Achieving more internet fame
Just when I thought I had reached peak notoriety the internet hits me with more exuberant comments.
I recently shared some financial tips on a popular internet forum. I simply espoused the benefits of an abundance mindset and to act on opportunities when they arise, among other suggestions.
The result? I got absolutely lambasted and condemned by almost everyone, lol.

Every few years I blog about mean comments I receive. The source this time comes from Reddit.
I’ve gathered some example comments below, to share what other people have been saying about me. Maybe we can learn something useful. Enjoy! 😀
Warning: profanity ahead.
Holy baked potatoes! I had no idea my writing was pro slavery. But I’m flattered that one person compared me to an Instagram life coach. 🙂 That’s a nice compliment.
At least this time nobody accused me of being overly leveraged, lol. These posts are always really fun to put together. And I know my readers enjoy reading them as well.
Thanks to all those redditors who took time out of their busy lives to give me critical feedback. They have taught me a very important life lesson: Do not give unsolicited advice, or face unbridled scrutiny.
I am grateful for all their opinions. It’s helpful to see things from a different perspective. A redditor in the comments above suggests using dollar cost average (DCA). I actually think that is a great approach. 🙂 One measure of intelligence is the ability to change. So I will reflect on all the comments above and try to improve my future financial decisions.
To be fair not all comments were salty. Some redditors agreed with my advice and supported me. 🙂
Unfortunately most comments like these were downvoted to oblivion becoming buried and hard to find. The internet can be a nasty place sometimes. But it’s also a place where you can learn a lot from people with different opinions. 🙂
