My blog is rated…

Saw this widget on a book review blog so of course I had to try it.  Warning, if you click it, it may also launch a browser for a dating site, so curb your mouse if you’re leery of that sort of thing (pop up sites and/or dating.)

Surprised it’s G? I am. I thought it would be PG or PG-13 at least. Methinks it’s my landing site which is just a picture and a bit of text. So I gave it the address of the blog page and got this:

Damn. (<<–should have kicked me up to PG right there.)

Now obsessed, I checked my “Books I’ve Read” page. This is how it rates:

Now, I have to laugh. My reading titles are racier than my blog posts.

Testing my YA writing (another blog and pen name), I got this:

Aww come on!

Perhaps this is a problem.  A teaser Tuesday excerpt containing the male character’s saltier language is to blame.

Checking my erotica pen name’s blog, I got:

OK, now something is SERIOUSLY wrong here when my YA writings are naughtier than my erotica writings.

Actually, the logical explanation is that my naughtier pen name blog is almost 100% password protected. The search engine could only read the post titles. I’ll call that a win in terms of sanitizing the appearance for the unauthorized.

Claire’s writings, though, perhaps need a little spicing up, at least this blog.  I’ll work on that (though I suspect my beta readers will laugh when they read this.)

    • Several “hell”s and a couple of f-bombs got me a PG-13 on my YA blog. I’ve since edited out the f-bombs from the manuscript the teasers came from. Oops. But who’d have thunk “puke” would up the rating. Geesh.

  1. Late to the party, I know, but still…

    I have a vague idea what rating my blog would receive. One of the highest search term groups from Google is for Transformers porn. And no, it’s best not to ask why. 😀

    • Well I’m quite sure I have “transformers porn” riddled throughout my blog, yet I still got a G rating, so don’t be surprised if your rating sprouts unicorns and rainbows. LOL Now you know I’m dying to ask about TP.
