Well, I'm back at it. Because I am a giver, I am going to share my story so you can learn from it.
I joined the big world of the blogosphere almost one year ago. There are many circles of bloggers that I follow.
If I need a some purdy house talk, I seek out The Shabby Creek Cottage or Southern Hospitality.
If I need a smorgasbord of great writing, I seek out Yeah Write.
If I need some funny mom moments, I seek out Nucking Futs Mama or Buried With Kids.
If I need techy help, I seek out Serenity Now or Angela Shelton.
If I need poop talk or vagina jokes, I find myself at Divine Secrets of a Domestic Diva or The Bearded Iris.
A few weeks ago, I got this comment from Daphne at Flip Flops and Pearls on my blog:
Have you tried Shock Top? It kinda tastes like BM with an orange already added, delish :)
I had been spending too much time with my raunchy circle, because "tastes like BM" immediately flagged a bowel movement reference.
Being a vigilant blogger when it comes to spammer comments, I contacted Daphne to alert her that some sicko had left said comment on my blog.
Daphne promptly explained that she had actually left that comment in response to a Blue Moon beer reference I had left on her earlier post. She explained this in the same, strained way that I explained to my son how to spell R2D2.
Oops. My bad. Can we pretend that I didn't bring bowel movement talk into the world of purdy?
So...as I tell my kiddos- keep your privates private.
Remember to keep your circles straight.
