Someone who knows nothing of me had quite a nasty go at me this morning on my About Mumma page. I haven’t yet approved the comment and she has since come back a number of hours after leaving their first comment to say they knew I wouldn’t and it just proves the fibre I’m made of.
Blogging friends, do I respond? Do I just ignore it and delete? Or do I take the person to task point by point?
These were going to be my Wordless Wednesday photos today. How incredibly appropriate, although I’m posting a little later than usual. Bella loves her mumma. The feeling is entirely mutual.
Thank heavens for the love unconditional I receive from family, friends and fuzzy loves.

She is a bully. She doesn’t know you and you shouldn’t have to justify your actions and the decisions you have made in your life. You are an incredibly talented, beautiful woman. I have known you for years – and it’s the last four years of your life that I am most proud of. You are an inspiration to many. You give others hope. You share your heart and soul every day of your life – all whilst being the best mummy that you can be. Hold your head high and smile. Thank heavens you are not like her. x
Ignore them. Don’t approve the comment. If that person said whatever to your face, would you consider the source (meaning don’t get into a pissing contest with crazies) and just walk away? If so, then do the same online.
Of course, just my opinion. BTW, I have lurked on your blog for ages and never commented. But the lack of civility that is often seen online — probably due to anonymous nature of online comments — really irritates me. Oh yeah, I know my comment is somewhat anonymous as we don’t know each other, but you know what I mean.
Carry on mumma!!
It sounds like a troll looking for some attention? If so just ignore it.
However if you think it is a legitimate comment, PLEASE approve it and let us reply.
Delete, delete,delete. You are only encouraging her to write more. Delete and do not let her cross your mind again! A comment that upsets you on your own sith
I can’t believe anyone would have anything nasty to say about you (or to you), I have been reading your blog for a very long time and I think you are an amazing mum and someone to look up to.
I would not approve the persons comment whatever they have said is not worth acknowledging and you will probably find their negatively comes from their own jealousy or insecurity.
Chin up, there is always someone trying to get attention the wrong way. Ignore and don’t respond.
Also if you can ban them from being able to read your blog.
Help I think that person has taken over your site and posted my comment too soon! 🙂 I was about to write “A comment that upsets you on your own site is one which I would not leave up, as they are only written by people who are looking for attention” Phew got it right the second time.
I don’t know you, you’re a friend of a mutual friend, but I have read every post and everyday I look forward to my daily dose! I have a son a few months older than your love bug and so much of what you write hits home (the good & the bad). There have been days that your blog has changed my day for the better. I think you are an absolutely amazing Mum and person and extremely brave to have done what you have done & then share it so honestly.
No! Don’t approve it and don’t answer. Delete the comment immediately. As curious as I am to read it, that comment is a little drop of poison. I don’t like poison dripping into a warm place filled with LOTS of unconditional love.
I had the same happen on my blog. I ignored it. It’s MY blog. A place for ME to find some sanity. Not a place for me to be bullied. I get a message every few days or so, but I continue not approving them and just ignoring them. Eventually the person messaging you will get bored of it if you keep ignoring them and not give them the attention they are seeking.
Some people have nothing better to do that try to put other people down! Ignore, delete and move on. Maybe spare a second to feel pity for them 😉
I am sorry to hear that you were upset by a comment. Never let hurtful things cling to you. Let them slide off and disappear xx.
