I have been posting a great deal of fiction during this ‘Virus Year’, as well as regular reports about the effects of Covid-19 in Beetley, and reblogging old posts for all the new followers.
So I thought I would go back to one of my favourite topics today, Blogging.
Regular readers will be clasping hands to foreheads, knowing that they are about to get a recap of my familiar moaning.
I say “Clasp away”, because that is exactly what is going to happen.
Remember when I said I would Spam anyone who left a link to their own blog as a supposed comment? Well it is still happening, and I am very happy to tell you that I have spammed no less than 22 bloggers who ignored my warning. Here it is again, in case you missed it.
A link to your own blog or blog post is NOT a comment, and never will be. If you do that on my blog, you WILL be Spammed!
What about the ‘Followers’ who do the same thing? They follow this blog, then immediately comment on any post by linking to their own.
Same deal! You WILL be Spammed!
Another pet hate. Inappropriate one or two-word comments on post that they obviously haven’t read. Case in point, a post about one person dying from Covid-19, and the terrible effect of that on his family and friends. The comment from some clown? ‘Nice Post’. (With a smiley face)
You guessed it. He was Spammed!
Another one? One of my best friends died of Covid-19 in May. I wrote a very sad post about his death, and how it had affected me.
The comment received? ‘Nice. Please check out my blog’.
Another twit Spammed!
Keep doing it, and I will keep Spamming you. Your choice.
