I Changed My Mind Again!

Salam Alaikum / Hello,

Thank you all for being ever so patient with me and my changes which are now unchanged? what am i talking about? well i made my blog readers invite only BUT....... my posts were no longer showing in google reader and to cut it a long story short it's just easier and more convenient i keep the blog open.

My blog isn't personal as such i mean i don't divulge too much info! but my personality in my writing style comes across (i hope) and i don't feel great about the opposite sex having any piece of me.

When i found that a man (a muslim man at that) could read or would want to comment i felt quite put off the blogging experience because my blog is aimed at women only NOT that i discourage a man to get in the kitchen and cook for his wife and family no, that is something i champion at least every once in a while but you know i just don't feel comfortable with the men and woman interacting for no valid reason even in the virtual sense because it's not something permissible in the laws of my religion/Islam.

Anyway, i hope i made myself clear on the whole subject and please if you are a man and do follow my blog your free to take and use the recipes but i don't want to communicate i.e. comments with you in any shape or form unless of course you want to go through my husband? any comments from men that find will be deleted.

JazakAllah Khairan & Thank you for reading (assuming google reader is now publishing my posts again! lol)

More work for you! It is a hard decision on how to work your blog but with no contact from men! I don't wish to have contact with men either - I probably have only had 2 comments from men in 2 years of blogging (and that was because I was promoting my facebook page - so I stopped doing that!)- I just give a quick thanks for commenting and leave it at that. I don't get into big conversations and I don't visit their blogs. I have been lucky none have come back. Some may think it is rude but that is my choice to stay away from communicating with men. If a man wanted to keep commenting I think I would delete the comments as you said too! Hopefully you won't have any problems. Take Care.

assalamualaikum wa rahmatulahi wa barakatu!

i simply agree with you and the whole male issue....what is the point for them to comment anyway? if they want to cook for their wife they should just get their wives to browse your blog and relay the recipe to them! fear Allah!! I have men trying to comment on my blog all the time but alhamdulilah i filter all comments before i can post any! and it really does come in handy! have you tried that?!

Yes, it's annoying and weird to me when I see men commenting on sisters blogs, especially when the content really doesn't concern men.
Inshallah they got the message!

I have this same problem and they always say something silly like "can I use straighteners on my beard" I don't see the point.

I haven't received any comments from men but I don't think my blog is geared toward men.If I ever receive a comment from one, I think I would just say thanks for stopping by.In the end it's your blog and you can allow who sees it or not.

I hate that too. Its so annoying. Alhamdulillah i dont get any men communicating with me now. I did when i first started to blog. I just kindly informed them i am married and a muslimah and its forbidden to approach a sister. And deleted the comments and emails.
However lately i have been quiet horrified that some people search for X-rated content and get directed to my blog. When i looked up what searches people use to get to my blog i was shocked at some words used.
