So I met someone on twitter recently, who had been having trouble with people mocking her about her blog, and since I've experienced this as a blogger, and I'm sure lots of teenagers have/are/or will experience this, so I thought I'd give you my story of sorts, and what I did about it!!
So some of my followers might realise that I started my blog almost 7-8 months now! I know, feels like yesterday, but anyway. I was quite open about it, so as soon as I started a swarm of bloggers were born in my year, about 5 to be precise, and we all loved being bloggers! But a lot of them were getting grief, it was a shame because they were rising bloggers, and I loved talking about it with them, it made me gain a lot of new friends. But then there was someone who followed my account on twitter from my school and started reading my blog. Then they watched my movies, and before I knew it, I was being swarmed by a lot of people asking me why I put myself on here, and making fun of the things I wrote, even my twitter username! But you know what? I got past that, and to this day I'm the only blogger left because everyone else was bullied out of blogging. I don't want to see this happen to any of my twitter teenage blogger & you tuber friends, and I thought it would be good to give you tips on how to ignore, or avoid being mocked.
- If you're not entirely sure if you want to start a you tube account, wait a couple years till people in your year have matured, and if you still are unsure of it, maybe create a different account for your videos, make them private, and when you're ready, put one on at a time!
- If you are experiencing people who are mocking you, act as if you don't care, don't take it down or make sure that only your followers can see it, act as if you don't care, and eventually they will go away and find someone else to bother, surely their will be the occasional joke, making fun of what you've written, but if you just stick at that act, even though it will hurt, and trust me it might, they WILL eventually go away.
- Also, if they do something mega offensive, just walk away, it might be hard at first, but just.walk.away. they will give up!
Thanks for reading, and I hope this has helped YOU if you're going through a rough patch x
