Whether you are starting our or a seasoned pro, dealing with negative comments as a blogger is never easy. Here are my thoughts on the subject.

What a great approach! Fabulous little video.
Fantastic video! Lady M I love your nail colour, what is it?
Great vlog! I found it runs very similar to when I was in Art school – many couldn’t differentiate between constructive criticism and personal attacks – in fact, 99% were the formal but were often misconstrued as the later. If you are not comfortable with being vulnerable, whether it be through your art or your writing, perhaps it’s not what you should be doing
Nuffnang Masterclass? I would definitely go but is it in Melbourne or in another city?
Can’t wait to hear about that!
Also, I agree with the comment advise you gave. Sometimes we just have to be more “thick-skinned” and accept certain comments that are negative but constructive and ignore the nasty rude one.
I like that you mentioned the personal responsibility of the blogger. As bloggers we really need to think about what your content is saying and how it may be interpreted. Starting out it is hard to grasp the immediacy and accessibility of the blogosphere. There is a conversation in the medium that doesn’t exist elsewhere and it can be quite confronting. Having said that, the sense of community that can evolve over time is well worth the fledgling hiccups. For the most part, negative comments don’t worry me, though I have deleted a couple of exceptionally personal and nasty comments. Mind you I’ve worked in mental health so it takes a lot to shock or worry me.
Hi Lady Melbourne
Wondering if you could send me info on the nuff nang blogging master class in July. I am a novice to the blogging world and would relish some advice. thanks
You make a good point about personal responsibilty. Thank you for sharing. Btw love your orange necklace and nails.
Thanks Phoebe, again … you’ve made my Frday! I now feel happy, I LOVE YOUR CURLY HAIR – WOW!!! I have straight hair too and HATE it but I wash my hair at night, french plait it and the next morning I do have lovely wavy hair, but only lots of hairspray will make it “stay” for up to 6 hours, looking fresh, not gluey.
But I feel a bit daggy going to bed with plaited hair like granny walton, so must give your new wand a try, in the morning and just got to bed without the granny hair! thanks again for making my Friday!
Have a great weekend, regards, Lisa
Love your top and hair. Great advice, and I agree that it is important to know the difference between constructive criticism & personal attacks. Taking the criticism and working with it is a great idea.
Sage advice and I love your curly hair xx
