I guess you could say I've done a little bit of everything. It's a living. Lately it's been caregiver and sometimes photographic model. Neither of them pays much, if anything.
If you would rather not see shared music from Youtube, drop me a line and I'll put you in the "No, Thank You" circle. It just means you won't see them anymore. If you don't say anything, you go into the "Yes, Please" circle and get videos up the wazoo most of the time when I'm in the mood for it.
Your profile and about section had better provide some evidence that you are a real person. That means maybe sharing some thoughts or interacting in a meaningful way, if not with me, then with other people in your circles. If you have nothing in your profile or only reposts of other peoples' material, I'm going to have to assume you are a bot, and will not circle you. This usually includes a bunch of initial posts tagging someone and saying "Hey, +********, what's up?" If you lurk but do not interact, it's a little stalker-ish and creepy and I might have to uncircle you for that as well. I unhoop empty suits as a matter of policy.
I don't actually believe anyone who calls themselves a "social media marketing expert" or anything like that. I certainly have no intention of giving someone like that access to me.
DO NOT use my comment threads to hawk your product. I will delete them every time I find them, and I'm going to try very hard to do it before anybody sees it. If it happens twice from the same person with no other interaction, that person will be blocked and I will say very unkind things about your product breaking or spontaneously bursting into flames and being responsible for a rising list of casualties. If I'm feeling really ambitious, I might even appeal to other people to spread the word about your dangerous and toxic product so that nobody makes the mistake of buying it. (Does not apply to things made by actual friends of mine. Peddle away in good health.)
I also don't as a rule add anyone to my circles who is under the age of 18, because sometimes what I share is not appropriate for people in that age group. Don't take it personally if I don't circle you for that reason.
If you're a guy, I don't want to see yours and I'm not going to show you mine. I didn't come here to hook up with some strange. Again, nothing personal.
If you're religious and you're thinking of adding me to your circles, be aware that I'm an atheist. Don't try to convert me. If that's a problem for you, or you don't like having someone disagree with your faith, I might not be an appropriate choice to add to your circles in the first place. If you quote scripture in any comment thread of mine, I'm going to ask you to explain it in your own words and how it's relevant. Self-determination is something I hold dear. I like to make up my own mind about things. In real life, I keep a bucket of water next to the door for missionaries and traveling salesmen. I don't change out the water, I just top it up. I think right now it has a couple of dead spiders in it.
Otherwise I'm fairly easy-going. Just participate and have fun with it.
I circle people back after they interact on my posts and I have a chance to get to know them. I don't circle everyone back. Sometimes when I feel that they've come into a thread out of the blue and been obnoxious or had a chip on their shoulder, I block people outright. It's my prerogative, at the end of the day, what goes on in my threads and what doesn't.
