From the fake story about a 7 year old boy (in America) who used his dad’s credit card to “buy hookers”, to the reports that certain celebrities who are very much alive and well have passed away, there are one too many business moguls, bloggers, journalists and vloggers who have used such fakery, in a not so discreet attempt, to be recognised as some sort of new school Perez Hilton and/or boost hits to their site!

Some go as to far as to instigate a would-be fake post about themselves to achieve notoriety (would you believe) only to then attempt a u-turn that still goes wrong and sticks like super glue!! Madness! In 2011, I believe, there was a female blogger who uploaded her own ‘sex’ tape as a way to promote an event aimed at young people except it was more of a suggestive video than the

Make no mistake here, folks. I'm a champion of those achieving and succeeding. I just do not support those who “make it” doing the things (or similar) that are mentioned in this post. Fake hair, eyelashes, boobies etc I get (each to their own) but, sharing inaccurate or false stories etc (for personal gain and/or fame) is going way too far!!
Regular readers of my posts will know that I do not expose people (using names) because, I just feel it is so irrelevant and not my place and that’s why, although I felt strongly enough about this matter to blog about it, I have not included names and links referring to those mentioned. The bottom line is this: whatever you are to receive will be yours when the time is right and not before, no matter what! Should you rush things, or take matters into your own hands in a way that is distasteful, as it were, you will do yourself out of such blessings and then some. You may see success, fame and fortune as is no doubt the aim but, due to the way you would have obtained such things, they're likely to be short lived and the eventual backlash you'll face will not ever be worth it. Keep it real! By doing so, you have nothing to lose and potentially everything to gain. Is achieving a hot minute as someone widely recognised worth your dignity or seeing others upset by your fake posts? I don’t think so… Better to reach any aim through genuine effort, hard work and talent than deception! Nobody in their right mind would want to be known for anything other than that which is real, right? *shrug*
