Burned Yellow Musical Pony

I'm going to break from my usual posting habit to tell you about a lady who has been searching desperately for a replacement for a stuffed yellow musical pony that was burned up in a house fire in 1997. It was all I could do to keep from crying, just thinking about how much this toy must mean to her to keep looking for it so desperately for so many years.

I'm hoping to spread the word about her search as far across the Internet as I possibly can, so would you please read her story on our Plush Memories blog? If you can add any information about the toy, that would be great! Otherwise, would you please post something on your blog, similar to this, linking back to her request?

(If you use tags, would you please use this tag?)

Does Profanity Bother You???

Our position on sexually explicit pictures is pretty easy to understand. But there still seems to be some confusion about the position the BLOG VILLAGE TopList takes on Profanity.

For instance, this comment was made on a forum recently:
I guess I'm just not understanding why the profanity can't be in post titles, but can be in posts.
This was my answer:

The idea is to have blogs that can be on the monitor with the children in the room, without being concerned about what they are seeing. It's not meant to censor what an adult is reading. Each member of the Village can decide for themselves if they want to read those blogs that have profanity within the posts or not.

I hope that helps a little.

We continue to grow. As of this writing, we have 97 active blogs! We're looking forward to many more bloggers joining us.

Sweet Land of Liberty

I'm thankful that I live in a country where we have Freedom of Speech, where we are free to say what we want to and show the pictures we choose to on our blogs, as long as they do not break the law.

I uphold the right that any blogger has to use profanity in any way they see fit in their blog.

I uphold my right to not have to read those blogs that use profanity and sexually provocative pictures in a way that is not comfortable for me personally.

God Bless America!!!
