I got my first bloggy award.
Why? Because I told a fellow blogger, who was visited by insecure (MEAN) commenters, this:
UGH!! Sometimes I hate people.
Even when people have disagreed with me on my blog, if they do it with respect, it’s fine. And I try to do the same for other blogs. It’s called human decency.
People who comment just to be mean are reflecting their own insecurities. I mean if they felt okay about themselves, they wouldn’t NEED to let you know what they “really think.” It’s pathetic.
You, my friend, are NOT pathetic. Don’t stop blogging. I’d miss you.
Which was easy. BEING NICE IS EASY, PEOPLE. Even for a grump like me.
Although, in reality, being mean is easier. Because we get to feel cool. And important. And OH SO SUPERIOR. But only for a millisecond. Then we need to find someone new to pick on. And they do! This is not an isolated incident. Did you watch the Today’s Show yesterday? Check out the video at the link on bloggy moms talking about the MEANIES, but also talking about the wonderful community of caring.
However, I am SO good at actively ignoring people that I’m not too worried. And I have too many cool people who have my back. Yay me! And YOU! KAPOW!
