Aloha Friday & Follow Sites

An Island Life hosts this meme. Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

My Question: Do you receive a lot of spam comments on your blog?

My Answer: Well, I'm not sure what the standards are - or what "a lot" is. But to me I feel like it's a lot. I get these comments from "Anonymous" all the time & always on some of the same posts. I have comment moderation on and just delete them. And I know I shouldn't get so annoyed, but I do. Just give it up people!

With out including the links they provide here is in example:

Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "Cell Phones on Black Friday":

Can you recommend the top performing Remote Management utility shareware?
I searched the web and discovered the following:


They all look different... Does anyone can recommend any other?
As well had somebody try this:


Oh well - I'll try to get over it. Anyway here is a list of Friday follow sites:

  1. Hi! I'm visiting from New Friend Friday. I love your blog! I signed up to be a new follower.

  2. Hi, I am visiting from NFF. I have not received any spam on my blog, at least not yet.

  3. Once upon I received some of them and including rude comments and for that reason I moderate all the comments.

    Happy Friday and enjoy your weekend.

  4. I don't receive that many, but it seems when I do it's like 20-30 withing few hours and then nothing for weeks.

  5. Hi Sue.
    WP has a lot of plug-ins to counteract that stuff.
    Stopping by from Friday-Follow to say hello.
    Thanks for playing.
    Have a great day!

  6. I do get spam comments but not too much. However they are still annoying.

    I mostly get them on older posts.

  7. I don't get too much. What I question is the person who leaves a comment (usually snarky) and doesn't even have a blog. What is that??

    Thanks a bunch for participating in my Follow Me Friday!!

    Have a great weekend.


  8. I get a lot of spam comments too and like you I just delete them.

    Thanks for stopping by the Healthy Moms. Have a wonderful Weekend!

  9. I probably get about one every 2 days from Anonymous leaving viagra links. I don't mind deleting them to save my readers from word verification.

  10. I am your newest follower from Friendly Friday! Would love for you to stop by my blog also!
    Have a great weekend!

  11. I am your newest follower from Friendly Friday! Would love for you to stop by my blog also!
    Have a great weekend!

  12. I don't get as many since moving over to Wordpress, the plugins they have work like a charm. I did, though, change to 'no anonymous' when I was on Blogger - since I wasn't getting any 'real' people leaving comments as anonymous, only spam. That seemed to do the trick! :)
