My first year of blogging meant that whenever I was notified that someone had left a comment, I would be anxious and upset. I was fearful of reading how much I sucked and shouldn’t be writing. I had heard that enough in my real life that reading it from strangers would have hurt.
It doesn’t work that way. For every negative comment, I’ve had fifteen others that were positive. Just like my real life, one in fifteen hate me, it’s perfect!!
So now, I’ve stopped censoring my readers. When I started, I deleted a bunch of comments and I regret it. If you leave up the haters, your audience will jump in and fight for you. It’s really fun to see but I notice a lot of blogs have their comments moderated.
Chicken shits, the lot of you.
I’m mostly kidding, but if I’m reading a blog post and someone is ripping the writer a new asshole, I don’t want to be moderated. I want to jump in and defend, like many of my readers have done for me.
I am open for shit disturbing at 9 AM. I enjoy it, if you need me to help fight something, I’m in!! Some may say I’m pretty good at it too.
