So my wife also has her own blog. Paisley Penguin in case you don't subscribe to it or click on my link of other blogs.
On the 4th of July she is checking email and reading other peoples blogs and such. Well she starts looking over hers and was going to make a new post and notices that someone has left her a comment about one of her post.
It simply states "your blog is boring and uninteresting". How rude I think at first. Blogs are opinions or daily journals or a whatever you want to call it. It's a form of expression. A right that is guaranteed and protected by our constitution.
She deletes it since it makes no difference to her what one person thinks of her blog. Good for her I think. This is her place to put her thoughts down and be heard by more than just me.
I don't think it's boring at all. I live it. I can see where to the average outsider that it might be, but you don't have to read it. Find another website. It's just like finding a new channel to watch or a radio station to listen to.
Then I find myself thinking that this person doesn't have any imagination either. Boring and uninteresting. It's a redundant statement really. So clearly this person has no imagination and is not all that educated if they use redundancy and don't even have the balls to state why they don't like the blog.
My wife did the right thing by deleting this comment. It was negative and there was no support to back up the comment. She made little fuss about it and went on with her day. Good for her!!!
To all the blogers out there (myself included) this is your area to document the happenings in your life and talk about your interest, wishes and whatever else is on your mind. Don't let wankers like this person ruin your fun. They may just be jealous because they don't have anything to write about. Or they may just really be that much of an arse.
Why do I wait 3 days to say anything about this? Well time for one. I find that I just don't do these things in a timely manner. That and I have been thinking about it for the past 3 days and thought to myself in that time if I should write about it or not. It may not make a difference, but I feel a bit better just having gotten this out there and letting everyone know that you should think about the comments you leave for people. We are all watching and can see what you leave.
