the perils of de online world, pt. 396

So Audrey, on her blog, alerted us all to Courtney(Storing Up Treasures) problems. Apparently, people were using her words against her, and she was wondering whether or not she should continue blogging. I'm too lazy to provide a link, but go check it out on Audrey's blog. 

And that's another peril of the online world. You're always taking the risk that your online world might overlap into your regular world, for the worst. That's why I use a confusing pseudonym.(Actually, it's because I don't like my real name.) So what I do is:

When I write about real people, I try to never portray anyone in a negative light. You never know who might be reading it(I learned that from my Her Universe post.). Or at least change their name, gender, and ethnicity. 

My advice to Courtney?(Although I'm not in the position to give her any advice, since she has oh, five hundred more followers than me.)

I don't know the severity of the incidents, but I wish she'd keep blogging. She blogs for God's kingdom, and I know she's touched a lot of lives.

And she makes money from the blog(Yes, I have a fame-and-money complex). You ain't gonna make any money listening to them haters, girl.  


So it's definitely something she should pray about. And we'll all pray for her.

PS. Check out my newest follower's blog. It's a great blog. Also, he's been blogging for just as long as I have, but has twice as many posts. But he has just like, eight followers. Follow him! He really needs to get that self promotion thing going.

    Endor-I have a handy new page called "Names". Maybe that has your answer. ;) I'm too lazy to post it here. I just got up, even though it's 10 AM.

    Winter break is awesome.
