Idiotic sp*mmers never give up, do they?

One of the irritating things about trying to publish a blog regularly is that you have to put up with all sorts of idiotic sp*mmers. I use the “*” instead of the letter “a,” because I fear using the word might draw some more of it my way via the mysteries of search engines.

I had a plugin installed on this WordPress blog which dealt quickly and silently with all the sp*m comments that come my way so they never saw the light of day and I never had to look at them. Unfortunately, I had to disable that plugin. It’s caused a bit more hassle, but I can get by all right.

In a perfect world, of course, I would never have comments or links or any other content on my blog unless it was something I wrote, I approved, or at least I invited. After all, if I want to put a link on my blog to a useful blog about making money, or about something like Panama City beach rental properties, or about anything else under the sun, that’s my decision as owner of this operation.

If you blog, you absolutely know what I’m talking about here. Does it get as irritating to you as it does to me? I ask because I’ve actually gone to blogs that are chocked full of comment sp*m, and whoever’s running the blog really doesn’t seem to care.

If you’re a blogger and if you have a great solution to stopping sp*m in its tracks, leave a comment and share your secrets with the rest of us, will you? Thanks.

My remarks about blogging today may sound a little like the old line, “Just fake it ’til you get it right” — but that’s not really what I mean when I suggest your passion for a subject should overrule your lack of knowledge when it comes to blogging. After all, very few bloggers (myself included) […]

Recycling blog posts? Yeah, I sort of am …

… and it’s worth a little explanation of how and what I’m doing with older posts, for those of you out there who blog. I’m using a plugin called the ADPS Reposter WordPress plugin. The purpose of the plugin is to sort of “recycle” older blog posts to bring them back toward the “front” of […]

Exciting to see many writing, publishing options available online

Back in those stirring days of yesteryear, opportunities for a writer to be published were much slimmer than they are today. It’s exciting to see how many types of writing and publishing are going on these days. You aren’t limited now to magazines, newspapers, book publishers, and various theater/film/television venues. There are a wealth of […]
