Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

On Online Behavior

A person’s online site is his domain. He can post, blog, tweet or plurk whatever’s on his mind to his heart’s content. The author is free to put out there whatever he wants. That is his right.

Conversely, if the posts, blogs, tweets or plurks of an author are not to our liking, we are free to stop reading, unfollow or unfriend. That is our right.

Facebooking, blogging, tweeting or plurking are like flirting. If your followers/readers decide to unfollow or unfriend you, don’t take it against them. It doesn’t mean they reject you as a person. It may only mean that your posts are irrelevant to him. It does not, in any way, diminish you as a person.

Unless you want to be universally loved by all; in which case, you have a bigger problem.

nice insight and i couldn't agree more. this entry serves as an open-mindedness to some. but it takes a strong individual to admit that they have a problem.

minsan ko ng iniyakan yung blogger na nag unfollow sa akin (may crush ata kasi ako sa kanya eh) pero tama ka, one has to move on, cry and then fly ang drama, :)
