    :helpy I'm working on an art piece for February's challenge that includes a poem I wrote - and the poem contains a cuss word (not any of the f ones, surprisingly enough :giggle). I'm guessing I should blur the word on the upload, and asterisk it in the description, but shouldn't I be a do-bee and ask first?

    So, what's the policy for vulgar words in journaling?

    Hi Brenda! Thanks for asking about this! We try to keep the forums and gallery relatively family-oriented. We do have some semi-active users and posters that are under the age of 18, so "family friendly" is where we like to lean. Having said that, you can use your judgment. If the word isn't in bold, big letters and isn't something that jumps out and bites you in the nose, it's probably okay to have on your page. If you are in doubt, you can post it and tag me or Laura (@lmccandless) and we can make a determination on a case-by-case basis.

    Awesome, thanks so much. It's not big or a stand-out but I'll go ahead and blur/censor anyway, just to be safe.

    This is what I usually do, just in case little eyes are looking. I have a weather app that I love to screenshot and share on my PL pages, but it's super inappropriate sometimes, which makes me giggle, but I know not everyone appreciates it the same way I do :giggle.

    I know my kids will look back on my uncensored pages when I'm gone and say "Yep, that's mom" :giggle

    My hubby has that What the Forecast app and will randomly arrive in my office (we work together) laughing about a new funny one. There were some real gems a couple weeks ago when we had that polar vortex. :giggle

    And now I'm off to check out your poem @blueberries

    I’d always wondered what the app was - one of my friends shares screenshots of the weather from it on facebook all the time
