Last weekend, I was invited by the lovely Lauren from ShoesandSashimi.com to attend her very first event. She hosted it at the charming Rebecca Minkoff store on Filmore St. here in SF. The event featured the Rebecca Minkoff Fall 16 collection, nail art and some bubbly too. Lauren put together a great event! Not only did I preview the new collection, but I also got the chance to meet Lauren face to face after following her on Instagram for some time now.
It felt really good being there and supporting a fellow blogger. With that in mind, I wanted to take this chance to talk about bloggers supporting bloggers. Yes blogging is a very competitive scene, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t support each other. Putting someone down will not lift you up!
In this domain especially, there’s a lot of jealousy going around. I’ve even seen feeds where people come together to diss a certain blogger, so shameful. The words they used and the amount of hate towards someone they don’t really know were absolutely horrific. I wonder what kind of people do that? Are you so insecure with yourself that you have to diss someone for no reason? And the funny part is that their comments were not about her content. They were about the way she looked, she dressed, etc… Very, very sad!
As females, not just as bloggers, we should be encouraging one another. We should be there for each other. Jealousy won’t get you anywhere, trust me. Work hard and don’t mind what others say. I get that the blogging scene is becoming saturated and “making it” in this field is becoming more cut throat. But attacking someone behind their back will not make their blog fail and yours thrive.
I really hope we can stop all the hate and jealousy and online bullying, and instead focus on our goals. I urge you, to be supportive for one another and spread love. Words can hurt and they can also brighten someone’s day too. So please, go leave a nice comment on someone’s blog or on Instagram and let’s spread the love today!
