blog post, anonymity?

Thu Feb 19, 2015, 7:15 PM

this is a post i made in my blog today. 
if you're interested, check it out...  crazyruthie.wordpress.com/


i think about this every time i meet someone new online: how old is this person? not that i'm ageist, but it fascinates me. i'm sure everyone forms mental images of what their online friends look like when they say "lol" or use a smiley emoticon.  :)

age is something that in real life is a barrier between people. people in their 60's rarely hang out with people, say,  in their 20's and teens certainly don't hang out with five year olds!  (i think the age limitations are much less important the older you are.)but not online. the net is the great equalizer! if you don't know, you can't judge!

i love having rambling conversations with strangers. i makes for some lively conversation and it pushes the limits of what you feel comfortable saying to people.

anonymity changes how people relate to each other. sometimes it's not so cool when people feel more free to be assholes, but in general, i think it's a good thing.

when these conversations happen, and i end up being friends with someone i meet that way, i try as hard as i can not to look at any of their personal information for as long as possible. 

it's so freeing!

you can fave and run, you can leave a comment, give me a llama (PLEASE!), you can just look at this page and then you'll be giving me a pageview! you can thank me if you want, you don't have to, though. :)

i love random conversations i love meeting new people and i'm really interested in your opinion about my art.

ill probably look at your gallery instead of thanking you....but don't surprised if you get thanked, too

it's nice to meet you!

Sleepy Mackie by crazyruthie

makie's a dorgi (half dachshund and half corgi....could you get a better mix?).
two of the most awesome dogs all rolled into one fab dog!

he's 9 years old. i got him from a rescue shelter that i volunteered at.. i saw him and it was love at first sight!

he's my constant companion. he's happy to be alive!

is there any extreme weather going on around you?

I guess it will take time.  But that's good to hear ... in spite of my general
confidence that it WILL heal, and even tho the last update was good news,
I've been fretting a bit.  :heart:  :hug:

oh, that's so kind! 

not to worry, though, i've been through the same thing with the other hand, which makes this a lot easier because i know that even if it seems crappy now, longer than one might expect, it will continue to get better, slowly. 

it's a little daunting because my right hand still isn't entirely healed, but it's close. we just have to be patient. i put an ice pack on it in the morning. after i take my meds it's really not bad. i take 2 tylenol and 2 aleve every 6 hours. that makes a huge difference. 

thanks so much for caring! :) :heart:
