As much as I am saddened by and despise his actions, I have to agree that the online mauling he and his business are receiving is reminiscent of a mob rule, baying for blood, whilst only knowing the scant facts. Palmer is not a good man, but he is one of so many and it's the practice of allowing hunting for pleasure (of any kind, including fox hunting in the UK) and weapon ownership being so ubiquitous in some places that allow tragedies like this to take place. Surely it is better to attack the underlying causes than demonise a single blunt instrument? Okay, stepping down from my soap box and off to donate some cash to a conservation charity.

Remember to take what you read in the papers/news web and see on the TV news with a pinch of salt. Things are rarely as bad as the scaremongers and media would have us believe.

First craft show of the year at the lovely Somerley Estate, near Ringwood. This is also my first craft show at a National Trust property. The show is on between 10 am and 6 pm, Sat to Mon :-) Hope to see you there if you are in the neighbourhood.

Take a moment to listen to someone; it's truly the only way to learn something new about them.

Gemma Worrall's infamous tweet got me thinking on the importance of managing your online profile & avoiding negative publicity.

Though Gemma Worrall's story is extreme it does highlight how people don't realise the potential size and breadth of their audience, the effect of their words and the potential fall out on themselves.  Here's a few tips to keep in mind before you commit your thoughts to your favourite social media.

Social media is not the same as having a chat with a friend in the pub, at a dinner party or over a cuppa.  

By putting something in writing you are creating a record that can be referred to and shared and re-shared beyond your scope of control and influence rather than a throw away comment to a limited audience that may be forgiven and forgotten.

if your writing is public such as tweets on Twitter and public posts of Facebook/Google+ then it is published in a legal sense, which means you are then opening yourself to defamation and libel laws  should your words be construed as unlawful.

Take a moment to think before you publish your undiluted thoughts and feelings in a public forum. You don't say everything you think and feel in crowded public places, it's time to adopt this thinking for your online as well as offline interactions.
