Wow…where do I even start. OK…let me first start out by saying, this is not directed to any one blogger. In fact, I’m writing this because my friends and I have dealt with many bloggers like this over the past few months. It’s kind of like an epidemic of some sorts.
“Ego” is defined as a person’s sense of self-esteem or self-importance. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with having high self-esteem or believing in yourself. What I’m going to talk about here is on a different level.
I’ve been blogging for over four years and I have met a lot of bloggers…from famous, popular, kinda known, to beginners. Yes, there are famous/celebrity bloggers like Perez Hilton, The Pioneer Woman, and The Bloggess out there. For the record, I’ve never met any of these three I just named. But I can tell you that the ones I have met are either extremely nice or not so much.
Hugs, shout outs, and high-fives to the popular bloggers who’ve always been nice and showed me respect on many levels and at many occasions!
I want to talk about those bloggers who are making a name for themselves, are getting contacted more than usual, and are starting to get noticed. It’s at this point when some of them let their egos take on another persona. If you’re constantly being rude, throwing fits because you didn’t get what you wanted, or always turning your nose up at other bloggers, then I think it might be time to step back and take a breather.
First of all…you’re a blogger. And as quick as your “popularity” comes, the quicker it can be taken away. It’s a proven and scientific fact (just kidding, I have no data to back this up). I have heard rumors of brands/companies refusing to work with bloggers because of monster egos.
Let’s not get a big head people! Staying humble and grounded will bring much more success and happiness in your blog life.
CAUTION: Sometimes bloggers are in bad moods, are dealing with real life issues, or are just shy. Give them the benefit of the doubt and don’t judge them right away. This post is targeted to the repeat-offenders (those who have been rude more than once).
Have you ever dealt with a blogger like this?
How did you deal with it?
How do you stay grounded?
