    If someone blindly follows someone without the background check, then I’d blame it completely on the receiver’s side. Everyone’s life is in their control.
    You know people like to criticize others, but trust me if you are confident and believe in work and yourself, then you should just ignore move on. Blaming isn’t going to help you reclaim your life. If you plan something just do it, let it fail or gain, but just don’t get drowned by outside opinion, it is only going affect your life. Apply your thoughts not opinions.

    After reading the whole article, I must ask you a question. Are these your real life experiences? Because I see a lots of mismatch and emotion in this post.

    Hi Phil,

    Yes you are correct. But this post was not targeted towards experienced bloggers or anyone particular as they already know the bad side. I was thinking of writing it so as to make the new bloggers aware what goes on on the marketing part of a blog. I frequently see people sharing huge claims without any supporting proof, that would help them to bring fortunes in their life’s. The most new bloggers falls in the trap and gets misguided. Even I have been tempted and its natural to see the glitter in the first place.

    I have been frequently visiting the Marketing blogs and found that many of them were written to sell products without thinking about the benefit to the customers. Now the false claims are show cased in such a way that only experienced minds will be able to catch out the tricks.
