Old ladies don’t blog — or do they?

Filed under: Language, Uncategorized — furtherglory @ 1:50 pm

There used to be a commercial for “Visiting Angels” which showed an attractive old woman sitting in front of a computer while a young girl, who was a “Visiting Angel” sat beside her, helping her with her computer.

At one point, in the commercial, the old lady said something about her “blog.”  After a few days, the word “blog” was cut out of the commercial — probably because many people called in to complain that old women do not blog.

I am an old woman of 84 and I have been blogging for many years. So old women do have blogs. Be careful about what you say because some old woman might blog about it.


  1. You deleted the comments before I could reply. Oh well.

      I don’t know your name, nor where you live. I don’t know if you are a man or a woman. I don’t know if you are a teenager or if you are living in an old folks home. I don’t want to put everything that I have written in the last 10 years into your hands. As I explained before, my computer is backed up by a company that I have been dealing with for 20 years.

      • I am just “k0nsl”, from Scandinavia — a man, a revisionist, and in my thirties. I have been involved in revisionism since I was just 14 years old — by the time I was 15 I created my first web page on the subject, in English. It was a rather successful one too in terms of content and visitor count.
        A so-called anti-racist organization in Sweden known as “EXPO” wrote an article in 2007, in their paper, which I have reproduced at the link below. It might answer some other questions with regards to who I am and what I do.

        See this link for the article:

        At any rate, anyone can mirror / backup your blog on their own without any input from you. But it would be more difficult. And since you do not want your blog to be saved for posterity then I will heed that wish. Woebegone!

        • As I read this, I recalled that you had sent me this in the past. As I said before, my blog is backed up by WordPress. I do not want any more backup of my blog. Thank you for offering, but I don’t need your help.

          • You’re welcome. Have a good day, ma’m.

            Best wishes,

  2. I am replying to my own comment, in order to add something more. I recall that you offered to back up my blog once before, in the dim past. This worries me. I am curious as to why you want to back up my blog, when it is already backed up.

    • I suppose that Germany and France would have to make my blog unavailable in their countries

      I was more asking if, or the owner of the server hosting your blog, would comply with such a request, the way FB and TWTR currently do — if a major content host like FB or TWTR instead said ‘No, we will not selectively censor content to meet your demands — we’ll make our entire service unavailable in your countries’, I wonder if the German and French authorities would back down?
