How to Deal with Negative Online Reviews

True confessions: When I first started blogging about a decade ago, I wrote a post for a top 10 website where I made what I thought was an innocent off-the-wall comment, meant to be (at least in my mind) somewhat humorous. Let me tell you, the barrage of hate email I got scared me to death and almost had me quit my keyboard clacking for good!

This is a short excerpt from a blog post I did for Entrepreneur.com.  Read the rest of the post.

    I’ve never paid attention to negative stuff online, well not totally true, I do work to counteract it; but if I lost my cool or obsessed about all the bad stuff written on the internet, especially in comment sections, I’d lose my mind or be fighting it 24/7.

    I have a business that I subcontract this stuff out to, facebook, twitter, serach engine stuff, works miracles and leaves my plate for actually running my business.

    I like the tip about writing and posting around the web to counterbalance the negative stuff that comes up on google, that is something I’ll actually do.

    This is why I have someone much more level headed than myself manage my online presence, they do ths stuff for a living and have always produced great results even when I’ve been panicing or fuming about stuff I see online.
