It’s crazy to think that I have been blogging for a whole year now. Before this crazy adventure, I never knew much about this side of the internet world or how opinionated people are about it! Within just a couple months of starting this little space, I had already heard most of these 9 things bloggers are sick of hearing.
I do believe that sometimes the reason people make some of these remarks is out of pure ignorance. Ignorance in not knowing much about what blogging entails and the fact that a blog becomes a part of who someone is, so you’re also insulting them too. You will also very rarely hear these comments come out of the mouths of successful bloggers because they know how hard it is to make your way to be known on the internet. I say successful because some people try to weasel their way to the top without actually working for it…and it doesn’t work that way.
While this post and video are very sassy and have a little attitude, I wouldn’t change my blogging choice for anything. I sure you will hear this from almost every blogger, but regardless of how many negative comments we receive about blogging, the pros definitely outweigh the cons. Blogging is more than a potential career. Blogging is a creative outlet for people everywhere to engage with others who share similar interests!
Before we get to the video, here are what some other bloggers are sick of hearing:
“That sounds easy…can you help me start one?”
“Awe, how’s your little blog going? Such a cute hobby!” Jordan – I think this is so condescending!!
“Are you going to make blogging your ‘career job’? You’re going to be sad and poor.”
“So… what’s your real job?” Debbie
“Advertise for our company for free and MAYBE we’ll share your post with out thousands of social media followers!”
“You probably make what, like $100/month?” Paige
“Do you pay taxes?” Brandy
This video is filled with brutal honesty, and if you are someone who takes offense to comment easily I will be okay if you don’t watch it. Blogging for over a year has opened my eyes to so many different things and I want to share my thoughts with you!
