Alright people, spill it. Who drops the F bomb on their blog, and who doesn’t? Curious about this since it was brought up on Problogger yesterday.

62 Comments on People Cuss on Their Blogs? What the Fuck? (Weekend Confession Time)

    I don’t on my main blog. I don’t know why – I drop it all the time in conversation. But It’s probably going to show up on my other ones. Just because I can.

    I’ve done it once — and a few WTF’s here and there. I don’t usually swear on my blog because I believe that you can be a good writer w/o cussing (tho I do IRL like a sailor), but the main reason is that my 14 yo niece reads my blog, and I have already gone down in history as having taught her, at age 4, to say, “that sucks.”

    Yeah, so I watch myself. LOL

    I do when I feel like it. I try not to make profanity (in general) a habit, but sometimes it just can’t be helped! And the f-bomb is high on my list of vent words.

    I have been self conscious about it lately actually. If I edit a post it usually comes out.

    Doesn’t feel natural on my blog so no. HOWEVER, twitter is a whole nother world. My peeps know a much less guarded me.

    THANK YOU for the awesome comment. meanwhile I borrowed your tagline the other nite in real life. I was poking fun at my 8 year old daughter b/c her outfit was so random (read: embarassing) and we had to greet an out of town guest at a lovely hotel. as we walked through the lobby I kept saying, “I’m sorry little girl, but why do you keep calling me mommy?”

    it had her in peels of laughter. (peels? or peals? too lazy to look it up)

    I am a big fan of cussing. I’ve cussed on my blog, although I don’t think I’ve use the Fword. yet. but, hey tomorrow’s a new day

    thanks again for the great comment…bloghoppin, cheers!

    Uh, yeah, I do. Good grief, the title of my last post is “Dropping the f-bomb”!

    I do ..but not a lot really and not in a ‘I put it in here cos i am cool’ way….it just works with whatever i am typing…..or not if that is the case.

    I probably swear waaay more irl than I do on the blog.

  11. GHD
    January 25, 2008 at 11:33 pm (10 years ago)

    I try to use swear words sparingly on my blog, but some things just call for a “WTF” or the occasional bi-otch!

    My Mother in Law is a devout Christian and reads my blog faithfully, and I actually love her so cannot bear to offend her sensibilities by cursing in my blog.

    I actually used a dollar sign instead of an “s” a couple of times, and it feels just wrong. But I also don’t want any random pervs getting to my blog through a disturbing search.

  13. Christine
    January 26, 2008 at 12:51 am (10 years ago)

    I was going to say, “Fuck yeah I do!”

    Then I realized that actually, I don’t. I swear IRL all.the.time, but not so much in writing. I think it’s because swearing IRL is fun and a bit of a release…doing so in writing just isn’t the same.

    Interesting. I hadn’t thought about it before.

  14. Deborah
    January 26, 2008 at 1:52 am (10 years ago)

    Definitely, but only if it’s relevent to a post or necessary to make a point.

    Of course swearing is not a stigma here in Ireland like it is in the states. Many of you would be shocked just going to the grocery store and hearing the everyday language here.

    I’ve always been of the principle that saying shoot is the same as saying shit and so on, as you mean the exact same thing. One is just a euphemism for the other. So if you’re not going to swear then don’t swear and that means “freaking” “shoot” and “darn” too. But that’s just me! And I’m a fucking idiot! 😉

  15. Nell
    January 26, 2008 at 6:46 am (10 years ago)

    I swear sometimes. But I think that gratuitous swearing and swearing in context – in your own voice – are different issues. I’m not a fan of swearing for that sake of swearing.

  16. Lis Garrett
    January 26, 2008 at 7:52 am (10 years ago)

    I may cuss in real life in certain instances, but not on my blogs (I may have on occasion). It’s just not the audience I am after. My blogs are family-friendly, and I use them to attract business.

  17. becky
    January 26, 2008 at 8:11 am (10 years ago)

    I guess you could say I do…but I always do WTF or b^itch or along this line! I don’t actually spell out the word. I swear all the time IRL but don’t do it too much on the blog. Want others to be comfortable when reading what I have to say. If WTF helps me make my point better though I will use it!

  18. biodtl
    January 26, 2008 at 8:17 am (10 years ago)

    I swear on my blog all the time. I swear in real life, too, but I tend to censor myself more when speaking, since there are often other people around who I don’t want to expose to swearing. In public, someone could hear me swear whether they want to or not, and that’s not fair to them, so I refrain. But on my blog, no one can inadvertently hear me swear and my tiny audience knows I’m a potty mouth, so I let it all out.

  19. CableGirl
    January 26, 2008 at 8:45 am (10 years ago)

    Well, my whole life I’ve been told I have the mouth of a trucker…so yeah, the “f-bomb” gets dropped. I tend to curse freely when I rant. I have no qualms about it. I figure if someone doesn’t want to read it they don’t have to. 🙂

  20. Average Jane
    January 26, 2008 at 10:20 am (10 years ago)

    I don’t cuss on my blog as often as I do in real life, but there are a few good ones scattered here and there.

  21. amanda
    January 26, 2008 at 10:26 am (10 years ago)

    I swear a frequently. But I tried to stop in my blog after “nasty” came up in one of the google search terms that had brought someone to my site. haha. 🙂

  22. MammaLoves
    January 26, 2008 at 11:17 am (10 years ago)

    I’m pretty sure I have. Not against it, but I probably use it a whole lot more in real life.

  23. Elaine
    January 26, 2008 at 12:00 pm (10 years ago)

    If it fits with with I’m saying, yes. Saying Fuck just to say Fuck is dumb but sometimes, it’s necessary.

  24. Mrs. Schmitty
    January 26, 2008 at 1:08 pm (10 years ago)

    I don’t think I’ve ever actually typed THE word. I think I use WTF some, just to get the point across. But also, don’t quote me, I wouldn’t doubt I may have snuck it in somewhere.

    My dad was a submariner, so, yeah, I’ve been using the f-bomb since age 3. I cuss in my blog, but not gratuitously; only if the story requires it.

  28. Shannanb aka Mommy Bits
    January 26, 2008 at 6:58 pm (10 years ago)

    I don’t cuss in my blog. I use a few choice words offline, but not so much online.

  29. HP
    January 26, 2008 at 9:02 pm (10 years ago)

    I don’t cuss on my blog. Don’t know why, though.

    January 26, 2008 at 10:13 pm (10 years ago)

    Never actually spelled out, though I’ll use WTF or #*$(&#*(. I don’t so much in real life, unless I’m stung by a wasp, so it’d be uncharacteristic of me to on the blog.
    Txx for your comment.

  31. Christine
    January 26, 2008 at 10:21 pm (10 years ago)

    In real life, I often cuss like my mama ain’t listening. But I typically tone it down on my blog. That isn’t to say that I never swear. In fact there are some posts I spill all the good cuss words; especially my post about “It’s my blog, I’ll swear if I want to” or posts about completely idiots in the news (i.e. Britney Spears).

    Not dad is a southern-Baptist pastor and it would keep him up nights talking to his bff JC if I were to ever curse with the abandon that I wish. At the moment I use my blog as a digital baby book of sorts too.
    BUT (and mine is a big one!) it has been hard to keep things in such a formal tone, especially when I’m a fucking sailor in real life!

    January 27, 2008 at 1:45 am (10 years ago)

    I don’t as a regular matter of course, like in regular conversation. But get me ticked off about something and I apparently channel a sailor.

  37. Gayla McCord
    January 27, 2008 at 10:53 am (10 years ago)

    I don’t exactly drop the F Bomb, but I do let readers know that behind the keyboard I’m cussin’ like a sailor.

    I kinda feel like my grandma (God rest her soul) is watching over me and would bitch slap me if I tried to swear too much. 🙂

  38. homemom3
    January 27, 2008 at 11:11 am (10 years ago)

    from time to time I’ve probably said a cuss word on my blog but not often. I too, like Gayla, let my readers know when I’m upset.

  39. Natalie
    January 27, 2008 at 2:07 pm (10 years ago)

    I go back and forth. Right now I’m on a good girl kick where I only say the “lighter” bad words. I actually went back and edited some of my older posts that used the F word. I don’t use it often anyway so when I do it sounds really out of place. I’m working on making my blog something that I would show people who know me. Not that it was bad to begin with.

  40. Mommy Daisy
    January 27, 2008 at 3:42 pm (10 years ago)

    I guess I get to be the goodie-two-shoes. I don’t cuss! Not on my blog. Not in real life. I never did, and I don’t plan to start. How’s that for honest? 😉

  41. Mrs. Mustard
    January 27, 2008 at 8:37 pm (10 years ago)

    In my posts, I don’t hold back. Post titles, though, I tend to replace certain vowels with *.

  42. Bananas
    January 27, 2008 at 9:08 pm (10 years ago)

    Not on my blog… somehow it always comes off as gratuitous to me. In real life, you bet.

  43. JaniceNW
    January 27, 2008 at 10:18 pm (10 years ago)

    I hear the *f* word way too much from my teens so I tend not to use it on my blog. I like the word freaking and the WTF acronym.

  44. hamiam
    January 28, 2008 at 9:07 am (10 years ago)

    Sometimes….depends. I agree wholeheartedly with Southern Belle’s stance.

  45. justmylife
    January 28, 2008 at 11:00 am (10 years ago)

    Sometimes, it really depends on my mood. I try to watch myself when my kids are around, I slip and when I do one of them will point it out, its just something I don’t do a lot around them. But my blog is different, if the word fits my mood I will use it.

    January 29, 2008 at 9:06 pm (10 years ago)

    Guilty. But I’m trying to scale it down. Now that I know my kid’s friends are reading me. It’s bad enough they know I have nipple rings. Knowing I have a potty mouth makes it even harder to look them in the eye…

    I’m a cusser but much less on my blog. The F bomb doesn’t flow as much on paper for me as it does when I speak.

  52. Honeybell
    February 2, 2008 at 10:16 pm (10 years ago)

    I do. Then I feel guilty for all of the nice upstanding Christian mommies that read me. Then I just say Fuck it. They shouldn’t come here then. Then I feel guiltier. I clearly have some issues.

    I’m not much of a cusser. I try to avoid it in my blog and comments on other blogs (especially comments) I recognize that cussing can offend others, while the lack of cussing will never offend.
    BTW – I am not offended by cussing

    Sometimes I swear with gay abandon and other times, not so much. It depends on my mood, but I certainly don’t censor myself.

  56. Married Leos
    February 7, 2008 at 10:47 am (10 years ago)

    Yeah, I will drop an F bomb or three when its appropriate and I am trying to get my point across.

  58. darrin
    February 9, 2008 at 10:08 pm (10 years ago)

    I never do. Although, sometimes when I do an unfavorable review on my site, the “F” bomb would definitely enhance certain points I’m trying to get across! LOL!!

    Hellz ya I do! I tried not cussing when I first started my blog but the honest truth is that I just can’t do it. I’m a foul-mouthed bitch and tend to let people know. 🙂
