Ask Me Mondays: On Haters

Why does it seem like you have a lot of haters? Okay naman ang blog mo. :(

Hi Katy,
Thanks for this question. I knew a question like this would pop out. LOL. When I first started beauty blogging, I never really thought of having haters because I had a bigger thing in mind which was thinking of what product to feature on my blog. Hundreds of posts later, baaaaam, I've got haters.

You see, I was able to track down these haters then. As it turn outs, these are not the readers of this blog. It's either someone who knows me personally or someone who knows of me. When I started blogging, I tried my best to keep it a secret to my friends. So, imagine if someone who knows of you finds out about your blog - it only means one thing - they search about you. What baffles me though is why people search/search people they claim to hate. I'm human and guilty of hating on other people, too. Come on, we all hated on people at one point. Don't even deny it. But I don't google them. I don't see the point. There were also a few bloggers who seem to dislike me describing me explicitly on Facebook Group pages as if I won't be able to read it. Then, they have the guts to comment on my blog posts thanking me for a very nice review. I'm like, "Whyyyyyy you so two-faced, aye?"

As for those who only know about me because of the existence of this blog and dislikes me, well, thanks. Someone once told me, "if they hate you, then it means you made it because you've got something they'd kill to have." I even got a question as to why I get invited to events and I don't even dress up or put makeup on. Thanks for caring more than I care about how I look. Some people just really feel entitled about their "opinions" which are all invalid to me.

If I were asked this question 5 years ago, I'd probably answer with a 10 pager essay. But since I'm wiser now, I've learned the art of deadma. I can't please everyone no matter how I try. That's just how the world works. All I do now is that if I sense someone or even a co-blogger who doesn't seem to like me, I don't mind them. I don't even disturb them. After all, it's a win-win situation for me. I'm on your mind and you visit this blog and add to my hits. As I said, turn the negative notes to a positive one =)

Follow me! No? Yes? Yey!
