I feel like sometimes in the blogger community, people get so caught up in the "blogger rules" that they lose a bit of themselves. I was talking with someone the other day that was complaining that she doesn't "follow" some blogs because they are "annoying". They played music, or were too cluttered, or didn't have ENOUGH content. *sigh*
I think it's important to remember that everyone blogs for different reasons. Some to make money, some to make friends, others as a journal of sorts. It's not our place to judge other people's blogs.
I think of my blog as my own personal space. And I am inviting you in, welcoming you in. You can come in, or not. But if you do- be respectful because what I put into my blog means a lot to me. My thoughts, photographs, complaints. Those things are important to me.
And please know, that I love and appreciate all of my readers and I go to your blogs because I love them and I love you! I love that you let me in to a little piece of yourself. And that you trust people will respect that you put yourself out there.
Of course, if I find a blog to be offensive or just overall filled with negativity, I will choose not to follow. But overall, I don't care what is in your blog or how it's laid out. It's yours. I will not judge you.
And that's all. Ha ha.
