How to Deal with Hate Mail

I've been very fortunate because I've never received hate mail on my blog. But I know that many of you have. I think we all agree that it's hard to understand why someone you don't know would say mean things to you. But it happens.
Now there's a new way to deal with hate mail. The best way, I think! Spotlight the nasty, share it with other bloggers and let us help to reinforce you. (And you might possibly have a chance to laugh at the nay-sayers.)

This is a new blog called My Favorite Hate Mail: Where Mean Comments Go To Die. It was started a short time ago by Mandi from Vintage Revivals and Vivian from The V Spot.

  • . If you've had enough of the nasties out there;

  • If you feel that everyone is entitled to their own personal style

  • If you feel that we're entitled to our own opinion (as long as it doesn't hurt others);

  • And if you need a healthy way to bury the vicious barbs of negative bloggers
then I'd encourage you to not just check out this new blog but to follow them and give them the nods up!

There's just enough negative in the world already!

I just looked at that blog today! I just recently got my first two hate comments. One was from someone who didn't have a blog or an email attached to their sign-on and the other was a spam email. On the spam one I was just getting ready to click on their "blog" and realized that it was a link to herbal supplements! In both instances I would have just sent them an email explaining what my blog is about and thank them for their comment (kill them with kindness).

I've truly never had any nasty comments. I have had people think it cruel to do away with harmful destructive animals we run into livin' the farm life. As a farm chick ya learn ya just have to bite the bullet and do it sometimes.

God bless ya sweetie and have a great day.

I was so happy to see ya entered my Easter Giveaway! :o)

I approve my comments and the reason I do that is my husband and I have been verbally attacked on a social network site and it would not be stretching it for those folks to move to my blog. Life is far to short to deal with that ugliness. I have had a sort of negative comment but I laughed about it and the reader was joking...he is British and has this wonderful dry humor. I will check out these blogs. ♥O

just remember what our mothers taught us "if you don't have anything nice to say...." Hard to believe people would criticize 'free' stuff - don't like it don't read it - geesh! thanks for your blog and your blog kindness! Nancy LeB in B'water

That's funny. I really haven't had any hateful things on my blog...a couple of strange spam things, but that's it so far!
