Have ever wondered and wanted to know how to block an annoying blogger from reading your work? or You ever wanted to stop reading work from that blogger?
This internet of virtual world creates millions of opportunities to find such a sole culprits at times commenting negative thoughts.
I will give the steps to block such user from annoying you ever unless he/she creates a new blog with different email.
1. Block the user from WordPress Reader
Just click the 3 dots against the blog post in Reader as in the picture below and you will get the Block this site option. And Yay!! you blocked him/her and doing so their posts will never come up in your reader. Also remember unfollow the blog!!
2. Block from Commenting
Still the blogger can you read your work, but you can’t read his work anymore by doing in Step 1. But you wanna him/ her commenting on your blog, right?
Go to My Sites > Settings and you see a text box to enter the mail id from that user, you can get the mail id from the previous comments he/she made. Check your mail box for the notifications mails.
Also you can enter his/her IP address, this also can be seen in the previously commented mail notifications.
If you don’t wanna confuse of all these things, just enter her/his blog address in the box,,Yay! He will never able to read your work!!
3. OMG! Still theat stalker somehow read my work
Oh Don’t worry there is another way of getting rid of that fucker!
Just go to My sites > People > Followers ( on the right side top) and you will see option to remove that follower and you will never be seen on his Reader!
These are the few ways to control the follower and his activities from your end. And if he does know your blog URL and open in a new browser without logging in to the WordPress he/she will be able to read the blog and comment using different mail id.
You can block list the mail id as in the step 2, and also try blocking IP , that will permanently block the user from accessing from own PC/ smartphones. If at all he uses a new phone/PC his IP will be blocked!!
Also remember if someone’s comments are annoying in nature, just mark is spam!! and he /she will be sent to spam directly..never bother about it.
If anyone knows a better way to block the users, just comment below!
Happy blogging all!
