One of the first steps that you should take as a blogger is to create a clear and decisive comment policy. Back before I started this blog, I avoided all social media platforms like the plague. It sounds weird for someone who has a BBA with a concentration in information technology to say that. But, now that my job requires me to be active in social media, I am even more convinced than ever that it can be an emotional vacuum that sucks the very soul out of you.
Seriously, I am always amazed at how mean some people can be. I told myself going into this that I would need to develop a thick skin if I wanted to survive, but nothing can prepare you for some of the things that you may encounter. However, a good comment policy can help shield you and your viewers from the nay sayers and the Debbie downers.
