I feel so accomplished. It’s a holiday weekend. I could have went somewhere like everyone else, but today I decided to finally stop putting off my computer problems. I was not wanting to transfer files 2 GB at a time. Who would when your transferring around 50 gigs?? I am pretty sure I had some choice words through the day that my neighbors could hear when things weren’t going my way. I really need to put some money into an external hard drive. The main computer is formatted and the 2nd computer is back online! I had some help from someone with some programs and drivers I cleaned the hell out of the computer room too, what a mess it was!
I also changed the look of the blog now that I can use my home computer. I will be able to do my blogging now at home
We moved the 2nd computer to the same room as the main computer. So hubby and I are sitting here online at 1:45 am, not talking LOL
Here is a pic I took the other day just for fun:
Aren’t the little Ghost’s cute?
Have you ever creeped on people online? Come on you know you have. You know go to peoples facebook, myspace, (that aren’t on your friends list) whatever you find about them cause they leave everything out there and not set privacy settings. My Facebook is like a prison. It has photo’s of my children, places were going among other things. Therefore I don’t friend anyone I actually don’t know in real life. I just hope those of you I went to high school with and haven’t talked to in almost 20 years didn’t turn out to be phsyco’s tho LOL
There is a website where you can have your privacy settings analyzed on facebook if for some reason you don’t understand them. Go to ReclaimPrivacy and read the directions on how to do it.
My results only show one issue and it’s not one I will fix. To be able to find me by my email address.
If I fix it then people won’t be able to find me and I am sorry the whole point of facebook is to socially network. If you don’t share anything with anyone ever you might as well be invisible and not use it at all. There is so much talk going on about facebook privacy in a negative way. People please read when they make privacy changes and decide what you want to share. It’s really that easy.
Those of you who use Facebook to play games and wanna be friends with every Tom, Dick and Harry that plays just to level up better learn how to set your privacy settings. You can block these people from reading your status’s, seeing your wall, your personal info, etc.
When you see the area’s that have “Friends Only;Except” You can click on custom and set it so that only your friends can read except certain people. You can even create lists to add to the exceptions such as a list for Games and list people only on your friends list to play games.
Which brings me to blogs and the initial point of this post………
So I creeped on someone last week. This persons MySpace was open for everyone to see including a blog. Nothing wrong with that just an observation. But in reading the blog I realized that I was reading personal information about other people that, I’m sorry the world didn’t need to know. As an outsider it made me think about things I blog about. I felt sorry for the person I was reading about in this other blog. I was reading details that are none of any ones business type stuff. The blogger also seemed very judgemental and angry in many blogs over the course of a couple years. It just made me realize what type of blogger I don’t want to be.
Now I utilize my blog to bitch and I have some opinions but I don’t think my blog goes to that over the top level. If it does someone please tell me. I did notice that people’s blogs on MySpace, myself included in the past, tend to be personal and not always nice. But I think if your gonna get that personal it should be kept private and not open. That is what stopped me from pulling all my MySpace blogs to archive from the past.
I think in the future I will try very hard not to be that blogger that vents while naming names about other people. Especially people I know and talk to in real life. I can’t say it won’t happen but I will try not to make that my theme.
