Blogging Safely

I knew right from the start that the site where I originally joined and AdultFriendFinder were interchangeable. That’s because my first AdultFriendFinder date and I almost parted after the first 15 minutes: our conversation was so at cross purposes we each decided we’d met up with a total nutter and we’d better split, fast. … … Then the light gradually dawned and we got on fine after that.

Some of the connected sites are obviously spinoffs because the share the name, as in Xxx Friend Finder; those with different types of names probably are ex-independent sites which have been bought up.

The huge size of the composite database and the open access to all search engines gives us a huge readership and lots of potential friends. It is why we all love Blogland so much: somewhere in the huge group is a subgroup that suits everyone of us. If the total pool were smaller our reactions would be less positive.

I didn’t consider the implications of blogging on a non-secure site until the goggling potential was first raised last year. The three possible responses to this knowledge are all represented in the comments on my previous post:
1. “Isn’t it great, I get read by more people.”
2. “I’m scared, I’m out of here,” or “I know where I can blog in a secure place.”
3. “I’ll take away my face and some specific details in my posts and carry on.”
My response was the third, but I respect the other two responses; it is a matter of the situations we live in.

The people who would like to “do something” about the situation can’t ‒ unless they are prepared to come out in the real world and consult lawyers. But it would have been nice to know how the ground lay when we started blogging.

Maybe some basic information could be included next time one of our mentors writes a Post for New Bloggers.

This is Polly, still Wagging

Not only that, but if you delete your blog it can still be found by googling up the cache. I've recently been reading Blondies old blog and all its comments...

Interesting Polly.....I wonder how long the Google cache does last? Any commets anyone? Indefinite? Read somewhere that once you are on here, you are here forever....regardless of how you may try to delete your posts.....
Tala4u2 thoughts about copyright and ownership seem to be appearing on other blog posts within this site. Posts have truly become recognized as artistic venture and pride of ownership is important.
Interesting to see where blogging goes in two or three years. There is possibility for huge archival potential and for enormous readership

Nice to read you again Polly!! Thanks for the visit today.
