Haters & their comments

Typically, it's not in my best of interest to address these types of things, but I feel spontaneous and bored enough today to feel the need to blog about it.

A few months ago, I started getting these hate comments left behind on my blog. Mind you, i never published them, and there is no need to explain why. But after reading those comments, i was actually shocked.

First of all, I didn't think much people actually read my blog - let alone take the time to leave a hate comment.

Second of all, the comments were addressing my personal life posts. So I probably know the kid behind that "anoyomous" comment.

Third of all, I never thought I was the type to have a hater. LOL. I always thought of myself as a neutral person that everyone was okay with. I mean i don't expect to be adored, but I never thought i'd ever be associated with hate. But then again, no one likes to think that they are hated.

But anyways, i won't say what the comment actually was. But i would say that it's not as bad as some of the harsh comments that are left on some makeup guru's youtube videos. What i just don't understand is, why do people even bother to leave comments like that. Does it make them feel better? Or are they just bored and have nothing better to do?

Things like this just makes bloggers like myself, refrain from blogging. I'm a personal person as it is, so i don't blog much about my life. However, I do like to share some of it once in a while, since I can only take so much of makeup posts (they take too much work as well!). But be assured, i won't let a little comment like that stop me from being me, and doing what I like to do.

I guess that's all for my little rant. I'm sure i'm not the only one here that has experienced this. How did you guys deal with it?

P.S I had an epic March, so i'm quite glad that things are starting get better now. I hope to get back to blogging soon

You would be shocked at some of the comments left on my blog. Yesterday, a fellow blogger asked me what I hated about blogging if anything. My answer was I hate how much time I spend moderating dumb, useless, hateful comments. One reader was inspired so much by my makeup collection to leave a post telling me that I was a disease, a menace to society and that my collection is what’s wrong with America because it represents American greed. Some people would have gotten upset at that comment but, I start laughing every time I think about it. I don’t know why I find that so funny but, I do. I really believe that they leave these types of comments as an attempt to control you. If they can upset you enough, then maybe you will stop blogging.
How I deal with it is to read it and sometimes get a good laugh out of it before I delete it. Then there are comments that are so off the wall, they force me to look over my shoulder because there is a crazy person running around and they know the address of my blog. Bottom line; read it , delete it, and forget it and never address them on your blog because they will just continue if you do.

I have yet (and fingers crosses, will never have to) deal with rude comments. I can't believe people said all those nasty things to you Vixxan. I think some people just enjoy being mean. They're so in love with themselves and think that they're so much better than anyone that they say rude things. But we all know that it's the most insecure people who are obsessed with themselves. So I would just brush off those comments (although it's hard) and remember the sweet comments people have left you! : )

Oh, and i came to your blog because the picture of the penguin/bird (whatever it is) was adorable! I actually thought you were going to talk about this animal. lol

i guess we all have to deal with haters at one time or another. my view is that they are people who have no life and hate so much because they have so many issues on their own. i mean why even bother to hate when there are just so many things that one ought to do in life hahaha! xD don't feel bad just ignore them. they actually like you because they're concerned about you and what you do. the only problem is that they haven't realized how much they like you yet.

cheers! <3 said...

it's the internet, dont get upset. people who can hide their faces will say all the random things they want. Sometimes girls get death stared by other girls on the bus for absolutely no reason. I've gotten hate comments because I mentioned a blogger that this person hated, so she decided to "let me know" how much she hated that blogger and hated me doing this person a favour. I shouldn't help her because she's an arrogant b****, it's pathetic that I'm doing this, etc.

Simply put yes, it is out of jealousy that leads them to say such things. Dont even let it bother you for a second~

I wouldn't bother my pretty little brain over such comments. Unless you said something wrong to incur any valid remarks, that's another story.

People can say the meanest things on the Internet, simply press DELETE and move on.

What I do is read it once, think about whether or not there is any truth to it, and decide how to proceed from there. If there is truth to it, then I make changes as needed. However, that's relatively rare, and generally constructive criticism isn't nasty.

If it's just some jerk being nasty, I laugh it off and delete it, because I know it's obviously jealousy or low self-esteem that prompts people to be like that. It's kinda hard sometimes, but try to keep in mind the happier comments, and ignore the nasties.

I'm lucky enough not to have had a hate comment yet...although I do get hit with tons and oodles of spam. I never understand it. Why is it so ok to hate over the internet behind an anonymous username? Just ignore them. Haters gonna hate! btw I really like that picture.

Unknown said...

just don't mind him/her. he doesn't know what he's doing. hehe. Btw, nice blog. Definitely going to follow you! :D

Some people are just mean. Most likely they're jealous, find you a threat, or have personal issues with themselves and find the need to pull you down with them. Try not to let people like that get to you <3

And I hope you come back soon, it's been a couple of months now :)
