As a very wise and wonderful blog friend informed me, you can find out WAY too much about me and my life by running a few simple google searches. When I started this blog, I had no idea what a blog even was. I had no clue that people would be reading it. Hell, I had no clue that people ran google searches on others. My mind doesn’t work that way. As I would never do that to someone, I just assumed no one would do that to me. Apparently though, if you google search a few simple ‘key’ words, not only do you get a bird’s eye view into my life, but apparently parts of my blog come up.
I internet date. And hate it. People do run google searches on others though. That’s a fact of life. I get it. It’s not so much that I lie about having this blog, but rather that I just don’t mention it. Sure if and when I meet a terrific guy (maybe W, maybe not), I will absolutely tell them about it and hope that they respect my privacy. That’s probably not very realistic though. Anyway, when I set up my blog originally, I used my name, my e-mail address, my everything. I’ve blurted out where I live, what I do for a living and even what bars I frequent. Who knows how many guys have googled me? Maybe none, maybe 100. Possibly this might explain why fellows that I thought I hit it off with suddenly up and disappeared. Or maybe they just thought I sucked. Who knows.
The thing is, I can’t have clients, potential or current guys or anyone outside of my not-so-anonymous blog family having such easy access to my life and thoughts. I write things on here that I would NEVER tell anyone. I do it under the ruse of being anonymous. And I’m not. 😦
So I’ve made a few changes. I have changed the url for my blog. Anyone that has/had me saved to favorites, or on their blogroll (thank you!), will land on empty page that states that my blog has been deleted. It hasn’t. It’s just sorta moved. I will not be using my name anymore in the blog and would appreciate any commentors not using it either. I realize this is a bit like shutting the barn door after all the animals escape, but damn it, that’s just how I roll. 😉 Whoever cares to is still welcome to have me on their blogroll (it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside), you’ll just need to change the link to the new url.
I apologize for any inconvenience that this causes and truly hope that anyone that enjoyed following along with my screwed up dating life will be able to find me at my new url, but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do …….. damn it.
