I haven’t blogged for a while. Partly because as most of you will know life as a new mum is just a tad busy, and partly because I seem to have attracted some unwanted comments lately.
The strange thing is these comments are on posts that are more than a year or two old. I haven’t published any of them, which actually goes against how I believe you should deal with it. In the past I have published negative comments and then responded. But to be honest right about now I just feel like I couldn’t be bothered.
I couldn’t be bothered to respond to someone who thinks I should dump my husband because he ‘showed his true colours’ by initially saying no to having a dog. (All his concerns were quite valid actually, but don’t tell him I said that!!) And I couldn’t be bothered to respond to someone calling me an idiot and a jealous bitch over a post that was written in good fun and filled with sarcasm.
I understand that not everyone has the same sense of humour and may not appreciate sarcasm, but if you don’t like it then feel free to read something else. I’ve read often on other people’s blogs about why they blog. Most say for themselves, others say they like to know people out there are reading what they write. Effectively they’re comment whores! Oh look there’s that sarcasm again.
Blogging for me is theraputic. It’s a great way to vent. Sometimes people can relate and sometimes they don’t and that’s fine. But last time I checked your own personal blog is for writing words of your choosing.
I’m feeling a bit deflated at the moment about the whole blogasphere. Clearly I took an extra dose of sensitivity this morning, or maybe I’m just confusing it with lack of sleep!
I’m sure I’ll be back soon enough, sarcasm and all.
