Easily 99.9% of the comments left on my blog are quite lovely and always positive. Only .1% are negative and I choose to delete them.
Because it's my blog.
I don't expect everyone to agree with everything I do or say. However, I do expect comments to be courteous. My blog is a place for me to share and inspire. I encourage you all to share as well. I have found inspiration and learned a lot from my readers. I appreciate the camaraderie we seem to share as well. I've made a lot of friends along the way.
Negative, hateful and derogatory comments are not welcome on my blog. That is just how it is.
Normally, I delete a negative or derogatory comment and that's the end of it. However, someone has taken a serious dislike to my post My Big Project Is Finally Complete. I read the comment and figured this person didn't fully read and understand the post. And that's okay.
When I deleted the comment that was left it was quickly followed by yet another by that same person. I deleted that one as well and I will continue to do so.
This particular person seems to have taken offense to the fact that I have chosen to purchase a brand new car because Dave Ramsey would not approve. And that's okay too. But frankly, I don't really care if he would or not. I personally do not follow Dave Ramsey. Honestly, I really don't know a whole lot about the guy. However, I happen to have friends who do and have benefitted greatly from his ideas. I think that is wonderful.
I bought a brand new car because I can. And that is what I wanted. If I had wanted to buy a used car then I would have. I financed it the way I did because that is what I wanted to do. I don't have to justify anything to anyone. I simply decided to share with my readers what I had decided to do.
To my 99.9% I thank you from the depths of my heart. You are all so wonderful and appreciated. I look forward to hearing from you again and again. There will be many more new posts in our future.
To the remaining .1% I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. God Bless.
By the way. I really love my new car!
