Okay, I'm not one to consider myself a person to know anything about ethics besides using common sense. I have even placed myself in an "unethical" category before, of course not on purpose though. It has happened through the trial and error of blogging.

An example. I had used a url service where you make a hundredth of a cent per click. I thought I would give it a try as I saw another blogger using it. A few days later, after using the shortener for as many links as I needed to, and not always my own, I see a conversation being held all about how unethical a certain blogger is for using the service. Well, I'm not a rocket scientist, but it didn't take long to figure out I was the "certain blogger" they so fondly referred to. I quickly quit being "unethical" and no longer use the service at all. I would not consciously do something inappropriate or unethical on my blog or anywhere for that matter. What bothered me, is they lynched me behind my back in a group setting. Not one of those people contacted me and asked if I knew I was being a bad blogger. Just talk about me in third person like I don't exist.....
Any way, I know I won't hold it against myself... it was innocent. Hopefully people will see it laid in inexperience and forgive me too.

So there ya have it. Probably the first post today on ethics by using yourself as the example.  

Here's the point: I do this to show I had nothing to hide or be ashamed of, and that doing your research or asking other bloggers about a service before you use it might be a better idea. Get advice and recommendations before you take the plunge!

  1. I think we've all made mistakes at one time or another. I'm sure what happened was painful for you. Thanks for sharing your experience.

    1. Not so much painful, as annoying. Being part of a community of sorts, you'd think people would speak directly to you and not around you. Help each other out. We're all in this together in the long run.

      Thank you for visiting, and happy weekend!

  2. I wonder about the ethics of what was done to you. Should we as bloggers not also be held a standard about how we conduct ourselves in how we talk and treat other bloggers? I am sorry this happened to you.

    1. I sure do appreciate the sentiment, though don't feel bad for me.
      I used this as an example to show that we should encourage and help, each, for free, because we are in a community. Not break each other down over petty jealousy or dislikes.
      Thank you for your visit, and Happy ABEA!

What you can't see can hurt you. Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy scientist, Cecilia (Elisabeth Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding. But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see. 


REVIEW:
I sorta hated the beginning.
Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see.
It doesn't take long to get light though.
Thankfully.
Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too.
Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would be like if everyone thought you were o…

In the mythical continent of Westeros, several powerful families fight for control of the Seven Kingdoms. As conflict erupts in the kingdoms of men, an ancient enemy rises once again to threaten them all. Meanwhile, the last heirs of a recently usurped dynasty plot to take back their homeland from across the Narrow Sea.
This is the eighth and final season.



REVIEW: I loved the whole series, but especially loved this season as it wrapped it all up.  There were a couple of moments that were so incredibly tragic, but also a couple moments where the most tragic things couldn't have happened to better people. Take Sussy for example. God, how I hated that woman through the whole show and couldn't wait for her to get what was coming to her. Did she get it here? You have to watch and see! This is the season where you will sit on the edge of your seat, waiting to see who will win the kingdom. Does your favorite character prevail above the others? MIne d…

The Rock, Jason Stathom and Ryan Reynolds in one film. Oh, my!
It was a great story, had tons of action and kick-ass moments. It was comical at times too. Everything I hoped for in this movie was there.
Just make sure you keep watching after the credits. It doesn't end when you think it does.
Watched with the hubby and he is a big fan. His exact words were, 'it was awesome'.
