Getting it off my chest
There is something that has been going on in the blog world lately that has been bothering me:
The idea that if you have money or certain privileges, that you're not "real".
I find that for the very popular bloggers, if they aren't constantly complaining about their financial situation or the latest problem in their life, the blog community turns on them.
If they go on a trip to a nice place, get a book deal, go for a pedicure, mention meeting/hanging out with someone well known, or post a picture of themselves they get comments like "Well, aren't you full of yourself" and "not all of us can afford to get a pedicure".
What's wrong with working hard, and as a result, treating yourself to things?
It doesn't make you any less "real".
Just because someone blogs open and honestly doesn't mean they're writing every detail of their lives, and yet, people are so quick to judge.
I am going to the Hamptons tomorrow. I will be staying in an amazing multi-million dollar house right on the water. It's the same house I got married at.
But, what does that have to do with me? With my financial situation?
Just because I have friends with money doesn't mean I'm "full of myself".
What if I did have money?
A few years from now the husband will be making a lot of money, and I will be able to live in a big house and buy nice clothes and get manicures and pedicures.
I'll still be me though.
I'll still have problems like everyone else.
If you have money does it relinquish your right to be unhappy about something?
If you're an amazing writer and you get a book deal does it mean you've "sold out"?
It's one thing to voice your opinion or participate in a debate, but it's another to insult someone's character.
I just don't get it.
If you don't like what someone says on their blog, just go somewhere else
Seriously, leave me a message! .
