A Whole Week


Oh Hai, 

Have you noticed something?

I've written on this blog every day for a week! When I started this blog for jollies in 2009, I knew nothing of making social media a career- I don't think anyone did really. 

As the years went by, other platforms sprung up and other projects presented themselves. In 2012 the opportunity to generate a revenue was there, as was a strong community of friends, things I loved doing and professional support (God bless my management company!). 



Over the last 8 years, I've learnt that I cannot spread myself too thinly. I can't make and edit multiple videos a week, write decent blog posts, write a book, manage twitter, facebook, instagram, talk at events and have a personal life. So, blogging slipped away a bit. 

This week I thought I'd do a little experiment to see if I still love it and yes, of course, I do. Blogging to me is like comfy old slippers. It doesn't get the most interaction, makes zero pennies and often this week I've just mused about nothingness but there's something lovely about that. It takes it out of, 'I need to do this today, it's my job', to, 'ahhh, I'll whip out a quick blog post'. I don't think it will ever be my 'main thing' again, but I love it none the less.

Turns out, yesterday's blog post ruffled a few feathers. I never thought it possible to cause offence (to the minority) by suggesting and explaining why cheating is wrong. To me that's very black and white. I've been told (nobody has contacted me directly but instead whispered on threads I'm not part of) that the issue has been that I singled someone out (although have not named or linked but did definitely refer to just one person) and that as my 'influence is greater than hers', that is unfair. 

So for that, hand on heart, I will say I am sorry. Perhaps I should have been even more clear that I think buying bots, followers, engagement etc is wrong for everybody and anybody to do. It is damaging to future brand relationships and insulting to readers/viewers. It is wrong for all. If the person who's insta stats I used is not cheating and perhaps just has those stats, my deepest of apologies, you crack on with ya good self and I'll hush my mouth! 

My apology is to anyone who has felt personally hurt by the way I voiced my opinions on my very black and white stand point on cheating. I still firmly believe that cheating is wrong but never want to cause personal hurt to another blogger (or yanno, person in general!). 

I'll leave it there and try not to cause too much trouble today!! Oopsie! 

Toodlepip!

  1. Jesus, anyone who got upset at your blog post did so from a feeling of guilt at having been called out. It is wrong to buy bots, and it is damaging AF to everyone else in the community, and most people can see through it.

    You do you Louise, ignore the jealousy.

    And I’ve enjoyed your blog posts this week! ��

    1. BREAKUP REHAB ( AWESOME TRUE STORY )

      I am Brian Donald and this is my testimony. In September 18th 2017, my girlfriend Maggie called it a quit to our 6 years relationship. it was pathetic, i tried to calm her down but she insisted on breakup because she has met another nice guy in Sydney. the pain was too-much for me to bear, so i went online to look for help then i saw a blog about this powerful spell caster from USA called Dr. Ugo Wonders. i read alot of testimonies about him but i was not too sure if he could help me because i was living in Australia but i decided to give him a try. i emailed him all about my relationship problem and my fear for distance, he assured me not to worry that distance is not a barrier and that the wind blows, so shall my help locate me in 24 hours.i trusted him by his words at once and followed his instructions. Immediately after 24 hours of casting the spell as he instructed me, my girlfriend who left me to be with another man came back home to me and started begging me forgiveness. i was shocked, surprised and amazed and i was like "wow" it worked like a magic. this is the reason i decided to share this my wonderful testimony with the whole world to contact this world classified spell caster called Dr. Ugo for any relationship or breakup issues via his email generalspelltemple@gmail.com or call his mobile number +13863369876 website: http://generalspelltempleblog.wordpress.com

    2. Hello, I am Theresa Williams After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4 pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again. Since then, I have made promise that anybody I know that have a relationship problem, I would be of help to such person by referring him or her to the only real and powerful spell caster who helped me with my own problem. email: drogunduspellcaster@gmail.com you can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or any other Case.

  3. I'm glad you've written every day this week Louise. Yesterday was a little controversial but it was honest - I didn't feel you singled anyone out either?

  5. Hmmm. I don't think it's about the fact you wrote about the subject more that it was a personal attack without any proof and very, very pointedly at a particular individual. This isn't so much an apology despite stating the word sorry, it's more or a justification which I'm afraid I don't buy. Your post yesterday was cruel and unpleasant. It wasn't part of the sisterhood and unfortunately for you the sticking together element of us blogging mums is what we most of us want to be a part of. I also definitely saw people challenge you directly on Twitter and didn't personally hear a whisper of it being discussed on threads you weren't a part of. I think a lot of people have been quite saddened by your words yesterday. I know I have especially when for the most part the parenting blogger community is SO together. So solidatory. I think it shows a great strength of character to be able to say sorry properly and throw hands up to admit when you're in the wrong. I wish you'd been able to do that in this post - there is still time. Instead of justifying bad behaviour surely it's best to say 'you know what, I was wrong and I am truly sorry for that' (not wrong for saying cheating is bad but wrong for being unkind and frankly wildly accusatory without proof). People who have the strength to admit when they've behaved appallingly can always be forgiven and things forgotten. It just depends how strong your character is I suppose..m

    2. What about this Rocknroller - seems pretty personal to me what you said about Katy Hill - but its okay right for you to name and shame? She isn't a real person or a mum & one - "Blogging Awards ceremony presented by an ever so muchly hyperactive Katy Hill. She irritated me if I’m honest. I mean, I’m sure she’s a great person to hang out with but watching her one woman love affair with herself on the stage and her more than a nod to a Gwyneth Paltrow style of accepting her own award left me cold and when she shouted at the audience to stop talking or leave I was more than a touch tempted to stand up and go – it was NOT delivered in a way I found agreeable.

    3. Shame you had to remain anonymous here and didn't have the balls to say who you are... or we could have discussed this further. I wonder why? I wasn't thinly veiling who I was talking about when I wrote about my experience watching the awards at Britmums and what I thought of that presenting style. Neither was I assassinating Katy's character just simply giving an opinion on something I watched. I didn't hear about or have other people's opinions on this but instead it was something I found deeply embarrassing to watch. Would I write it again? No, no I think not. Well, I suspect I would write it, think about it and then decide to keep it to myself. I can't pretend I didn't feel the way I felt when I wrote this but I wasn't libellous and neither was accusatory - it was an opinion piece. I can't take it back of course but I would say yes, it was unfair of me to poke fun at her. You are right. I have made many mistakes in life, this is merely one of them. I'm still not keen on the display I saw that day but I think I'm probably a better person today, nicer perhaps and I totally see your point although I do think an opinion on something I witness is slightly different to accusing someone anonymously yet not very hidden of bad practice without proof. Like I say, shame you felt the need to leave your name as anon - would have liked to discuss further plus say thanks for the link here - done my stats the world of good. I may not have heard of Louise before yesterday but plenty of better read people had and now some of them have heard of me - and I didn't have to pay a penny!

  6. You've practically quoted me on a couple of angles on this here yet nobody has contacted you directly? Say what? We've discussed it on Twitter you and I.

  8. So here I am. Someone who has been inspired by you. I've not said anything in private threads - the only thing that I have said is that I'm dissapointed that you made it so very easy for the person in question to be identified. I said that I agree with everything you said but not the way you did it and that your timing was shocking. I said it to your 'face' on twitter and you blocked me. I am no yes man and I stand up for what I believe in. And no. I've never bought followers. My social follows show that.

  9. I find it so frustrating seeing people that are blatantly buying bots and followers when other people are trying their hardest, and I think it's good on you to call people out on it!

  10. This really is a half hearted apology. You edited the original post to take the clear references to the person out and really you shouldn't have written that post in the first place. You had an opportunity to write a generic post about the use of bots/buying followers and instead decided to have a go at one individual. I think saying that no-one has spoken to you directly is far from the truth - you had comments from many on the post yesterday - unless you don't bother to read them - and you had feedback on Twitter and from friends of yours two. Really, you should be contacting the person involved to apologise and should be putting an apology on the actual post - as many that read that one won't read this one which makes it meaningless.

  11. I totally back you on this Louise. People are SO touchy these days on the internet and anything that can be perceived the slightest bit bad people go out and have a field day. I completely agree with what you said - buying your followers is cheating and it's not a way to get an authentic following. You worked really hard to get to where you are. I think the post is fine, people are just so touchy these days. Keep being real Louise :)

  13. You didn't offend anyone by explaining why cheating is wrong...we all know that and it goes without saying. You pointed the finger at a mummy blogger (clearly identifiable till you edited it but now talked about all over the place )And you did this without PROOF and this is of course unfair. You should delete/amend the post please and remove identifiable comments

    ReplyDelete
  14. I don't think anyone objects to the sentiment that cheating is wrong - and people are not condoning buying followers. What they are objecting to is someone being named (or strongly hinted at in the first edit of this blog) and assumptions being presented as facts, rather than having any accompanying evidence or proof or the "facts" being corroborated in any way.

  16. Hi all,
    Read my testimony!
    Getting ex back after a breakup.
    My boyfriend of a 2 year just broke up with me and am 28 weeks pregnant. I have cried myself to sleep most of the nights and don’t seem to concentrate during lectures sometimes I stay awake almost all night thinking about him and start to cry all over again. Because of this I end up not having energy for my next day’s classes, my attendance has dropped and am always in uni and on time. Generally he is a very nice guy, he ended it because he said we were arguing a lot and not getting along. He is right we've been arguing during the pregnancy a lot. After the break up I kept ringing him and telling him I will change. I am in love with this guy and he is the best guy I have ever been with. I’m still hurt and in disbelief when he said he didn't have any romantic feelings towards me anymore that hurt me faster than a lethal syringe. He texts me once and then mainly to check up on how am doing with the pregnancy, he is supportive with it but it’s not fair on me, him texting me as I just want to grieve the pain and not have any stress due to the pregnancy. I was really upset and I needed help, so I searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and I did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my boyfriend came to me and apologized for the wrongs he did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I and my boyfriend are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com call/whatsapp: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.

  17. I think I must have missed the post in question (I'll head there in just a sec!) but you're absolutely right, cheating is so wrong and it ruins potential opportunities for everyone. If everyone did it, there wouldn't be any opportunities anymore I don't think :( x x
