After feeling the pain that my dear sister in islam(author of ‘journey into the unknown’) had been experiencing lately I decided to write a few words of encouragement for the authors and a few words of advice for the readers at the same time….
Firstly writing a fictional blog is no easy task what so ever….we as authors have lives to lead…some of us have kids,husbands, homes,jobs and many other responsibilities to see to on a daily basis….
Most of us have taken to writing as a hobby….to those of you who understand what a hobby is, you will surely understand that all your time is not given towards your hobby..rather abit of your free time is given to it…and when responsibilities are to be fulfilled…then responsibilities are obviously given priority over a hobby….
We write because we enjoy to….these sites are free, we’re not paying to use them and readers are not paying to visit them….(Unless you have data plans)….
So I just cannot understand the fact of people constantly complaining of either someones writing style, grammar, punctuality of posts or even wanting to take it a step further and publish a book….
My sentiments are that if you don’t like a certain blog for whatever reason it is, kindly unfollow and don’t ever visit the site again…don’t put people down for what they work so hard towards….
For example ‘surviving life’ was also one of the best…and she clearly mentioned in the very beginning of her blog that it has been her dream to publish this book but was not given the opportunity…so when Allah finally gave her the opportunity people had a heart attack about it…
Guji girl was the first, relatable was another amazing one…..but due to their own personal responsibilities, they cannot post as often as they used to…and now its become such a problem…..
I think all authors deserve a major pat on the back for taking the initiative and giving us so much to read, enjoy and learn from….
If it wasn’t for all the amazing blogs out there, I would never have the courage to start my own blog…and after I’ve been put down and totally been treated unfairly about my ntentions of my previous blog, I would never have the courage to pick myself up once again and start something new…
As writers we need to remind ourselves everyday, that we don’t live for anyone….we don’t do anything to please insaan…we do it to please our creator..everything we write, even if its fictional or entertaining…should please Allah and have some kind of meaning or lesson to it…
If anyone feels like they don’t want to read a blog due to some reason known only to them…its entirely their business…and for every one person that unfollows….there’s a hundred more that will follow…..
The same goes for rich girlz closet….they tried so hard to bring out the realities of life…..the things they mention in their blog really happens, but people are too blind to realise it…..we live with our eyes closed and only see what we wish to….
So to the authors once again……don’t give up..and write whatever your heart wishes to…
To the readers…enjoy what you’re getting and let the authors know how much you really appreciate their time….
Without authors there will be no blogs…and without readers too there will also be no blogs….
So we all can work hand in hand and enjoy every moment of it all…..
