Twenty years ago as we wrote on our tired typewriters we didn’t have to worry about who saw what we were pumping out–but things have changed.
Our world has changed. Every day we’re on social media commenting, posting, and liking. Have you ever considered the electronic trail you’re leaving and what it says about you?
Once your stuff is floating out there in cyberspace you’ve lost all control over who can read it. Imagine if Stephen King perused your blog–it could happen. Maybe Prince Harry has cruised through Twitter and comes upon one of your tweets…or Perhaps J.K.Rowling liked one of your short stories… You could have secret followers that you know nothing about. A world renowned literary agent could be assessing your social media skills…
The possibilities are endless.
The next time you post something do it like the world is watching–because they are–whether you realize it or not.
You never know….
