What people around me think about blogging? – My story

IMG_0121

I wanted to do this post for a really long time. Usually people around you won’t understand what you are doing while blogging and that is ok! But making fun of what you do and saying that you are “trying” is not nice at all. When I first started with my blog a lot of girls from my home town made fun of it, you won’t believe it but it happened. I know it because I was legit there when girls made comments about it. I’m one of those people that literally doesn’t give a F. So obviously that didn’t make me stop with blogging and doing my own thing!

I’m going to give you one of many examples I have, just because I don’t want to make this post too long. I was one day with my friend, we were having coffee. Place was super busy so there were a lot of people around our table. I remember that was time when I blogged for about two months or so. Me and my friend were chatting about stuff and there was a group of girls that were sitting next to our table. One of them looked at me and make a statement to her group: “Don’t you hate when people think they are so important that they start writing shit and expect people to read it?”. She looked at me and made that smile that says “You see what I did there?”. I looked at them and they were laughing so I decided to say something, even though I shouldn’t have. I said:”Looks like you really care about my shit so you have to comment about it. I’m glad you are enjoying content, there will be much more to come!”. They were younger, they didn’t know any better. I should just laugh at it, but thinking about it I’m glad I said something because they legit didn’t say anything after that.

I knew I would get comments about blogging and what I do. That’s just the way it goes. People will judge no matter what you do. You can legit find a cure for cancer and at least one person would say “Oh, he is just showing off” or something like that. The point is you can’t satisfy people, it is just impossible. So keep doing your thing and be proud of it. Obviously no one would post something on the internet that they are not proud of. I’m really proud of my blog and how far it came. My parents still don’t understand what I’m doing and what is blog, but that is ok, I don’t really fell pressure to explain everything about my blog to everyone. Most of my family don’t get blog thing also, I feel like they never will which is good on the one hand because it makes things easier for me!

  1. Ohhh Wow, That Was So Rude From That Person, So True You Can’t Satisfy People.I Had One Bad Experience With A “Friend” When I Mentioned I Had A Blog, The Person Laughed And Assumed I Was Looking For Attention, That Comment Made Me Laugh. My Mom And Sisters Sometimes Read My Blog.

    Keep Up The Wonderful Work.😊

  2. Love this girl and I can really relate! Just like you, my parents don’t get why I’m blogging and what the whole point of it is but I don’t care what my parents or what other people think. I love blogging and am proud of it and really love the people in this blogging community who are like family to me, always loving and supporting. That’s what really matters! Girl, so glad you said to those girls and you should def be proud of how far you came ❤

  3. Love you girl. So inspirational and i have also dealt with that, it’s horrible but I still carry on blogging. My family doesn’t know what blogging is either, so I guess we are kinda on the same path x

  4. I love this! Yes girl – who honestly gives a fuck about people like that? Your blog is something to be proud of and you KILL IT✨ plus these same people are the ones that will be like “oh I hate my job” or try to kiss up to you when you’re successful xx

  5. This is really interesting. I don’t really announce my blog, but my family and a few close friends know about it. Luckily, I haven’t had anyone say anything rude about it. They’ve been quite supportive, and ask how my blog is going. I had a convo with my dad recently, when he was interested in how I write my blog, how much time I spend on it, and I know that my family frequently read my blog which is cool! Btw, that comeback you had to that rude girl was great ;D

  6. Thank you, I’m glad you enjoyed. My parents don’t get bloggng at all, when ever I receive a PR package they are so surprised that you get stuff for free just because you have blog, it’s so funny haha. Everyone should be proud of what they do, our blogs are our little place on the internet and we put a lot of hard work on it, so of course we are super proud of it. xx

  7. I did definitely, it flatter me that they knew I had blog. I though that no one knew about it. Now it became more popular so I hear different gossip daily, but it’s a form of publicity and I don’t mind it at all. xx

  8. Wow, I’m amazed on how you handled that situation with those girls because that takes a lot of courage. You put them well on their feet and I doubt they will do it again!

    Not a lot of people know that I have a blog except for a few close friends and my parents, so I haven’t had the ‘pleasure’ to receive those comments but I do see that those people also don’t really understand what I’m doing and why I’m doing it, just like people around you. And indeed, it’s a good thing because for example they don’t know how much money I spend on makeup 😉
    You should be proud of your blog, I love reading your content just like a lot of other people!

  9. Whoa 😳 those girls were immature and mean. I am sorry you experienced this negative event. Family has no clue what a blog is, so I explain, but they always have a deer in the headlights look. My friends were supportive, but no haters with the exception of one bad comment from another blogger. 🙄

  10. Thank you dear. Yeah, we should not care at all what people will say, because there will always be hate. I agree, those people are the ones that will search for you when you become successful. xx

  11. Oh I wish my family would read my content sometimes. That is so cool to chat about your blog with family. Still my parents are really supportive and they are very happy when I get new blogging opportunities. Also whenever I receive something in PR they are so surprised that you get free stuff just because you have blog haha. Thank you, I though I was a bit harsh with that comment but after thinking about it I think it was just a right answer to her opinion. xx

  12. I didn’t find it offensive weirdly, I was amazed that someone knew of my blog because it was at the beginning of my blogging journey. When I hear people talking today about my blog I find it as a good publicity because more people will know about it haha. I had one negative comment so far I think, which is pretty good because I have a lot of posts up haha. xx

  13. Thank you dear. People definitely don’t understand what blogging is and what we are doing, which kinda makes me weirded out. To me blogging is just like a online magazine, that’s how I explain it to my mom and she still doesn’t get it haha. It’s a good thing that you don’t experience these situations, they can be really annoying, but with time you learn how to deal with everything. xx

  14. Yes girl!! Do it for you!! Screw all the haters 😊🌻if people don’t understand, that’s okay they don’t have to! If you love blogging for you, then continue to do it for you. Way to stand up for yourself and defend your blog as well. I think that’s important. Your blog clearly has great success so I’m glad you can put the rude comments aside and keep at it! Xxx

  15. Thank you, I definitely do it for me. I had many experiences like this so far, but they never had a negative effect on me, I think about it as a good advertisement for my blog because more people will know about it haha. We all should be proud of our blogs, because we work really hard on them. Keep up the good blogging hehe. xx

  16. That sounds like good old jealousy to me! And keep on not giving a F! My sister started reading my blog and she said Well if want my opinion….to which I said, I don’t, but thanks, I already have my own. And if you say anything ugly I’ll write you into a story!

  17. Those girls were so rude. I don’t get why people think its acceptable to insult what others love to do…seriously what are you accomplishing by doing that?? It stinks not having people around you supportive of it, but I love your attitude about continuing no matter what others say. Its what I’ve done too and I’m glad of it. Xxx

  20. That’s the spirit girl. My brother once read one of my first posts and he said “I can’t believe that you are wasting your time writing about beauty, no one is interested into that”. The only people we need to impress are us, others are not important. The most important is that we are happy with our content and blog work :). Thank you. xx

  21. I had even worse experiences, but it doesn’t bother me too much. I think of it as a free promotion for my blog haha. The best way is to do what you love, put hard work in and don’t care what people think about it. Thank you lovely. xx

  22. I had many experiences like this because I live in really small city where everyone knows the latest gossips, so I was a topic because I did something different. Still to this day I hear weird gossips about my blog but I really don’t care too much, because it is free advertisement for my blog haha. Thank you. xx

  23. When I say I’m a Blogger, some people see me as some kind of Celebrity and some see it as you’re just passing time with it right till you find a better job. Don’t be bothered hun, people who don’t support you don’t matter.

  25. I can’t believe they were so rude! But I think you handled it well, you always have to stand up for yourself. I’m really lucky, my mom is so supportive, she takes pictures for me, reads my blog from time to time, and she’s actually going to be in a makeup look soon, etc. She’s just amazing about it. She’s the only that knows about it because I know how people would react and it just wouldn’t be positive, probably snarky, so why subject myself to that?

  26. Omg I love this post. It’s so accurate 🙄 I feel like I share a lot of similarities with you that you described in this post. Both personality wise and having to deal with hate & judgment all the time, and not really giving a f but just having the impulse to retort back just to set them straight, even tho it’s not a huge deal. People are still so annoying lol. Anyway great post! 🙂

  28. Yes girl, that’s the spirit. We have to protect ourselves and our content. I think that people can be judgy, but also jealous so they like to gossip and be rude. But the most important thing is to own ourselves and our work because we are confident and happy. xx
