Negative comments are the subject of this week’s Book Blogger Hop. The BBH happens weekly, but I usually do the last Monday of the month.
Maybe it’s a sign that I don’t have that many engaged readers, or that you lovely people normally say you disagree with me in a very agreeable way, but I don’t recall getting what I would consider negative comments on the blog.
I do recall getting the odd comment that shows the person disagrees with my post, or holds different values, but that’s fine by me. It would be a shame if we all had the same views about everything. Just because I don’t want people to disagree with me, doesn’t mean that I don’t mind a little healthy difference of opinion.
I do draw the line, though, and that’s where attacks on personal beliefs are concerned. I rarely express them on the blog, but I think in today’s world we will end up becoming increasingly polarised. And each person needs to stand up for what they think is right, and believe in the values they have. Just don’t use my blog for what I consider to be reprehensible or offensive views.
I have a policy on comments (in the policies section): I reserve the right to edit or delete negative comments, or anything that appears to be too controversial for my blog. And swearwords!
It’s not too late to sign up for the book blast for Willoughby the Narrator‘s launch on April 27th. Click the link at the side for details.
