What is up

with people going private on their blogs?
Isn't the point of a blog to announce to the world how awesome you are?
Just kidding. I understand some people need to take precautions with their life... but
it cracks me up when these same people keep 3587000 of their closest friends on their facebook/myspace where they feature pictures of their new baby, house with address, give explicit intimate details of their life, offer up their credit card, social security number...

Luckily for me, i don't have a facebook/myspace (praise the lord!) and i really have nothing of interest that the whole world couldn't know about me... really. ask me anything and i will just tell you.

AND...
this may just be a rumor that is going around to scare people- but i heard potential employers are now checking facebook and myspace pages to see what kind of person you REALLY are..... dun dun dun.

Is that why you switched out the picture of slippers for cupcakes? Which is making me hungry, btw.

the cupcakes are for valentine's day silly.

You know you want to get on facebook. j/k. The "private" thing is ironic to me as well...but I know people have their reasons.

I miss the slippers. They were pretty cool.

I'm with you on that. I don't get what it is these people are putting on their blogs that they don't want people to know. And who really is going to care enough to read through your blog anyway unless they are your friend and love to know what's going on with you? They're just ultra-paranoid people I guess.

I went private because I got a random comment from a scary guy that called himself "Morbid Angel". It was on a pic of my niece, so I didn't feel comfortable putting her & others on there for psychos to look at. As for the facebook thing, at least I can accept them as my friend before they can see my pics. Anywho, that's my opinion =)

I definitely think there are circumstances where it's better to go private, but i'm talking about those people that are FREAKS on their facebook- which is obviously not you Lyndsey!
