I agree. If you don't want it public, don't publish it. Anywhere lol. Thanks for stopping by, Nicolas!
My recent post What is a “New Media Specialist”?

No third party site should own any of your original content exclusively, I agree. I always suggest social media participation to my clients as an enhancement to their web site to increase their Internet presence.

(Yes, even though the comment I'm replying to is off topic, and my gut tells me it was generated by a bot, I thought I'd publish it anyway, simply because I had asked my Twitter friends what they thought about the new Facebook comments box. The result was a discussion about third party reliance by web site owners, and how it's a bad idea to 'put all your eggs in one basket'. Comments especially, are not something you want owned and hosted by a third party.)

It is for this very reason that I'm reconsidering the use of IntenseDebate here on my own site. My trust in Automattic is the only reason it's still here.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Kim :) I can't decide which makes me happier, knowing that there's another out there with the same feelings about Newsletters, or the fact that you found this post while doing a 'search' lol!

YAY! Thanks, Fenny! The way I see it, what I have to offer will only resonate with the kind of people that deserve the best. Glad to count you among them! <3

LOL! I'm right there with ya, Tia! To me, it's like shooting yourself in the foot. So desperate for traffic that you'll try all this kinda lowbrow stuff... but your blog visitors won't follow you on Twitter, and your Twitter followers won't go to your blog. Why should they, really? *SMDH*

I'll just never cease to be amazed by the things people will do. Thanks for stopping by, Tia... It's good to know I'm not the only one that feels this way ;)

Thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment, Fenny! <3

I try to do a lot of the 'sifting' through the massive amounts of available information out there, just so people just like you don't have to bother lol. You have no idea how much it means to hear that you enjoy your visits here! If there's ever anything that you'd like me to cover in a blog post, just let me know... If I don't know the answers, I'll endeavor to find them for you! ;)

You said it, NonDomesticMama! (In a lot fewer words than I used lol)

It's just a bad idea all the way around. There is only ONE use for such a thing as far as I'm concerned, and that's for those people that for some reason want a TUMBLR type blog. MICRO mini posts ONLY. Not your tweets mixed in with all your other regular blogging content. Oy. Glad to see I'm not the only one thinking of it the way you are ;) Thanks for commenting!

I know you used a voice program to post to the forum... have you used it to blog yet? I've yet to try it, maybe after this round of WordPress updates ;)
