Too Much Trouble

The first year I did this challenge, back in 2018, I signed up formally on the official register of the A to Z Blogging Challenge under the Category of Other and Miscellaneous and I was not sure if I was supposed to link back to a specific blog or something like that, so after the signup, I was on my own.  I participated 4 more years informally and unofficially and I plan to do that again this year the same way.  Basically, I am going to look at the bloggers that show up in my Reader and if their topics interest me, then I will read their posts.  I guess it would be a great way for a new blogger to meet other like-minded bloggers by going official and joining in with a group, but with this being my sixth year, I am beyond that now.  I chose an obscure topic this year and I am not sure if anyone will want to read my posts and I don’t blame them as math and science is not for everyone, but I am enjoying the research and I mostly write for my own enjoyment.

The first year when I did officially sign up, I had to answer a question that asked me if I was planning to use adult content in my posts, which puzzled me a bit, so I clicked on the link to find out how adult content was defined and I got the following: “Excessive Violence — If your blog reads like a how-to guide for Hannibal Lecter, you have excessive violence.  If you’ve written the A to Z guide of how to beat up anyone, make bombs, and kill without detection, you have excessive violence.”  Ok so far, so good, then it went on: “Nudity for sexual purposes — If you write erotica, you have adult content.  This gets tricky with art blogs.  If you fall into a gray area, ask the challenge hosts for a ruling before April.” Again, that is not me and then finally it explained: “Strong and frequent harsh language — If the F word is being used as a verb, or it is used more than three times in a blog post, that is considered adult content.  If your every blog post drops at least three curse words, that is adult content.  Adult Content blogs are not written for children.  The purpose of the rating is to protect the young and those sensitive to such topics.  Those people are not the core audience for such blogs, would not follow such blogs, and possibly present legal trouble if they land on adult blogs.  The hosts and their volunteer teams take on the responsibility of keeping the challenge safe and legal for everyone.  Please be respectful of this.”  I didn’t think this was going to be a problem for me!
