If I ever decide to stop blogging, you can thank the spammers for me quitting. I am sick to death of seeing their slimy links on my blog.
My posts are moderated after they've gone live for 24 hours so I suspect you shouldn't see most of the spam that comes through, but I still see it in my email and it drives me absolutely insane.
It's gotten so bad, I have actually considered deleting this blog. So far I have talked myself out of it.
Mistress of the Stone should be out soon. Word on the street says August 28th.
I am planning a little contest for my OTHER blog, Back to Basics. It's going to run a whole month. No ETA on when it'll start, but expect it very soon. In the meanwhile, if you're not following my blog or Facebook page, you should.
When the contest starts, those who are already following Back to Basics or have Liked its sister-Facebook page (The Frugal Way) will get extra points in the drawing. Comments and tweets will count too.
Last week I talked about picnics and going green. Before that it was laundry, and toilets, and building a pet first aid kit. I run the gamut with topics when it comes to frugal living and simple solutions. Next week, I'm even having my first guest.
Everyone is welcome--except spammers.
Has anyone noticed an increase in spam? Do you moderate your blogs?
