Very interesting. I love your blog too, it is fantastic!! I added it to my blogroll so I can visit more often! Have a great weekend!

Hilarious! Digging scored 0.2%---in the "darnit" range. Oops, just added another one to your score, Colleen. ;-)

Well, congratulations!! :-) I came in at a paltry 0.5%.

I tested at 0.8%. It must have been the time I said "durn raccoons".

Or maybe it was something someone left in a comment. I'd find this more interesting if I knew the criteria--the list of words they were testing for--and more specific results--posts that were flagged.

Well I'm embarrassed by my low score. I'm going to have to start cussing like a sailor if I want to be cool like you. :-)

I think that other than using the word "crap" for the first time this week, I really don't curse on my blog ever. I do say "pissed off" occasionally though. Does that count?

Anthony---
I'm pretty sure "pissed off" counts. I say that one a lot too.

Don't be embarrassed. I have a whole bunch of practice swearing in all types of situations ;-)

I checked my auxilliary blog where I keep my hoe collection post and it got a 1.9%. Still nowhere near Colleen! And my grandma's diary blog scored 0%. That's good, as I don't think I ever heard her cuss.

Lots of durn good fun.

If you think 4% is impressive, you'll barely be able to stand upright after looking at mine.

28.5%, baby. Oh yeah.

Though I'm surprised: I expected lower.

Well, shit. ;-) You have me afraid I'm being way too boring on my blog! Maybe I need to rabble-rouse a bit...teehee.

(Oops, that probably didn't help my rating, did it? I wonder if it upped you to 5% tho!? lol.)

Carol---too funny! It is probably a good thing that your grandma's diary scored a 0% :-)

mr_subjunctive---I should have thought to check yours!! I was trying to think of other gardenbloggers who swear more than I do. Very impressive! :-)

Kim---I'll give you a "well, shit" comment on your blog, that way we'll even it out :-)

LetsPlant--Thank you!

Pam, Nancy, and MSS---well, come on now--I expect to see some swearing on your blog. We have to at least get you up to a solid 1% ;-)

We will beat you! You've thrown the gauntlet, and we will rise to the challenge. .2% is not a heavy lift.

Seriously, Susan and I have often discussed how we'd like to cuss more, but feel the gardening blog world is (a good thing) much kinder and gentler in that way than the rest of the blogs we know.

Some blogs I read would easily rise to 35%-40.

Eliz--

Yep, a few of the ones I read are well in that range. Naomi Dunford, who was the one who introduced me to the cuss-o-meter on twitter, has a rating of 99.5% on her blog, ittybiz.com.

I don't swear as often as I'd like. If I did, you Ranters wouldn't have a chance of catching me :-)

The garden blog world is much gentler than the rest of the blogosphere. That is a good thing, but there's nothing wrong with shaking things up a tiny bit, either ;-)

I'm at 3.2% and I have to say, I'm shocked. I purposely censor myself so I don't put off garden blog readers who seem to be a little more civilized conversants than I am on a day to day basis. That and my parents read my blog and though he may be a motherf---er, my dad is pretty conservative.

I've realized that I don't write like I talk - and the CussOMeter proved it 0% - My mother would be proud but I'm feeling a bit fuddy-duddy. . . . Thanks Garden Rant for leading me to Colleen's blog!

I'm only 0.8%? Wow - I'd better step it up a notch!
