I mentioned it at the beginning of yesterday's article: A troll invited himself to my interview on Twitter. Answering questions from a host and an audience can be stressful. But add a disgruntled individual to the mix, and you have the perfect recipe for failure.

OMG, Cendrine!

Thanks SO much for writing this post. I loved it!

I've dealt with one troll in particular since I've relaunched my blog and I'm willing to bet he's the same one that crashed your Twitter chat.

I too have noticed that he seems to have an issue with women bloggers. When I first connected with him through Facebook, he seemed nice, but as time went on and I started to get a lot of recognition and mentions from top bloggers, he quickly turned sour and left snide comments on my blog.

I didn't necessarily see it coming, but looking back, I can see where this type of behavior falls right in line for him - seeing as when we first met he vented to me about another woman blogger that supposedly ripped off his content.

I think that the way you handled his negativity was very wise and is the exact way that I handled it as well.

I think fighting off negativity with humor is the best policy. Never let them see you sweat and stand behind what you know.

Thanks again for sharing your experience with this and congrats on everything you're doing!
