I am Not Very Happy...........

In fact I am quite ANGRY!

I posted my first post on 31st December 2007 I was so proud of my first post!  I wasn't sure if I would keep on blogging but I have and feel so pleased with myself!  NOW I am quite Cross!  I have never had any nasty comments, and I certainly wouldn't leave any on any ones blog, but I have discovered I have two followers that I really do not want to associate myself with, and someone has also infiltrated my followers list.  I have carefully looked through the list and clicked the stop following button on who I thought it was, but this particular blog has turned up twice since (this blog doesn't seem to have any followers and I don't want to leave a comment  or send a email asking them to go away as I don't want to get into a conversation with them).  All this has happened since blogger went wrong in the summer, when I completely lost my blog for about a fortnight.   

I have been thinking of changing the name of my blog which means I am going to have to start from scratch, I don't really want to do that, or just change the name of my blog and hope these two do not notice.  Some people say it can be unlucky to change the name of something, but I think I am may to have to.  I am still happy to leave blog open to everyone, and I will not be moderating the comments (I can't at the moment it affects my husbands email address for some reason!).

I will give it till the end of the year and see what happens...................


  1. oh no thats awful you think its a hacker? x

  2. ...p.s really enjoy your posts- sorry ive been abit pants at commenting lately xx

  3. Hi Julie, I'm sorry to hear this. I've recently had to block a follower (some sexy Thai model, apparently). I wish I could offer some advice. xx

  4. Such a pain! I am sick of inflated stats too when my stats go right up over night with some silly 'just for gags'type of website. Make sure you never click on these! x

  5. Oh poor you. Really hope you get it all sorted out soon.
    Big hugs,
    A x

  6. Oh Juile, im really sorry to hear your cross and its understandable to. Im not really sure about blogger and how to change anything or even stop those others from leaving comments you don't want them to. So i can't offer any techno good advice. Just sit tight for now as you say and hopefully things will come right in the end. How did you get on in Taunton on saturday? If i hadn't have been busy i would have mentioned to meet up. But def next year. Sending you a hug, dee xxxx

  7. There was an article on Radio 4 about this sort of thing the other day. It seems anonymity gives some folk the freedom to be odious. It is their down-fall, not yours.

    Apparently, many of the truly awful things were aimed at women and the general consensus was they are best ignored. They are posted by people with massive chips on their shoulders who feed off of your reaction. The woman conducting a poll found those who answered only received more of the same. It is what they want.

  8. What a shame Julie. Please don't close down . I enjoy my daily visit even if I don't comment every day.We get a bit lazy with commenting don't we and it can take a lot of time too.

  9. Came to your blog via hen and her necklace post - so sorry to hear of your nasty followers - some people just need to get out more and get a life. Don't let them get you down!

  10. Sorry to hear that Julie, hasn't this person got anything better to do?? Don't leave :) x

  11. Oh poor you ... that's horrible. I've had two spam comments on my last post this morning - one about websites and another something to do with airplanes. I've just deleted them but it's worrying that they are getting through. M x

  12. I read your comment on Vintage Jane and came along for a look!
    I now have to moderate all my comments after some annonymous idiot left a comment some time ago - to do this go into blogger dashboard 'settings' then 'comments' and enable moderation on all comments.
    I've also removed a follower who I wasn't happy with, again go to the dashboard, click on your followers to view them, click the follower in question and there is an option is to Block them.
    Hope this helps.
    Best wishes for a stress free blog!
    Rose H

  13. I've had a couple of followers that you really don't want following you, I have blocked them but I thought it was just happening to me. Hope you have got this sorted.

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!


Please leave a comment. I love reading them and I read every single one!
