So. I mentioned yesterday that I have had a bunch of posts hanging out in my head for the last few weeks but just
haven't been able to get them out for some reason.
Nothing earth-shattering or terribly important even, just stuff.
So instead I go for the lighter posts, the ones with more pictures and less talking... you know the on's' that require a little less
thinking and effort.
Anyway, one day last week I was looking at my stats on blogger- you know how many page views, where people
are visiting from, traffic sources, etc.
I don't even look at them that often because truthfully I'm just not that concerned with my stats...
they don't actually matter to me much at all.
But here's the part where I get annoyed.
Like SERIOUSLY annoyed.
When looking at what people search for online that brings them here(unless they are just searching for my blog by it's name)
is : "Soule Mama annoying" and "Kelle Hampton annoying".
Because reading that just kinda annoyed the hell out of me.
* (If you are having deja'vu right about now; Yes, you're right, I have talked about this before.
You can read that post here. And actually, you should because I talk about my real opinion
on Kelle Hampton as well as the Kelle Hampton's you might know in your real life).
This is where I climb back up on my Soap Box and talk about how bloggers annoy me so much
with their judgment of other bloggers.
And when I say "bloggers" I mean those who blog, tweet, instagram...whatever.
Why on GOD'S GREEN EARTH are people spending so much of their time + energy worrying about
other people and how they live their lives?
NieNie Diaries) and James Bleubird of Bleubird Vintage has made me roll my eyes and wonder what is wrong with people... but has also
really made me a little sad + mad that other women(bloggers and non-bloggers) are so hard on other women.
Is it really just because as women it makes us feel better about our own lives and ourselves when we criticize + attack other women?
Why do we really care if--
someone throws tea parties in the woods and dresses their kids in cute matchy outfits every day?
what business is it of ours what someone elses religious beliefs?
if someone believes that one of their main jobs as a mother is to prepare their daughters to one day be mothers?
if some one's pre-teen boy is wearing a t-shirt we think is inappropriate?
if people only show the happy, glittery moments and not the rough, bad ones to the rest of the world?
My advice is this, not that anyone asked::
Live your OWN LIFE.... do what you think is best for you and your family.
Stop judging other's for their choices.
If what they are doing makes you feel bad about your life + what you are or are not doing,
then that is YOUR problem, not theirs.
My disclaimer is this ::
I am not claiming that I never, ever judged others... Sure I have.
In the online world if I don't like what someone is doing or saying, if I can't relate then I just wouldn't
What I don't and wouldn't do, is attack someone I have never met with mean comments + judgments while hiding behind a
computer/phone or an online persona.
How about giving encouragement, kind words or praise instead?
And if not? How about just keeping our mouths shut + our judgements to ourselves?
I think it is hard enough being a women and a mom... judging each other and feeling judged
just makes it that much harder.
Well, there's me on my Soap Box today.
I could really go on and on and on if I let myself... I won't do that to you though.
I hope everyone has a great day.
I have an open day today, nothing going on at all....so I am planning to clean, purge and organize until the kids get home form school.
Messy, junky, un-organized hoarder's house...here I come!!!
