@dbvickery I loved comic books too: Archie, Casper the Friendly Ghost, you know the girly ones!
Ohhh you just reminded me how much I loved the Clan of the Cave Bear series! I might read them again. I read one of them at the beach in Cape Cod over a few days. Good times! I have been reading all social media for the past two years and need to get back to a little more pleasure reading. I am so excited you are going to read What the Plus! Hooray!

@pavelnovel I agree that Google+ is very engaging and welcoming to new people.
So glad you liked my thoughts and agree that having fun is important. Why take things so seriously all the time? :)

@dbvickery Thanks, Brian! Amazing how common sense can get you lots of places.
Thanks for you nice comment, you are always very kind.
I love your suggestions and watching Ferris Bueller is always a good break. Fantastic addition to your post.
I have a vacation coming up that will be almost all sans social media and I am really looking forward to it. I am sure that I will wonder what is going on and yes, I will hit WiFi when I can but you can't replace the special times with your family. And the tweet will be there when you get back.
I feel that I need offline conversations and reading to come up with ideas for writing. Having some offline time to think will help everything be stronger when you get back. Nice post!

We are blessed that Mr. Covey choose to write. This is fantastic advice "If I really want to improve my situation, I can work on the one thing over which I have control — myself."
Thank you for these reminders of a few of his thoughts, @bushraazhar.

Which Fantastic “F” Facet do you want associated with your name? Which one do you treasure and respect the most? Hmmm.... I would say fantabulous and fiesty. Forgiving and fair are also very nice.
Thanks for the shout out! Guess I better write a Fab Five this week...

@PrinceElemir The fact that you are at peace and happy with your choice is the most important thing. There really is only a right in our own hearts and minds. We each have to live with our own decisions.
I work in social media and being original is important. Yes, legal fees for things would be crazy but I do believe it is my right do defend my intellectual property. And for me, that seems right.

@shanna_wilson It seems that Tumblr is a very separate culture that in which everything is meant to be shared and re-blogged which is different than the rest of the blogging world. It seems like Pinterest in that things get shared so many times that you can't even find the source when you want to, I don't see how that gives the original writer exposure.
This is exactly correct "But it's not hard to just surf for images online and re-post them and call it a blog..." this is what people are doing when they are scraping other people's blog or pulling things from ScoopIt and syndicating it out. They are not creating content but curating it, sometimes in a legitimate manner and sometimes not. Is this being done for blog traffic? Not sure but using other people's material as your own isn't right. The Oatmeal/FunnyJumk case is a perfect example.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts. :)
Super fun post, @AnitaHovey!
I will add Mad Housewife to the list.

@PrinceElemir I am a giver too. But how do you feel about this "but now I just stop caring." I am curious.
@petertrapasso Hi Peter! Awesome to see you here. This is obviously a lighter post but I have a lot of material, I hope you enjoyed it,
My blog just had a makeover about a month ago and I am still tweaking things here and there but I love it.
Thanks so much!

@lauraclick I wish I had a ton of answers. I would love a plug-in that caught this too!
I haven't tried it yet but there is this: http://www.digiprove.com/copyright_proof_wordpress_plugin.aspx
I think that it helps on 12 Most but I don't know. I think that it is imperative as a blog owner to have information on your blog.
Good luck with your blog and thanks for commenting!
@Kim Phillips I agree, Kim. Saying we can't do anything about it seems wrong.
Let's keep up the good fight. :)
Fantastic job on your post! Nice job sharing your secrets to happiness.
And I loved your video choice. ZeFrank is way cool.
