Hateful opinions & comments give me the motivation to blog

Hello, my lovely followers and readers of my blog! I hope you haven’t missed me that much! 😉 

 I hope you are all okay and if you aren’t feeling ok. Just remember that’s it ok not to be ok and I hope you can get the right support you need and if you want to talk please remember that I’m here and the correct charities are here to support you!

I got my first hateful comment of the year! Listen I’m not bothered about it really. With blogging, you need to expect your post may cause some hateful and unhelpful comments and opinions. 

The comment was posted on a blog post what was a year old – You do realise that you’re not an award-winning blogger right? Them awards bloggers tag you in aren’t proper awards they’re just content fillers so making yourself out to be award-winning is wrong.

My reply was that I won an award in my local community for my blog. So does that make me award-winning?

That comment didn’t upset like it would have probably done when I was in a vulnerable state! They just give me the motivation to carry on and improve my blog to the best ability I can. 

But it did kinda annoy me for other small bloggers like myself.

Blogging isn’t as easy as it looks. You’ve got to write your content. Take pictures for that post. Publish that post. Promote that post.  Update social media accounts every day. 

A bit of support is needed and being nominated for a blogger awards feels like an achievement and is lovely. 

You do realise that hateful comments like these are enough to affect someone’s mental health? It isn’t needed. 

I don’t do my blogs for awards. I do it for helping people and hopefully saving lives. 

I do it to raise awareness and help end stigma. 

I do it to help my own mental health. 

Till next time! 

With lots of love!
