It's really hard to talk about the nice things you have on here!

I love talking about all the places I travel and all the new stuff I buy because i do travel and shop a lot. However, if I post something about this then people get all upset and say I'm bragging or "must be nice" or I'm a snob! I hate it. I used to have a blog where I could post pictures of everything but I had to shut that down for my safety reasons...anyways does anyone else feel like this? It's rather annoying!

  • I don't have the money to travel or shop, but I don't resent those that do. I would rather hear about all the good things happening to people than hearing nothing but bad things.

  • Sometimes. It doesn't sound like we're as well off as you are but we live comfortably and sometimes I feel guilty when I say certain things when it pertains to the way we live or what we have or something.

    I must admit sometimes I jokingly say, "Must be nice," in regards to something said but it's not said bitterly. Just more like a "sounds like fun, wish I could do it" kind of way and I add another comment so the poster knows I don't mean anything mean by it.

  • I'm with Firepony. It's much more fun to share in someone's pleasure than complain about their choices. That, and you know, next time.... Take me with you!!!!

  • You should have a blog and post there so the people like myself who are interested or would love to look at those things will be able to but then all the people who throw a fit about the things you do or have wont have to see it to b*tch! =D

  • Well you see the problem with a blog, I used to have one and people began stealing pictures and using them as their own so no more posting pics for me.

  • You could put watermarks on the blog pictures. :)

  • What does that do?

  • Watermarking puts something on your picture (like maybe your website name) so others know where it came from, and therefore know they stole it from somewhere else if someone else uses it.

    I was looking for a watermarked example for you and kind of found a quick blog about it (in relation to photos being taken) :
