The internet is a wondrous thing – thanks, Mr. Gore! The plethora of information is incredible. At any time of the day or night, you can buy, watch, read, look, or listen to practically anything.
However, it still amazes me what people will put on the internet. Like only the people who will appreciate their “sense of humor” or “personality will see it. Haven’t we learned this is not the case?
Now, I understand that blogs are supposed to be the venue for people to “bear their soul in honesty.” But really, would you walk around the mall naked? Probably not. Posting anything and everything on a website is worse. At least in the mall you have a pretty good idea who is looking at your bare behind. In cyberspace, people can come and go in anonymity. Who knows who is reading about your drunken endeavors, your lunatic rantings, your secret confessionals, and your odd fetishes?
I know who – employers, college professors, colleagues, parents, children, and crazy people.
Try this, google your name and see what comes up. Why? Because people you don’t know do it al the time. It has become a common practice of employers as a means to check you out. And, I am certain that the singles do it too when they meet a new somebody.
I am all for free speech, and I love to blog – just remember that other folks are getting a free read. How much do you really want just anybody to know?
