About Facebook, blogging, etc.

Dear Blog readers,

I love you. Really, I do. You stroke my ego by reading my blog. But here's the thing: If you want to be friends with me on facebook (and I have no objection to that notion), and you only know me from reading my blog, it would be helpful to include a note like "I adore your amazing blog and read it regularly" along with your friend request. Otherwise, dear blog reader, I might not know who you are, and think you are some creepy person trying to stalk me.

I have just recently turned down a few friend requests from people I don't know and am wondering where they came from.

Also, if you know me in real life please note that reading this blog is not a sufficient way to "keep in touch" with me. Especially if you never comment. It's not even a good way to keep up with the latest news on our family. That's what e-mail and telephones are for.

Sincerely,

alana

Facebook sounds scary enough, without the creepiness of anonymous blogging acquaintances! One can never tell one anonymous from the other anonymous!
