So for those of you following along on the story of Blueroof Productions, you know that we have been growing a lot lately. As I mentioned last week we have started to get fans. And not just fans but vocal fans. Fans who talk about us and build us. Make us feel like we are special, like we are apart of something. It's something that is hard to put into words. Something that feels you with a high that is impossible to replicate.
Well what goes up must come down. Isn't that how the saying goes? When you get fans you must also get haters and trolls. Thus far in my career the only people telling me that I suck and can't do anything right were teachers. Go figure. Well yesterday you can add an old co-worker and somewhat friend by the name of Jason Koan to that list. He has always been a bitter guy who likes to tear others down whenever he can. That's just his nature. So yesterday he wrote on the link to our newest podcast that no one listens to our podcast. Any of them and that we are just wasting our time here at Blueroof Productions. Which we know isn't true. We have fans who quote at us lines from the podcast. If that isn't proof that people are listening than I don't know what is.
But I would be lying if it didn't get to me. I think part of me has always been afraid that I'm sending all of this out into the void and no one notices or cares at all the hard work we do here. Even now when I have random strangers telling me that isn't true. Showing me it isn't true those words still got to me. Still hit a cord.
I guess what I'm trying to say is that whenever you start making something from nothing and start to do good for yourself people will start to hate you. They will try to bring you down and take away any of the pride in your work that you have earned. They hate for no other reason than that they can't do what you are doing. They either don't have the talent or the drive. And it kills them that you do. Almost as if you working towards your goals is keeping them from doing the same. These people are trolls. Ugly little monsters that you can't fight with. You can't argue with. The best thing to do would be to cut them out of your life and move on. Because at the end of the day them hating you is them hating themselves. And when you are building your empire you don't need negative people bringing you low.
To all of our supports out there, I love you. Thank you all so much.
To all of our haters out there, I'm sorry you feel so hollow inside that you have to lash out.
