Doing A Little Blog Housekeeping (AKA-Editing)

Tonight I removed two blogs I had recently written from my other site "Eyeballs". I had included links to a quite interesting blog that for some reason, wants me to remain anonymous whenever I leave comments on his/her blog. I said no. I have a rule when commenting on blogs. I always use my real name. You can click my name if I leave a comment on your blog and it will take you back to either Eyeballs or Papertango-depending on the connection to your blog content. There is also a link to either/or on my sidebar. I removed the clickable link for the site in mention from my sidebar on PaperTango. I had not talked of this site in any way here on PaperTango to date.

I do not leave nasty, troll-like postings on any blog. I know there are lots out there who do and it makes me spit! If I have something to say and don't want anyone to know who I am, there are anonymous blogs out there that allow you to do that. If you go to the sidebar, there is a "bitch" logo. Click that and email the proprietor (it's not me) and ask to be added or just leave a complaint/response/drunken diatribe on any post listed. That is just one of many such blogs out there that allow this.

Again, if I visit your blog and have a comment, a snort, or even a giggle-I will always use my real name with a link to one of my blogs. If I don't feel comfortable having that link, I won't post anything and just close the page. I hope you will offer me the same consideration.

ETA:I am posting this blog to both Eyeballs and Papertango.

    Hi Jan, haven't popped in for a bit, hope you are doing okay. How's the break from cardmaking going?

    Take care


  2. How odd. Why would they want you to be anonymous? People are so weird.

  3. I like to visit people's blogs that leave comments, how can you with anonymous...very interesting.

  4. I agree with you Jan. However, I do know sometimes the people that leave me "anonymous" comments are ones who don't have a blog or a google account. But usually they still sign their name so I know who they are. I do monitor all comments but have never had any problems. I'm sorry if you have.


  5. So far, I've only heard people that WANT to know of who is leaving comments, never about wanting their visitors to be annon. So strange. Yea, and most of the time when people are annon on my blog they leave me nasty notes as if they are going to "irk" me.... LOL!!! I just laugh it off..... got no time to be wondering who it is.

    Annon... LOL!!!

  6. I've had a few anonymous...fortunately, they've been kind. . .:) I've always wondered about the anonymous. . .I always think they're people I know and don't want me to know who they are but why not?


  7. I think that if people can't say something nice in a comment, they shouldn't say anything at all.

    Happy blogoversary!



Thank you for stopping by and sitting a spell with me and mine. I hope you take away a smile!
