But what happens when someone sets no boundaries about what sheâ€™ll share online? What happens when someoneâ€™s narcissism and obsession with fame (at least of the internet variety) leads her to vomit entire contents on her personal life, her familyâ€™s life, and the private information of her â€œfriendsâ€ and suitors? Ladies and gentleman, if you havenâ€™t virtually met her yet, allow me to introduce you to Julia Allison, fameball extraordinaire, whose recent public meltdown should be a cautionary tale to all of us with any online presence at all.
I urge you to go read this entire column. I couldnâ€™t have said this better myself.
I’ve realized lately that I write an awful lot about myself, beyond just my meals. I post a lot of photos of myself (presumably to show how far I’ve come…and sometimes really fun things I do, but still, a lot of photos of myself). My meals are frequently social interactions, and I often write about whom I’m eating with.
I can definitely see how one can start oversharing. So, if you ever think I am — about you, about someone else, about me, let me know! Blogs, by their nature, are somewhat narcissistic, but I always try to stay on the “somewhat” side, which includes never assuming my real-life friends/family members have read something I’ve written.
