Blog-land Spirit of Elitism

It is amazing that when you roam the "blogging world" that you see people adopt beliefs, ideas or opinions of others as their own.  If one person says it is ok to do this or that - next thing you know, other bloggers are joining in, even though they had to push against their own consciences.  They make something "ok", simply because someone else is doing it or says it is ok.

I think this is where I differ from the majority of women in blog-land.  I've refused invitations, advertising and allowing my writings to be used in other blogs because I couldn't support the belief system with which they upheld.  I guess it boils down to this - I can't be BOUGHT!

You don't see advertisements and money-making gimmicks on my blog because I'm not here for what I can get out of it.....financially speaking.  I'm not here to change my values, beliefs and "go with the flow" and become part of the elite in blog-land.  I'm not even here to be the best among them, to have the most readers, or any other pursuits of the flesh.  I'm here to serve - God and others.

A lot of women have gone from serving their home and family and helping others online with their blogs - to forsaking their home and family to make money or become "famous" in the internet realm.  Instead of brain-storming for ways to better run our homes and curb spending for the home, it becomes a game of who can save the most or who can show off the most.

The spirit of elitism has taken ahold of so many and the greed and love of money overpowered so many women that they lost the vision.  They constantly pat themselves on the back for raising money to help their husband, when the Bible clearly tells us that the man is the provider.  You want to really help him?  How about getting off the computer and getting off your rear and making him something homemade everday!?  How about, instead of refusing him because you have another blog post to make or another advertiser's review to post - you turn the computer off and give due benevolence?  Put down the coupons women and play with your children!!!!

Have we lost sight of what is really important?  I'm tired of hearing other women brag about the money they are making as if they are doing more for their husband than I am.  When in reality, it's the other way around!  God set it up for the woman to care for the home and the husband to provide.  When you try and do your job and your husband's job - it may "seem" at the time that you are helping but sooner or later - your bag will have holes.

My hope is to persuade women everywhere to put priorities in their proper order - God, Family, Others.  Don't let riches tempt you to give your valuable time to another endeavor other than the one God has given you to take care of.
