Creepy Blog Followers

Recently my husband and I have noticed occasionally we will have someone leave a comment or sign up to follow our blogs only to discover that when you click on their picture/comment you discover they are how shall I say 'a bit shady'!

I write this as a warning and heads up to others. I am not concerned with who reads my blog. I am very concerned about who decides to link up to my blog that others might then click on and find themselves in places of ill-repute. In addition, I have had more than one person who was also trying to promote books that flat out involved things contrary to the Word of God.

It is and has been and always will be our desire to honor God in what we write and represent. When people try to demean that or use us to draw others to sites that are basically evil in nature - well, they will be blocked and deleted.

If you have a blog, are you paying attention to who follows you and to who is commenting? I certainly don't know everyone who follows my blog or leaves comments, but I can guarantee you that I ALWAYS click on their picture and to the best of my ability make sure they are not trying to mislead anyone that stops by this blog.

I pray that God will use this blog to bring glory and honor to his name and His alone!

P.S. Let me clarify that this is not about the person leaving the comment or following, but about what they are clearly trying to promote and/or sell.

I don't have that many followers, but I always check their profile and if they have a blog, I make a "thank you" visit.

What I have found most disturbing lately is that I've had to put my comments on "moderation" - which I do not like...For the life of me, I don't understand some people and why they find it funny (?) to target Christian blogs.
