A little different to my usual videos / posts - a bit more serious chaps! But you still might have a chuckle or too at my oddness in this video!
Anyway, for the post readers out there! After things I've seen today I had to make a video along these lines. There are nasty comments flying about regarding bloggers... and it's unfortunately a growing trend, I'm sure of it. Here, I'm talking about outfit bloggers in particular. These comments aren't from other bloggers (I've not seen that myself, although apparently it happens), but from non-bloggers. Your average web user - mostly women, from behind their bits of tech.
'You call that style?', 'that looks horrid on her', 'that looks awful' 'why would you wear that when you're that size', 'I'd NEVER wear that ergh' - all things I've seen in regards to outfit bloggers' photos recently. Despite their arguments, I truly don't believe these people would say these things in 'real life'. After all, their comments are often directed at complete strangers. I hate thinking that women are out there to upset others and I'm horrified by these comments. This is a really grim side of the internet. I'm not saying 'us poor old outfit bloggers'- it's more a question of women being supportive of one another, as Sheri said in her post about some nastiness that she'd seen towards bloggers. Snide comments will get you no where in life. We've probably all made the occasional one - in all honesty, I know I have and I've instantly felt guilty. But women who persistently do this damage women as a group.
I know you beauties who read my blog aren't those sorts - but it'd be grand if you could all help spread the word! Oh and nasty ones - if you are reading - on the web, there's that red cross button. Y'all seem to be unaware of that one. If you don't like someones blog, outfit, body, or whatever, that button is there for a reason. Use it.
(Ps. Do you like my telling-off-face?)
