Well Martha, I think you may have lost a lot of blogging followers with this one statement you made during an interview.
"Bloggers are not experts"
Watch this and give me your opinion....
When I first watched this I thought...she is right, most bloggers aren't experts.
But did any of us say we were?
If you look in my profile I state "I'm a Jill of all trades, expert in None"
But most of us blog because we enjoy it.
We love to share our passion for whichever craft we do, let it be cooking, crafting, organizing...the list goes on.
You don't need to be an expert to have talent.
I also noticed that the people she said that have great taste are big businesses.
People who have buyers, testers, photographers,creative departments and the list goes on.
We bloggers have ourselves, and I think we come up with a few of our own pretty awesome ideas.
Of course we don't expect Martha to do it on her own, she has a huge company with many different lines, she needs help and ideas from others.
Also when she had said that bloggers recipes aren't very good, how does she know this?
Blogger's recipes aren't tested???? I think many husbands and families can disagree with you there Martha, lol.
Lastly when she stated that bloggers use others ideas.
I have to wonder how many of her creative staff have searched fellow blogs for ideas. Bet they never gave credit to the originator.
That is one peeve I do have about fellow bloggers and You-tubers....give credit to the originator, not the last person you saw create something, but the first person who made it.
I am still a lover of a lot of her products and watching this interview has not changed my mind.
Am I insulted or offended by her interview...not in the least ;)
Everyone has an opinion and this is hers.
But I have to wonder....if Martha Stewart started her business now.....would she be a blogger ;)
I hope you all had a very creative Thursday :)
