This discussion post is kind of “heavy” but I thought I would talk about it mainly due to the fact that as bloggers, I’m sure this has happened to all of us at some point (or if it hasn’t happened to you yet, brace yourselves because…..)
Being ignored: IT. SUCKS.
Whether it be by other bloggers, authors, or publishers, it hurts. 🙁 It’s like, I took all of this time to contact you and to be all friendly with you and all I get is an “ignore?” Pfft, Keionda won’t be talking
to you anytime soon.
I just followed some other blogs and commented on their posts, basically being supportive and giving my opinion and all that good stuff. And guess what?
They didn’t even reply back! Seriously?? (I mean, I know life gets busy but I make a point to answer every comment.) I get it though, we get behind, things happen. I’ve responded back to comments a week AFTER. But at least I came back and took the time to acknowledge the commenter’s presence! Know what I’m saying?
I’m totally the pot calling the kettle neon pink since I have been that one blogger that didn’t comment back because I WAS GOING THROUGH SOME THANGS and was super busy during the time.
Some authors are epical at ignoring you…
I mean, HELLEEER, I’m a fan of your books and if I fangirl, telling you how much I LURVED your books or even commenting on something funny you said on social media, DON’T FLIPPING IGNORE ME. You’re not doing me a favor by answering me. That’s all I’m saying. Being an aspiring author I make it a point to respond to comments and to reach out, be inspiring… (pfft, sometimes) But most of the time when I take the time to comment on something they said, I’m usually ignored.
WHAT THE FRICK FRACK PADDY WHACK??
It doesn’t take a lot of brain cells or time to comment back or to simply “like” the comment. Heck, I know life gets busy so you can just like my comment, I aint a picky. But I’ll be a happy camper and won’t have to do a rant-y discussion post.
That’s all I’m sayin’.
I believe in responding to ALL my comments as well as going back on the person’s blogs and commenting back. (Same for Twitter) Obviously this isn’t what everyone does and that’s okay too. I’m just saying that’s not how I roll. I want everyone to feel loved and to feel like they’re a part of a community that is loving and supportive.
*rant officially ova* Keionda. OUT.
So tell me guys, has this happened to you? Was it with a blogger that didn’t respond to you? With an author or publisher that ignored your entire existence? Or was it someone else? DID IT GIVE YOU THOSE SAD FEELS?? I know I can’t be the only one in this. Sigh.
