Don't be that guy

I have received explicit instructions with regard to this page. Yesterday I inadvertently posted twice. It just seemed to me that the two ideas I was discussing really did not relate to one another and that two posts was more appropriate. However, doing so resulted in my being instructed to "not be that guy" which I guess is someone that spends all day every day coming up with pithy things to put into a web blog. I believe that this is probably a good idea. Truth be told this is a fairly light time as far as schedule and I am sure as things ramp up toward the end of the month that I will not post at all for quite some time, so "being that guy" is probably not going to be a problem.

I do have to wonder too about what I will write about here. People certainly don't want to know that we bought a new kitchen table or that Trinity successfully went to the bathroom today. I don't think I am 100% at liberty to talk about the goings on at work because this is a semi public forum and who knows who it would get back to, there are several sites belonging to my students that I am sure they would be horrified to know I have the addresses. This is absolutely not a venue for personal venting. Just today I heard from one friend with a site who was busted by her boyfriend for complaining about him online. That the answer to this particular case is that he should stop giving her cause to vent is sort of beside the point. Nobody's partner should have to first see personal details about their relationship online, that's just wrong.

So while I am trying to figure out what is appropriate from work or life or whatever I would appreciate it if you do see it starting to happen that you let me know if I am becoming that guy.

My opinion? It's your website, post whatever you want. If people don't want to read it, they don't have to. :)

I agree with the previous comment. It's your blog. Post what you please as often as you please.

whatever you do, don't post a picture of you about to give head to your partner. or your partner about to give head to you. or you and your partner naked. or just your partner naked. or just a small unassuming part of your partner naked and visible in the picture of you about to give your partner head.
