The Most Horrible Comment in My 8-year Experience as Amateur Blogger

I started blogging about 8 years ago in 2009. I was a complete beginner to blogging and writing in general. I was 17 and English is my second language. I wrote about personal things which had almost no value to the reader. My writing style was a bit long-winded and some sentences make no sense to me now. One of my oldest posts from 2011 is about the purpose of movies and has been viewed over 14,000 times. It was informative but written really badly. So badly that I got the following comment from an anonymous visitor:

Horrible Comment 03.03.2013

I was shocked. On the bright side, negative attention is better than no attention, right? A few days later, I re-wrote my blog post which is presently generating the most traffic to my website and hasn’t received further abuse.
