bloggy summer camp. . .blame it on the alcohol

Day 12 – Tell us about the first time you got drunk or tipsy (as far as you can remember…) Do you ever stop yourself from telling too much when you write on-line or do you think you tell too much

hmmmm. . .remember that my mom reads my blog. . .lol. . .and potential employers and clients. . .but having said that - this is me =)

i think the first time was in high school. . .probably at a party. . .drinking sloe gin fizzes and playing drinking games like Thumper and Mexican.  It all seemed so grown-up - trying to play Thumper gently on a friend's parents' glass table. . .

i would call myself a cautious online writer.  what you read here is true and genuine.  i am exactly what you see in these words and pictures - i will never intentionally lie to you.  however, just like with so many of the ways we present ourselves - our online or blog personality becomes a part of who we are. . .would-be employers will Google you. . .smart clients will Google you. . .potential employees will Google you. . .i believe it's important to think about what you are presenting, while maintaining your sense of self. 

so - i curse. . .i share embarrassing stories. . .i rant. . .it's part of who i am.  if we worked in an office building together - these are stories i would probably tell you once we got to know each other.

how about you? are you a free sharer or do you hold back? a little of both?

you can get more information on the summer blog camp from Creating Motherhood.

catch you soon -
