I began this blog in January of 2008. For the past 13 years, and in 1,680 posts, I have tried to write content that is positive, encouraging, and perhaps even a bit inspirational.
Imagine my surprise when my Friday inbox included a notice from The Google that my post titled, "Birthday Cards," was deemed to contain unacceptable content. Birthday cards! Pictures of birthday cards! You've seen the cards I make. Have you ever found them to have any sort of unacceptable content?
The following day, they notified me that after further study, they decided to allow the post to be reinstated. However, it was not returned to my active blog. It had reverted to "draft" status. I reread it. It was short and sweet and harmless. I don't dare activate it again, since I'll likely be awarded a second black mark from almighty google for my errant ways.
And so, it seems the time has come for me to say goodbye.
I have enjoyed my blogging experience, but I enjoy freedom from censorship more.
