Okay, ignore the link above, that's just so the spiders over at MyLot can verify this blog. It will be gone once that is done. I do, however have a funny story about my first attempt to post to the MyLot forums. I joined several weeks ago but haven't had the time to see what it's all about. It's a Social Network that instead of making a ton of money for themselves from all the people that use their site, they give the money (or at least some of it) back to their users. I love to read other peoples ideas and put in my own two cents and they have a vast variety of topics, so you can find anything to rant about.
Yesterday I finally had a little time to look into it and found a topic "Who named your baby?" I decided to tell my story of how we named our children and this is what I wrote:
My husband and I looked through baby books early on in my first pregnancy and decided on Hunter, before we knew the sex, lol. Hunter is our 5 year old son. While pregnant with our daughter we weren't so quick to pick, but the day we found out she was a girl, Hunter wanted to name her Charlie (he had been watching "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.") We decided to name her Chelsea. When thinking of names I would always say them with Hunter...Hunter and Chelsea, Hunter and Jade, Hunter and Charlie. Hunter and Chelsea sounded the best. Am I the only one who did that with the second?
So I'm trying to submit my post and get this message:
Your entry contains content of a mature nature. You have selected to not view content of a mature nature. If you would like to proceed as written, you must first change your preferences to allow mature content. Otherwise please reword your submission and try again.
Do you see my error? I had to reread it to see what might be of "mature" nature. I never selected NOT to view content of mature nature, but I guess the system did that for me. Man, some of the blogs I would miss out on if this was a setting on my computer instead of this forum. Some of you Mommy's really like the F word. I do to, I just don't use it in my writing since my In Laws would be highly upset and probably try to take the kids away from me.
In the end, I changed the word "sex" to "gender" and it posted just fine.
