There's something that's been mulling over in my little mind for the past few days - Would you share your online success with your family and friends?
Say you have a really successful online presence or website - you might be a fantastic blogger with a huge following, or Twitterholic or indeed the latest wonder of the web, some sort of Internet senstation - you get the idea!
Would you allow your family and friends to cash in and link to your website just because of their connection to you? Or would you be more stringent and say hey no, they should find their own way and build their own following/presence!
I know someone that has made a few high profile newspapers in the US on numerous ocassions for their blog articles and has a huge following yet this person doesn't allow friends or family *ahem* to cash in on this success not even a measly link
I can understand all the hard work, effort and talent that has gone into what they have done as it was not an over-night success but personally I would share my success with friends and family no matter what ranking or following I had because morally it's the right thing to do! What do you think?! What would you do if you were in that scenario, perhaps you are already and have no qualms about shutting people out regardless of their connection to you!
Is there a time when you have to draw the line?
Thoughts are welcome!
