As many of you know, every now and again I've brought up the subject of comparison and the trap we often find ourselves in as bloggers (found here and here). You've responded honestly and shared many an excellent tip...thank you for being so open! I know your words have helped me keep my thoughts in check and to keep things "real" around here. Funny though, trying to avoid the comparison trap is not something that's easily mastered; rather, it's a lesson that requires revisiting on a frequent basis. At least this has been my experience.
A great place to start is Melanie's recent post about blogger jealousy. I love not only what she had to say, but the reader responses to her dilemma (she threw the question out on Twitter this week and received some great feedback). I hope you'll take a moment to read them! Also, I'd love to know what else you'd like to add. What do you do when you find yourself jealous of other bloggers? How do you combat those less-than-lovely feelings and move your mind to a place that's content and at peace with itself?
