Just who are those bloggers anyway?
Mothers documenting life’s little moments. Twenty-somethings trying to figure things out. Comedians.
Cooks. Illustrators. Designers. Fashionistas. Trend-setters. Product promoters.
Martha Stewart, you effed up big time and you know it.
“Who are these bloggers? They’re not trained editors at Vogue magazine. There are bloggers writing recipes that aren’t tested that aren’t necessarily very good, or are copies of what really good editors have created and done. Bloggers create a kind of a popularity but they are not the experts. We have to understand that.”
Do you feel threatened by these so-called “bloggers who don’t know anything?” Ree “the Pioneer Woman” is not a trained editor at Vogue, yet she has a T.V. show that started from a bitty little blog.
This video isn’t the first time you’ve disappointed me. Recently you were on the Bethenny show. Bethenny is a self-made multi-millionaire (hello, Skinnygirl Margaritas!) whom you were rude to on your apprentice show AND on her talk show. On that segment, when she asked why you did not choose her as your apprentice, you told her that she wasn’t “likeable.” You claimed she was “outspoken” and “a brat.” Well, isn’t that embarrassing given your recent pompous remarks?
Have you ever looked at someone who points fingers? The pointer finger points at the person. Three others point at the accuser.
Anyone who goes on a rant like yours usually speaks out of jealousy or fear. These “non-experts” gained attention without your input. Now, thanks to your word vomit, they will continue to gain even more attention.
No, I may not be an expert. Most of my cooking adventures in the kitchen are utter failures. No, I can’t flambé anything, and if I tried the only thing flambéed would be the house. My meat dishes often leave something to be desired.
I don’t come to this space pretending to be an expert. Here I am with all my flaws–take it or leave it. If I make a tutorial, I do not make it with the intent of sounding like an expert; I do so to help others, not line my pockets.
I was going to buy one of your home-office organizers for my kitchen. Thank you for saving me the trouble. I’ll gladly skip your aisles in Staples, Michael’s and Walmart and any other retailers who think YOU are an expert.
Like this blogger said, becoming irrelevant must suck, Martha.
