  • Chronicles: Hell Hath No Fury

    Oh, I might have stuck my foot in it.

    I have a problem.  I love blogs, blogging, blogginess the whole thing.  And then I have my favorite bloggers who inspire me, somehow, and I keep tabs on them.  I recently found a pretty awesome blogger, I love the photos she posts, the quotes she finds and shares then she has this really cool feature where people will write her and she responds to their questions on her blog.

    This morning, I was flipping through her blog, and noticed a particularly harsh criticism by a …well, I can’t say fan, but lurker, perhaps?  Someone who has read her blog long enough to know her style and then write about it only to say how much they hate it.  I was puzzled.  How rude.  This was my first thought.  How rude of them to criticize the way someone expresses their thoughts.  Uh, it’s THEIR thoughts.  It’s THEIR blog.  How ever irritating someone’s writing style may be, is it REALLY necessary to write them and puke up your thoughts about it?  Honestly.  Wouldn’t it have been better to just stay a lurker, and then *gasp* quit reading that blog?  So, I went over to that meany’s blog and checked her stuff out.  She has her own style!  Who would have guessed?  She has her preferred way of expressing herself.  Oh my.  Who am I to judge?  In my opinion, her writing style was nice!  But, I’m not fond of people who so rudely criticize something they have no claim to, so I won’t stick around…

    It is true. I would be lying if I didn’t admit to this.  I have certain blogs that I no longer read because they were AWFUL (in my opinion), but I didn’t need to write and tell them that!  I just kept it to myself, and no, I will not reveal who I dislike.  I just stopped reading their blog and moved on.  How novel.

    Oh, hell hath no fury like a blogger scorned :)   So, you blogger meany, are you going to come over to my blog and bully me around?  If you’re bored enough, you just might.

      Yeah, *sigh* like I said, I think I stuck my foot in it, because I went over to that meany’s blog and politely defended my *favorite blogger*.  I gently reminded the meany that we each have our own styles and our blogs are like diaries…just a little less private, but very much our own thoughts and opinions.

    This one’s for you, Kat. I know you don’t know me, at all, but I love your stuff and appreciate your version of creativity.  Keep it up!  And to that meany, you’re pretty creative too, you just use it the wrong way sometimes . Why not find a way to creatively StoP reading Kat’s blog :)

    I hear you. There’s an entire forum dedicated to putting bloggers on blast (getoffmyinternets.net); it’s like a train wreck. I can’t not look.

    Re: catty bloggers…just yesterday I experienced a catty action by a fellow modest fashion blogger. I am attempting to get better about leaving comments on other blogs, so I’ve been visiting this blogger’s blog and leaving comments. My comments leave a link to my blog (normal…RIGHT?)? Well, I went back to view follow up comments after mine and that catty blogger had EDITED all of my comments so that a link to my blog would NOT be displayed. I thought maybe she did that for all comments. A quick glance through revealed that she did NOT do this to all comments–JUST MINE. Why? The only thing I could come up with is that maybe she wants comments in her blog to mention another modest fashion blog. That’s the only thing I could come up with. I wanted to email her for clarification, but after 2 minutes of puzzlement I went on with my life.

    It’s good that you stuck up for the other blogger; blogging is no joke. People start blogging for many reasons and it’s always a reality check when the negative comments/press start flowing in.

    I’ve learned to take it in stride and focus on the people that DO like my content; life is too short to worry about the minority.

    Keep up the good work, Mommy Misha!!

    Ps. I was typing at lightning speed. Don’t judge me if I have a slew of typos/grammatical errors.Ha!

    SHame on her! I don’t get it. I really don’t. *sigh* Yea, like I said, I think I may have stuck my foot in it, but I’m glad I said something. Kat didn’t deserve such harsh criticism. (oh, and my grammar is atrocious at times, no worries, I wasn’t looking!! hahah)
