Unfollow me? Unfriend me? You are dead to me.


It's happened to all of us. You try to send someone a direct message on Twitter & you discover that they are no longer following you. You wonder why you haven't seen any posts from a Facebook pal lately & you discover that they are posting, they just unfriended you. THE HORROR!!!! Yes, the title of this post is tongue in cheek. But still, I'd be lying if I said it doesn't sting a bit when this happens. Especially when it's someone you respect or like. But hey, we all (myself included) have to remember, it's just the internet. It's not a life & death situation. I've read tweets from those screaming in pain after someone unfollowed them. Dude. That's embarrassing. I've been fortunate to have many people follow me on Twitter. Yes, not every single one of them has stuck around.

The funniest unfollow was Lisa Rinna who unfollowed me less than 2 hours after following me on Twitter a couple of years back. I dig Lisa. I tweeted about her book & did my best to promote it. I rooted for her on Celebrity Apprentice. I love that she's back on "Days". But yes, I still use the "That movie lasted longer than Lisa Rinna followed me on Twitter!" line. It's funny. Lisa is cool & I'll always be a fan! What's my point? Let these unfollows & unfriends roll off your back. Be classy. Nobody likes whiners and wants to be around them. Maybe those unfollowers will have a second thought and come back. Right Lisa? Lisa? Lisa? :)

Howdy would you mind letting me know which hosting company
you're using? I've loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must
say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you recommend a good web hosting provider at a fair price?

Cheers, I appreciate it!

Hi there. I was considering adding a website
link back to your website since both of our websites are primarily based around the
same niche. Would you prefer I link to you using your website address: http://www.

blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=24088024&postID=2705966333828450533 or website
title: Blogger: Geno's World. Be sure to let me know at your earliest convenience. Kudos

I am wondering which blogging and site-building platform you might be running?
I'm new to blogging and have been thinking about using the Live journal platform. Do you think this is a good platform to start with? I would be really grateful if I could ask you some questions through e-mail so I can learn a bit more prior to getting started. When you have some free time, please contact me at: mabel-corral@t-online.de. Thanks

I am new to developing web sites and I was wondering if having your site title relevant
to your articles and other content really that vital? I notice your title, "Blogger: Geno's World " does appear to be spot on
with what your blog is about however, I prefer to keep my title
less content descriptive and based more around site branding.
Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea? Any kind of assistance would
be greatly appreciated.

Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my apple ipad
and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

Right now it sounds like Movable Type is the best blogging platform out there right now.

(from what I've read) Is that what you are using on your blog?
