I recently received an email from a fellow blogger who wanted to swap buttons with me. She changed her mind a few days later when she saw this post. She said that she has 2 young kids and that kind of language was not something she wanted to "support or promote" and that it was "out of her comfort zone". I'm not upset with her at all. I thanked her for her honesty and meant it. (BTW- I encourage all of you to check the "about" section on blogs that you are considering advertising with, as mine clearly states that I have a potty mouth.)
Anyway, this brought up a subject that I don't really understand. Why do some bloggers only choose to work with "family-friendly" blogs and businesses? What does MY language on MY blog have to do with YOUR children? Are your children reading my blog? If so, they shouldn't be.
Do I have kids? No. But if I did, I am 99% sure that my language would not change except when I was in front them. And again, I don't think children are reading this blog. We are all adults here. I guess I have just never understood what the big deal is.
I don't discriminate with advertising requests from other bloggers but maybe I should start being more selective...? Oh you blog about your baby? Nope, not for me. What you hate dogs?! Nope, can't work with you.
It drives me crazy when people who "don't use curse words" say things like "F that" or "I hate that shizz" or "she's acting like a b word" (I could keep going..).. I mean if you are against using certain words, that's fine. But don't half-ass it. (oops I used the a-word)
There's obviously a time and place to speak certain ways. As I said here, I know when it's appropriate and when it's not and I think that's really all that matters.
Again, I'm not upset with anyone. I really do just want to know your opinions about this. I want to understand it. This is a take it or leave it kind of blog and if you can't take it, please don't be afraid to leave it.
Alright, I'm out this bitch! (sorry, I had to..)
