Here's the thing about food blogs, or blogs of any kind for that matter. Sometimes people come to your blog for all the wrong reasons and sometimes you get some really strange comments...
After noticing the influx of traffic, I saw that I had a comment awaiting moderation*:
Sea Glass candy. Historically, it's been a popular post - I've seen it pinned on Pinterest a few times - frankly, it's pretty awesome (and I can say that without a hint of humility because I didn't come up with the recipe or the photos - it was all the work of my friend Kira who agreed to let me share it on my blog). The comment goes on to suggest that if the previous commenter wants a "tee-nth of the blue" then she's "gotta pay for it like everyone else."
Okay. Well, that's strange - it's not so much about Sea Glass Candy or even Kira's awesome photos - it's referencing Meth and believe me, I was confused. So I poked around a little and realized that 99% of the traffic was coming from one website. I followed the link to a discussion page on someone's Halloween costume - not just any costume, though, a costume for the main character from "Breaking Bad." If you've never seen the show, it's all about an out of work science teacher who starts a meth lab. And here's the kicker - the folks over there talking about this guy's costume had posted a link to Kira's candy because it looked just like the stuff they use on the show to simulate crystal meth. Um...yeah. So thanks "Breaking Bad" fans for all the hits, I guess, and now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
