I'm normally pretty even keel when it comes to what I write on my blog. I don't like to ruffle feathers and I don't like to voice my opinion about controversial topics because I am not in the business of stirring up drama. Not today. You've been warned.
I am fully aware that I should be mature, rise above and not even address the haters, but unfortunately, I just don't have it in me. I slept on it and I'm still pissed, so yep, I'm going there.
I was sent a link to a mean forum called Get Off My Internets where people throw some major hate at bloggers to the point of viciousness. I think the site is disgusting and it is nothing short of cyber bullying.
Today's post is dedicated to the cowards hiding behind the fake names who were moaning that my blog was uninspiring and had poor picture quality. Guess what?
IF YOU DON'T LIKE MY BLOG, THEN GET OFF OF IT.
I have never understood this. If I don't like your blog, then I DON'T READ IT. And if I feel like complaining about something obnoxious that I think you are doing via one of your social media channels, then I will complain to a friend. I won't go on an Internet forum and hide behind a fake little avatar and spew evil. I have real friends that I can converse with in real life. Complex concept, I know.
There are a few other things on the forum that were said that I'd like to clear up. One of them accused me of photoshopping the picture I blogged of me with Bela Karolyi. Yes, that's what I do in my copious amount of free time. I make up elaborate stories about how I met Bela Karolyi and even go so far as to Photoshop a picture of myself with him.

And another one of the commenter complained that I drug out my "big reveal" of where I was moving as if anyone cared. Guess what sweetie, I can drag out whatever I want for however long as I want. You obviously cared enough to keep coming back to check every day. Thanks for the page hits! You're just making me money, honey.
Bottom line here is this. It's MY blog and I write what I want. I use iPhone pictures because I don't have 2K to drop on a fancy DSLR camera that's "hip" in the blogging world. This is not a photography blog and I'm not trying to inspire anyone. I write about my life and I share things that I think other's may like as well. It's my creative outlet and you are by all means entitled to hate it. There are plenty of blogs I hate and therefore, I move along, which is what I sincerely hope you decide to do.
I won't be addressing any kind of negativity like this again. I just hope these trolls do me one favor and GET OFF MY BLOG because sorry, I'm not getting off your "Internets" anytime soon. Air kiss.
Now, wasn't that all rainbows and unicorns? I really am sorry to be so negative, but I'm going to defend myself. And if I haven't already scared you away, please link-up below for Friday Favorites.
