If you’re a long time blogger, you’ve been there before. You post a piece and someone doesn’t agree with you, and in turn your statistics go BANANAS because that one person has shared your piece in their vehement disagreement. I am there now, and I am personally loving the boost in stats to my site. So really, I am truly thankful for my haters, as we should all be when they help advertise our work they disagree with-because that rakes in the numbers.
The piece in question was one I wrote well over a year ago regarding losing a friend during one of the most difficult times in my life. Click here to read the post. To summarize, my first pregnancy was a hard one. From a very early point I knew the baby growing inside me was ill, and a lot of my time and happiness dissipated because of that. My true friends stuck around for me, understanding that I was dealing with a very emotional situation, while other friends ran for the hills when I could not give them any time at all. So this post is really about losing a “friend” because they couldn’t deal with the fact that I had bigger, much more important things going on in my life at the time.
And these haters who are posting comments on that blog piece? I’m not approving their comments because half of them don’t make sense, and most of the people posting do not know how to spell. We live in a free world, with free speech-but I do not accept readership from internet trolls regardless of the insane boost in my numbers.
Call me all the names in the book you want, I’ve been called them all before. Disagree with me all you want, my point is still valid for other people who can relate. I only write to those who take a vested interest in grown up conversations. You don’t have to agree with me on everything, but you do need your grown-up underpants on if you want to elicit any sort of response from me.
And to my loyal readers, a much bigger THANK YOU goes out to you! I know that I have not been posting much, but when I do have the time- I try.
Have you ever dealt with a Hater? Regardless of if you’re a blogger or not, I’m pretty sure most everyone has. How did you deal with your anti-fan, so to speak?
