Do you ever see those “super annoying” posts from your friends in your newsfeed all “Buy this, buy that!”, “Check this out!”, “Look how awesome I’m being by doing this!”?? Can you believe that they have the nerve to interrupt literally [maybe] a single minute of our day to try and promote something they enjoy??
How dare they.
As you may have noticed as of late, I am also one of those people. You know why? Because support is free. Because I enjoy supporting people doing things they love. I enjoy supporting the people who have the ability (and sometimes it takes courage) to be consistent about it. We don’t take joy in feeling like we are being “those people“. We are just here to share our hobbies/jobs/sources of income in hopes that we will get support from our family and friends. If you’re not about it, scroll by, move along. There’s no need to be rude, or laugh, or make snide remarks at us/them. (On the other hand, I know there are some consistently pushy, send invites to your inbox, texting, calling, messaging, kind of people, just ignore them or kindly say “No thanks, I’m not interested”.) If they ask you for their support, and you don’t want to, just say I’d rather keep my [insert social platform here], free of ‘advertisement’ but if there’s another way I can help, let me know.”, leave the group, or turn off notifications for said person.
I’m not here to shame those who don’t enjoy seeing things they aren’t necessarily thrilled about in their feeds. I’m just saying the mockery isn’t necessary.
If you can’t say anything nice- don’t say nothin’ at all.
I appreciate the support you all have shown me! Whether it is from sharing, to following or subscribing, or simply just visiting my page when I post. So thank you, thank you, thank you, for your support! NOW onto other things…
