I’ve had a few people complain that I wasn’t approving their comments in a timely fashion. I agree with them.
Do I feel bad about it? Not really.
For the people that truly enjoy my content and follow my life, they know that my sister had a baby in early December. They know that the baby was in the NICU for 10 days. They know that I spent a lot of time there helping her out, all while still keeping up with my VLOGMAS commitment. They also know that just before Christmas, my dog had to be rushed to the emergency vet and was diagnosed with cancer (lymphoma). They know how much my life changed in just those 12 hours.
They also know that I’ve started a new job, on top of everything else I’m doing. They know that I’ve committed to daily vlogging in 2017. They may not have ever vlogged before, but they can understand that it’s time-consuming and they appreciate the dedication.
No, I’m not “ignoring” you. No, I’m not just choosing not to approve your comments.
I’m just focused on not drowning. Not drowning in debt from my dog’s treatments, not drowning in work, not drowning when it comes to keeping my life in order.
I’m writing this to remind you guys that there is a person, a human being on the other side of this screen. Someone who hurts, who cries, who laughs and smiles, just as you do. I’m not a robot. My life gets difficult too.
If you want to help, consider donating to Hugo’s GoFundMe. If not, then at the very least take a pause before coming at me for not approving your comments quickly enough.
For those of you that support me and care about me, thank you so much.
