Bloggers Beware!

You’ve probably heard the old adage:  “Buyer beware.”  Well, I have another one for you:  Blogger beware!  I know, you’re probably thinking what the…?

I reviewed my blog today and was elated to discover another post under comments.  This one was classified as “Spam” by the blogger gods, but I thought it was a mistake.  I tried to link to the website shown, and got a website under construction.  Still not convinced the blogger god was correct, I attempted more linking, but was once again unsuccessful.

I proudly clicked on the “accept” button; while basking in the joy of this newly discovered “comment post.”  Then I promptly clicked back to the posts and clicked on the new comments from my new reader.  Much to my chagrin, I was linked to an Italian site –and since I don’t speak Italian — immediately wondered if I had linked to a porno site.

After much retooling of my blog program, I think I have removed the faux comments, but I now know to trust the blog gods because they are so much wiser than I when it comes to my blog.
