Anyone else getting ridiculous amounts of spam at the moment?

I’ve always had the odd spam comment to deal with but now it is between 30-50 spam messages daily. Unfortunately, a few of my fabulous #Writephoto entrants links pop up in the spam box from time to time too so I do have to scroll through each page to save those ones.


This year, I braved the world of social media and joined instagram (you can find me here – but even on there I also seem to get a lot of “Promote it on” spam messages too.

Anyway, that’s my #rantoftheday over. Any tips on how you guys filter these are appreciated. 🙂

Take Care.



Sit Down. Shut Up. Write… joining the world of social media

I have been on wordpress and goodreads a while, but after reviewing a post on Blogging 201 I realised I am a bit behind when it comes to the world of social media.

Having been determined to write every moment possible at the start of the year, this has dropped off each week until last week when I was lucky if I spent an hour clicking away. Whose fault is that? Mine completely, but I have a whole host of reasons I was ill for several weeks, it was my partners graduation weekend, I have had to work a lot of hours…blah..blah..blah! Time to
Sit Down. Shut Up. Write. Don’t Stop.

I’ve also just entered the scary world of facebook for those who connect through this:-

Any recommendations or tips welcome 🙂
