Now on to what I had originally planned to say....
A few of you may not be aware of some of the negativity that exists in cyperspace. I have been quietly watching youtube beauty videos and reading beauty blogs, for about a year now. What has surprised me the most is some of the rude and hateful comments coming from a few people. It is shocking to me that someone would take the time, effort and energy to try and hurt someone, let alone someone they don’t even know. My mother always taught me that if you don’t have something nice to say, then don’t say anything at all. I guess these people weren’t as fortunate to have someone teach them that life lesson.
I have a read & watched a few responses to these ‘haters’, that were thoughtful and well done. I’ve decided that instead of giving any more attention to the negativity, I’m going to come at it a bit differently.
I thought I would periodically post some blogger love. This is basically going to be shout-outs to other bloggers or youtube beauty gurus or both, that I enjoy reading or watching. I have seen a lot of people in this beauty community support each other and I think if more of us did that, we’d eventually drown out the negativity. So on that note….
One of the very first beauty videos I watched was by my first shout-out. I was searching for a youtube video on using rollers in my hair and found her by accident. I immediately loved her enthusiasm and energy and thought she seemed genuinely interested in passing along her knowledge to others. I ended up spending a lot of time watching as many of her videos as I could. She is a professional tv broadcaster, which is apparent when you watch her. She has a way of giving you a lot of information, always in a friendly and informative way, never condescending. Because of her I discovered some new things that I now love, and a whole new appreciation for drugstore products. The idea of my blog is that you don’t always have to have the most expensive products to get the best results and she is all about that, which is so refreshing. She is encouraging and supportive to others who are doing their own blogs or videos, and has a facebook page where she allows people to share their ideas and support each other. She is truly now one of my favorites and I look forward to watching her every chance I get.
Beauty shout-out goes to ………
