If there’s one thing that the readers of Liz Strauss’s Successful Blog know very well is the inherent danger in checking that little box below the comment form that say’s "Notify me of further comments via e-mail". It ought to have a flashing red alert icon next to it that states "Do so at your own risk" next to it. It’s how she moves into your computer!
Liz is always saying how she’s living inside your computer and when you first turn it on in the morning, it wakes her up. I tend to believe this, the inside of my computer has never been so clean and organized in ages which is about the last time I opened it up. And I finally figured out how she does it. It’s that darn check box! Check it just once and it’s too late–when that next comment gets posted and is downloaded into your email, she’s there!
Looking around the inside of your precious computer, she begins to set up housekeeping and your life will never be the same again. You’ll start thinking about community and how you can change the world. You’ll begin thinking in metaphors and trying to think inside out. You’ll catch yourself attempting to find new ways to relate to others. Then when you least expect it, you’ll realize that you’ve been branded an SOB!
But just as you begin to think you can deal with all this and that you’re life can continue on as it used to–you’ll find yourself…going back for more and checking that little box once again. By that time she’s got the furniture in and ordering up cable. You’re HOOKED!
And there’s no going back because she’s inside your computer and it’s all because you checked that little box.
I should know…I did. And my life hasn’t been the same since.
