An influx of followers - A need to block some!

I seem to have had influx of new followers of late! Which would normally be great, but I had some serious doubts about these new ones.
Most of the followers I have I know, we've cyber met on forums etc and I value your company. And most of those lovely followers have links back to their blogs.
These new followers didn't, after investigating, my search went nowhere or went to a google page.

So I blocked them! I can only assume they are either spammers or some other blummin' nuisance, what concerned me too was that they appears to have become members on some of the blogs I follow. I'm sure all you lovely people don't want them hanging around either.

So this is is a notice to any new followers, if I don't know you through other sites, or if I am not able to link to and read your blog then I am afraid I will block you.

I don't want to have to do this, I wish that people who use the internet were responsible and stopped all this crap they seem to enjoy dishing out.

Apologies to anyone I've have blocked who are genuine but I don't know that you are unless I can see you are or you leave a comment on one of my posts

Gripe over, as you were! :D


  1. Hmm, sorry this is happening. I "think" I know most of mine also. Therehave been one or 2 that were other than.....anyway, thanks for not blocking me!

  2. It's a ruddy pain I tell ya! I wouldn't block you me dear lol!

    Yikes! Don't block me please! I love reading your blog, and I don't have one of my own to link to. I guess I read so many great blogs that I feel rather inadequate by comparison!

  4. Aww maggie don't worry, most of the followers are fine, the ones I am referring too just weren't genuine followers I'm pretty sure :D

  5. It's hard and frustrating to have to try to keep one step ahead of the spammers etc all the time. I noticed someone I follow had a blatant advertiser leaving their guuf in the comment section yesterday. I don't want to have to go that extra step on my blog where the comments have to be "approved" before posting but it may come to that. You'ld think they have enough outlets wouldn't you!

  6. I had to use the approved as I was getting a lot of spam! The sad thing to at time is that they were the only comments I was getting lol :D


I love reading your comments and I thank you for taking the time to write them. I do my very best to reply to every one of them right here on the blog. When you leave your next comment tick the 'email follow up comments' and then you'll get any replies I leave. Thank you for reading my blog.
