This is something I have been thinking about for awhile and has been on my mind lately. I would like to bring up BLOG BULLIES. Ya you know who you are the ones that go onto OTHER PEOPLES blogs and leave rude and nasty comments. Now this hasn't happened to me yet and I am sure it will sometime or another but I have noticed on other peoples blogs. What makes someone think that they can go on people's blogs and leave rude or unnecessary comments to a complete stranger about what they think this person should be thinking or feeling. HELLO this is that person's own right to put or write about whatever they want on their blog, if you don't like it then don't read it. It's because of people like this that some bloggers decide to go private. I personally don't want to go private, I am not a private person (about most things anyway) and don't care if complete strangers are reading my blog as long as it stays safe of course. I read other peoples blogs all the time that I don't know, I feel that blogging can be a positive and uplifting thing and I think that goes for most of us. I like the fact that I can see a different view of this world and a little into people lives to see what goes on around me, to get a different perspective about things, that there are other moms and women like me experiencing and going through the motions just like I am. I know of a few people's blogs that have opened up my eyes and have taught me so much, others that just make me laugh, and some that make me cry and realize that there is alot worse than just me not having a spotless house or a perfect hair day. My point is I would never go on any one's blog and leave some rude random comment (especially if it's a complete stranger) and give or put my two cents in, tell them how they should be, how they are feeling, and what there life is like. You think you know everything about some one's life just because they post stuff on a blog?? I know like some of you i do this blogging thing as a hobby, for fun, and the social aspects but mostly because I do most of it for journaling purposes. I do not type everything all out on my blog expecting everyone to read it, if they do great, but what I put is mostly for myself. Obviously most people are not putting every single thought and feeling they have on their blog and if you think because what they are blogging about is their life in a nut shell, that's crazy. So again if you don't like what people say or disagree then don't read it and move on. Also for those that leave the comment that is unnecessary and then have it be anonymous, well hey come on if you have the audacity to leave an unsolicited comment at least then don't be a coward. If you feel you have a right to leave that comment then you should also have to leave your name and own up to what you stated. One more thing on this subject I also know there is some blog out there that copies stuff from other people's blog basically just to make fun of them or the stuff they write or put on their blogs. These Blog Bullies (as I like to call them) obviously don't have anything going on in their lives, that they feel the need to take stuff from other peoples blogs and make fun of them! And to those blog bullies I say "GET A LIFE" because hey the rest of us already have one and that's the only reason you are able to post stuff on your mean blog. As for the rest of us keep blogging and posting because you never know the positive and inspiring affect a simple blog can have on other people's lives!!

That is very true. I believe that you can have a very positive affect on others lives. Today I met a second stranger who came up to me and said, YOU ARE MEG!! From Giggling with Meg.. I read your blog everyday!! I love it! (Of course they know a friend of mine and that is how they found my blog, but it makes me feel good!) Also, my best friend Holli's Sister (Jer's cousin) came back to the church through blogging. All of us family and friends were giving spiritual experiences in our blogs and she felt the need for a different life. So I say to blogger bullies.. you better stay away from me and my friends blogs or ELSE :)

I'm glad you did a post on this. Far too many people are going private b/c they feel that they have been violated by these "blog bullies". I just hope that one loser blog bully happens to read this and like you said...."GET A LIFE!!!"

Good post. You know I am one of those people who get the anonymous commenters on my blog. Some comments are a bit tacky and totally intrusive but I have to know that if I am going to be daring enough to talk about controversial issues i have to be prepared for argument. I just wish people would have the balls to leave their real name.

PS I wanted to write an anonymous comment and say you were mean and I disagreed with you just to be fun but your blog won't let me!! :)

Blogging is a journal for me and if someone were to take waht I have written and make fun of it, I wouldn't be very happy. I wish it were easier to go private but I don't know all of my friends e-mails and I don't want to leave anyone out. I love reading others blogs and seeing their outlook on life. Some aren't as possitive but that is OK because that is what they are feeling. I like to note the happy things in life. Sometimes I wish I could be a bit more personal in my blog but I don't want just anyone reading my personal feelings. That is the only down side to not being private. GOOD Talking Tuesday!
