I get about 20-30 spam comments per day.
Here are some examples.
I know Christian Louboutin would NOT send spam comments to me.
I checked their homepage.
This shows it’s no news to them -
they have a warning on their homepage…
It looks like Mike knows me.
But hey, he thinks I’m a man!!! oh men…
And Anna or Beth, I’ve had enough of your spam comments, thank you very much!
Do you get a lot of spam comments?
Last week I wrote an article why Blogger bloggers are so stubborn?
and I got quite a few comments.
Some of them said that it’s pointless to leave a comment to say for example
“Have a great weekend!” etc.
I THOUGHT that it’s a nice way to leave a blogger (who I know) a greeting, so she/he knows I’ve visited – rather than say nothing.
Now I don’t know what to do.
I read an article here how NOT to leave comments.
I noticed that my way of commenting is totally out of date.
It was ‘a rule’ some time ago to say “stopping by from xxx” and now it’s a no-no.
We all knew ‘we belong to the same community’ but that’s not ‘in’ anymore.
I didn’t know that’s a no-no.
Now I do.
I need to improve my skills to say something relevant
I thought every blogger would be happy to get comments,
even if it’s just greetings
(when you ‘know’ the blogger it should be enough interaction if the post is too long to read at that time etc.)
if you play a meme just to say ‘meme greetings’ without deeper messege
IF you don’t have anything to say about the actual post
BUT you want to say something because you play the same game.
How wrong I was.
From now on I stop saying nonsense. If I don’t have anything to say about the post
I shut up.
ps. I didn’t realize early enough that SILENCE is common way to say
‘I’m not interested’ or ‘I don’t need this kind of comments’…
It took a while but I’ll learn!
I’m sorry if my comments have been ‘empty’…

tips for commenting
No Money can buy a true Comment
How about you – does it matter what kind of comments you get?
ps. we all know how stupid “I’m here and now I follow you – please follow me back!” comments are.
I follow those who I WANT to follow.
The same with giveaways. You can’t buy my love with giveaways.
ps.ps. Thanks to all those Blogger bloggers who’ve changed their comment settings to Name/URL option!
Leaving a comment is much more easier now!
