Rate This Blog

Hmmmm--while cruising around some blogs site, I came upon a feature called Rate This Blog--as in movie ratings.

You know me, I am always curious about such little online ratings. You can discover what kind of book you are, what kind of bird, flower, song, etc.

You can discover the IQ of your blog (or your readers? which was it?).

So, I clicked on the Rate This Blog button, and I learned that my blog is:

free dating sites



I was mildly bemused by that, but then just underneath the rating was the explanation.

In the however many blogs the little rating machine "read," it found three references to DEATH and one to GUNS. Really? That's why "Parental Guidance" is needed to read my blog?

Well, I think I will just have to label this blog "guns and death" just to increase my blog rating.

I suppose all those blogs labeled "recipes" or "soup" didn't help either. Speaking of soup, I am taking a break until after the holidays. I have an inkling that those of you who are preparing food right now are NOT making soup, but rather baking cookies.

Closing note: if you decide to rate your blog, and if you cut and paste the HTML text to include in your blog--beware. As with some previous snippets of code that I have used, this one includes a tag line to direct you to a site for "cash advance." Why do these sites have to try to sneak unwanted ads in? I just snipped it out.

These things are interesting enough to look at, but I tend not to bother much anymore because they have no validity whatsoever so far as I can tell. Having said that, I'm sure I will click on one of these things again at some point. Just for fun.

Mine was rated PG-13 because of my piece on the overuse of prescription drugs in America. So be it.

My "Doc of Ages" blog rated no one under 17 due to death, drugs, pain, and sex. It's a wonder I don't give some old geezer a heart attack with all this x-rated content!

I was rated G because I only said the word DEAD (X1). Surprised I wasn't PG or anything else like that! That was fun, thanks!

Mauigirl said...

Mine was rated PG because I talked about "torture" four times and "death" once.

Femaildoc, that's a riot that yours was rated NC-17! Death, drugs, pain and sex...sounds very sadomasochistic and kinda Seattle Grunge.

I am not making cookies yet. I got the urge today to make Boston baked beans, lamb stew and tea biscuits. I guess I was in need of comfort food.

Maybe this coming week I will be moved to make sweet pleasure food.

Mary said...

I'm rate PG for using "poop" twice and "strangle" once. I think those references were contained in one post! I've said a lot worse than poop and strangle...

Come to us - your 'elite' readers for your rating, Donna. It's SF - for soul food. We always come away having been asked to share, think, act or merely to enjoy a good bowl of soup. It doesn't get any better than that.

Hmmmm, Donna, that's interesting.... I would say your posts contain adult content, but I'd classify it as "adult intellectual content". I think some younger folks could definitely benefit and learn from reading your posts.

Good for you to snip it out...I am trying to get my two blogs indexed now and apparently searches will not index them unless you have lots of bloggers links to your blog..so this is how they rate a good blog. Seems like it depends on how many friends you have then. This is such a weird system.
