When another blogger makes you upset…
Yesterday I was reading my blogs as I do most days and I came across a post by a frustrated mother who is pregnant and having issues with one of her kids. Being the understanding person I am and seeing no one had commented I thought I would leave a message. I left what I thought was a nice comment (not that I am perfect and there is always room for interpretation).
This morning I see this blogger has written an entire post arguing my comment. She seems to think I was insinuating that she was ungrateful to be pregnant, which I was not. However rather than just reply to me she wrote an entire post about it.
I know I am sensitive, and that’s part of what makes me such a caring person but this really upset me.
What’s worse is that upset, I swallowed my pride and left an apology on the new post explaining my position.
It is like a slap in the face that still stings.
I guess I need a thicker skin but honestly, I considery readers my “friends”. Not to mention if you are going to put something out there on the internet you shouldn’t be that sensitive about it (or at least know you are sensitive about it)
So to all my fellow bloggers put there if you are unsure about a comment I make on your blog just let me know to my face instead of complaining about it behind my back because that really hurts.
I hope no one ever treats this blogger the way she treated me.
