So, I read a mumsnet post in which parents where talking about how they just don’t get it. They don’t get parenting bloggers. That’s fine. But do you know what I don’t get? I don’t get how people think that just because they don’t get something, it means it’s crap and stupid. That’s what I don’t get. I don’t get why my other half loves cars and engineering so much. But you know what? I don’t disregard it as pointless. Instead I’ve tried to relish in what he loves and attempt to learn from it – which I have. Just because I don’t get it, doesn’t mean it’s something that should be disregarded. Okay. So you don’t get parenting blogging ? So freakin’ what. Let me talk a little about my personal job and hopefully you’ll come away having learnt something in the same way I like to learn about other people’s work.
I quit my job in January to ‘focus more time on Dear Little Daisy’. But to me, Dear Little Daisy is more than just a blog. For example if you look at my other website you’ll notice that it’s a shop. I studied photography at university and so I thought why not put everything I know to use now that I have the time to do so. So I have done. And so far, so good. I don’t tend to get annoyed by much ( I don’t think!) but this thread really irritated me. So what if you don’t get it. You don’t need to get it. Just like how Andrew doesn’t get that I want to paint a wall in the living room pink. He’s not wasting his time writing about it. I understand that everyone is entitled to their own opinions, but can we not just be better humans and support each other more.
So instead of spending time behind a keyboard trying to bring other people down, why not spend that time typing about something you enjoy. Something you love and relish in. Teach someone something, share something creative. Support each other. Life’s too short to be moaning about something you don’t understand. If it’s bothering you that much, try and understand it. If you still don’t get it – move on. If everyone got everything the world would be a pretty boring and dull place to be.
*Here’s a few cute photos of Daisy to turn this post around a little, haha*
