Beware! Spammers Are On The Loose! .

Kind of obvious, but hey ho!

A warning for Six Word Saturday.

Well, it does fit in… sorta.

This links to my other blog.

And it appears treachery is afoot.

A little added drama for Saturday!!!

I think that’s enough sets of six words for now, so I’ll continue as normal. As normal for me. Whatever that may be…

I’ve received a few new followers on my other blog, Splodge and Splatter, over the past few weeks, and I’m not complaining about that at all. I like followers, and, believe it or not, I do like following as well (when I get the chance to, that is (but that is another story (ongoing, but best kept for another time.)))

I recently posted Meteor Shower and the other day a comment was left in moderation, from one of these new followers, that merely said ‘! .’ I didn’t approve it, for no other reason than the fact that I’m waaaay behind with comments on that blog – think of my badness on this blog and multiply it by ten over there. Yesterday another new follower left the very same message on the same post, but I noticed this second message swiftly vanish from the screen – it had been swept up into spam.

This arose my curiosity, so I looked into the links behind the commenters. They appear to be from WordPress bloggers, both blogs starting in June this year, and both blogging about a mixed bag of topics. I don’t mind mixed topics; some folk blog about what interests them and have a blog specifically for that, and others blog about anything and everything (much like myself), and I don’t mind either. It’s the person behind the blog that interests me (as well as what they write, I hasten to add!) What I noticed about both blogs is that each post of theirs had quite a few links within them.

Links are useful, helpful and can be fun to follow, so I don’t mind them in posts either. I’ve linked to Splodge and Splatter in this post (just sayin’!) which is my arty creative blog, which is building up quite a large portfolio of digital creations (‘though it is meant for any creation, I hasten to add (again!)).

With the two ‘! .’ comments, my spider-sense tingled. With the links in their posts, my spider-sense went off the scale. I may be a little too untrusting here, but I’m not going to be visiting those links. Gut feeling tells me not to. Spider-sense also tells me not to. And if they weren’t enough, the ‘! .’ acts as a warning all by itself.

So there.

This has been a:

Six Word Saturday Blogging Service Announcement.

And a Splodge and Splatter advertisement.
