I have never been a fan of Martha Stewart.
It has nothing to do with her criminal record, something about her just always bugged me.
Today she actually earned my disrespect.
With obvious disdain in her voice she asks “who are these bloggers?”
It starts at 1:44 in the video when the interviewer asks Martha if social media is “in poor taste?”
Apparently bloggers are not experts because we aren’t formally trained editors.
Apparently someone who has children cannot possibly have learned anything about parenting without schooling. Someone who has spent years cooking cannot possibly be considered an expert without formal education. Someone who has learned to sew or craft and has created great new, creative things is not an expert without a degree from the Martha Stewart school of trained pretentious wax figures.
Hey I’ve been eating since the day I was born. There is a slight chance I might know what tastes good and what doesn’t.
Obviously not everyone who blogs is an expert, but that does not mean we aren’t providing credible and useful advice or information that the average person can relate to.
She talked about bloggers being “popular” as if that is a negative thing. And also implies something about blog readers with this statement as well.
Maybe she is just jealous…
I wonder how her magazine sales are doing?
