PERSONAL VS PRIVATE - and why it’s important to not share too much information.
Ok, I think with what I’ve been reading over the span of this year, it’s important to bring up this matter. I hope it can help reach and educate the kids on here on the subject.
What’s Personal info, what’s Private info, and why should you never ever share Private info on the internet?
Personal information is more along the lines of your interests and opinions. What makes you happy? Your favorite animals. Your favorite songs. That TV show or anime you love, the games that make you feel good. All of that is Personal Information. This is information you can share without much risk. It lets people find a common interest, and you can make good friends this way. It’s stuff you blog about.
So what’s Private information? Think facts about you. Your age, your sex and gender, your physical health, your mental health. Your location. Your family. This is none of ANYONE’s business. Now, notice I bolded mental health and location. Why? All private information is risky to share because there are people on the internet who will use this, along with your personal information, to get at you. But your mental health and your whereabouts can and will be the biggest determining factor in decisions a predator makes. If you openly share you have a weaker mentality, it’s gonna be seen as an exploitable weakness by the people looking to exploit.
So, why the heck do so many people share this information?
Easy. Tumblr has made it so that you expect this information to be shared. Which is a huge NO. Ok? Don’t share private information publicly like this. Please. It is no one’s business but your own. Mr.SJW Anon can suck it, it’s not their business.
Tumblr is a blogging/social media website, and one with slackened security factors and practically no administration, meaning this website is shitty and risky to post private information on.
Especially if you’re a minor.
It shouldn’t have to be this way, it’s unfair. No one should have to live in fear of dangerous people, especially not children. But predators exist, and it might happen to you. Especially if you have an illness that makes it harder to read the already hidden red flags. If you share that you have an illness, and you share how it makes you behave, you’re putting yourself at a higher risk.
Especially if you’re a minor.
So what about vent posts? Those are fine, as long as you keep them vague enough. It’s ehhhhh, still not 100% ok but better to share private information if you keep it vague. It’s better if you vent towards a friend group. Set up a skype group or a discord server with your pals and make a channel for venting. That way, your friends can give you needed support, or you can let it out in a safer environment.
How much info is too much info?
“Hello I’m Jooj, I’m an 18 year old artist from somewhere in the depths of the USA. ” This is a good snippit of info. I’m not telling you much about myself, I’m just telling you basic, vague details. If you want, add your timezone. but be vague about specifics. That’s info you can share with established friends if you wish.
“Hello I’m Jooj, I’m 18 and I suffer from Depression and Anxiety so I might be shy. I live in Clearwater Florida with my parents and I’m currently trying to get out of the house and move to Canada. I work at Burlington and it’s fun. Here’s a pic of me ^w^”
That’s excessive. That’s too much. Always keep in mind EVERYONE can see that information.
I’d also like to bring attention to the fact that a lot of people get shit for reblogging things that are for a certain community, such as a person reblogging a post about anxiety. You check the person’s page and they have no information on whether or not they have anxiety. You send them angry mail because how dare they!!!
But that’s not your business. Person might have anxiety, they’re just smart in the sense of personal safety and refuse to share that fact. Why? It’s no one’s business but theirs. And if they don’t have anxiety, maybe they’re educating themselves or their followers. Stay out of it. Mind your business. Same goes for other mental illnesses.
Play it safe, don’t share too much, Anonymity is your friend. You might think it’s ok to share private info because, hey, no one’s gonna abuse you! No way! But, sadly, it happens. It’s better to set the example and play it safe. There’s a reason Anonymity is stressed, and it’s to keep you safe.
Please feel free to add to this.
TL:DR: Tumblr is one of the worst places to be sharing a ton of info about yourself, know the difference between personal and private information, stay anonymous, and please stay safe.
It’s been 2-3 years since I made this tumblr and it’s been quite a journey, and I’m really glad I made it because I found a lot of friends, love, inspiration, and so much amazing and lovely people whom I spend moments with…
There so much I learned, so much I shared, lived, laughed & stressed over about in this blog, even when it was anime related only, you guys were always so nice when I shared my personal posts, when I asked for asks to spend time, that asked me for edits when I wanted to make one but couldn’t decide…
I’ll take all those memories with me now, as I decide on dropping for good this tumblr. Like I said, it’s been a journey, and today this journey comes to an end… tbh I’m not going to delete this blog, after all, I can’t exactly detach myself from it so easily but at the same time I’m not really interested in keeping it updated anymore, it has become a boring thing to do and that’s not supposed to be the purpose of this blog.
I met a lot of great people thanks to this blog, I keep them all in my heart, all of you, Katie, Lelou, Aidah, Sen, Seda, Emma, Kat, Kisa, Momo, you guys, were amazing to me while I was here and I still have contact with must of you outside tumblr and that makes me so happy?!? I’m really happy I can still be friends with you all outside this website and I just can’t believe we have made it this far. I’m really thankful.
Anyway this is really long already so I’m just going to say, thank you for sticking with me all this time, through my Kuroshitsuji, Shingeki, Free!, Tokyo Ghoul, Magi & Bts phases, tbh just by following me I’m really grateful to you.
I hope I didn’t bother any of you with my spam, or with my bts posts when you didn’t want any kpop in your dashboards lmao, seriously, thank you for sticking with me even after that.
I love you all, and if you wanna keep contact or just want to talk to me I’ll leave my current active social media here:
Twitter: http://twitter.com/yoongihearted (warning: I tweet about bts on daily basis lmao)
Thank you so much for this amazing 3 YEARS I LOVE YOU ALL.
I love Journey and Abzu, and it’s my personal headcanon that the two ancient civilizations existed at the same time and had contact.
While the Journey people didn’t seem godless, the Abzu people seemed way more into gods and religion.
Also, it’s obvious that the Journey people had a civil war over recourses, but it isn’t as clear what happened to the Abzu people because we only see one person using a war machine. I like to think a leader of the Abzu people saw the Journey people fighting and decided to control the Abzu people’s recourses to try and prevent it happening to them, but turned into a dictator and things just went downhill from there.
I know the ancients in Journey have white faces, but I think it might be because they’re spirits because they seem to have black faces in the murals.
If one of your friends or family members comes out to you, don’t assume that they are out to everyone else in their life. They’re trusting you, so don’t be the person who unintentionally outs them to someone who doesn’t already know.
One of the things I see a lot of traditional witches shy away from is crystals. Often times, it’s because they’re deemed as very new agey. But, they had associations long before the newer ones. Crystals are stones. They are earth. They are just another rock. But as stones and earth, they can be used successfully in magic. And yes, in traditional/folkloric witchcraft. They were employed by witches and magicians for a long, long time. Take onyx for example. It’s one of my favorite examples of this point. Ask a new age magician and they’ll tell you it’s good for calming and releasing negative emotions. Ask a folkloric or traditional witch and they’ll tell you that onyx is good for killing love, causing nightmares, and housing demons. Onyx is a particularly dark example, but there it is. There are countless others. Amethyst in folklore is said to bring luck and safety to those who travel. Quartz is said to make excellent spirit houses. Lapis Lazuli has long been used as an aphrodisiac and makeup, so it would be great for love and lust spells. Moonstones are great for creating glamours and illusions. The list goes on.
I will admit, I don’t much care for or work with crystals. I have about three that I carry with me and use, only really because each has a personal story. One especially, because it was mined out of the land in my area by a friend and gifted to me.
You don’t have to incorporate crystals in your craft, but it’s something to keep an open mind about. You never know what you could use to spice up your witchery.
