I thought I was getting much better at this online blogging thing. I was actually even kind of proud of myself when I learned how to put pictures on (knowing I don't even have a digital camera). However, when my son came to me and asked if he could have a MySpace page I panicked.

Me: Ummmm....NO!
Ty: Why NOT? Alex and some of the others have one!!
Me: Ummmm....So?
Ty: That doesn't seem fair.
Me: You're too young, and the truth is...I DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT MYSPACE!! Is your homework done? (That one gets the subject changed every time)

Whew!! Crisis averted...for the next week...until the next time it comes up.

So, here I this internet world. I've been writing more, doing research, why not see what I can find out about MySpace? Well, what I've learned is that...I know nothing!!

It is a pretty cool networking tool (not telling you anything new I'm sure). I located friends from college, once I started my own page. That's a funny thing because then I felt compelled (obsessed) with trying to make my page look kinda normal. You know, like I didn't just stumble into the site? (Like I did) I don't think I've fooled anyone and again, I couldn't even do a search to find myself.

Ahhhhhh....the perpetual search of finding one's it truly in a fortune cookie?? I don't think it's in MySpace...maybe it's just in MyCookie! Now there's a network!!!

I have never visited My Space although I certainly have heard about it...there are many horror stories that have passed through my school. Especially about underage kids posting inappropriate stories and photographs. But I suppose, like so many things, it just requires heavy parental monitoring. The job can be tiring, can't it?

If you let him do it, make it on the condition that he adds you as a friend. That way you can always go to his page and see what he has done and who he is talking to.

Mrs. G;

I did find some boys in my son's Boy Scout troop, one of them is pretending to be 17, and he's only 14.

Thanks for the advice...that's a good idea to keep in mind.
