Re: WWW representation of Real World? (I hope not too)

I portray my interests, often interject my humor (not always realized at the
quick of the draw in the webworld) in some forums. But as to the clarity of
myself online, the skeletal is there, and yet I tend to give impressions of
shy attributes (quiet persona), however in real life, I am animated,
exaggerated and vociferous. (ironic isn't it) It seems that one cannot fully
comprehend a person, and often can misconstrue said words online to be a
different connotation altogether. (as I'm sure many of you have experienced)
As far as divulging personal information online, I'm honest, but will
protect with ambiguous diction games when needed. Mystery can be a
successful measure of acceptable privacy. I do reply to all stray emails
that are sent to me via my websites, and use the previous tactic to any
adverse questions or comments. (or use some sort of humor distraction)
For the most part, I represent myself to the best of my ability in hopes to
meet or hear from people with the same interests. I appreciate comments and
visitors to my sites including those they may send via email. I also attain
great pleasure in creating my webpages, such as in art, you can be "God" of
the particular creation, and view your product with streaming validations.
I have made some great connections thru the web, cyber bonding has been good
to me.
I do not have an alter ego, although I do find the combination notion
appealing. Yet, consider that there may be some obstacles when faced with a
real time situation if that were ever actualized. I myself want to reach out
for myself, and as myself, (credit where credit is due if you will) Perhaps
thats selfish?
Web presence rocks!
Fully addicted,
Gina "Nanogirl" Miller
