Trolls under the bridge

I have seen on quite a few blogs over the past month quite a lot of trolls around. Not the kind we use to have as toys but  horrible, nasty internet trolls. People that anonymously hide behind made up profiles and leave horrible comments on blogs. Like, really horrible, personal comments. I have always known that girls can be mean. Heck, I am a girl. AND I went to Secondary School. So I fully know the reality of it. But why??

First was one I saw on The Barefoot Blonde blog. Amber from Barefoot Blonde runs a fashion


blog and somebody had created a GFC account in her name, linking to her blog and leaving comments on other fashion bloggers posts saying they looked fat and their outfits were disgusting etc. Why would somebody do this? Yes, Amber is a model with a fabulous figure and lovely locks and great style (basically I want to look like her), but is that justification enough to make her look bad and make it look like she is a horrible person? Luckily she has carried on blogging but it could really affect some people and they would stop doing it, even if it was a successful blog or not.

Another blog I follow, Chelsea Chapman, has had horrible comments anonymously written on her posts. Chelsea is also a fashion/ beauty blogger and she has had awful comments saying that she looks like a rat and saying that it doesn’t matter what she wears, she will still look disgusting. I ask again, why? I am pretty sure it is females doing this, to other females. Men wouldn’t care and are never as nasty with words. So women of they world, why, why why??

I am going to make sure that when I comment on blogs I keep being positive and hopefully uplifting so that other bloggers will want to carry on writing and posting their individual posts. Who is with me?

One of the things I really like about blogging is that they are all different. And that is because WE are all different. That’s a good thing by the way! Don’t be afraid to wear the outfits you want to wear, write the posts you want to post or share the photos you want to share.

Whoever these trolls are, they are obviously afraid to be who they are.

  • Hey! Do you use Twitter? I'd like to follow you if that would be okay. I'm absolutely enjoying your blog and look forward to new blog: moving company jobs

  • How horrible! Think I will stick with my parenting blogging then and not dip my toes into the murky waters of fashion blogging (although I do a little bit for my 7 year old daughter’s clothes). I get an awful lot of nonsensical comments in very poor English, but that is spam pure and simple – it’s not targeted to upset anyone. Like you, I believe in positive comments. If you don’t agree with a view or aren’t inspired by a post, don’t comment! Found you through Tots100 Willy Nilly.
