Random Bit of Trivia That May Interest Only Me

Carrie tells the world who her intended audience is:
There are a few parts I find offensive, but I would expect those parts to also curl the toes of my Protestant audience. I expect these types of posts to be a "preaching to the choir".
Caveats: we don't know that her intended audience is always the same when she posts at Beggars All, but we do know that this is the same intended audience on her own blog. We don't know, though, that it's the same for the other folks who post there at Beggars All.

It's good to have this laid out explicitly. If I had to guess, I'd say that the others who post at Beggars All intend the same audience as well. This matters, because it ought to inform how we react to her posts.

I'd really like to see some reaction to the Spurgeon sermon excerpts I just posted there and see what the "intended audience" thinks.

Heh. I haven't read them yet, but let me give you a tip about putting links in a comment.

The HTML tag for doing so is the letter a with "<" on the left (no spaces) and ">" on the right. But there's one trick to it. You put the URL in double quotes (", not ') inside the *opening* "a" tag, like this:

<a href="URL_HERE">And this is the 'pretty text' for the link</a> (don't forget the closing tag)

I would give you sample text for the link you posted there, but I couldn't get a page that displayed that sermon, unfortunately (and the one place that mentioned that sermon didn't have it converted to HTML yet). However, here's an example that points at google:

<a href="http://www.google.com">Google</a>

And here it is, working:

Google

I hope it helps!
