This morning, while cruising around my blog dashboard, the workplace behind the blog, I came across a place where I can view spam. When I clicked to go there, I found all these wonderful comments about my blogs that I didn’t know existed. I didn’t know how to release them so they could show up on my blog cite, so I skyped my blog-guru son, Chris. He spent a good half hour showing me how to check out comments, screen them and release them to go on the blog. Then we went to the page of comments that I had discovered. He looked them over and found one from his daughter, Tabitha. “This one is not spam,” he said. I knew that. He showed me how to unspam it and then release it to the blog. “The rest are spam,” he said. “Delete them all.”
“Oh, no!” I said. “Some of these are really good.” I read one of my favorites to him. “This guy really likes my blog,” I pointed out.
“It’s spam, Mom. Delete it.”
I told him that I had gone to visit a friend’s blog the other day and she wrote a blog that had a string of about six comments in response. “I wrote, too. We had this great conversation going on about God.”
“You aren’t that popular, yet, Mom,” he said.
“But it feels good to read these comments.”
“Read them, then hit ‘Delete all’.”
I did. To the sixteen spammers out there who responded to my blogs, thank you. But I guess you won’t be showing up on my blog any time soon. Not with Sheriff Chris keeping a watchful eye on my blog.
