I got my first nasty comment

I guess I shouldn't be surprised. I've been blogging for almost three years now, and while I've gotten some comments from people who disagree with me, I've never gotten a comment that was straight up mean and nasty. Until last Thursday. Thursday I got a comment from this blog post I wrote back in May about things Drew does that bug me. Some of it was serious, some of it was stupid. 

I get it, I had a couple of spelling mistakes (ohmagosh!) and I criticized my husband... I guess I'm an idiot. I know it shouldn't bother me, and actually what he's criticizing me for doesn't bother me, what bothers me is the way he went about it. Like I'm some bored housewife that just likes to bash her husband.

Clearly he hasn't read other posts, because then he would see that most of the time I write about how great he is, how much I appreciate him. Clearly he missed the part where I wrote that if Drew were to compile a similar list of things that I do that annoy him, it would be ten times larger and the disclaimer at the end about I love him and think he's a great husband and father. Have some empathy because of all Drew goes through outside the home? Thanks, I do since I also go through a lot outside the home being that I also have a full time job. Self-centered? You bet. I blog. What blogger isn't a self-centered narcissistic? Why else would we put out lives out on the internet for others to read and comment on? Legitimate gripes? Um, it's stuff that bugs me, it doesn't have to be legitimate, it just bugs me. So, being the snarky idiot I am, this is the e-mail I sent back:

I know, I know. I should have been the bigger person and let it go... but let's be honest, that's not me. I guess I just don't get why he read it if it bothered him. I a blog's editing or content bugs you to the point where you feel the need to leave such nasty comments, try not reading. It's actually a rather simple concept. 


  1. Yikes, but you responded in such pleasant matter bravo :)

  2. Wow, people these days...You are right though. If they don't like what you are writing, then don't read it! =]

  3. People are idiots plain and simple. I haven't gotten anything rude on my blog yet but when I shared my Post Partum Depression story on Jezebel I got some really, really awful comments. Try and brush it off, that guy is just an insecure jerk.


The best part of blogging is hearing from my readers, so share your thoughts and ideas... or just say "hi"!
