i got two spam comments tonight.
i followed one to his website and wish i didn’t.
this seems timely after my last post about wanting to put a bubble around my kids.
and i will remain in prayer for the lives i witnessed on his blog. dear god.
even if those comments were random, it is no longer worth it to me to be out in the open.
so, i am in the process of making my blog password protected.
part of what i love about this blogland is connecting with people i wouldn’t otherwise, finding kindred spirits, feeling surrounded by others who i have never met, nurturing relationships with those i know, satisfying a creative hunt, finding hope in what others offer. i am not ready to lose that, but i am ready to bring the fence a little closer in.
what this means is that i have a username/password for anyone who wants to access this blog (well, unless you make my stomach hurt).
just leave me a comment and i will pass that info back to you.
EDITED: let me clarify that there was no mean comment left…it was a fairly vague comment about “cute babies.” i think i would have let it go except that i followed one comment to his blog.
so i don’t feel scared. i don’t think we are being targeted, i simply don’t want to be a prop.
plus, in case i wanted a little more nudging, this morning i found three comments on my last post with some guy leaving me his phone numbers. i’m not going to call.
