I searched and could not find a thread for her…

Another GOMIer posted a link to StatsCrop which gives the stats for blogs. According to them, Rhee makes over $900K a year from her blog… over $300 a day to take some pics of her horses and dog. WOW

whoa, that's an interesting website! and gomi makes more per day off ads than ree! awesome. and i think it means her blog is worth 900k, cause 300 x 365 is just like, 6 figures. but yea, how is there not a snarkfest on pioneer woman on here? i don't read her blog cause i'm not really into cooking, but i read her book, and while it was entertaining, i thought if she mentioned her husband's muscular arms or described him as "masculine" one more time, my eyes would get stuck permanently in the top of my head

I'm surprised at the lack of PW snark as well. I believe in the past I have stumbled across several websites devoted to PW snark (too fat and lazy to look them up), and as far as I could remember the main points against her were:

- she misrepresents herself as part of a struggling farming family when in fact her husband was born into big big money and they own a crapton of land and are worth millions

- she steals recipes from old and out of print charity cookbooks and claims them as her own

I admit I got sucked into her website a few years ago and promptly forgot about it. I really enjoyed the ranching stories!

She doesn't bother me as much as some of the others because she's been blogging since long before there were dollar signs in everyone's eyes. She actually seems like she has decent business sense, too – you don't see her grabbing free shit from every sponsor, she was always pretty selective and paid for her own giveaways, etc.

Um…no. No, GOMI does not. I explained in the other thread, that site is incredibly inaccurate. If I made that kind of money I'd have 9 bathrooms and wouldn't have to have a job to pay my bills. GOMI makes maybe 800 a month, and the servers are about 600 a month. I'm not sure where these site worth websites get their stats, but every one I've checked has always informed me that I make hundreds of thousands per year from GOMI. I'd really like to know where that revenue is, because I've never seen it.

I think the PW snark blogs can be obsessive and over-the-top sometimes, but these guest posts are some of the best pieces of writing I've ever encountered on a snark blog:

That's pretty much why I don't even bother to post about her. Half a dozen other places have already gone into how she's really rich, has a staff of 9 brillion people, blah blah blah. What's left to say?

Also JFC I couldn't make it through those posts. I don't think some attempt at snarking on shitty recipes requires a 10,000 word novel. But maybe you need to really be into PW to get the joke.

Her recipes are pretty disgusting and use so many processed, canned, high sodium "shortcuts".  She's also not honest about the wild horses that they so generously take care of – the government pays them $$$$$ (like in the million dollar range) to take care of those horses.

 

Although I did make her chocolate sheet cake and it was seriously UHMAZING.

She's posted that they are paid to take care of them. It must be an amazing site to see those wild horses actually out in the wild. Pretty soon they will just be another extinct creature.

Wild horses aren't endangered, and they're not even native to the US. Whatever.
