Share a Tip: Do You Get Jealous Of Other Mom Bloggers?
January 17, 2009 by Kelly
I received a very compelling email today and I’m going to use it as our next ‘Tip’ gathering opportunity.
Our reader, who wishes to remain anonymous, asks this:
“Kelly, I was listening to this week’s episode of Profitable Mommy Blogging and while I really enjoyed the content, I was actually left feeling sort of down. It’s obvious that the mom you interviewed is a really successful mom blogger. I see mom bloggers like her who reach thousands of readers every day and I get more than a little jealous. I know that’s dumb but I can’t help it. I feel like I work so hard and see little results. How do I get past the jealousy? It almost makes me want to quit.”
She’s referring to my interview with Jennifer James of Mom Bloggers Club. Jennifer is a successful mom blogger and I think a lot of other mom bloggers are looking up to her so I totally understand.
Admiring someone and aspiring to their level of success is great. I think it’s easy to slip past that into a touch of jealousy – but it sounds like this reader realizes that she’s got a serious bite from the green eyed monster.
Do you have some advice for her?
If you have experienced blogger jealousy, how did you deal with it?
We’ll keep the post open for tips and advice until Monday at midnight.
