MY SEMIANNUAL RANT


                                  MY SEMIANNUAL RANT

Peeps, something is bothering me. For several days I've been  disturbed by what was happening to my blog, and no place I searched could help me.

You see, when writing for several years on my blog 'steveroni' about AA stuff, I used to have 40-60 visitors a day. A blog-friend created for me "The Fourth Dimension", about 18 months ago. More or less I slipped into writing--Well...pretending to write, but nevertheless enjoying--poetry. My daily traffic went to an average of 12 to 30 'hits' a day.

OK, the problem: SUDDENLY about a week ago, number of people clicking on my blog jumped from that 12-30 hits, to 60, 70, then 90+ a day. You know me, alcoholic-thinking (not drinking!) Steve. I figured people were simply enamored with my "flawless" poetic pronouncements--grinning and LOLing!

Well, yesterday I did a little investigating using a 'peep-counter' app named Site-Meter. It gives me information about what search words were used to find my blog. Lo and behold, 3 out of 5 visitors used search word(s) 'children' or 'images-children' and were directed right to a blog I posted June 8, titled "HAPPY CHILDREN". It is no more than a copied page from Kahlil Gibran's "PROPHET". Gibran makes so much sense to me--who, in the past, was an active drunk and very poor father. Three photos of 'happy' children are included at bottom of post.

Are you following where I'm going with this? When I realized who the "new" people (cannot call them by my favorite word 'Peeps') are, I almost puked: some, probably most of them predators, or gatherers of child porn. (See, I still judge people!)

I'm leaving the post up (it is linked above) until Friday night. if anybody wants to see what I considered a so pure, even spiritual post, click the link. Saturday morning I'll remove it, along with this rant. I am SO ANGRY--and that is NOT how I am--any more! Thank you for reading. Lesson is--for me--use Prudence when choosing a title. I sure did not set out to be a Satan messenger.

NOTE: I am NOT "Mr Clean" as you might guess (HA!)...and mud is mud. On the other hand, horse manure IS horse manure!

Said in haughty manner, nose turned up:
"I DO have my principles!" --grin!
PEACE! (sigh...)

  1. Precisely why I no longer will post pictures of my kids. The few times I did? THAT is exactly what happened. Sick fu**ers.

    Love to you, sober friend...

  2. You cannot make a conclusion based on that. Perhaps it may have been a project or homework looking for happy children. You are not going to believe the searches that lead to my blog. Plus every three to four hours spammers from China and India visit my blog via Washington DC and leave spam comments. Fortunately, Blogger automatically blocks them. However, there are indeed perverts everywhere so do not post your cute photograph when you were a little boy running around naked in the farm.

    1. That homework assignment would have had to be for 187 students in 47 countries Ces--Funny there was 7-day lapse, between my posting and the sudden jump in ONE DAY of traffic from 23 to 79...and it is still "up" there.

      Guess they will all get A+ on the research, in maybe 13 different languages--grin!!!

  5. Well, this certainly makes one think doesn't it??? There are so weird and queer people out there in the world.. Well. I am hear for the story. And I enjoyed and learned something... I believe I will get that Site -Meter also now.

  6. The world has become a wicked place these last couple of thousand years or so. Makes me sad.

  7. I don't allow my blog to be found via search engines; thus i avoid stuff like weird people finding me..through something innocent, the likes of what you posted.

  8. And maybe lots of peeps saw an interesting blog, you know, you are just being recognized as an interesting blogger. I don't believe we can just assume that what's happening here is CP types looking for fresh flesh.

  9. You should edit that post, still use the happy children label but change the image to that of Janet Nepolitano and call it "TSA: Groping happy children" and another image of Barack Obama witht he following captions: Obamacare: gonna be screwing happy children" You will definitely get thousands of hits in a day!

  10. Good of you to reveal those bastards. Amongst other things they should have been prohibited ever to have a computer again.
    A child psychologist, family therapeutic and an eager member of our local church was two years ago revealed to have in his possession the greatest child porn collection in our countries history.
    He has three children himself and he hasn't spent a day in jail.
    If one single picture can get you that amount of hits, how completely loco and hungry for more and more literally and blood flesh aren't those vampires?

  14. This is very hard to realize, that there are such people amongst us. I had something like that happen, too. And it still does. I see the search terms that people use, and I could vomit. There are either some really immature peeps out there, teenagers who are just farting around, or there are some real perverts reading our blogs.

    I remember a few years ago, when I was writing a novel (since abandoned) about some bdsm themes, and I had so many weird people come 'visit' that I deleted 24 blog entries...and also wrote what I thought about bdsm. Of course, I wasn't a popular person....I think it falls into a horrible perversion, especially for women, regardless what people think, but I had to go through a short period of investigation to write this novel.

    Even with the trashing of 24 well thought out posts....I still have people visiting that I wish wouldn't. We can't control the world out there.

    You are right to rant. So many times what we write is taken into a perverted corner. And we are surprised.

    1. HAHAHA! So YOU'RE the one "googling' this stuff????--grin!

      Get some sleep. Now, whoever googles "HAPPY CHILDREN"...won't find my version, which has disappeared--just moments ago. But they MIGHT find my 'rant'...

      Ces, I have not been to your blog(s) much, because I never get anything else done. Just become immersed, ya know?

    2. Yayayayayaya! Poor excuse. I have not been by much either nor visit many blogs because I have been exhausted from work and anxious from my medical visits. Sigh. Aging is not for sissies and I am a sissy!!!

    4. I am LOVING to age, Ces! It is not without trials...but what the "H". Of course, being retired makes difference. Maybe?

      It is sure GREAT to be so popular on the Internet. NOW I can advise people how to run up their visitor numbers! (I guess they already know. Well, thank God...that GOD is in charge, and in the end, all will be OK!

  18. Damn it, peep. This is not something i was expecting to read… as a mother i still cannot get to understand what makes so many people be so perverse.. . ill----what lack and need they had or have that makes them get whatever pleasure to see or read or… hell t them
    It’s time the world makes the necessary changes… it’s maybe time for big wars or disasters… it’s maybe time.. for Mother Nature to start getting rid of.
    Go check my sitemeters- will you?

    Love and peace.

    1. Well, I believe this incident is finish now. BEHIND, I hope. You KNOW how disgusting this is to me, after my early life. This made me relive all over again some ugliness.

      I think it's time for me to make a nice love poem for d'Verse this coming week, maybe redo something from the past, like a lot of you Peeps.
      Thanks for reading and commenting--I'm honored, believe me!
      PEACE! oh, and yes...love!

  19. My mother told me that we went to church because we wanted to celebrate God as a community with our fellow believers, not to honor the priest who is human and therefore fallible. He is like any human male or female prone to commit some of the most egregious crimes even though we expect more from them like we expect more from those whose calling give them a certain level of authority, like a doctor, nurse, governor, president...any human being who commits to serve, lead or heal their fellow beings. It is trust that we give them and our trust that they betray because they are sinners like we are.

  23. Oh wow... it gives me the chills.
    I also track my visitors, and a lot of the new ones have been searching the web for: "Thank you." I laugh as more and more people search for those two words, I don't know why. I guess it's a good thing :-)
