Blogging Blagging and Bragging

Written in response to the Daily word-prompt ‘Later

Occasionally I look at the sites of fellow bloggers and I wonder if everyone is who they appear to be. My overactive imagination kicks in and I proceed to give people a number of new identities. So who are you?.

When it comes to profile pictures some of you prefer to remain anonymous and choose a cartoon character, a  flower or even a view of the ocean or a mountain. My profile picture was blank for a number of months because I was nervous about showing who I was. Nowadays I’m more confident and I use my own photo. Or do I?

How do we know who the real person is behind the bio, behind the picture, behind the mask. I might be certain you’re a man, but how do I know? You could be a woman masquerading as a man and vice versa.

As for personal details the ‘About Me’, some of you say very little, others say a little more whilst some have nothing to say.

What about the main event, the ‘Posts’? There’s such a varied selection to choose from. Fiction, lifestyle, journalism, personal journals and much more. The personal journal for instance is another area where we have an opportunity to write about ourselves and say who we really are. Some folks give little away, whereas others give a little too much!  As for myself and my own blog, it’s frequently lighthearted because I’m not a very serious person and I often give away little snippets of information about myself within a post. Or do I, is it really me speaking?

So perhaps the time has come for one of us on here to own up, to stand up and be counted and be honest about the person they really are! Sooner or later we have to do it.

Yep, this is me, the real me!

The Golden Age of Hollywood

Come on folks, what did you expect?  it’s April Fools’ Day. And don’t you just love Hollywood legends!

The History of April Fools’

On this day in 1700, English pranksters begin popularizing the annual tradition of April Fools’ Day by playing practical jokes on each other.     www.history.com .Although the day, also called All Fools’ Day, has been celebrated for several centuries by different cultures, its exact origins remain a mystery. April Fools’ Day spread throughout Britain during the 18th century. In Scotland, the tradition became a two-day event, starting with “hunting the gowk,” in which people were sent on phony errands (gowk is a word for cuckoo bird, a symbol for fool)cuckoo link…..   To read more click the cuckoo

  1. There’s a good reason I don’t use my own photo. I’m the snapshot-ist round here, and I simply don’t have one. Sadly, as well, although I looked reasonable in photos taken when I was younger, I’ve turned into my mother who somehow always looked like an old hag. Now it’s happened to me, and because of my experience comparing my mother with her photos, I take comfort from the fact that actually, the camera CAN lie

    Oh, Sue! This was a fun read. I especially enjoyed the “many faces of Sue.” I think you really are a bit of each of those actresses and, frankly, your less-than-serious nature is very appealing. I feel a kinship. (Or do I???) LOL.
