How to deal with a troll (or other undesirable persons who attack your blog)
Are you tormented by a troll? Is your blog a likely target for trolls? Are you scared of being trolled?
There's nothing worse than being attacked by a troll. All your hard work demolished with a few seconds by some thoughtless, cruel remarks. Usually by someone who doesn't understand you or what you stand for, or has a totally different opinion to yours.
But then this horrible person doesn't go away. Or they return again to give you more grief. And you feel violated, abused, tortured, just for speaking your mind. Nothing you say is right, everything is put down, and you start to doubt yourself...
Wouldn't it be good if you knew how to grow a thick skin against such people? To understand where they're coming from and how to counteract them? To be in a position where you can defend yourself, and eventually win the day?
Trolls are a public nuisance, but there are ways to combat them. Once you understand them and how they work, the methods you use (which are kind and considerate) will help you to cope with any form of negative attack on your blog or on social media.

How to prevent yourself becoming a troll!
It is all too easy to slip into the negative ways which are infiltrating the internet right now. You may be impressed by a turn of phrase, or admire how someone responds to a post, but it may not be the right thing to do!
There will be a list of options to think about before you submit your comments, anywhere on the web. The last thing you want to do is to transform yourself into a troll as well!
How negativity affects everyone throughout the internet
Negativity is huge at the moment. There is so much of it about, and it is even delivered by people of influence as well as trolls. It is becoming the social norm, which is extremely dangerous for the social impact of the web.
You will be highlighted into how negativity can impact on you, your followers and potential clients. And why there is so much negativity and what can be done about it.

A personal note
Trolls are a real nuisance, and can make both bloggers' and social media users' lives a complete misery. There are also many misconceptions about them, so if they were better understood, we would be able to cope better with the mischief they cause.

I hope you enjoy the course as much as I did creating it!
