My blog has a wide variety of readers. One of which is a former intern at my current workplace. She's LDS, and has a great sense of humor. She's one of the "normal" mormons (I blog about the wacky ones) and always tries to add some with and mormon-truth to my blog.
Mormon Zone. It is full of LDS jokes, and she thought I could get a tidbit or two for my blog. I spent about an hour on the site, and she was right. I DID get something worthwhile from Mormon Zone!
But not what she expected. You see, most of the jokes were lame. Ultra lame. It had 'top 10' jokes about different LDS scenarios, and talked about their fetish with Jello Salad. While slightly humorous, I didn't really see it as 'blog-worthy.'
However, one super-cool function I found on their site was their cleanliness rating:
Cleanmeter is a website that lets you check the cleanliness of web pages before you go browsing. It is used as a tool for parents to safeguard their children from seeing vulgar and obscene websites.
While I applaud the efforts of cleanmeter, I see this tool more as a toy. I wondered what cleanmeter would say about my blog?
I typed in my url, and this was the result:
Two bits of vulgarity launched me into the mid-yellow range. I'm not sure if I was more surprised at the lack of filth on my site, or the fact that only 2 vulgar references got me into the middle of 'naughty boy' range.
So I tried a few more bloggers I follow:
This is The Animated Woman. She has an amazing blog, and is usually fairly clean. I would consider her blog more child-safe than my own, yet according to cleanmeter her website was considered more dangerous than mine. (I wonder how she will react when she sees this?) One crude anatomical reference is scarier than two vulgarities... interesting...
Jillsmo at Yeah. Good Times. is a little more avant-garde, and it shows on the meter. It catalogs all of her naughtiness, and shows you why I adore her blog so much. This mommyblogger has a mouth, and an amazing sense of humor. But BEWARE!!! She's a scary RED on the meter!!
And then there's Michelle at Rantings of the Reckmonster. She pretty much broke the scale, and I love her for that. You go girl!! Scare them sheltered children!!
