i guess it comes with the territory. blogging isn't a private thing. you write something & THE WHOLE WORLD can see it, not just your "friends." you want people to read your blog, but you can't control who those people are. and sometimes people "follow" you....sometimes i don't like to be followed!!!! especially by strangers that i don't know!!!!
that's what's happening to me right now. there are some people - i've checked my "audience list" - in other countries who are reading my blog! at 1st i was like "wow! people in RUSSIA & & canada & china & switzerland & italy & PAKISTAN & bunches of other countries......are reading MY blog!!!" "wow, i'm famous!!"
then i started getting STRANGE comments from some middle eastern men & one of them "followed" me & his picture is in my "followers" thingy on the side of my blog.
and you know what????? IT CREEPED ME OUT!!!!!!!
not only does it CREEP me out, but i can't block him/them.
but i did turn on "comment moderation" so now everytime someone comments, the comment won't be posted til i approve it.
and i prayed.
i prayed that God would protect me, my family & friends & my computer from any harm these "strange followers" might try to do. MY GOD is more powerful than they are!!! and i also prayed that maybe by reading my blog they might come to know the Lord. maybe they're reading my blog because they need HIS TRUTH & i'm not ashamed to tell it to them!!!! this isn't just some cute little decorating blog where i spill the beans on all the funny things going on in my boring life, it's a place where God can use me to testify of HIM!!!!
if these middle eastern men want to "follow me", they'd better be prepared to get a big dose of "following HIM"!!!!!
