MB for Mature Blog

Let me tie my hair back, here... that's better.

Contrary to most of my other writings about maturity on this blog, I'm not looking to be combative or put a challenge to the games industry in total. I've hardly given up on the quiet crusade, it's just that right here today my attention is much closer to home than an entire theoretical industry. Indeed, my primary focus at the moment is this very blog.

As I'm sure all... okay, so to be perfectly honest, I know the numbers I get well enough to know that perhaps a couple people reading this will have even read my earlier blog posts. So to sum it up, I'm not generally inclined to pull my punches. I've written about lesbians, violent death, what can be learned from porn, depression, and terrible moral choices, but more recently this issue has rather become the elephant in the background of every page.

Yes, I'm referring to the mascots decorating the fringe, and even to some extent the image of that chaos inspired girl that is still probably on the front page. I've kept it all rather tasteful in my opinion, no sex scenes or vaginal closeups, but still the fact remains that nude silhouettes now populate every page of my blog. This creates problems, both for people hoping to read from work, and for people with young children (or very jealous spouses) around at all hours.

I'm not taking them down. The layout of the blog is moving in much the direction I want it to move, even if the current color selection is a bit weird. Despite my small readership, I don't mind at all if people choose to only read through google reader or a similar aggregater, or even simply stop reading all together. It doesn't hurt my feelings or my pocketbook. Not everything is for everybody, and perhaps this just isn't for you, or isn't compatible with your current stage in life, that is all perfectly okay.

However, for the sake of everybody else's right to choose what content does and does not cross their screen, I'm going to put up a certain amount of fair warning. I'm going to turn on the adult content flag in Blogger, so it should give warning prior to my blog that it does contain content that has been socially declared fit only for adults. I can only hope I don't break a couple feed readers in the process.


  1. Sara - stick to your guns! Writing should always be to please you first so your site should always reflect that too.

    I have had plenty of experience of getting caught into the web of writing to please...it really isn't healthy.

    I'll keep reading your site...I just may need a pillow to hide behind ;)

  2. I'm personally really enjoying your site and heading back through the archive slowly (something I dont suggest on my blog as it's rubbish).

    It never occured to me that you'd need the Mature content filter as they are only silhouettes but whatever you think is best for what you have here.

  3. I didn't really even notice the silouettes personally. Your articles and comments got my attention more then they did. After reading this latest one I actually focused in on them and turned my laptop over to get the best view. I see them solely a pure artistic good taste.

    Some of your art is out there, for my tastes but that is what art is all about viewpoints and creativity. I still like them nonetheless. The latest of the girl has me very intrigued w/ the eyes on her hands and what I'm guessing is a small child rolled up in a tail behind her. It is interesting to say the least but I wouldn't really call it provocative.

    I think you're doing a great job on the blog, and have read back quite far into the archives into last year to catch up on what I missed. Sadly, I wasn't even aware of your blog up until a few weeks ago when I was talking with Adam from Witty Ranter podcast about you and your ideas.

    Keep up the good work and stick to your guns. Agamemnon/FOA
