Dear Me To Blogging,
We have talked about this.
I broke up with you years ago, and yet your always around.
I wouldn't really have a problem with it if you were just doing your thing, away from me. The thing is though, time and time again I see you hurting the blogosphere and so we gotta talk.
Your lies are costing people their health and their businesses and so if you think I am going to sit on the sidelines and just let you hurt these amazing people, you got another think coming sweetie!
Right here, right now I am gonna call you out on the top 3 things you do that harms the blogosphere.
Call it an intervention from someone who cares and is tired of your nonsense.
You are going to see it get turned around, even if the last thing I do. Your day of hurting unsuspecting bloggers is done.
So here's your lies and the truth that will set these wonderful people free.
You've been toying with people long enough, I hope you had fun while it lasted!
Lie 1 In order to grow, you gotta look like everyone else and do what everyone else is doing.
I've said it before, I will say it again, your standards of "professionalism" are too darn high for newbies. The fact is bloggers have to wear enough hats as it is without your added pressure to do like all the things to keep up with the popular kids.
You know what?
Ain't no one got time for that!
Life has so much more to offer.
Lie 2 The health and the wellbeing of the blogger is secondary to the blog & business.
Give me a flipping break!
If the blogger does not take care of their health, then they will not be able to perform to the best of their ability on their blog and that's just not any good to anyone. Bloggers are people too they should take care of themselves as such.
Lie 3 If one does not put the time into all the social media platforms and learn all the algorithms as they change, and then try to jump through all these platforms hoops to get like all the followers, the one had failed as a blogger.
Nope! One does NOT need to use social media in order to be a good blogger. Bloggers have the right to only use social media platforms that work best for them. Oh, and they absolutely have not failed at blogging if they don't post on social media every single day.
Ain't no one got time for that!!
Fearful decisions do not create healthy blogs or healthy people and so this is just a quick heads up.
I'm so over the fear-to-move-because-of-what-you-might-do-thing. You keep hurting people and I've just about had enough of it. It's time to make a change.
It's time to take down your master.
So a note to my old nemesis Nannie Goat, and I'm sure your partner in crime, Jet...
I'm coming for you.
