Spam Blog and other stuff

Kristi, one of my many, many, loyal readers, had an interesting experience recently which she blogged about.

I started a new, private blog the other day as a diet journal. I have only posted twice to the darn thing. Now, it has been locked and marked as a spam blog. – Spam Blog

I suspect blogger has had to learn to be extra careful since so many spam sites are created this way. i bet if you contacted them, they would free it up right away. After all, a true spammer would just move on but a legit user would complain.

My last blog about Fancast received a comment from someone at FANCAST! How cool is that? I’m thinking her job must be to search for Fancast on the net and track it down.

I think you’re right about them searching the net for their name.
It’s happened a couple of times to me and a friend.

My friend was talking about some new gum that came out and they sent him some for free. I talked about a brand of reusable diapers and the owner offered me and my readers a discount code. My wife posted about a controversial baby book and got a lot of feedback within minutes. It’s called Google Alerts and I use it now to search for stories about sharks and homelessness (sorry, no homeless sharks yet).

    Love the spam sushi! Thanks for the shout out. They still haven’t released my other blog yet but they say they are working on it.

    I gave you an “award”. Check out my blog for the info.

Have your say:
