I hate rude people. Those of you who know me in real life will know this. I’m always picking up on rudeness from others and very often correcting them, which is why being an unintentionally rude blogger is hard for me, and one of many reasons why I’m leaving my job to pursue my blogging career.
I never intend to be rude, but when you work 18 hours a week, look after an almost 2 year old and blog in your spare time it is impossible to keep up with everything.
I rarely reply to comments, comments on my blog and my Instagram are almost always left ignored. I often intend to re-visit that persons account and reply there but it rarely happens. Not replying often leaves me feeling guilty but unfortunately I just don’t have the time, how the bloggers who receive and reply to thousands of comments daily manage is beyond me, I salute them.
My blogging time is limited, I can either create new content, film and take photos, reply to emails offering great opportunities or reply to comments. Unfortunately replying to comments has to be the lowest priority. As I type this I haven’t replied to emails for a week, how am I supposed to find the time to reply to emails let alone comments?
This lack of time is one of the reasons that I have decided to leave my dream job and make blogging my job. I’m very lucky as many people don’t ever get the chance to work in one dream job, and here I am in the position of having to pick one dream job over the other. Whilst lucky it’s also bloody tough.
Choosing blogging as my career means that I can push even harder at this hobby of mine that has bought me so many amazing opportunities, amazing experiences and, most importantly, amazing friends. Choosing blogging as my career means that I can spend a lot more time with my daughter. Choosing blogging as my career means that we save a fortune in nursery fees. Choosing blogging as my career means that I no longer have to be unintentionally rude.
