Do any of you read Patty from My No Guilt Life?  I found her a while back when I was considering doing the Disney World Marathon and I was looking for blogs about it.  I go back and forth with her.  She seems to be in the same circuit as Heather's Looking Glass and Pam from We Run Disney.  They always seem to have the same sponsored posts at the same time.  She's one of those part-time runners who is only interested in running Disney races, so I hesitate to put her in the Running Blogger category, but Sassy is here and we know about her, so…

I tend to shake my head at Patty pretty often.  She seems like those mommy bloggers who do nothing but spend the money their husbands bring home.  Patty's husband must make some bank because she's always doing the Disney challenges, which are pricey, and traveling for them.  The thing that prompted me to bring her up here was that she recently spent a weekend at a resort in Arizona with her family.  She mentioned that it cost $2500 and that she was upset because her $300 cabana rental resulted in a different cabana than she was promised.  She went on about it on different social media as it was happening and wrote a blog post about going through different levels of management with her complaint.  Finally, they ended up comping her a free stay in the future.

Sometimes bloggers with First World Problems just kill me.  You'd think it was the end of the world when they have these minor issues.  Maybe we need a First World Blogger category on GOMI.

I have been waiting for her to show up here but apparently people don't pick up on the same things that I do because it's taken an awfully long time. Thank you for this satisfaction.

The thing about the cabana was crazy. It drives me nuts when people use social media to get free stuff and it's her M.O. I am surprised they didn't look back on her Tweets to see how many times she has begged/complained just for comps. 

No shame =  free stuff.

I'm in a running group with her and she posted her blog up the other day. I found the Arizona thing to be ridiculous as well.

I wondered why I'd never seen her here. Then it took a while for anyone to respond to my post, so I thought either nobody on GOMI knows the blog, or she's like Sassy and has a band of followers who think she's just wonderful.

I used to think she was really honest and real because she shared about losing a child at a young age and the difficulties around that.  Then she started to do all these sponsored posts and basically repost everything Disney posted on their social media outlets.

Maybe it's the Disney bloggers that are in this over privileged "look what I'm spending money on" group that bug me.  The screaming on social media about perceived bad customer service is just ridiculous.  The world doesn't revolve around which cabana you get at a luxury resort.  Move along and be happy you can spend all that money on things you don't really need.

Maybe she is in the Sassy camp. Like attracts like and they can run off into their happy Disney sunset with blinders on. (There is a small pool of the same commenters it seems.) But you are not alone… maybe she is just not as well-read as she thinks because it's not possible that she does not annoy people. 

I get the impression absolutely nothing about her is genuine and he self-worth is wrapped up in hits, likes and retweets. I can't even handle it but that no shame thing means she shows up everywhere! 

There is a Disney blogger bragger thing, apparently Disney treats them like the goddesses they are so everyone else has to too.

I am so glad to see someone post about this !!!!

Over the years Patty’s really changed and her ego and self importance has grown over the years, especially in her own mind. I like to call it the big head syndrome. She started out on the DIS and is all Disney all the time. Just like Sassy….she takes many DL and WDW vacations without her family. Also she will shill and do anything to get free stuff !!!!!

The Arizona resort “situation” was the last straw for me. I know that resort really well and I can guarantee she was “looking” for issues so she can “work it” to get something in return. That’s Patty !!!

I see her at rDisney races always in costume. She calls herself a runner even though she does not run or finish in the allowed time.

She’s desperately trying to get on the Disney Mom’s Panel, and she will do anything to get on that panel. My issue is…if she does her ego will be inflated even more. Personally, I don’t feel she is very genuine, but very “fake”.

I agree with this post completely.  I really liked her a few years ago. She was one of the good Disney bloggers.  But now she's just consumed with getting stuff for free and will shill for anyone and everyone.  The Mom's Panel BS was my last straw with her.  I just had to stop reading.  She needs to just shut up about it.  I can't believe Disney wants someone that desperate on their panel.

I feel like I've read her obsessing about the Mom's Panel for a while now, but didn't she get on it this year?  There was a whole thing about her not doing the TinkerBell run in CA because she was going to FL.  Then she posted pics of all her outfits.

That's just it. I don't think they WANT someone like her on the panel. Don't tell me they can't smell her desperation from a million miles away. There's no way she will ever be on it. I will have lost faith in all things Disney if she ever gets on it!

For some reason, I can't quote today, but you may be right that she's now on the Mom's Panel.  I see that hashtag and immediately move to the next thing.  I can't deal with it.

She's not on the mom's panel. You guys didn't see the black clouds over where ever the hell she lives on the day the panel announcement was made?

Don't you think you would know? That's all she would ever talk about "Buy (insert name of whatever I got free) because, guess what? I am on the mom's panel!"

So what was it she went to FL for where she posted all her outfits?  I guess it doesn't matter.  I could check her posts if I really cared that much.

Do you notice that she, like Sassy, never seems to read other people's blogs?  To me, blogging is an interaction, and not just through the comments section.  She wants traffic, but can't be bothered to give other people a read.

It was a disney media event, but it wasn't the mom's panel. I believe it was by invite so it was kind of a big deal in the Disney blogging world, worth canceling a race, especially if she doesn't actually run. 

She does't read anyone's blog, she doesn't seem to care about anyone but herself. Unless you have gossip or some other connection you are no good to her. The only reason she is in any social media groups is so she can drive traffic to her blog. In fact, most of the time the only posts she makes in the running Disney FaceBook groups are to post a link to her blog. Even if it's just something she could say in a conversation.
