For The Love Of The Internet!

Hey Everyone,

Today is not a beauty related post, just letting you know right off the bat. 
Although it still concerns you. You may have seen googles logo today, or maybe you didn't see it because it's blacked out. It's a censor bar.

There are two bills going around congress right now: SOPA and PIPA. I don't consider myself an expert on this at all but basically what it means is that the government is going to censor the internet. 

If you haven't hear about it you can read about it here:

Wikipedia has shut down their site to raise awareness about this:

CNN also has a story on other websites raising awareness:

Who knows my very own blog (not that too many would be concerned) could be changed! If you believe in freedom of speech, and you don't want to be censored on what you can say I hope you will get involved! Other youtubers could change as well! 

Think there's nothing you can do, think again!

*Please ask parents permission first if you are under 18*

1. Educate yourself and others about this issue!

2. Sign the google petition!

3. Encourage others to do the same!

4. Contact your local representatives and make your voice heard! 

Thank you all for reading this blog, I hope you get involved!

  1. Although I have a strong opinion about people downloading illegally as "stealing" from the person(s) involved in making the film, song etc I will have to vote those two out as they aren't general enough and are trying to effect freedom of ANY speach.

    It's not just about censorship though.
