I must have done something evil to someone because I am noticing a negative energy that is hovering over me. I can’t even pin point where it is coming from but I think that I have an idea.
A lot of you have been visiting my site. For some, it may be your first time while other frequent my site on a daily basis. Lately I notice my stats have definitely picking up over the last couple of months and I am SO grateful for that.
Not to mention the relationships and opportunities that have become available to me. When ever I am in public, I actually have people, who come up to me and tell me how much they love my site! I am constantly getting a heap of emails and package from readers and fans of the site.
I swear I am not being narcissistic as I do have a point in saying all of this. I work VERY hard! Sometimes I go without eating and sleeping, sometimes getting sick to the core. This industry can be hard to dealÂ . There seems to be this rapid epidemic of ‘crab mentality’ among us bloggers of color.Not all of us are this way, but a lot of us are.
I remember when I decided to shift gears with the blog, I reached out to similar blogs. Not be messy and name names, they ALL threw shade at me. One even accused me of trying bite off his blog.
Even tonight, what was supposed to be a good gesture to my fellow bloggers turned into one questioning what I meant by being in good company with the likes of him. A couple of months ago another blogger reach out to me via YIM and I reminded him howÂ he really hurt my feelings when I reached out to him and he stop responding. He claimed he didn’t even remember (it was three years prior).
This is a disturbing trend that I notice among my peers. Again..not all of them were like that. It’s sad that in the adult industry, there are only so many gay studios that caters to performers of color. There are even less bloggers out there and this is how we act!?
I don’t care about awards and accolades. My readers are my validation and I love what I do! I know what that shit feels like to have your favorite blogger shade the fuck out of you simply because you are reaching out for advice. Â I promise myself that I would NEVER do that to other up and coming bloggers. I won’t tell you ALL my secrets but if I can help, I am there for you. That’s how it should be.
I know this issue is bigger then the blogger world but that is what it is like, hence why I don’t socialize with other bloggers like that.EVERYTHING that is The Luckey Star, I built from the ground up. I had to learn it on my own because there weren’t anyone out there who helped me. Â Even as of know I am a one man machine!
This is a rant so I don’t expect too many people to even read this or understand but those who do, PLEASE don’t be like the people I describe above. You will not get far with that type of mentality.
And to those who were offended..
