Can someone explain please?

Can someone please explain all this bloggy hate?

I read 101 blogs and so many of them are into putting other bloggers down. I mean, they really hate on them. These women are so competitive. It kinda scares me.

I thought a purpose of a blog was to write your thoughts, your feelings, write about your day. I thought is was supposed to be picture of who you really are without having to hide any of your faults.

I read these blogs and I actually feel sorry for the writers and for the people they are writing about. They can be very harsh. And then on top of that, I follow a lot of them on Twitter and the bashing usually continues over there.

Here's the thing, if you don't like what I have to say, delete me. If I don't like something I read or if I disagree with someone view on their blog; you know what I do........NOTHING. I don't comment, I don't hate, I just click the X and move on to the next blog.

I am slowly finding out how much competition there is out there for blogs. I just really don't understand it all right now. Maybe after being in the game a little longer, I'll figure it out a little more.

I just can't get over the hate I read. There is 2 blogs that I have in mind right now and they get some of the worst hate I have ever read. Other bloggers calling them every name in the book, hoping they would die, calling them bad mothers/people. I just don't get it.

I know I haven't opened up too much on here, but I will. I hate admitting my flaws. But I know if I can open up and get them out there, I am going to find people who are just like me and I will probably find people who are going to leave nasty comments because I call my kids "assholes" sometimes. (well, sometimes they are being assholes and that is the only word I can think of to describe them at that moment in time and I never call them assholes to there face)

I just wish people could get back to the basics. If you have nothing nice to say, do not say anything at all

I have never seen this kind of behavior. But I read a lot of humor blogs, so maybe that's why? I would be disheartened too.

You are absolutely right. I posted something earlier this week after being called a thief that was full of bitter words. I wanted to be clear about where my content came from and I used language that was completely inappropriate.

However, I cannot believe the lengths to which people have gone. Standing up for your integrity is one thing. Wishing death and destruction is something else all together.

I have decided that regardless of what others say and do, I can only worry about me. What I say. What everyone else says is well...whatever.

Great post!

I must be lucky, because I so rarely come across this kind of stuff. I have seen it, but I choose to not comment. I don't care for drama.

I like all my bloggy buddies and the way they think. I hope there's never any drama among us.

I agree with you, if I don't have something nice or funny to say, I don't say anything. Each person's blog is their own personal space, and it's not my job to police them. I don't know why some people are so hateful to each other. Jealousy? Pettiness? Boredom?

Yikes...I have fortunately never come across someone hating someone else on their blog. I'm glad...I'm not into that. Blogging is supposed to be fun, something you enjoy, something that should make you feel good. How can you feel good if you are tearing others down?!
