When I first started blogging, my goals were to make money, period. And I did. In no time, I was in the top 50 money making blogs along with some very well respected affiliate marketers. But then, I realized it was taking over my life. It was changing me, the competitiveness, the money, all of it and I hated myself for who I was becoming. So I switched gears and directed my focus towards mom blogging. It was the complete opposite and felt I had found my place. Then, out of nowhere, it becomes this shark infested sphere right before my eyes and I’m thinking to myself how it’s just like playing with the big dogs of the affiliate marketing world………….so.sad.
What’s even more sad, is seeing people who I fell in love with online, go to hell. People who made me laugh, people who I respected, people who I thought would always stay true to their words.
I am so sick of people stepping on their friends to reach high places, secretly plotting with other bloggers to take down or beat that person. I’m sick of all the hypocritical, back stabbing liars that I’ve been seeing more of lately. I’m sick of people contradicting themselves and stupidly thinking we don’t see behind it. YOU ARE THE IDIOT, not us!
YOU ARE NOT HER. BE YOURSELF AND QUIT TRYING TO BE HER! CREATE YOUR OWN FREAKIN’ IDEAS INSTEAD OF STEALING OTHERS.
I’m also finding it amusing that fairly new bloggers are defining themselves as experts too. Wow, you go from asking everyone around you how to do this, how to do that, blah blah blah and yet, you turn around and dish advice acting like you know it all, not even recognizing WHERE YOU LEARNED IT!!!!
You say you don’t want to be that kind of person and you say you’re gonna change, you say you’re gonna be a better blog but do you do it? Do you actually follow through and be the better person, the better blogger or are the reasons that motivate you come from jealousy of what others are, what they’ve accomplished, where they are going and where you are not?
If I sound pissed, I am. I am sick of all of it, and you make me want to quit! And if you think this is about you, then you’re probably right and maybe you outta change a few things.
