Spam Much?


Do you ever have one of those days when you just don't know what to blog about?  You are literally drawing a blank, and may even think, "Have I lost my blogger's 'Mojo'?"  I felt that way this morning.  Perhaps it is because the kids are back in school and I am once again forced to get up early.  And then, I was given a gift!  A gift of...spam???  Spam, the gift that keeps on giving!  And giving!  

I turned on my computer, as I normally do in the morning and as usual I checked my email.  And there it was, another comment for little old me!  Yay!  And then I opened it up.  It was spam!  You know the kind, "Hi, I'm new here!  I love your site." url url url some kind of body enhancer (enlarger) url url url.  I also get stuff in foreign languages.  Like Chinese lettering or something of that sort.  They could be telling me jump off a bridge for all I know!  It just frustrates me.  I delete it.  It comes back.  Spam is like flies.  You think you got them all and then two more show up!  
So does this mean I will have a weekly gripe about a pet peeve?  I don't know.  I mean it's nice to get it off your chest, but I don't want to be a total grouch!  But then, Oscar had it going on!

Hopefully it will pass quickly. I had a time where I started to get some spam on my blog but after a week it was gone. So hopefully that is the case with you too.

I was in such a blogging rut, but I suddenly have a million posts all in draft waiting to go :) So it will come don't worry

I don't get it on my blog. Weird? But I do get it in e-mail. In French.

I've had the chinese thing too but it didn't last long.

How can you possible doubt your mojo when you can find visuals like that SPAM picture? Totally cringeworthy!

Love Oscar. Somebody has to counterbalance Elmo.

I get spam now that I'm on WP but I have a spamcatcher that has caught all of it. It's so annoying!

I get spam on my blog and in my email account(s). Very frustrating!

I think getting spam means you have really "arrived". I'm jealous!

I get a ton of spam in my personal e-mail but on the blog nothing. I am glad.
Spam basically sucks!
