Keepin' it Classy {Blog Positivity Week}

Funny Confession Ecard: Well look at this. She just hit 5,000 followers. I hate her... Until she invites me to guest post.

Let's not do this.
Let's be happy in others successes.
I know it's hard.
I do it too.
It's not about followers.
It's about readers.
It's about connections.
Like this post so eloquently put it.
Funny Confession Ecard: I used to follow her blog. But now I'm just in it for the giveaways.
This is happening.
And it makes me sad.
Some of my favorite blogs are ones
that I found via a giveaway.
It's easy really.
If you don't like the content,
then don't enter the giveaway.
The person hosting is giving you free merch
because they are excited to do so.
Don't ruin it by only joining
because you want the free swag.
It's bad bloggy vibes.
Funny Confession Ecard: That b@#ch stole my link up idea!
Has this happened to you?
I'm sure at one time or another it has or it will.
How many WIW posts are there to link up weekly?
How many "what I loves" are there?
Have an idea?
Create your own linky party.
I'm sure your bloggy friends
and readers will support you.
Funny Confession Ecard: That post was legit! So I hooked you up with a re-tweet. Now follow me back.
Re-Tweeting is the business!
No, hear me out...
Is it just me or does your heart swell when
another blogger shares your post via Tweet or Facebook post?
Always share what you love, and who you love.
Even if you have like 10 followers on Twitter like I do.
Some posts are just too awesome to keep to yourself.
NOW, about that follow me back crud...
This is not the business.
I know everyone wants a follow back,
but wouldn't you like them to follow you back
because they want to and like your content?
Funny Confession Ecard: I can't write another post on fabric flowers, what I love today, or how awesome cake pops are!
No?  This feeling is just mine?
Sometimes I feel like I'm pushing my posts.
Like, I'm writing just to link up.
And while I adore link ups something fierce...
Lately I just wanna write some momma stuff.
Some marriage stuff, and some life stuff.
When I get this feeling I know,
it's time to go back to the drawing board.
It's your blog!
Write what you want!
Those linky parties will still be there next week!
(possibly my new mantra)
Funny Encouragement Ecard: I pledge not to leave any anonymous comments. If I'm gonna say it, then I better own it.
I understand that sometimes blogs inspire us to speak.
Good or bad, but let's be nice.
Let's pledge that the next time we are fired up about a post,
that we email that blogger directly.
That way any "negativity" is between you two,
and not the blogging world.
It's ok to disagree, it's always ok to disagree.
Let's just be less messy about it.
Funny Family Ecard: Let's make something awesome so Mommy will blog about us!!
Why is this so hilarious, but so true?
Have fun in bloggy land!
Make bloggy friends!
Get involved in other bloggy conversations!
Be inspired by your life, and the lives of others.
This is my space to be me.
And your blog is your space to be you!
Take joy and pride in that.
Be grateful for the bloggy friends you have,
and be excited for the ones you are going to make!!
It's Blog Positivity Week y'all!
How are you celebrating?
 All cards were created at by me AbsoluteMommy.

I am not employed or compensated for any of these creations.

Check it out!
I'm a guest over there today!!


  1. LOVE you friend! TOTALLY pinned the classics above ;)

  2. Love this. it's totally all true. (from what little i know about the blogging world still). great post.

  3. Have you ever found one of those posts that you feel is speaking directly to you? This is one of those posts for me! I love it!

  4. This is interesting especially after giveaways. I love Shari and I am working hard for those numbers but I do get carried away. Now it's time to be humble. Like expecting readers to think my daughters fingerprinting is the Picasso in our room lol. Which to me it is but others I don't think will feel the same!! Hahaha

  5. This has made me feel better today cause sometimes we just have to laugh at ourselves in the blog world. Sometimes I totally do something so I can blog about it... but then it's also felt good to do that new thing! I've only really just started linking up to things in the last month and I do feel like it's impacted my blogging and making me feel less inspired. Sometimes I want my week on the blog to flow without being broken up by a daily theme. I like your new mantra... the linky party will be there next week.

  6. This post was hilarious and so true! It's so true that I find a lot of new bloggers through giveaways, but if I don't like the content I still follow. I just feel so bad unfollowing, how someone's heart might drop seeing they lost a follower. I know I'd be pretty upset!

  7. Great post, Megan! Thank you so much for the shout-out too. :)

  8. I love this outlook on blogging. I've always believed in writing for myself and if other people want to read it then I love them for that. I'm going to write either way.

  9. This made me laugh but it's SO true :) Awesome post!!

  10. It's funny but it makes me sad to think there are so many people blogging just for attention or tweets or shares or whatever. People should be blogging because they like to write and meet new people, not because blogging is some kind of popularity contest.

  11. This is so awesome! I blog for myself & get freaking excited I get a new follower & every time I follow someone else, I am like YAY! I know that feeling of getting a new follower & I assume just about everybody feels the same way. Thanks for this post :)

  12. These are great! Made me laugh and smile

  13. Well said friend!! It is all SO true!! :)

  14. This is a fabulous post and I wholeheartedly agree with you! I am loving the true friendships and relationships that I have formed from blogging. I am trying to find my balance right now and my blog is a work in progress. Thank you for this post, I needed it this week!

  15. Love all of these!! Every bit of them are so true. I get so annoyed with all of the "follow for follow" comments.
    And don't even get me started on Anonymous comments. I had a girl that I knew stalk my blog and leave tons of hateful anonymous comments. It got pretty ridiculous.

  16. This is great! You are so funny, I love it! Those cards are brilliant! Thanks for the reminder of doing what we want on our own blogs, owning it, and not getting caught up in doing link parties just to do it. :)

  17. I love this post, and all of them are so true! It's hard to not get caught up in the 'followers' and all that business. I want followers who are excited to read my posts not just have followers for the sake of seeing my numbers grow. Thanks for posting this!

  18. Such a great post Megan! I love it. You are wise beyond your years. I am so glad to have you as a bloggy friend! And those pictures are the bomb!

  19. I love reading your posts that are just for you, your family, your life!

  20. Popping over from J&Ms but DUDE... CAN I just SAY what an AWESOME post this is! :) YOU are SOOOO right!!!

  21. looooove this! you made something that shouldn't be serious but is kinda serious really interesting and fun to read. {i hope that made sense... ;)}

  22. Loved this! thank you for reminding me of some important blogging rules to live by!

  23. I just totally agree with this. It's not about numbers, it's about readers. I have made a few really good friends on here :) So great.

  24. Oh my word! The cards were brilliant Megan!!! And too funny, but yes I do agree with so many points you made here. I feel the same way - sometimes it gets hard to post but it is so liberating to write what's really on your heart. big hugs!!!

  25. Hahaha these are hilarious and so true. It shouldn't be a competition. Blog for YOU!

    xo Shane
