Freelance Writers, Webmasters: Why some are Hateful

Over the past few months, I have noticed more and more freelance writers and webmasters taking shots at one another. Generally speaking, I notice this in two places.

First off, I usually get a couple of emails per week from fellow freelance writers or webmasters who do not like me for one reason or the next. Some of the mail is downright funny, but other times, there are accusations and threats that are out of this world. Obviously, there is no place for this in the freelance writing world; or any other industry for that matter. From all of these emails, I have come to the conclusion that most of these people are simply jealous.

Moving on, if you check out forums such as Digital Point, you will notice the same thing. There are a lot of members who do nothing more than lurk around the forums waiting to shoot down other people, as well as their ideas and dreams. Once again, it is only a small group of people who act like this, but all in all, it can be annoying to say the least. It is people like this who scare away those who have legitimate questions and concerns.

Personally, I feel that the best way to deal with people like this is to simply ignore them. When I get an email stating that my freelance writing income is nothing special, there is no point in writing back. Simply put, I run my career the way that I best see fit, and use this blog as a way to help others.

It always amazes me that some people feel better by tearing others down. If you are being targeted by these jealous types, make sure that you do not get down on yourself. Instead, laugh it off and move on. You are not going to better your career by dealing with people like this!
