blogger vs blogger

Posted in Blogosphere by yoshi on September 21, 2009

alright guys, its been a while since i’ve written a rant… so bear with me as i cus up a storm right quick.

i’ve been blogging for uhm… about 4 or 5 years now. i’ve blogged about anything and everything – from boy shit, to girl shit, from make-up to skateboards, you name it.

it wasn’t until i really started to focus my blogs on fashion and the world of feminity that i REALLY saw the nastiness people. oh how being protected behind anonymity and your computer can do wonders with your confidence.

bitches PLEASE.

many of us bloggers have been writing and posting since before you even knew what a blog was – matter of fact, since before YOU you even considered ANY interest in blogs. so what gives you any right to go on other sites/blogs and leave PATHETIC comments either dissing the writer’s style or comparing them to other bloggers, saying they are “copy cats?!”

my homegirl said it best:

oh goodness. First of all, when someone does outfit posts for their personal blog it does not mean they need to be showcasing strictly designer brands. It’s all about taking what you can afford and working with it. Nobody should be telling anyone to “step up their outfit game” regardless of what type of events they’re attending. Having personal style and staying true to it is about wearing what you like and not because you feel like you need to put on a show for your readers. This is a person’s blog that shows real life daily outfits, not some factious ensemble put on for Lookbook. The fact you have decided to tell —- that she seems to be copying —-‘s shoe style is by far the most ridiculous accusation I’ve ever heard. The fact that ANYONE could be accused of copying another person’s shoe/clothing style is outrageous. I wasn’t aware that certain shoes are only exclusive to one blogger’s style. It’s quite apparent a few of you have way too much time on their hands and are filled with a lot of negative energy, perhaps you should pick up a hobby. If you find yourself not being “wowed” by a blogger’s style picks then go find another blog to visit instead of leaving nasty feedback. You may not have noticed but this isn’t just another BS blog using generic templates on blogger, this is her career. You should be so lucky to have even 10% of the opportunities and experiences that —– has had.

Perhaps you should check out some of the other street style photos during NYFW…you may not have noticed but Kate Lanphear was attending runway shows while sitting front row in a crew neck sweatshirt.

before you go running your mouth on any one’s blog leaving nasty ass comments, think twice and do your fucking research.

slow your role and remember… we have your fucking ip address and we all have our own ways of finding who you are.

and seriously, like my girl said, pick up another hobby because obviously this blog shit ain’t working for you.

**EDITOR’S NOTE: thankfully (but unfortunately) most of my readers know better than to leave idiot comments… this post was written in response to a lot of the recent backlash i’ve read on other blogs… pathetic.**

    LMAO hey yoshi so sorry I couldnt meet you at the IFB event! You have a great blog here I will frequent more often =) Hopefully we will bump into eachother

    And I’m really loving this post, somehow I have only had one hate comment so far which was really pathetic for someone to leave but whatever I totally think your friend is right. On my blog I have designer stuff but I have sooooo much more vintage and thirfted items I just throw stuff together. Some people have similar styles no one has the right to go around accusing people of copying etc.

    Forget the haters, they have nothing better then admire what we do and get pissed about it 😉 Have a good week!

      hahhaah i’m glad you enjoyed it! and actually, this particular rant came from what i’ve been reading on my friend’s blogs as well as blogs i frequently visit – and i just got fed up reading all that crap. i think most users know better than to leave crazy comments like these on my blogs (probably because of posts like this lol) because i WILL rip them apart lmao. if they don’t like what they read, shut it and move on to the next – easy!

      ANYWAY – thanks for the comment and yes! please come by often!!!

    AMEN SISTA!

    i’ve read some nasty ass comments on other people’s blogs/chictopia/etc etc and i just can’t get over how uppity and disgusting people can be. it’s ridiculous to me…

    i always thought following and reading people’s blogs were supposed to be for inspiration and sharing.i guess these people have nothing better to do with themselves…

    i love your blog, btw. 🙂
