How's it going my gumdrops? You may recall that yesterday, I backburned Song Saturday. Today I'm also backburning Cartoon Sunday. Don't worry, this is NOT anything permanent. I'm trying to give Song Saturday and Cartoon Sunday small breaks.
Depending on how everything goes, I should be back to sharing those 2 blogs again, next weekend.
I can't remember, if I already explained to readers my reasons for putting restrictions on It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns in general. Maybe I have in the past. If I haven't already, I will explain. If you haven't had the chance to read the blog from yesterday, you can click on the link below.
I briefly explained why I have restricted the "Horror" page on It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns. However, I don't remember if I explained my reasons for the restrictions on my website in general.
Several months ago, a Xangan friend/subscriber suggested, that I lower the age of joining. I refuse to make It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns be for people under 18 years old. There are enough websites, that pander to minors. Take facebook, for example.
Originally, that social networking site was meant for college students to interact with other college students nationwide. After Mark Zuckerberg started seeing dollar signs, he made his site for 13-year-olds and up. Now, look at facebook? It's SWARMING with everyone and his/her obnoxious brats and cats on it. I don't want to go that route.
I purposely created It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns for adults 18 years old and up because of the content. There are some cutesy things I share on here, but I do NOT want to censor myself or anyone else for Little Johnny and Susie, in order to keep their parents from blaming me for not babysitting them. Honestly, they should be offline anyway, unless they need to do homework and classroom assignments.
Considering the amount of pedophiles, identity thieves, and other scumbags using the Internet, parents should NOT be constantly putting their kids in harm's way by always needing to plaster their children's information online and creating accounts for them to be on every social media site.
The suicide rates from kids being cyber bullied has increased, since the time Mark Zuckerberg and other sites gave minors permission to be on them. It's terrible enough that the Internet is unsafe for adults. Why create MORE problems and make them worse for children?
It's also like I said yesterday, I don't want to deal with plagiarists or someone's demon seed using my content as a scapegoat like those demon seeds from The Slenderman Scandal in Waukesha, WI. Over these last 2 years, I have dealt with enough copycat bloggers on Blogster. Some of them on that website have dealt with their own share of plagiarists as well.
Whenever I post Song Saturday and Cartoon Sunday blogs, I always make sure, that I credit my sources. On Blogster, I have dealt with my share of opportunistic copycats, that didn't want to credit me as their source. In fact, some randomly chose to create their own websites only because they saw mine and wanted to have their own for futility.
In a way, it is flattering that I have some influence over a few people with a purpose. Although, there are a few of them, who feel the need to copycat everything I do YET they don't want to support my content. That pisses me off, especially when they start begging me for help. I mostly keep my distance from a few on Blogster and rarely blog on the site anymore for good reasons. Quite a few of them over there lack originality in EVERYTHING they post.
I'm sure some readers believe that I'm just being a self-righteous bitch, but the proof is in the pudding. There are a lot of people both on and offline, who REALLY need to pull their heads out their asses and wake the hell up to what's happening around them everyday without the media coverage. Anyway, I hope this better explains my reasons for the restrictions on It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns.
