So, I put myself out on the line…. well the blogosphere really.
Within minutes, my email was flooded with comments and likes. This is incredible; what a great way to share with everyone. But I had to go to work, so I didn’t get a chance to read them.
When I came back to the thread, I saw that my post had been deleted.
Even though I am a brand new blogger, have never posted on a thread like that, and I posted my first blog, my piece was 10 days too old to be displayed. Really? Isn’t the point of this thread, for new bloggers to share their work and get feedback? Rules are rules, I guess.
Oh, but the rejection, it really cuts deep….
Nah, it’s ok, I have never been one to fit perfectly inside the box anyways.
So, “what are you going to do about it?”, I asked myself.
Da Ta! Weekend Rejection Blog.
If you have been deleted, rejected, shot down this week, etc, please share your story with me. Add a link in the comment section below. I want to read it!
Just because someone else doesn’t see the value in your art, doesn’t mean there aren’t a million other people who want to roll around in your words.
(That last comment might be a little misleading, because there certainly are not a million followers on this site who are going to see your comment. I’m still a new blogger, after all.)
So please, share your story with me and we can cry and whine and laugh together.
