I remember grateful bloggers. Said folks find a home in my heart.
Ingrates? Not so much. I believe bloggers lacking gratitude are awesome bloggers and fine folks. But I release them fast because lacking gratitude is fear, and fear repels me. Example; a few minutes ago I experienced a lack of gratitude from a rocking blogger. The case: similar to other bloggers who lack gratitude. I chose to complete their text interview instead of turning them down, as I turn down hundreds of bloggers because *I AM A BUSY BLOGGER* who is *SHORT ON TIME*.
Of course, when you are in your own head and stuck on yourself, you care less when a busy as hell, established, pro blogger tells you *he has only 5 minutes* to complete the questions and return. Some bloggers wake up, see their selfish ways and express gratitude. Other bloggers weigh themselves down so heavily with fear that they say they are disappointed in my short replies. Some fine but a bit of….well….an ungrateful blogger told me they felt disappointed in my replies, and to set aside time, to take my time, and to write longer replies. Compassionately, the blogger is so lost in their head that they completely lack gratitude for me setting aside 5 precious minutes from my busy schedule, to write and email responses. I could have ignored her interview request like I ignore hundreds of interview requests. But I did not. She could choose to be grateful to get any response from me but decides instead to lack gratitude, and to greedily ask for more of my time.
Unfortunately, bloggers have only one chance to impress me or to become forgettable. Nothing personal. I think this blogger is awesome in her own regard. But I move forward to find grateful matches because time is precious and I only go to where I am loved and appreciated. Do you know who appreciates me? Vishwajeet Kumar. He opened the cyber door for me and gave me the keys to his blog. I guest post on his rocking blog daily. Dude has ONLY been grateful. So I keep going back to him. We need to go where we are loved, and appreciated, to accelerate our blogging success.
If you go back to where you are not appreciated, your blogging growth begins to rot. Why? Where your attention and energy goes, grows. Again; this is no rant post. But any blogger who does not appreciate my kindness simply vanishes from my consciousness. I move on to grateful, loving bloggers who appreciate me, and who I appreciate. One hand washes the other.
Do you want to succeed online? Humble yourself, get out of your own brain box and take an attitude of gratitude. I feel grateful for all support, time, attention and energy I have received from the top bloggers in the world. Pros have been good to me. I know how busy these folks are. Easily, they ignore hundreds of requests daily. Answering my emails with 1 word or noting me on their blog or retweeting my blog post? Hey; they did not need to do that. These are busy guys and gals! I maintain this attitude of gratitude and all keeps expanding with my blog because where your attention and energy goes, grows.
Be grateful for established, pro bloggers who gave you even 5 seconds of time. Pros owe you nothing. Pros ignore most pitches. Appreciate pros – and thank them – and that they took time out of their buy schedule to help you. Lose the attitude of entitlement. Never, ever demand a busy pro blogger set aside more time to help you or to answer your questions. Greediness is piggishness. People feel repelled by greed because fear turns off humans. Do you know what attracts success to you? Being grateful. Blogging from an energy of love. Be that person. Succeed.
Develop an attitude of gratitude to move higher in blogging circles.
