I have been very lucky and have never received hateful comments on my blog. But others have not been so lucky, it's hard to believe that some people think they have the right to inflict pain on the writer of a blog. I read blogs for the fun of it, sometimes I disagree with what the blogger has said, but that's ok, it's their blog, not mine.
In the past Froogs at Frugal in Cornwall almost gave up blogging because of comments left at her blog and that would have been horrible. She's a wonderful blogger and inspiration to many of us. But someone wanted to tear her down, thankfully she decided to keep on blogging. Now she's up for a blogging award, fingers crossed.
Today it's Silver Sewer who has decided to quit blogging because of negative comments. It's not right, those of us who enjoy her writing will miss it very much. If you don't like what someone is blogging about, don't visit that blog, go away, far, far away.
To those of you who have thought about quitting blogging because of negative comments, remember that if you quit you've given way too much power to people who don't deserve it. Blog on!
