Liz Tells Frank About Our New Spoiler Warnings On Posts!
A fair note I’ve gotten over the last year or so (ever since the release of the first Liz Tells Frank eBook, actually) is that people — who are not you — worry about reading posts if they’re not already familiar with what I’m telling you about.
This is because they worry about spoilers. Personally, I very much understand this concern! I hate spoilers, if I’m not in the mood to be spoiled. Because being spoiled HE WAS DEAD THE WHOLE TIME is the worst.
If every Liz Tells Frank entry was like MoviePooper.com, that’d be fair. However, a common Liz Tells Frank misconception is that every entry is soaked in spoilers. Many are not!
Many are, in fact, specifically written to encourage humble readers who are not even you, Frank, to explore the subject matter. This includes the ever-popular Skip It/Watch It Guides — a much-appreciated public service (as far as my WordPress stats indicate).
Bearing all this in mind, a couple of weeks ago I enlisted the help of the vunderbar WordPress developer Joe Crawford to create a SPOILER WARNING system for every Liz Tells Frank installment, visible right at the top of every blog post! Look at the top of this very post you’re reading right now! Rad, am I right?!?
A quick guide to the parameters follows:
GREEN: Totally safe — which is honestly an indication that you should very much check out whatever’s being told. Because if I don’t want to ruin it for you or others, Frank, that’s a good sign.
YELLOW: Let’s do this metaphor-style — A few eggs get broken, but just a few eggs, enough to make a half-size omelette. You know, enough to whet someone’s appetite.
RED: You wanna know what happens? You’re gonna learn what happens. Because everyone seriously needs to know.
So, Liz Tells Frank now accommodates the world’s ever-present spoiler fears! Because it cares about your needs. It really does.
Even your needs, Frank. For realsies.
