Whoa now, Happy Halloween, huh? That will certainly keep the kids off your front porch. I’m not even going to guess if that is a man or a woman; kind of like asking a lady ‘when are you due?’ Don’t even go there….
Am I seeing the real you?
When you first jumped into social, were you cautious so as to minimize your social fox paws (faux pas)? Or did you just stumble in like a bull in a china shop which was my MO. If you have been in for any time, how much have you changed?
I certainly thought I was swave and deboner (suave and debonair) and acted like I belonged. Even now I pull some green horn stunts, isn’t that right Kaarina? Friends don’t let friends drive drunk, right? I can’t believe most of you stayed around as difficult it can be to stay ‘connected’ to my site. I’m impressed, you guys make me smile……….:).
I have met some dick nozzles in here and people who just flat-out dropped me, but I don’t think there has been anybody who turned out to be totally creepy. Ok, maybe marginally creepy but I eventually just went my own way. Most started chasing a business model I had no interest in so we eventually parted ways. Hopefully I don’t have too many haters…
But you look so nice
Whereas, it can seem like a love-fest in here at times; the reality is, it is not exactly a bed of roses for everybody right now. I don’t think most with challenges in their lives are making this stuff up, and we are probably only getting to see the tip of the iceberg.
I would caution that until you walk a mile in someone’s shoes, be slower to judge and if you aren’t getting what you want out of the encounter, just move on.
You are the only measure of validation you need. You are chasing a rabbit down a hole if all you do is sniff ‘A-lister’ butt for recognition (that probably wasn’t a good mental image but it made me laugh when I wrote it, so it gets to stay).
I hate to do this, but….
I’m sure these people will just love the fact, I linked them to this post with Peter, Peter the Pumpkin eater; but they certainly deserve some love even though we sometimes only see each other from afar.
Margie Clayman – Obviously she was a much better student than I in school. She has a creative, clever way of weaving stories throughout history and able to draw a parallel with social; somebody was paying attention in class. I go to her place for my history lesson and to be entertained; she is a talented individual indeed.
My man Howie Goldfarb – That’s a nice southern name if I’ve ever heard one. Howie and I are both lovers of baseball and other things odd and we frequently tweet each other, especially during baseball and football season. We certainly hang out at a lot of the same places even if we don’t end up at each other’s place. Howie is smart too and has a very good handle on what is real in social and what is not; at least he makes a lot of sense to me.
Howie, you truly are the thorn between two roses here.
Amber Avines – She’s a California girl, with a laid back approach and typically writes about what she observes in her everyday adventures. I always enjoy stopping by and most times my replies are close to what she was talking about in her post. I have to put her in the smart category as well, so I guess you might see a pattern here. You are only as good as the company you keep, right?
The common denominator?
Gini of course and there was no way I was not going to include her in this post especially with the pumpkin shot.
I just wanted these people to know I enjoy their work and what they bring to the mix even if we don’t crash on each other’s floor. If you don’t know them, it will be worth a visit.
That’s my story and I’m sticking with it
I have a confession; I had about 3 different stories I was going to do but one way or another I was going to find a way to use the pumpkin pic. I hope my ‘mentioned’ friends don’t take offense, because you know I love ya.
