Troll-Slaying 101

by on February 23, 2015

Angelface, there will always be trolls.

There will always be those who prowl ze interwebs + cubicles + classrooms,
looking for victims or vicious amusement.

But the worst troll isn’t out-there.
She’s in your head.

But here’s the absolutely fantabulous thing about her …
she feeds on attention.

She cannot …
I repeat…
can not
live/survive without it.

So ignore her.

No arguing.
No defending.
No trying to reason/explain/quieten her down.


Walk away and switch gears.

Put your absolute undivided attention on ThatThingYouDo.
Revel in the luscious energy of your special gift to the world.

Read your “I Am Awesome” file
(you do have one, right?)

Devote your BEing to being fah-bulous.

Because you ARE
and she isn’t.
And the minute you own that,
she’s dead.

All hail to the Troll Slayer.

*deep curtsies*






PS Yes, she’ll probably respawn tomorrow.
But she’ll won’t be as strong as she was today.
And you’ll be stronger.

PPS Hat-tip to Seth Godin for the inspiration.
My fancrush continues.

I’ve learned a LOT just from this blog post, Miss Jacqui… I know I do “ThatThingYouDo,” I’ve been reinforced on the fact that the biggest trolls are in my head and that I should simply ignore them, and I’ve learned (as I’ve always suspected) thst “Networking IS sexy!”

Thank you!!

Great advice on combating Trolls. I have multiple blogs and website plus the usual social media accounts so of course have to deal with Trolls daily. My biggest mistake is not ignoring them. Waste of time trying to have a dialogue with stupid… you can’t win.
