It’s happening again…. my search terms on my blog are showing some alarming things.
It appears that there are many out there who regularly type “tween selfies” into search engines and find themselves at my blog.
I am horrified that this is continuing to happen.
Today I was going to blog about “Happiness” and instead I find myself blogging about my feelings of horror at this time.
There is much to be said for correctly tagging your posts however the other night after looking at my stats, I typed “tween selfies” into google images and the first image I found was one of my tween with the cat.
I have since gone through my blog and deleted the post that was all about my tween and her selfie photos. Unfortunately it is also the post that featured her beautiful art work. I will continue to talk about her (she’s a Teen this year lol) but there will be no further photos unless her face is not recognisable. I can’t believe that I have to take steps to do this.
I have also removed any tags that say ‘tween’ or ‘selfie’ from my posts. I have had over 200 hits on the post I wrote about “Internet – Friend or Foe” in the past week alone. This post is the one in which I talked about the issue of selfies. All images (and no, they weren’t of my daughter) have been removed from that post also. Now I need to warn my daughter once again about the perils of the internet.
What does this say about society today? Whilst it is absolutely wonderful that the internet has evolved into something that is fabulous and allows us all to touch base with people across the world in real time, it has proved once again just what a dangerous tool it can be in the wrong hands. I’m devastated.
Like every blogger I love to see my blog hits increase however if this is the kind of traffic arriving at my site, I would rather that my hits drop.
Okay, this is a short one today. I am upset, appalled and yes – HORRIFIED.
Please all, take care with your blogs – and particularly your tagging.
