Wordless Wednesday – #SOPAblackout

by Susan


In support of the #SOPAblackout, 5 Minutes for Mom will not be posting any new content today. For more information, you can read our post about SOPA and PIPA, Stop Internet Censorship – Oppose PIPA and SOPA. And, if you want to join the SOPA strike to protest SOPA and PIPA, you can find out how to strike by blacking out your site.

Mom Bloggers (and Dad Bloggers too!) post a photo on your site, link up and find others… Wordless Wednesday is tons of fun. (And I know it says “wordless” but I just can’t bear to not write anything! If I had created it, I probably would have named it something different! LOL So feel to link up your word-full or word-less Wednesday photos!)

Leave the URL to your photo (clearly mine are never truly “wordless”) and then visit others!

Here is a fun thumbnail linky:

And here is a basic linky if you prefer your linkies the good old fashioned way!

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

Did you know that Janice and I actually started out online with toy stores? Yes and we still have them. One of our favorite gift ideas for a child’s birthday is an educational kids rug that inspires play and learning. They are surprisingly affordable.

now I feel guilty for linking up on a blackout day…. but it’s true, they can’t take away our freedoms.

5 Mimi January 18, 2012 at 12:33 am

Having been off Facebook and off the television and mostly off the computer for the last two weeks, I have no idea what this is. But I’m off to inform myself. Thanks for hosting anyway….

I haven’t heard about this yet, very interesting. Thanks for the info!

We blocked out our headers/logo on our websites today and my Wednesday post went up early. Unreal what SOPA proposes to do and how it could destroy the internet as we know it.

I’ve heard a bit about the bill on NPR but not enough to really care one way or the other.


14 PeaceLoveTerri January 18, 2012 at 9:35 am

Happy Wednesday :)
Let’s hope the black out does more god than bad!


15 Cruz Merkling January 19, 2012 at 12:13 am

If you could e-mail me with a few suggestions on how you made your website look this excellent, I would be grateful.

Good post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It’ll at all times be stimulating to learn content material from other writers and observe a little something from their store. I’d choose to make use of some with the content material on my weblog whether or not you don’t mind. Natually I’ll offer you a link in your web blog. Thanks for sharing.
