The blogger you love to hate..
If you’re that blunt blogger, you’re the one that people come to a majority of the time when they want an honest opinion about something. Or…they choose not to read your blog because they don’t want the truth, or someone else’s opinion because it’s not theirs.
- They will tell you the truth – even it hurts…
I hold the truth to the highest standard. If there’s something I want my readers to hear, I’ll tell them. Just know that because I need to tell it, doesn’t mean it’s always what the reader wants to hear.
I don’t give a fuck what an author thinks about me.
Do they pay my bills?
If you are bringing nothing to my real life than you opinion is invalid. That’s not me being mean, that’s me speaking the truth.
Just because I didn’t like someones book has nothing to do with them. I’m sure they have feelings about it but they shouldn’t. I’m not paying their bills either so my thoughts should be invalid to them.
3. Being themselves is what they are good at.
I don’t know how to be anyone else and even if I did, I wouldn’t. I would rather a handful of people who read my blog and get me them a shit ton of people who don’t. I started this blog for myself as an outlet and to be about me. I’m not being selfish, I’m just keeping it real. I don’t want to look back five years from now and be like, “Who the fuck wrote that?” I want to look back and say, “Yeah, that was all me. I wrote that shit.”
4. Uncomfortable is not in their vocabulary.
Those little emails and messages about what a bitch I am don’t phase me. You can make that shit public if you want, I don’t care.
5. When they say they love something, they really do.
If I say I loved a book, I fucking loved it. Now, you might hate it and guess what?…I don’t give a fuck. I’m not going to try to convince you otherwise or think your a horrible person because you didn’t love a book that I fucking loved – I hope my readers feel the same way about me and if they don’t, stop reading my shit.
6. Success is on their minds 99% of the time
I don’t half-ass anything, including what I’m blogging about. If something needs to be said or done, I do it. If I screw up, there is no hesitation in an apology. When I say I want be a success, my version might look differently than yours. I want Pretty Mess Reading to be a success in the way of me having a place to have fun and talk about books.
7. Their observations can be witty and funny.
I’m funny as fuck. I fun as fuck. If you are out with me, trust, we are going to have a good time no matter what we are doing. We could be sitting on the floor watching a movie and not saying shit to each other and will still have fun.
Trust me when I tell you that the negative emails and remarks don’t affect me. I actually appreciate it. Sometimes it even helps me see things from a different perspective. I like that, it’s like we are having a dialogue vs. just my thoughts. It’s cool.
Now, being the blunt one is met with a lot of negative connotations. There is a difference between being honest and being rude, and sometimes people think the two are the same when they are not hearing what they want to hear.
If you read my blog, know that I’m blunt because I think you are tough enough, confident enough, and important enough to handle my words.
I really a sweetie who just speaks her mind and has no filter. Everybody needs that blunt friend/blogger!
