Gossip Pool

It has recently, and most abruptly, come to my attention that the Internet world has become the biggest gossip pool since humans began gossiping.  And let's just be honest, humans have been gossiping since they could draw on cave walls!  The use of such mediums like blogs, facebook, and others is not only to make connections with friends and family that are not easily accessible, but also to get commentary from the world at large.  For example, when you post things on Facebook, it is to tell the world your thoughts for a specific reason.  You may be asking for help, looking to annoy or get a rise out of people, or simply letting people know what is happening in your life.  It is understandable that you may forget what people may or may not see, but simply sharing the intimate details of your life on such a network is an invitation for people to read, analyze, and even comment on your actions.  If something is "none of any one's business" but your own, then keep it to yourself.  That is precisely what diaries are for!  You can still write it on the computer ... just saved in your own personal documents and not blasted out on the Internet for the world to see!

Sorry for the whining session ... but I had to share it with the world!  :)


  1. I know that I'm making a fb reference, but I really wish there was a "like" button for posts. Because I would so totally click it for this one!

  2. There is a way in which to add reaction buttons to your posts, but I choose not to in order to encourage discussion! :)


Glad you visited my corner of the world. Please share your thoughts!
