Here's a brand new blog Trail Of Hearts I'm promoting as part of my Sunshine of the Mind philosophy. I think the Etsy oriented blogs who rely on bitch, fuck and it's many forms to form a sentence have jumped the proverbial hand felted shark.
I'm tired of reading about who sucks, or why I suck or who sucked for not agreeing I sucked when someone who sucked said it. And so on. I'm bored to tears reading about how fucking fuck fuckery bitch fuck Etsy whatever is just saying what no one else will.
And I'm grateful that's true. Because of more people relied on nastiness to gain an audience then it truly would be a tedious, downtrodden, backbiting place to be.
A little snark is fun, wit is to be celebrated. Berating, I'm thinking not so much. It takes no talent, it holds no interest. It brings no light into the mind. I know Etsy is far, far from perfect, I know people can suck it like a Dyson on overdrive.
I'm simply not interested in celebrating those who revel in it and vomit forth bile and consider it entertainment. You aren't stupid, I'm not stupid, just seems like there's an awful lot of good fight to fight out there right now. Denigrating is not fighting the good fight. It's just a paragraph of cheap shots.
Changes nothing. People get so mired in morbid self satisfaction it becomes paralytic. Self fulfilling. Speak up when there's a problem, sure. Personalise it, not so much.
The people I care for and respect want to solve problems. Not bash in the figurative heads of those who have them.
