Thursday, June 09, 2005it's worst than you think...
Today, I realized that I had overlooked a dear soul who has been a faithful reader of "A Form of Sound Words" by not adding his website to my links. I corrected this unfortunate, dumb-dumb mistake by adding his website under "Christian Blogs", make sure to check out Brad at "Read'em and Reap".
After this pleasant deed, something quite UN-pleasant happened. My Statcounter started registering all sorts of pageloads from websites I had never heard of before. Naturally curious, I checked out these new visitors... what a mistake. I kid you not, nor am I exaggerating, half (if not three quarters) of the blogs were filled with pornography and other abominable content. I guess I shouldn't have been surprised, but I was.
I guess having a "fundamental Christian" website, I attract the right crowd and turn off the wrong one, so I don't often get visits from the unrepentant. This natural tendency probably gave me the inaccurate idea that the "blogosphere" was a somewhat "cleaner" environment than the traditional internet website. Oh well, I guess I can trash that crazy idea.
Watch yourselves out there brothers and sisters, it's a nasty "blog-world".
