You Are Your Internet Personality

Lifetime Movie
Recently I watched this movie on Lifetime. I can't remember the name of it, but it was about a woman who was working at some little shop. I don't even remember the kind of shop it was, but that's not the point. She had a boring life and one day she started writing a love column in a newspaper. She knew absolutely nothing about love except for what she wanted, so she in turn gave the readers advice on how to love. Soon there came a point where the readers wanted to see the writer of the column. At that point she had a problem. She didn't believe her and the writer were the same person. In the end she did come out as who she thought she was and not the writer. That was the stupidest ending I'd seen, because the words in the column were hers, which meant she was the same the same all along.

Zane started out as a department worker, wife, and mother. One day she started creating these stories and putting them online. Now she's a author, publisher, filmmaker, and a sex expert. All of that was made possible by her words. She didn't start off as any of those titles, but each of those are a part of her now.

There are some you never know outside of the internet. You've never met them in person, but a simple request on facebook connects you. Inikio (don't know his last name) is one of them. He's everything you could imagine a strong black man to be. He has heart, he's caring, comfortable being himself, and talented. He's also a local Tallahassee rapper trying to get noticed. The first time I ever heard him was on Ustream. He was expressing his feelings on everyday matters in life and trying to get others opinions. The next time I heard him, he was free-styling. Who was he before the internet? That doesn't matter. All that matters is who he is now.


Lydia Cotton
One day I was looking through my news feed on  facebook when I saw one of her videos. I don't remember the title of it, but it sparked my curiousity. After watching the video I knew she was someone to keep an eye on. Lydia Cotton is a video blogger that gets out her viewpoints, but still wants to know how her audience feels. She then responds to what her audience has to say. While she may have the title blogger, she always has the grace of a woman who's definitely been skilled in journalism. Who was she before the internet? I don't know, but that doesn't even matter. She's definitely someone to listen to.

There are many who read what I write, but have never met me. I'm sure they are curious about the girl behind the screen. I'm sure they are curious about where I started out and if the image I'm putting out is a facade. Well, who really cares? I'm whatever personality who think I am. So enjoy me. Use me, but remember to continue to pay attention to me.
