    Congratulations on your first hater Shelly! If you’re doing what you love, you’ve already made it. I rek we should all get into the habit of giving away free things. It is a beautiful gesture. I love the way it inspired you to write this positive post too. Way to stick it. 🙂🙏

    there is always a hater and I see it as a compliment of sorts, that they took the time and energy to complain to me, about me. something in them feels they are falling short

    I don’t have a problem with giveaway’s as long as you do it with love (i hope you understand what I mean), I don’t see the issue though..

    There’s nothing wrong with doing giveaways. Honestly some people just like to start things on twitter. Just keep doing you & keep blogging & vlogging. I love your videos so far!

    Honestly, some people have too much time on their hands and will complain about anything. I’ve always said you could give some people a million dollars and they’d complain that it wasn’t delivered on a silver platter. On the upside, at least you got their attention!

      Hahaha that’s the funniest saying but it’s sooooo true. Logic being, if you can afford to give a million bucks, just go the extra mile 😂
      But I hear you, I appreciate you and I will celebrate the win 💖

    It’s easy to say just ignore them, but none of us like to be judged. I know the standard advice is to not even pay haters the time of day. Authors are told the same thing. When people trash your book for the stupidest of reasons, (e.g. something like, “I don’t like books in this genre.” Um, well, how come you chose mine? Do people who hate sushi go to a sushi restaurant expecting to suddenly love it? Offering a gift card is hardly some crime—businesses do this all the time. Our financial advisors send us a gift certificate to a local restaurant each year.

      Lol I don’t like books in this genre 😂😂😂 I get your point, and you’re absolutely right. The thing that got me excited was that I’ve never been relevant enough for an online troll to even bother about my existence. Then to see how my friends had my back… that was golden! There is no way I wasn’t going to write about it 😂

    You handled it beautifully, Shelly. One of the things I despise about social media is the false courage people seem to grow behind a keyboard… I don’t see that hater’s point nor do I see why they were so up and arms in your business about how you wanted to conduct your own channel….. *am I missing something or are they a bit nuts??? lol
