being a successful & kind blogger
It is so discouraging, to me, to see "successful" bloggers out there who have such a, seemingly, snobby attitude towards those of us with very basic questions. This has happened to me several times on blog "support" groups. Support? Ha! More like a clique-y, support-the-other-cool bloggers group. Now, maybe I'm reading things the wrong way but, honestly, I don't think I am. To those "big, successful" bloggers out there. Who do you think is reading your blog? Following your blog? Yeah, the majority of your readers and followers are little old nobodies like myself. Where do you think you started out? Yeah, pretty low, didn't you? If you cannot take the time to be kind to little newbies, well, I just don't think you're all that and I don't give a flip what your "alexa" rating is or how much your blogging rakes in. By being kind I mean: When saying you're there to help and support you actually help and support by answering everyone's questions rather than dozens of you ignoring every question I have. Ugh. You can tell I'm a little annoyed.
I would love to form a support group of knowledgeable and kind bloggers who realize that everyone of us started out in the very same place. Nothing annoys me more than "successful" people (bloggers or otherwise) looking down on those of us who are right where Ms. Successful was 2-3 years ago. Gets on my last nerve.
All that to say, if any reader of mine would like to guest post on things that up and coming bloggers would find useful and be willing to answer all questions, I would love to have you guest post here! There is SO much I don't know and would love to learn but don't even know where or who to ask and still don't know where to get the info I need. I'm sure there are tons of bloggers out there in the same boat.
Things I would like to talk about and learn about include:
The importance of having your blog, Facebook, Instagram, etc names be the same.
What is the deal with alexa? (See, I am clueless!)
The simplest and easiest way to start making money with your blog.
And so much more!!
Please if any of you would be willing to guest post on these things please let me know. :)
