When I started blogging I didn't even know there where Mommy Bloggers or Mommy Forums or an army of mommy's on Twitter. I got knocked up and having written journals my whole life, I started and online one to help keep me sane. I was anonymous in the beginning, until I came to terms with what was going on and I entered the world that I once loved but at the moment I feel like I have to walk on egg shells, have to watch what I say and actually stress about not the critics or readers but actually of fellow bloggers and tweeters. Not just any bloggers or tweeters, but fellow mothers!
When did this all become so ugly.
When did it become one big competition.
When did it matter who had the highest stats or what peoples stats even were.
When did we start sub-tweeting each other and pushing one another down.
When did we start bullying people like we are in high school.
Why are there mean girls and name calling.
Why do we care who has what sponsors or what giveaways or what reviews, because it's all one big circle and we all benefit from it because if we not giving it away, we stand a chance of winning it somewhere else and we get info on new products, I am proud and happy for other bloggers when they succeed or get another deal because I read peoples stories and I care whether they are happy.
The last while all I have seen is little digs from people left, right and center, attacking one another and I just can't justify it in my mind.
I can't see what you gain from being nasty or bringing someone down. I don't see what you could get at all, really I can't understand it.
We as "Mommy bloggers" or what ever you want to call yourselves it's just a name, we created this world we spend so much time in, we created a place to be ourselves in and a place where we can get support and information and also a place where we can build lasting friendship, why on earth would we then go and sabbotage it, with in the only way to put it, childish bullshit!
