I was like, maybe she's still talking about alcohol? And silly me for assuming her favorite pony would be the one she never rides and leaves standing in a field all day...
I just read that the happiest and most successful people are those who can delay gratification. Unlike Grasshopper who has to have everything now.
Another fire sale? For her mortgage perhaps? That poor girl! No matter how many times she scrapes enough donations together to pay her mortgage, the pesky bank sends her another bill! Cruel, heartless bank. How long can this go on? Hit the Paypal button, please.
Why can't the bank get on board and just give the house and land to Snowflake? Until then, dig deep Poodles!
How is she an in the middle of nowhere homesteader, yet she doesn't have a washer/clothesline and goes into town to do her laundry?
Exactly. First "homesteader" I have ever read that goes to the laundromat to do laundry. Most I know personally avoid them like the plague and will even use old wringer washers before taking laundry out. She homesteads like she farms, NOT!
For the price of one of her pair of fancy jeans (or less) she could get an off-grid washer. There are several kinds and several under $100. Lacking that, use a clean toilet plunger in the bathtub. Voila! Clean clothes. Oh, wait... too much work.
We've used the local laundromat in Cambridge, before we bought a washer and dryer. It's a total dump, and perfect for Snowflake's expensive clothes. Unless, she goes to Greenwich to do her duds. She probably wants someone to buy her a set, so she's putting out feelers to those sycophantic fans.
Does she even know how desperate her constant sales sound? Everything is always being discounted by JW: lousy logos, faux fiddle lessons etc... Of course, it's all a facade. The regular prices are probably very high, so she lowers them to appear like you're getting a great deal.
Did you see on the door post that someone called her out on lying about the age of her house. Man snowflake just cant write anymore without spinning a yarn. That's why her writing isn't what it used to be. Unless you write from your heart with honesty and authenticity it shows. Shes too busy remembering all her lies to be a decent writer anymore. xxxxx Just curious, is the house 200 yrs old or was it built in the 1860s? We recently sold our old farm house and truly miss it. The house on the property was built in 1938 but the well house is original to the property and has been there since at least 1899. They don't build homes like that anymore!Like · Reply · 2 hrsJenna WoginrichJenna Woginrich yes, the 1860's is when it was built!Like · Reply · 1 · 1 hrJenna WoginrichJenna Woginrich well, who knows, that is the guess. I said 200 years old because that is what people say on the mountainLike · Reply · 1 · 46 mins
Someone posted the listing for her house on this site not too long ago. I don't think it was that old (1860's)
Here's the listing, so pretty close on the age, 145 yo:http://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/207-Colfax-Rd_Cambridge_NY_12816_M40116-67107
Here's a paragraph that caught my eye the other day:"I am worried about firewood, winter, keeping all things going strong. This is something I have managed mostly by scraping by over the past few years. I know that isn't how things will be forever, that I am sure of."What makes her so certain that things will change course? Do what you've always done, get what you've always got-- isn't that the old saw? It makes me wonder if she's so deluded she imagines a NYT best seller is in her future, or some kind of minor internet celebrity. In my estimation, her situation has only gotten worse. She's traded steady, full-time employment and security to rely on the benevolence and handouts of her pitying readers. Gone is the late model, reliable Subaru, in it's stead a fickle, aged, heap of scrap metal. What breaks falls by the wayside: lawn mowers, washers and dryers. To me, this is a steady march backwards. So, what's going to change, here?
she had a Subaru? Those things last forever! Or so I thought...? I can't imagine having an old heap of a pickup truck instead of a Subaru. Mind blown.
From 2011:"The Subaru is gone. Now it's just me and the pickup. I feel like my Rhino died and all I have left to travel through the world is a paint pony. Not that there's anything wrong with ponies, I just really felt safe on the back of that Rhino. But what's done is done. I sold the Subaru for a couple hundred bucks, and it will start the savings pot for a new truck. I know some of you are shaking your heads at all this, but trust me, that Rhino was dead. Transmission ruined, cat converter gone bad, a destroyed interior, busted fuses, no working wiper fluid tubes, electrical problems...I ride them hard. My lesson has been learned though. Take care of your car and it takes care of you. I ran that Subaru into the ground." Oh really? Lesson learned, huh? And what about the Ranger pickup that she had when the Subaru died? She ran that into the ground while "saving" for a 4 wheel drive pickup. SMH
The whole Subaru debacle was a real eye opener for me. She had this mega meltdown and was whipping her readers into a frenzy--- all because her car wouldn't start. Now, understand that she had a Ford Ranger at the same time so the urgency was being manufactured by her, not circumstance. She also had a co-worker that was totally amenable to giving her a lift to work. So why the hysteria? Because she had to set the stage for drama and lay the groundwork for getting her Dakota. Would love to know how much moolah she got pressing people's panic buttons that she was going to be stranded on her mountain, unable to get to work etc. So, she basically gives her Subaru away for a couple hundred bucks but the kicker is she writes a post a while later saying she saw someone else driving it. Then she needs another tow and the guy she sold it to tells her he made a lot of money on it.....because the Rhino wasn't actually dead. She was talking out of her ass. It needed repairs and she junked it. The same deal played out with the Dakota. She gets sick of things and wants something else and rationalizes her bad choices by claiming the vehicle is beyond repair. It's such a waste. She doesn't drive that much, so if she had taken better care of the Subaru she could still be driving it today. Now she has a truck that's pretty rough and probably won't last her more than a few years...good job.
Yeah, the vehicle thing was a huge eye opener to me as well. Here is a total airhead when it comes to vehicles. Like you said, the Subaru was suiting her fine, but it wasn't hipster farmer enough. She needed a truck, so so did no research and got that Ranger. Which, honestly, she could have dealt with. We have a F150 and a small farm and we buy our hay weekly, as she seems to do, with her "hay banks" (another word for expensive hay begged and borrowed from stupid friends) and could have easily loaded that Ranger with 10 bales a week on her "town" run. (Which is like not that far you know for her...) Instead, she doesn't like it, ditches it and got the Dakota, which should have suited her fine, but again, not cool enough, she wants an old rustic truck... of course, begging for a eloan and then getting a piece of shit... that thing has let her down so many times that she has admitted, I'm sure more that she hasn't. Just stupid and foolish. Didn't her dad teach her ANYTHING about cars? Nothing? I get the feeling that her family really didn't do anything much with hands on stuff and that she thinks since she is all farmer lass now, hands on, rough and tough, that she is really something so special. It's got to be some carry through from her childhood... a lack of basic wisdom and skills about so much. Just makes me nuts.
Some new level of bs or hallucination or sham shot? I count at least 11 animals. Can she actually own that many, and wtf for? Looks like her land, I suppose. Why is this so shocking, since the woman has a blog? There is never any coherent sense of what is going on there and who all the players actually are.I figured, if I ever thought about - that she had maybe 4 or 5 tops - not that I've been keeping track but she so rarely posts pics of her livestock I didn't have a this mental image, at all.Not surprisingly, given her fictional tendencies, I cynically imagined this pic was taken of someone else's sheep snapped on a ride with Merlin. But I'll be - I now think it's legit. Ridiculous, pointless, and expensive for what gain? but guess they're the CAF flock? Anyone else surprised? https://twitter.com/coldantlerfarm/status/785818307123220480
*sigh* I've been lurking pretty hard, occasionally peeking at her train wreck of a life by way of Twitter when comments here pique my interest enough to do so. I just shake my head at her. She's about a year younger than I am, and while it's generally unfair to compare one life to another, her public life makes me feel way more proud of my small accomplishments. I used to support her, when I saw so many of my own qualities in her initial attempts at homesteading. She was relatable. Then, as the lies started to unravel, she became painfully alien. Some of the shared traits were there, but it's like she takes them to a whole other level. I could never flat out con people out of their money, or never make good on a business deal. I keep watching, though, because it's like she's some far off possibility; if I had made one or two different choices in life, I could have ended up just like her. Lonely, pathetic, and grifting for my livelihood. I tried, once, to reach out and make a plea for her to stop. She used it as blog fodder. Now I'm just waiting for her train to crash. (Sorry this was rambly. Some days are easier than others to keep my thoughts in order.)
One thing Jenna Woginrich doesn't accept is ADVICE! Money yes ADVICE never!!!!
Apparently she is behind on her property taxes - latest bill is almost 2 weeks late. Which is surprising since it's less than the amount she won a couple months ago in the Beekman context.
Too bad she didn't combine them with her mortgage like most people opt to, unless that's not an option with FHA loans. Or, as usual, Jenna taking the short-sighted view on all finance issues; an additional around $200/mo probably seemed too scary at the time. Surely biannual MAGIC would happen (which, to your point, it has - of course). Just like everyone who goes for the cheapest per month health plan which also comes with a giant deductible - rather than having the wits to comprehend that the big picture, and least stress going forward, is best served by taking care of your obligations as you go. How easily the $$ spent on fun but surely not needed purchases(including dog #2) might have provided her with enough additional money every month to save a bit for dental/vet/repairs as well as her on-going tax debt.Of course her patrons (of the arts!) will pony up to relieve her latest burden - just like they provided the down-payment for the property she can't keep current on, either mortgage or taxes.
How can you know that? Being Late? Doesn't she have a mortgage? So that is paid out of her payment, right? Which means she is behind in her mortgage, again. Maybe very far? Because doesn't it collect taxes and pay them biannually? Please share! :-)
