I had to share this blog from Kristen Lamb because I recently had my first negative comment. You didn’t see it because it wasn’t approved.
I understand that many of you who follow this blog are new, so if you’ve made one of these mistakes, you’re learning. We all oops (especially in the beginning), so don’t sweat it. Yet, I see these three behaviors far more often than I’d like. These three professional blunders can hang on like the smell of dead fish and stink up our author career, so avoid them at all cost.
You’ve been warned ;).
Never Be Nasty in a Blog Comment
I am fully aware that my blog can’t make everyone happy. I work my tail off to entertain and enlighten but I know I can’t be all things to all people. If I’m not your cup of tea, just click the unsubscribe button at the bottom of the e-mail WordPress sends you or e-mail me and I will happily assist you leaving (and cry later *sniffles*).
There is no need…

Most people have been extremely positive but I’ve had a couple negative comments, or at least comments which rubbed me the wrong way. I still approve them though – no matter what, there will be people who disagree with me or who don’t like me. But, if a comment was hateful or needlessly rude, I probably wouldn’t approve it either.
This went a little beyond being a negative comment. We have to accept that not everyone is going to agree with what we say or our treatment choices.
Great info– Thanks Kathryn!!! I have had some really really bad comments– & no they didn’t get posted– & they won’t either- 🙂 — I get on my soap box often on my blog as most of you well know– 🙂 & I say what I think– 🙂 if people don’t like it– I tell them to start their own blog– & say what the want & they can delete themselves from following or reading my blog any time they want & it won’t hurt my feelings at all!!!!! I also have several who read my blog– or they say they read my blog– not sure if they read it– from the questions they ask— BUT want help with their health problems over & over & over & over & over—- & don’t want to do anything to help them selves & or change their lifestyle & after awhile I am not into the poor poor me thing– & if they don’t want to try to help them selves– I no longer have time– as there are way tooooooooooooooo many who do want help– & I do have a life also!! 🙂 Lately I have had many new followers-&- who want me to repeat all the information to them again-in e-mails— instead of them reading my blog & finding the information them selves!!! Sorry Kathryn– I got on my soap box in your comment section!!! 🙂 hee hee I love your blog–& respect your knowledge– & experience– & feel totally blessed to know you!!!! Keep up the great work– & I can’t wait for your book to be published!!! 🙂 And you can censor my comments any time you want!!! 🙂 love ya!!! 🙂
LOL – I can’t wait either. My friend is back to working on finishing up my photos so hopefully things will get rolling again soon.
