Have You Ever Encountered Blogging Resistance?
Saturday, June 02, 2012
A couple weeks ago I was explaining to a friend about my starting this blog and how much I loved writing it and showing all the fun stuff I do.
Her literal reaction to this was "Oh no, not a blog" and then she rolled her eyes right at me!!
I was stunned. This was supposed to be a good friend of mine and I was trying to explain how important this has been to me and how much I've grow in the last couple of months because of it.
After the initial sting of my feelings being hurt wore off, I started to think more and more about what had happened.
Am I missing something here? Is there some sort of blog stigma out there that I am unaware of?
I really don't understand. To say "Oh no not a blog" to me is like saying "Oh no you read magazines" insert sarcastic eye roll here... Blogs aren't one thing... They are everything.
Personally, I would say that I'm mostly a craft blogger and just like magazines that's only one subject out of hundreds, thousands, possibly millions of the different subjects out there.
So I decided I needed answers from other bloggers. What do you think?
Do people just not fully understand what a blog is or is there a true aversion to them? Do I just have a mean friend? Have any of you faced any kind of criticism for being a blogger?
