It probably comes as no surprise to readers that this blog is growing. As of today, we're on target to exceed 62,000 visitors for the month. Ain't it cool?
That said, it should also come as no surprise that we've picked up a troll or two along the way. I'm specifically addressing Becky.
We deleted a snark from Becky last night, and she just graced us with another, even nastier snark because we didn't post her first one. Needless to say this most recent comment won't see the light of day either. I don't like feeding trolls.
Trolls always seem surprised that this blog reflects our values, namely conservative Christian homeschoolers and homesteaders. Uh, hello? What else did you expect?
I think it should be obvious by now that I welcome dissenting opinions as long as they're politely expressed. We have a reader in England who routinely disagrees with stuff I post, but she's not rude, crude, vulgar, or disgusting in her disagreements. Therefore I welcome her snarks.
But Becky and some other trolls are different. Nasty name-calling of this caliber isn't the kind of stuff I want my kids to read. And make no mistake, my kids read the blog.
Just as a reminder, this is a private blog. We control the content just as we moderate the comments that get posted. Trolls can post all the ugly revolting snarks they want, but they shouldn't be surprised when those comments get deleted.
To all my faithful polite readers: Thank you for coming. You mean the world to me. To all my trolls: If you want to get nasty, go start your own blog.
