No, I don’t dislike people who try to glorify themselves. I actually think it’s a great way to get your name out there and to be seen as a credible source of information. After all, if you’re good at what you do, why not show off a little bit?
I also think it’s important to remember that nobody is perfect – even the best (and most celebrated) writers have made mistakes in the past. So, while it’s nice to see someone achieving success after years of hard work, it’s also important to acknowledge the sacrifices that they’ve made – both on an individual and professional level.
