Make new friends, but keep the old …

I always enjoy making new friends, and my life, for the most part, is an open book. I can’t wait to tell you the latest cute thing my niece told me or show you the pictures of me out on the town from the weekend before.

However, I also realize that it’s smart to be smart about how I’m sharing the information, and with whom. That said, in the past I’ve been cautious if I receive a friend request on Facebook from someone I don’t know. If you are a real-life friend or acquaintance, or a Twitter bud, or a blog reader, I’m happy to accept the friend request – and that way, I get to know you a little bit, too!

So, if you send me a friend request on Facebook and we haven’t had the pleasure of meeting in real-life, just shoot me a quick note and tell me how you know me … (I read your blog twice a year or I’m HotGuy64 on Twitter will suffice) and I’ll be happy to accept the request.

Oh, and HotGuy64, call me …
