Feelings, about Site.

I am real. To expect the same from connections on this site, is more than reasonable.

For All Who Read and Would like to know me!

"In conclusion, I ask you and your readers to consider the following questions: What is the nature of a blog? Is it to be limited only to factual statement, to the true thoughts of the writer, or may it be regarded on the whole as a creative thing? If a blog can include works of fiction, why can the blog as a whole not also be one larger work of fiction? Does it matter even one tiny bit?"-quote from whoever is behind the Cliticals

I would say YES! If the blog was not on this site and did not have a profile, that by its nature, on this site, is designed to be real. This is the wrong place for confessed game playing for the writers amusement.

Has everyone forgotten about what the TRUE use of this site is for? The blogs are secondary to the foundation of the profile.

Final ramblings from Mav.

i think it is ok to use stories that you think are interesting in your blog even if they are not your own. but dont base that to be your entire blog or steal it from somewere else. everything that is not my own writing i do say so in that post.

i'm really just stopping by to say hi! i'm still soooooooo confused about all the dithering that accompanies the recent drama here in blogville, and i'll be delighted to remain clueless about it.
i write posts for myself and to share with my friends here, and so the whole situation really isn't going to concern me.
anyway, just stopping by to say hi!

Hi Mav,

I think you state a very good point. We are mostly here to 'hook' up with other people, for whatever reason. Blogs are just an added bonus in my opinion.

The blogs can be fantasy, real, fact or fiction. But they are just another way of getting to know a person, and if that person is false it all just becomes a waste of time, feelings and emotion that some of us can well do without.

It saddens me that some feel the need to deceive others.

My blog is a total extension of me in real life.

I dont lie.

If i see a joke i will include it to be passed around for all to laugh at.

If i see an article i will rewrite it in my own words with my own opinions & open it up for debate.

I discuss whats personal to me & what matters.

The person i ma is exactly the person you will meet in real life & many can actually back that up from here too.

I dont mislead nor glorify who or what i am.

I expect other people to be the same.

I appreciate blogs are used for many many reason. Some are just a profile extension to try & get laid.

Some are just full of copy & paste articles.

Others are laden with their expoits either real or make believe.

Yes i suppose ther are loads who arent who they say they are. These people will never meet others...they will say they have on their blog but never mention who theyve met.

I appreciate honesty from all my friends, be it on here or in real life.

I love the way blogging has brought many people together & i see my own blog as a success due to me meeting fellow bloggers & also they have met each other too through getting to know each other on my blog.

The whole charade is pathetic & should not be mentioned ever again in my opinion as its so not worth it.

I am real in my blog and I speak of real things in my life. I have written, and will continue to write, stories that are works of fiction but I am very careful to point out which are stories and which are real experiences. It's against my nature to be deceitful. I would certainly not use a picture of someone else on my blog and imply that it was me, that just goes against everything I value.
