@Nandini_M Thanks! I'll take a look at your blog post when I have a chance.
I do agree that it isn't "always about you" - in fact, I'd argue it's usually not about you. :)

@pinkpackrat Ha! This episode was fantastic, I thought, really delved into a lot of aspects of Self and what that really means. I need to watch it again with my older son, who is now addicted.

@JackSack :) It's a great way to double-check yourself.
YES. I was very bothered by the cynical way Goldieblox approached this. They could ahve done this so many other ways that problably would have done well - they do, after all, have friends at Upworthy and other outlets that would have given them attention. What they did was wrong. Period. And they knew it.

@ArthurHenryGuntherIII Thank you, Art! I do believe that the best is yet to come for writers and reporters. The Internet has opened so many roads and destinations. We're still relatively early going; those directions are beginning to become apparent.

@tracysestili inorite? And a friend just posted a photo on Facebook where there was a Galaga machine in the background. I wanted to jump inside and play. :)

The biggest thing that marketers/PR folks need to have in mind when it comes to Reddit is that if its users even *think* that you're using Reddit to promote your or your client's content, they will "out" you and bury you and prevent your domain from being able to be submitted. If you're going to "use" Reddit, do so with caution and be extremely transparent about it.

The second to last photo is one of the funniest things I've ever seen. Well played, @Erika Napoletano. And kudos to Camille for reaching out. Maybe you each made a new friend! lol
Sidenote: The second to last pic KILLED me.

@Steph Ritz Thank you! I feel so much better knowing I wasn't alone. I rarely struggle so much in sharing my feelings, but everything kept telling me to write this post.

@Tinu Exactly. I struggled so much in writing this. Thanks so much for your comment. Neither of these stickers was *wrong*. They just also weren't the only right.

@T60Productions I was just about to say the same thing. I've been coming over to the Oxford comma side of things, but I don't consider that a grammatical error inasmuch as it's a style issue.
@DenVan The problem is that OpenId is a protocol AND it's a platform/service. MyOpenID was the one we all thought we were signing up for, but then we'd go there and get all confused. You're right. It wasn't intuitive or user-friendly. It did pave the way for FB Connect and Google signin and Twitter oAuth.
In other words, yep, pretty much what you said.
