I used to follow a really nice blog about a dog.
An old English sheepdog who lived in Scotland. Some of you may know the blog I mean. After the dog died his owners deleted the blog.
Yesterday evening I was doing a bit of lazy blogging and noticed that the link to the old dog blog was still there on a friend’s blog. I no longer have it on my list of blogs so I clicked just out of curiosity. (I think that in the back of my mind I was wondering if they had got themselves another dog.)
The link for this blog now takes you to the kind of website that I personally would never want to visit.
It looks like some devious and unpleasant people have used the old dog blog address to peddle their garbage, maybe in the hope of picking up accidental traffic (although that couldn’t amount to much surely) or maybe as the only way they can get their material out there. What do I know. I don’t usually look at stuff like this so I don’t know how devious people have to be.
Anyway, if you used to follow a really nice blog about an old English sheepdog who lived in Scotland with his owners, you might want to check if it’s still on your blog roll or in your profile. I hope you have a strong stomach.
Periodically I tidy up my blog by deleting any links to old or deleted blogs. Now I’m glad I did !!
On the home front, we are very busy and somewhat bemused. Totally flummoxed and in headless chicken mode.
In the space of four days we have sold our house and bought another one in the UK. We found the perfect small house to keep here and, even more fortunately, it’s currently empty. It’s also been recently renovated and we will be the first to enjoy the new plumbing, electrics, carpets and decorating.
That will make life so much easier if we can move the stuff we want to keep in the UK straight into a house rather than having to do a double shuffle by putting stuff into storage intended for two different destinations.
Tidying up has therefore paid off on two counts. My blog is (I hope) porn free and the house is sold.
I have however run out of fingers and toes to keep crossed !!
Have a great week !!
