MEAN GIRLS

I know many of us follow Slastena's blog. Her blog made me start my own to tell you the truth! (Thanks Slastena!) I didnt know how to write a blog but after coming across her blog through my love for Jcrew, I finally became comfortable as to how and what to blog about.

How can someone who exudes such positive energy be under attack? I read her apology and it seriously was a testament to her character. She is selfless, kind and humble. She obviously is such a strong woman, having a wonderful career, being a great wife and mother to her family. However, I could tell from one of her responses to me that she has been hurt by some mean comments. Why do women have to pick on other women and make them feel bad? It is stressful enough to have men do that to us but ladies, we need to uphold our sisterhood and be supportive of one another. Blogging is therapeutic and its free! We need to appreciate the time that each of us put in to share a part of ourselves to friends and complete strangers. Dont take this wonderful experience away from anyone by making it an upsetting one.

Responses, comments and blogging is not an obligation it is a choice. I have more than 9000 visits but 17 followers, I rarely receive comments but I am very thankful that I have this medium to express myself.

To the "mean girls" please try to be positive! This is for you Slastena dear!

  2. @dinagideon: Thanks for being a follower, it is greatly appreciated! I really felt I needed to take time to stick up for such a wonderful lady. I havent met her in person yet but I know that she is great. She is a "cyber friend" but still a friend and friends are always welcome in my life. Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I also visit your site and enjoy it. Thanks dear, I am glad you agree with me =) Have a great week!

  3. It's always a bummer when my favorite bloggers feel they have to respond to negative comments like Slastena just did. Especially since she clearly has nothing to apologize for - the problem is the commenters own negative view of the world that they feel obligated to spread around.

    ps - I love your music!

  8. @Slastena: You are so welcome =) You bring so many smiles on our faces when you share a piece of your life with us through your blog. It is my way of showing how greatly appreciated you are by me and I know by many others as well =)

    Again, dont let the negativity get to you. There are far more supporters than haters =)
