Supporting My Divas: Getting Back on Track

Lately, I've been saddened by the lack of respect other bloggers have for each other. I have also been plagued with a sense of underlying competition in the blogging community. I feel like there are people that will only support people on their blog rolls only if they are a lesser blog or in no way similar to their blogs. That is wrong, and I can say that there is no criterion for support on my blog. I have the longest blog roll around. I try to keep anyone who is updating regularly on my list. I haven’t been as adamant about that lately, but that is because I allowed myself to get a tad lazy with all the drama surrounding my life. But that is going to change. Starting today, I will do my best to keep up with the “Supporting My Divas” posts and trying to juggle the links on my blog roll monthly. What I found is that when I do for others, I in turn get more support because I’m not being a selfish blogger. And I feel better when the comments I get are not for me, but for someone else who is lessor known or just maybe needs their day made. I don’t know if that makes sense, or maybe I am still being selfish because I actually get happy vibes from helping someone else. But if I am selfish and my selfishness helps someone else… then I will continue to be selfish…

Now on to the blogs…

Dacia of Vu la-la is a new find but is not a new blog. She has been around quite some time and has a serious amount of followers, but that isn’t what made me follow her. When I found her… I saw that she does makeup and she does fashion. Now you can understand why that would appeal to me as she is focusing on the same things that that I do. I love all things shoes and clothing… but makeup I found is my creative outlet. I feel that Dacia has found that same passion for makeup. I think if you stop by this fabulous Latina’s site… you will become a quick fan.

ThickChic is a blog I found because she commented on another person’s blog. I found I like her as well… who knew there were so many bloggers who were sooooo good at makeup and fashion. So far it appears she just keeps you posted on her “hauls” and her after makeup looks. I would love to see some OOTD by this fabulous blogger. It appears she currently has 2 jobs and doesn’t have the time to steadily update her blog, but I know when she does have more time… the result of her blog will be amazing… follow her… so you know when she updates… no matter how infrequent it is *smiles*

Miss Moore only has ONE follower… WTF?!!! That must be rectified… NOW!!! I think that if she had more followers… she would update her blog, Fab and Fluffy, more frequently. I know for a fact that she is following quite a few blogs and maybe needs to know that someone other than this diva is giving a darn about what she has to say. I see great potential here people. Do you remember when no one was following your blog? Do remember how great it felt to see those numbers grow…. Shouldn’t Miss Moore have that same feeling? Come on… I have great faith in my readers… let’s see how powerful we can be with the power of our clicks. Follow Follow Follow!!!

Magda has a blog that I have been following for quite some time. It’s called Fashion Doesn’t Know Size, and I don’t understand one word that she says on her site. But the language of fashion is universal. So I follow to see her outfits… and I use Google translator to see her point. I think there is a bit of slang being used as not all words translate over… but I get the gist. I like what I see and for that…she deserves to get some more followers. I know that you will like what you see if you take a few moments to scope out what she is trying to put out there…

Carissa is the genius behind The Green Eyed Lady and I am impressed. I actually just found this blog today. And I felt it appealed to me in such a way that she had to be included today. I like her fashion… and I feel like when I was working, it was similar to what I would wear. But I especially like the way she incorporates her life into her blog. She has what it takes to make this blog and I want to be able to say that I had some part of getting her there… so… followers… get to following!!! You don’t want to say you don’t know who she is when her blog is famous and EVERYONE knows who she is… do you? *winks*

I hope you understand that my wanting to support these ladies above is out of the need to grow this blogging community and to hopefully make it tighter. I feel that something has been lost in translation along the way. I really don’t want to see anymore separatism within the plus-size or “regular” size blogging community. We all have something to say… and we are all going to put our own special spin on it… so isn’t there enough room for all of use to get some love?

Feel free to email me with other bloggers you want to show some love...
