Be careful, my pretties!
How well do we know our blogger friends? How well do we really trust those whom we converse with on our blogs on a regular basis, and, sometimes on a daily basis. How many times have we stumbled upon some rambling, weird, crazy-as-a-shithouse-rat blogger freak? Well, I have stumbled upon a few. I have found more than my share of freaks, simply by pressing the “Next Blog” button on the top right-hand of the screen. Once, I got onto a blog site and as I scrolled down I saw naked woman on all fours exposing her brown eye for all willing and wanting to see. I am no prude, but c’mon! I was at work on top of that. Hey, to each their own, I guess.
Since I have a lot of female blog bunnies (thanks BV), I figured I should keep you all up to date on all the creeps and sickos out there. If you are a male reading this, I am posting this to help avoid becoming a creep!
I am a talker. I love talking to people in person, on the Internet, via e-mail. Not much of a phone guy, because my ear gets hot when holding the receiver to it for a long duration, and, I am a little antiquated when it comes to cell phones. For the life of me, I cannot seem to welcome the ear-bud-while-talking thing. Maybe it's because I have made fun of countless people who look like lunatics talking to air people while wearing them, and I don't want to be hippocritical. Nah, what do I care! I'll be making fun of people until the end. I'll be making fun of the abusive, overweight, orderlies at the old folks' home. Who'll in turn probably urinate in my oatmeal every morning.
I am also an Internet guy. I love it. I love most things about it. Sadly, the conundrum lies between both of what I love and hate about it: anonymity. I really enjoy talking to you, and while I realize I am one of a few who posts my full name, I do so for a reason, and that is to help promote my book. Hell, that is why I started the blog in the first place, so it might seem a poor business choice to ask people to buy a book from a person who goes by Hoss or Aliecat or something along those lines. There are hundreds of thousands of bloggers who wish to remain anonymous, and that is totally cool, because for whatever their reasons are I am sure most are valid. For females, it makes a lot more sense, since as I will discuss in a few, there are a truckload of weirdos out there, Blogland being no exception.
Here is a link to a story about a person charged with murder and actually planned to eat his 10 year-old victim. What? I couldn't believe it when I saw it, either. Here is a link to his blog, right here on Blogger. Now, I know it is an extreme case, but the truth is that there are some sick bastards out there. His profile reads, "Single, bored, and lonely, but other than that, pretty happy." How can you go from single, bored, and pretty happy to a murdering cannibal?
Sorry to have such a crazed story on here, but, consider it a PSA for all of you to be careful on here - especially all my adoring, lovely, female groupies, er, I mean, friends.
