How wary are you on the Internet?
I saw this current affairs show last night where this elderly woman was conned out of a huge amount of money by Internet fraudsters. Even the police were amazed at how smooth these criminals were. Of course according to news reports, the same thing is happening in chat rooms, discussion forums and social networking sites every day. The Internet is a breeding ground for pathological people.
It got me thinking.
About the blogging community.
I tend to let my guard down when it comes to blogging believing it is fairly safe given we share so much of ourselves anyway. I've never had so much as a nasty comment or email (no, don't go giving me my first one) other than your obvious Nigerian scam emails which end up in junk mail anyway.
There's a lot of shared trust and I've seen many examples of that in recent times. However, once we post, our words and images are floating forever more around the universe somewhere and can be read by anyone on the internet.
Have you ever had your fingers burnt when it comes to blogging? Do you have any experiences or thoughts you want to share? Good or bad.
Have a great weekend everyone! Oh and I'm really an Aussie sheepdog....
