Let us start by saying that #bloghour is our FAVOURITE time of the week. Spending an hour + with the incredible blogging community talking about all sorts of weird and wonderful topics. There is so much that we want to talk about and so much that we want to hear from you…so we’ve decided to create a plan for what we’re going to talk about over the next few months. If you’re new to this then we host our highly engaged #Bloghour every single Tuesday at 9pm over on Twitter. Our plan for 2019 has been led by a variety of topics around 4 key areas:
- Mental Health
Now then this list is JUST what I (Lauren) could come up with with a little help from my friends. If you have got an idea for a #bloghour then please email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll feature your idea (if we like it…we probably will!)
If you’re a brand or a business and you’ve got something you want to talk about with the blogging community then our #bloghours are available for collaboration with brands too so get in touch with us if you would like to know more (using the same email address).
So…drum roll please… the plan for the next 3+ months is:

Skimming through the #bloghour tweets on this weeks topic. Very interesting stuff led by @UKBlogAwards this evening
@UKBlogAwards I think most people who bully/troll are insecure with themselves or they have nothing better to do in their lives than to rip into someone else who's done nothing wrong #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards Punish those who troll/bully online. Delete and ban those abusers. #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards 1. Block and report. 2. Be the bigger person. 3. Tell someone who cares/can help you. 4. Seek help if it's affected you mentally. Don't suffer in silence #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards To get a reaction out of you and cause unneeded and unwanted drama! #BlogHour
Really interesting topic in #bloghour tonight about trolls. It got me thinking, how many of you have reported or blocked people for being trolls? #bloggerswanted #bloggersrequired #bloggerstribe
@UKBlogAwards I think any social media platform can be bad for bullying and trolling. I was bullied through Facebook were the people bullying me would upload videos of themselves making fun of me to all their friends. But the worst is Insta as you can't report DM messages to anyone #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards It has been one of the biggest causes of my anxiety and very low self esteem. It has made me lose trust in people so I have trust issues. I wish I chose to stand up for myself more but I was scared instead of letting them get away with it until I told someone about it. #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards Thank you for raising these important problems bloggers may face. #BlogHour
@UKBlogAwards I have been trolled many times especially during my time at school when I was constantly being bullied and picked on by so called friends or classmates #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards Thanks for a fab chat as always! It was interesting reading about others experience with trolling. Hopefully we can all now deal with it if it happens to us!
@UKBlogAwards Thanks for hosting! It was a really good chat. I didn’t think I’d have much to say about the topic, but surprisingly I felt like I contributed a bit! It was a really interesting topic! Down with trolls! #bloghour
@WIMWonderland You're so welcome! #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards Thank you so much for hosting this chat, it's a subject that is incredibly sensitive for me. I loved to hear other peoples advice and that I'm not alone and together we can rise above them 🥰 #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards Actually! I remembered one of my photos about my brothers LGBT post on IG got a troll on it. It was an old friend from school. Told me I’m dumb for posting it and mansplained how ‘outing my bro’ was dangerous (he was out already). He was homophobic and I reported him #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards I think they just get a kick out of causing drama tbh. The fact that a lot of the time they don't know you probably gives them false confidence as well because they think they can do what they want without any consequences
Thank you all for a great @UKBlogAwards #BlogHour tonight, thank you for the love, RTs and the follows, makes a change me tweeting during the hour from here, but it's been great fun as it's been a while. Tweet you all next week. ^Karen
Thank you so much for joining in #bloghour tonight - did you learn anything new or find any comfort? Until next week! #UKbloggers #blogger
@UKBlogAwards Definitely a mixture of reasons! Could be that someone is jealous - maybe their own life is pretty bad so they turn to bully others, could be that that's how they've seen others behave so they've picked up the same behavior #Bloghour
@UKBlogAwards Don't reply because that's what they want. Ignore and report!
@UKBlogAwards A6) As mentioned earlier tonight it's seems to be the big "J", jealousy, it's such a shame that it happens, but maybe it's part of human nature, some people can be horrible and they don't think of the damage they are doing, but some seem to love the pain they inflict! #BlogHour
@UKBlogAwards I think things like only being able to create one username using one email address are great to stop multiple fake accounts. There could definitely be better responses to reporting people though
@UKBlogAwards Though from my trolls I've learnt that a lot of it steams for self hate and jealous. Thinking I some hoe live a better life than they do, if only they knew -_-
They target you because you are doing SOMETHING while they are doing NOTHING. #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards A6) Issues with their daily lives, or how they were brought up as children. The different between the offline era and the connected era is staggering. Young people will never know what it was like before Internet. As a society we need to mature our net behaviour. #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards #BlogHour A6 I think that some people chose to troll because they feel insecure about themselves and they want to make others feel insecure too.
@UKBlogAwards At the end of the day inevitably, they will become bored after you not responding, it's a shame mine hasn't learned she isn't getting anywhere. I don't think they share the same brain cells as you and I if I'm being honest. #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards A6) They’re so unhappy in their own lives that they only get a thrill out of trying to ruin someone else’s! #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards 3.I think they do it out of a deep sadness in their own soul at being so unhappy with themselves. If it’s a personal attack (you know who it is) then I’d say it’s either out of a fallout they can’t let go of or because they are simply jealous. #bloghour
Same to both sides #mathstutor #gcse #onlinetutor #maths #tutor #gcsemaths #tuition #onlinetutoring #london #mayfair #mrwaynesmaths #waynethemathstutor #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards I honestly beileve that jealousy plays a major part, the truth is they dont 'hate you' it's the exact opposite. Trolls will try to make you feel bad about yourself and put you down, don't let them and don't stoop to thier level. They have nothing better to do! 🙌 #Bloghour
@mishmeshblog1 Every Tuesday at 9pm! #bloghour
Q6) Controversial question…but WHY do you think some people choose to behave like that (to troll we mean!) #Bloghour
@UKBlogAwards So gutted I missed this, do you do #bloghour every week?
@UKBlogAwards It can be classed as digital abuse. Some cases may be classed as stalking. If it can fit into a criminal category then it should be reported, its a crime. #BlogHour
@femenish @UKBlogAwards Its good to hear I am not the only one. #BlogHour
@femenish @UKBlogAwards I feel like so much more could be done on this issue and it just isn't and it really is frustrating. Even more so when the trolls go around using your picture or name to drag your name in the dirt... it's soulless #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards It's difficult to put something in place that can put a stop to it, we've got the report option but it's still not enough, if they were to put more surveillance on social media I'm sure people would complain about having zero privacy #Bloghour
@LucyMaryTaylor @UKBlogAwards They are back online, on here with a new handle. #Bloghour
@UKBlogAwards this is a completely different topic, but things being shared on Facebook (eg Chch shooting) and then on ig and YouTube. Facebook should be more aware of what’s happening online, they need to be more vigilant. They do have a lot to answer for imo #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards I would reporting but it doesn't get you very far, nothing never seems to be done by social media platforms when you report something #BlogHour
@UKBlogAwards Usually I name and shame the people who wronged me on either my blog, on a website/news outlet or in a magazine article/review. I'd like to make examples out of them. (Psst, I'm looking at you, @DiamondLordess. She used to steal my photos without asking for permission). #Bloghour
@UKBlogAwards And as much as I try to complain to the social plate form itself the troll either makes a new account or uses their mums or some other family member or friends account. You just have to stray away from profile that don't show real identity #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards #BlogHour A5 If on YouTube or certain blogging platforms such as WordPress, then comments on videos or blog posts can be put on approval to filter out any potentially mean comments that could be posted on then.
@UKBlogAwards A5) validating profiles to real people. Too many people hide behind an avatar and a keyboard when they are trolling! #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards Reporting only goes so far. More does need to be done about stopping online bullying and trolls. It’s hard to say what - maybe more surveillance and rules about online behaviour. Since it’s online it can be really hard to track. #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards Or because they hadn't come to my house or *physically attacked me* #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards A5) In an ideal world if it is severe, then criminal prosecution, name and shame for repeat offenders. But how to police the internet? There are not enough resources #BlogHour
@UKBlogAwards 2.Honestly, I don’t know if there is anything that can be done. A few times I’ve gone to the police, they’ve told me they’d investigate. A few months go by I call up and eventually get told there’s nothing that can be done if they haven’t threatened me or attack me #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards Real identity in order to make profiles, I find people don't say things when officially named. Hiding behind a 'fake profile' gives them power. (In thier minds anyway.) To me hiding behind a fake profile is cowardly. Never has my troll messaged me with there birth name! #bloghour
Q5) What do you think can be done by the ‘powers that be’ to stamp down on this kind of behaviour? #Bloghour
@JenLGilmour @UKBlogAwards This!! I actually talk a lot about this with my students, although it’s more in the real world incidents (rather than online). I tell them to ignore comments, mean people etc because then trolls don’t have a reaction to feed off! #bloghour ignoring works irl too.
@luvlifewlee @BlazingMinds @ssherrytweets @UKBlogAwards @facebook It’s even important to report things on facebook, Twitter etc that aren’t necessarily trolling people but are spreading hate speech. #bloghour if you see things that are terrible or disgusting don’t stand by and do nothing - report it!!
@femenish @luvlifewlee @ssherrytweets @UKBlogAwards WOW! That's awful and from family as well! #bloghour
@NatashaAtlas_ @UKBlogAwards I'm really sorry to hear that! honestly don't take in a single thing they have to say it's what they are hoping for #bloghour
@luvlifewlee @BlazingMinds @ssherrytweets @UKBlogAwards Once I reported a whole branch of my very distant family because they were trolling my brother - they writing homophobic, body shaming messages publicly on facebook. I think their facebook accounts were taken down for a while. #bloghour
@UKBlogAwards Don't respond to them, block them, but if it is getting out of hand then I would tell someone for sure, you shouldn't have to handle it by yourself, they'll be people there to support you 💚 #Bloghour
@UKBlogAwards Good evening everyone! I'm Lucy over at https://t.co/x5Uwakpv1h ! #BlogHour

Q1) Have you ever been trolled or do you currently have a troll? #Bloghour
I have a chocolate obsession and I was going to call my new kitten something related to chocolate but my family started to make fun of me so I ended up naming him bear as he looked like a bear when he was tiny 🙂 #bloghour
