A small but fair rant

So I don’t have as many followers as some people who have only had their blog for 8 months,

I may not say the perfect things and have an interesting life to talk about,

I may not be that funny,

I may not want to follow all blogs back because I wouldn’t be able to read the bloggers I want to read,

I may not post everyday and know what to post,

I may not reply to comments in a day.

But I love my blog.

My blog is where I can be me, people don’t give me a label.

I don’t have to be that confident one or the shy one in the background or the one that dances with six year olds in the fountains *doesn’t sound as weird as you think, don’t judge me*

I don’t have to look perfect and have to dress up for the occasion.

Most times, I’m writing in my Bambi pjs.

Look, I don’t care if you unfollow my blog now or that you hate my posts, I don’t give a crap.

Also, I’m not going to promote you in my blog!!

I only ‘promote’ people when I think they deserve promotion.

But thank you for the people who read my posts and actually bother to comment on them,Β You are the best.

But look guys don’t give me a label in the offline or in the online world. I’m me and I’m not ‘hipster’ or ‘cool.’

I’m not trying to be and I’m me.

Guys but seriously, why do you even read my posts?! I don’t get it.

But thank you and I love every single one of you!

I appreciate and love every post you do, and don’t listen to what people say because you are amazing!!! I’m glad to have you as my friend! 😊

    This post is great. I don’t want to offend anybody but I had a situation a couple of times where people commented underneath my posts that they followed me and that I should go follow them back now. I hate that because first is that I only follow blogs I really like to read and second I don’t want followers who follow me just for the reason that I follow them. I rather have one follower who likes what I write then a thousand who don’t care and just want me to follow them back.

    I feel the same as you. I sometimes feel that am I blogging wrong because I don’t have as many followers as people who’ve had their blog for half a year. My post quality isn’t that great, and I feel like my posts aren’t that interesting. But it’s my blog, so I can do whatever I want.
    Great post again – I haven’t commented on your posts in ages!! D:

    this is so true I feel like this sometimes as well. I cannot STAND comments like ‘Oh I followed you, can you follow me back’ or something. Like NO, I follow blogs I WANT to read and in my opinion following someone isn’t the same as support, because I have tons of followers who have never liked, commented or probably even read any of my posts like what even. anyways, I love your blog. πŸ™‚

    when I first saw your blog , I decided to look further because of the design. I think it’s really cool but I liked it even more because I like the way you write. And I find you relatable and I could tell you do what you want with your blog and I liked that because I admired it πŸ™‚
    I follow you because you are one cool chick!

    Blogging for me is the most sincere form of expression! I get really sad when people use it for promotional reasons and lose all credibility. The logical thing is to like and follow things that you want not because you are hoping for people to follow back! I honestly love this post! Keep on doing what you do!

    when I first found your blog through chocolate drops blog and started reading your post I seriously laughed out loud . You were doing everything that bloggers probably want to do but don’t because they are afraid they won’t be followed or people won’t like their blogs . To be honest I used to feel that way initially when I first started writing because Isn’t that what every “blogging expert” or blogging manual tell you to do? To be overly active, subscribe to every person who subscribes to you , comment and like even if you are posting the same lame comment on every blog because otherwise you will be the only one reading your posts?
    I admit I’ve grown very slowly as comsoredbto other bloggers and initially I used to feel incredibly stressed that I wasn’t getting followers etc. I’m not the type who will follow people back just for the sake of following them that’s like inviting spam into your inbox . Maybe I’m not way up there in the numbers game but I still enjoy blogging and hopefully there are people out there who will still hit that follow button beause they geniunely are ingested I’m reading what I have to say πŸ˜‡

      Awh, Thankyou! I write what I want to write. It’s my blog and I can write anything and if my followers don’t like it, that’s their problem not mine. But I’ve had good feedback from people because I guess I write about things which others are too scared to πŸ˜‚
