Announcing Pass the Spam
Let’s face it spam comments are just one of those things bloggers must put up with. Hopefully you are like me and most of it winds up in a special spam folder and not actually posted on your blog.
Because an occasional real comment gets stuck there I always take the time to scan through before consigning them all to virtual deletion. It always seems that there are one or two that make me laugh and I recently started sharing them with Grandma who always appreciates a good laugh.
Since we have such fun sharing and mocking our spam I thought it would be fun to start a little meme honoring the best of our spam gems.
The rules are simple:
- Choose your favorite spam comment of the week. I started a document holding all the gems I find.
- Strip the spam of any links or urls – we’re not trying to generate any business for them.
- Post it on your blog.
- Stop by Calico Contemplations every Tuesday and add your post link to the linky so we can all get a chuckle.
Don’t be afraid to share the surrounding circumstances of the spam, sometimes that’s the best part. One of my favs congratulates me on my excellent writing for a Wordless Wednesday. I look forward to seeing what you have to share, now on to more succinct matters…
