Blog land is so very interesting.
I started blogging for First Day of My Life in the summer of 2011. I was so excited to start. Blogging still makes me happy - and excited. I really do absolutely adore it. I've met so many wonderful ladies. I love that I have a place to go to vent or to go to if I need support. It's wonderful.
I feel like one of the point of blogging is to share your story - share your thoughts - opinions - etc. but also, to get to know other bloggers. In doing so, you comment on other's blogs. (This goes for twitter or even pinterest, too!)
Have you found yourself treating a fellow blogger differently if they have more followers than you? Or if they have more comments in a particular post as you?
I've had some conversations with people lately that have felt like this. If a blogger has more followers than you, you feel like they are part of the "popular" crowd and a type of celebrity.
This isn't true.
Yes, they might get more "fan mail" than you. But they are still a blogger - just like you.
We all want to know we have 1,000 people visiting our blog a day. If we put forth effort into it - that will happen...but then blogging turns into a popularity contest and that isn't what blogging is.
The next time you post on a blogger's wall or tweet to someone that has four times as many followers as you - remember, they're just people. Just like celebrities - it's just a person. Yes, they might be incredibly popular...but they're just like you and me. Don't treat them any different - just treat them how you want to be treated...with love, care, and respect.
Has anyone else noticed this?
Ok, I'm going to stop rambling and show you my pretty pretty nails ;)
OH so I finally got that Seche Vite some of you ladies told me about - I tried it for the first time last night - not with this color, but another. I'll blog about it next Friday - especially because I'm dying to see how long it's going to last :D
It's gloomy here today on the beach - hope you have lots of sunshine where you are <3
