      Have you ever blogged about your friends?

      You mean the time I spent with them? If yes, then I do that at couple of occasions when there is something extra ordinary.

        @suni51 I meant to ask if you wrote a blog about your friends in the past. As far as I am concerned some time ago I wrote a few blogs about them.

        @luciaanna We have never interacted with each other but we have shared the same sites for almost 6-7 years starting from Factoidz and Triond time. I will now write few posts about my friends, past and present, thanks for a nice idea πŸ™‚

        @suni51 You are very welcome. It seems to me that a few years ago we sometimes interacted with each other on Triond. On this purpose what about Triond? At present this webpage is not available. I look forward to reading your posts about your past and present friends.

        @luciaanna I still have 400+ on Triond but I remember you for your posts on Factoidz and couple of other similar sites.

        @suni51 I remember you very well too. 400 post on Triond? I’d say a big number. As to Triond, do you succeed in entering your account? Thank you. As I have already told you in my previous comment, the following note appears: “This site is not available”.

        @luciaanna I have not tried lately but I have earned very good amount from that site until October 2015 for 4 months contentiously. For only 5 small posts all travel related I earned at an average $20 per month as there were no other posts so I got close to 2 million hits on those 5 posts.They sent all the money on every 7th to my Paypal without fail but now there is no activity. I am getting only 4-6 hits a day. And accumulated only 8 cents in last 4 months.

      Only once in a great while. I tend to favor other things more.

      Yes, I blog about my friends all the time. Some knows it, and allow it, some do not have any idea as I am not dropping names.

        I sometimes blog about my friends, but I don’t use their names @grecy095

      I think I always blogged about my friends. I mean, most of my experiences in life, stories are coming from my moments with them. And I think sharing that would be a good blog.

        @blueberry Yes, I think that sharing your experiences with your friends is a good thing.

      YES! I blog about everybody. But I don’t use their names. But anyone is creeping on my blogs and they are called Roger Dodger and busted out a window, they would know it was about them. But I don’t tell people I blog for money, not friends anyways.

        That’s what I do too, Andria…different names all the way. I’ll change a few details around and fashion some of the stories into a little fictitious article so that it doesn’t ever come back to bite me LOL

        @angie10 I always use different names as well. I usually write about fictional characters.

        @andriaperry Same here. When I blog about my friends I never use their real names.

      Yep sometimes I blogged about them. It’s fun to share experiences with friends.

        Yes, @missweng. I agree with you: it’s fun to share our experiences and ideas with our friends.

      I forgot to say that I usually don’t use names either. I don’t want to defame anyone or make them feel like they were dragged through the entire internet even if it was something positive. Some people just like to be private.

        @Anne Farmer….that’s a good way of doing it.We always have to be respectful of other people’s feelings and not make it so obvious.

        @anne123farmer I completely agree with you. I like to be private too.

      I mention names in cases of giving credit to people who give me advice on broken links or where to get better articles than what I used. Otherwise I might say “A friend on BlogJob…” without explicitly saying who they are. I have used names in the past, but I am trying to get better with journalism ethics. Like Anne Farmer said, people may find it weird to be mentioned even if it’s their username.

      One thing I *do* do: I will post my Facebook screencaps with everyone’s names. They’re posting in a very public domain and if they feel uncomfortable with what is being published, well, they should’ve thought of that beforehand.

      Haha yes, some of them have given me good material to work with. I just make sure not to use their real names, and also tweak a few details here and there so i don’t get caught with my pants down, so to speak!

      Yes, I blog about my friends, some know it, some able to read it and some do not have any idea at all, lol.

      I guess that’s why sometimes I’m not eager to post my articles on Facebook hehe

        Hehe good strategy, @Andria. This way they can’t say it’s them you’re talking about, right?

      Yes, I do that sometimes but without names?

      I have to agree. I wouldn’t use anybody’s name, at least not unless I had their permission. In fact, I probably wouldn’t even go that route. I like my privacy, so I try to respect other people’s as well.

      Yes! I blog about my friends. But I make sure that I cant offend them, especially when I am pointing awkward things in a funny way so I never use their names. ^___^

      @shaiera I’m realizing that many people blog about their friends, but they do not use their real names.

      @luciaanna because some don’t want to be exposed …and sometimes, it is depends upon to the story that a certain blogger will share ^_______^

      Lately a few friends and family members have given me very interesting material to work with. I now need to work out what angle to take with each before submitting something here. Obviously, I’m going to have to modify some of the details πŸ˜‰
