Got drama?

Got milk drama?

When I first started to blog, it was, to brag about the neat things I won. Then I was informed because I was a dummy and thought these ladies was actually paying for these things I won that as a blogger you could do product reviews. I never realize that met the company would send you the product for free and you would give your honest opinion on the product.

With having said this, I have noticed a lot of drama about many issues. I will try to address the issues I have been noticing without coming off as being a bitch rude.

First, I would like to start by saying just because, one receive an item free of charge, does not mean they actually receive the item for free. When it comes to reviewing a product it takes time, and we all know time is not free. To get a good review one needs to test the product for a certain period. After this, they will write up a review. In this review, one would list the good and the bad of the said product. Now we have to remember not one product it made the same. Yes, they go through the same process to make, but all parts are technically different. Therefore, a product that I loved and worked great for me might not be great for you. It is possible the said product had a defect. So let us all stop assuming it just makes you look like an ass that since the blogger did not pay for said product, that it reflected his or her opinion, because bottom line a review is someone’s opinion.

Another thing I have noticed via social networks is all the hate. Twitter, has moms bashing moms, sisters attacking sisters, gossip groups posting about celebs, etc. FaceBook, not sure what they have. I do not get on there much. MySpace, has high school girls bullying other high school girls. Mom groups have moms talking about this person and that person. Good gosh, can’t we all grow up already.

What happened to the days when everyone was happy for one another? Now all we hear is how this person is making this much from doing this and this person is only making this much. Does it really matter how much this or that person is making? I really do not get it all. We preach on a daily basis well I do to our children, about NOT being hateful and NOT judging. Lately, that is all I have seen is hatefulness and judgmental remarks. How do we as parents tell our children not to judge and not to be negative when we are doing just that? A bit hypercritical don’t you think.

I will not bore you all any longer, but I think everyone really needs to look at the bigger picture of this whole mess. We need to see how childish all this looks and focus on that one thing we, as MOMS are good at, and that is being a mommy. We as WOMEN just like dooce said on Dr. Phil “should pull together and support each other. NOT pull each other down.

We are our child’s first teacher.

This is solely my opinion on what I have observed via social media networks. I do not claim to be an expert. I am only a mom who blogs about the joys of being just that a mom and a wife. If anything in this post is offensive I apologize not two people are the same. My view on offensive I am sure is different then other people’s view.
