Anonymous goes viral on my blog

I started blogging three years back. It was hard for me to keep update on my Random Thoughts of my random thoughts. It is always difficult for me to turn my thoughts into words. But I do like to play with words and construct them into whatever I can. It is always good and lovable to read as a diary and sometimes I doubt myself, do I really wrote this peace? The journey of writing when I am poor in vocabulary and even then when I finally manage to see in black and white, I feel sigh and real wow! 

Three years back it was too young to the readers. Page view count button remain constant. I started following blogs and in return they do follow me. I started commenting my thoughts and thank the respective authors for sharing their beautiful articles. My zeal for reading and writing increased, and consequently following many bloggers, sharing my little writing on facebook and other social media, the network of bloggers was thus shaped. When more and more flocking among bloggers increased thus the anonymous comments started flowing in. Page view button accelerate to count how many visit the site which worth not visiting but feel great with inspiring comment and too depriving for inaccurate to the content of the post. 

I don’t have much idea on why people choose anonymity to comment. Daily I get forty to fifty spams. I never accept the spam. But many comments authored by anonymous can be seen on almost every posts. And it is unlucky especially for the popular posts. Moment I see my post jumped to the list of popular posts, it is definite that it is being chased with anonymous comments. At times I find so difficult to delete them. 

I am happy that many are going through what I have written. I am unhappy that they raise their voice anonymously.  Almost everyone comment with only notion to promote their business. From car rental to travel agent and flight business, they find their time to comment with good words and leave their website id on my website. To be frank I am at all not sure whether I will make to fly around the world with their flight and through their travel agent and do car rental business in Europe?  One that disgust and frustrate is when they comment to promote their sex website. I am not interested in getting naked online and moreover I am in society where sex is still a taboo type. 

One very imperative feedback I got from anonymous is about the layout and loading time. They appreciate me for easy loading of its contents. But few say in some browsers image gets overlap. I know in Firefox and chrome everything is fine nonetheless I am finding ways how I can make uniform appearance to all browsers. 

It is always great for me to flatter with your great words which inspire me to write more. I write more with smile. I will write more with smile. I will try reading all your comments. I am sorry if I can’t if I delete them. Though it is spam I do my part to read it. It is fluky great that few aren’t spam. 

I want to know if it is same for your blog too.

  1. Hi, Sangay, this post took my interest as I have just spent so much time today deleting hundreds of anonymous posts. I don't really understand these comments - do you think they are actually visitors on the site, as in, do they account for part of the traffic to the site? Why do they bother? Why don't they leave real comments? any way interesting to see another blogger writing about these anonymous ghosts.

  2. Thank you Good for having read and commented on the post! I don't have much idea about and it seems this is happening to other bloggers too!!
