|I even made a button for those of you who would like to join in on the movement!|
Can I just say that I am truly honored by the outpouring of love and support I have received since my blog went “public” in May. I can’t believe that it went from just 26 followers to over 110. I want you all to know that you matter to me. That I consider you my friends and that I would NEVER do anything to hurt your feelings or make you feel less than what you are worth. You are wonderful, you are important, and you are the coolest for being my buddies!
Today I was made fun of for the first time in the blog world. To some it was just poking fun, to others it was rude and hurtful, and to another group it was completely acceptable. Let me tell you something. It is not acceptable. It is not ok to make fun of other people, not even when followed with bless your heart, or just kidding, or a disclaimer.
It is not ok to bully or treat others less than what they deserve. We are all here in this world together, why not lift others to higher ground? I don’t get it.
When I was younger I was made fun of a lot, quite harshly. In elementary school I was always called mean names, usually it had to do with my weight. Some of those names followed me throughout high school, and sometimes I still hear those mean names in the back of my head when I look in the mirror.
I did thin out a little in high school, thanks to playing sports. I tried to fit in with my teammates and I found a few dear friends there. But it wasn’t quite my niche. It’s as thought I’ve been searching for a place to finally fit in and I have finally found it.
It’s here. In the bloggy world as a crafty/diy blogger. And for a while it felt pretty safe. And it still does…mostly. Although I do admit, I am terrified to link up at parties now, just in case my project that I put my heart into will be made fun of again…
We are all here as bloggers offering something to the world. A little piece of us, of our hearts, and lets be honest, a lot of our time. So I would like to challenge you all to join me in what I would like to call “The Thumper Movement”! Will you join me in making sure this blog world stays a kind place? Will you join me in leaving other blogs better than what you found them and helping other bloggers feel good in their own skin?
I even made a cute button for whoever wants to join in!
I guess what it all comes down to is that right here, right now I’m promising to not say anything harsh or mean or negative to or about another blogger on my little corner, and I will delete and ban all commenters who bring negativity in.
It’s that simple. People just need to be nice. Is that too much to ask?
Thank you for listening to me vent. I appreciate it.
Who’s with me?! You can grab my button towards the top of my sidebar!
