Social Media Brought Us Together But I'm Now Conscientiously Unplugging From Your Feed

 There is something people rarely comment about in our circles and I am tired of being a blogger and lumped into this pot of crazy that no one seems to want to talk about.  This isn’t about photo rights.  It is about children’s rights.There are endless posts about using another person's photo online without their EXPRESS PERMISSION.  You cannot just link to the original image and name them.  You need permission.  ...more

I Ended Hundreds of (Twitter) Relationships, and I'm Glad I Did!

The other day, I broke up with hundreds of people. I did it. I bit the bullet. I took that needed step and just did it. I was the one picking up the slack in these one-sided relationships, the one carrying most of the burden and I just couldn't take it any longer. I deserved more, and I knew it. I looked at the list of people, groups, and businesses I was following on Twitter and checked which ones were also following me back.

Single and Singled Out! What NOT to do at Weddings

 When you get invited to a wedding and you're single, you panic. Period. Many visions of nightmare situations start bouncing around in your head. Where am I going to be seated? Will I be asked to bring a guest, if so should I bring one? What if I am not asked to bring a guest? Maybe I will be dating someone by then? The list goes on and on. ...more

Have you ever deleted a comment?

I’ve deleted comments, yes I have, but not for the reasons you may be thinking. Some spam made it thru the Aksimet spam filter. So they just had to go!The one question to consider here is about freedom of speech. Deleting comments is very subjective and the decision to delete comments should have to do with the vision you hold for your site or blog.  Off course you could also delete comments because you don’t like them. But if this is the case then don’t invite comments. ...more

Who owns the comments section? A story.

Who owns the comments section - the blog owner or the blog reader?I recently read a post on an professional community site that publishes posts by its members. This site has a disclaimer at the bottom of the post that states that the opinions represent those of the author and not of the specific organisation; the content is member contributed and that publishing on its site does not imply that they endorse it....more
