Oh Martha Stewart!
Alright… enough with the Martha Hates Bloggers thing.
Well first of all… this should not be news… am i right. ( you knew this already)
I watched the interview… she TOTALLY has a point.
I’m Team Martha on this one.
watch the video here…before reading any further , she talks about blogger at the 1:44 mark —> http://www.bloomberg.com/video/martha-stewart-speaks-out-bloggers-are-not-experts-ERw6xWfeSCKd~bRGzSsHxQ.html
I NEVER ever ever try out any of those yummy shiny Pinterest food recipes because i DO NOT KNOW THE SOURCE! and that’s exactly what she is saying – she could have maybe said it in a gentler way..but whatever she’s Martha Stewart she did time in the clink ya know… she’s gangsta now!
Some bloggers don’t test the recipes at all and if they do they fudge the results for the better and all Martha Stewart is saying is that in an editorial mag or online mag or trusted blogger.. .you know what to expect because their team has tested the recipe. Also blogging can very easily be a popularity contest and if you play at it… then you win. and when you win, your opinion is gold for your followers… i get it Martha!
So please stop with the shock and gasp and all that.
I don’t read most of the blogging nonsense out there because all of a sudden everyone is an expert on everything. I mean you eat one tuna tartare and all of a sudden you have deemed yourself a foodie. You PIN a few home decor pins and have titled yourself a ” home decor expert”. I get it Martha!
and… if you watched more of the interview… Martha Stewart absolutely started the whole ” lifestyle” category!
I respect bloggers, I love the blogging community but like any job, career, community, idea, DIY.. whatever – you have to filter through and find the legit ones. That’s it.
I mean I was introduced to the Today Show’s Ann Curry as ” the mom expert” just a few months ago. What!
