I’m curious to know how many of us are on-line fibbers? Are you always telling the truth when you write stories or make comments or do you maybe smudge the lines to make it look better? Now, I don’t really give a rats behind if you fib or not. I just thought it would be an interesting question to throw out there.
I do think that when online with people you don’t know you do have to guard yourself. They tell you not to post too much information for a reason! But, not revealing things about yourself to complete strangers and making your comment better than it would be without the lie is different. I can remember 12 years ago when I chatted for the first time, I made up who I was because my cousin told me to! How dumb! Chatting never thrilled me and what fun is it to talk to someone who may or may not be who they say? Haven’t been to a chat room since.
All the posts that I write are real. What’s the point to fib about something that happened to me or someone I know? Especially with how many family members read this blog! It’s not like I’m sitting with a bunch of strangers that know nothing about me or my life!
