My WordPress ID

So, since what has now become known amongst my friends as “the Drennan’s review debacle”, I’ve realised how ridiculously naive I was about blogging before I started.

I never had any idea that anyone except for a few of my friends would ever read that review, and can’t believe the amount of interest and reads per day it generates, even now. I think to date about 3000 people have read that particular post of mine, and obviously not everyone liked what I had to say.

OK- so lesson learned- don’t write anything in the public domain unless you have a thick skin! Which, I have discovered, is not me- mine is apparently painfully thin. Two people got very personal for reasons that I still don’t understand, and don’t think I ever will. Water under the bridge- they are complete losers and not worthy of my thought. I certainly shouldn’t let them upset me (even though I can’t help it!!)

However since then, I have noticed that a LOT of people are finding my blog by using the search “suzy2110”. I am very uncomfortable with this because I feel like I am being stalked. I’ve actually come to very much regret using this ID when I started my blog- once again with the major naivete- as I was using that ID in a couple of other internet facilities and have had to shut these down. I have also tightened security on other areas of my online life because I don’t feel safe with it any more.

LESSON LEARNED.

However- I wonder if I am overreacting. Maybe it’s just friends of mine who use this search. Can anyone own up please? It would give me peace of mind.

And if you are searching on my user ID because of the Drennan’s review- WHY???

    Hmm…weird! That would unsettle me a bit too, Suzy. I’m really quite naive about this stuff too, though.

    Hmmm…hadn’t read the review. You should just delete the post. If you don’t know how, email me and I can try to help you out.

    oh dear….that would have me wonder a bit as well. can you look to see where everyone is coming from to land on that post? Can you see what those that search under your ID are reading?

    so have you deleted that post? I couldn’t find it.

    I would be a bit unnerved by that as well, but in the same vein, it could have been a friend searching for you. If you are really worried about everything and are afraid for yourself or your family, you may want to consider changing your blog and then giving your kids web identities like Corey and I did.

    Personally, I wouldn’t delete the post as you are entitled to your opinion. However, there was no reason for anyone to get that nasty towards you. I’m sorry that something so innocent has caused you so much grief. Hugs!

    I’ve had a few nasty comments made about things I’ve posted – not reviews but actual personal attacks on myself or on those who appear in photos posted.

    It’s blatently obvious that whoever posted has nothing positive to contribute and everyone can see that they are being idiots.

    That said, I’d love to see 30 people read one of my posts – never mind 100 times that!

    Suzy. I enjoy reading your reviews, restaurant or otherwise and I hope you might reconsider and keep at it because I’m sure the vast majority of those 3000 found it useful. As you say, this journal is for your friends and it’s evident they enjoy reading them so you should keep it up 🙂
