I know I'm not a typical fashion-blogger so I can't universalize my experiences. There's something I'd like to check with you guys on.
Have you ever been ignored by another blogger? Turned down in a bid for friendship?
That positive response lulled me into a belief that everyone would be nice to me. But... they aren't. Some bloggers ignore me despite my eager efforts to befriend them. I don't push strangers into becoming my friend because I know you can't force a friendship and I don't want to be pushy.
On the other hand, I will be patient and hang around to see if someone changes their mind. One person, who ignored me for months, later became one of my closest friends. She explains she was initially apprehensive about who I am. She later lowered her castle-gate when she became comfortable after seeing me on her friends' blogs.
What I'm curious about is your online-experience -- are you ever ignored by other bloggers? Do you ever find yourself rebuffed by someone you'd like to know as a friend? If so, how do you handle the rejection?
What's your emotional reaction to rejection?
