Firstly, this is the first post I’ve written since buying my domain so hello everyone to the lifewithktkinnes.com site! Oh that felt so good to type without having to put the .wordpress.com …


After purchasing my domain, I decided to have a look through my spam comments – there’s nearly always one advertising ‘free animal sex pics’ that I giggle at before deleting permanently – just to clarify, I giggle at the comment, not the actual animal sex pics cos that would just be weird.  Anyway, back to the story. So, I was clicking through things, slowly making my way to those spam comments we all know and love all so much of when I spotted a different one to usual. Some person was just scrolling through my blog, leaving practically the exact same comment on each post. Now, I’m used to taking those spam comments with a pinch of salt but this one made me stop.



At first, I laughed it off. Then I saw it appearing more and more on each of my posts from May. Now forgive me but I have a kind of rule – only insult me if you can do it intelligently. Or, if you’d like to say something rude/mean about me or my writing, come say it to me directly in an email. Yeah, okay, I’m still figuring things out on my blog and so I don’t have a ‘contact me’ page (yet) but I have all my details on my About page, and I frequently list my Twitter and Snapchat usernames so people can talk to me there. Of course, I tweeted about the above comment. After seeing it so many times, I did tear up a little.


We all have days when we write and post without fully liking what we’ve shared. There are times when we mess up and make mistakes. I may have been ‘a little bit out of track’, and I’m sorry you felt that way, but I was just back from spending 3 days in Paris and Disneyland so I was exhausted and the main aim of that post was to share our pictures. Actually both of those comments were on the Disneyland post.


So basically, in the wise words of Thumper – ‘If you can’t say something nice, don’t say nothing at all.’

    Congratulations for your new domain! I wonder if the spammer doing it deliberately or its just a bot of some sort. Anyway, all the best on your blog!
