Just a reminder, or heads up to those not in the know, when it comes to anonymity on the internet. I know some don't care, but others do. If you like to vent (I do!), AND your screenname has your business or personal name in any part of it, be careful. I just Googled a couple of names of recent venters, and the threads from this forum popped right up, front and center. Wouldn't take many clicks to see exactly what they like to chat about. Trust me, brides/clients Google us, just as much as we check them out too. Make sure what they find is roses and sunshine.

"ROSES AND SUNSHINE"

 

$8 a slice...

That's why I use "costumeczar." But if you google my name you'll see a lot of media stuff and a photo of the Elvis impersonator/parody from my wedding since I gave it to the newspaper to use at one point, hahaha!

Great advice....I don't usually vent here, but I will google myself/business just to see what comes up.

Aah, cake. . .the 5th food group!!

Can't remember specifically, but I know more than one decorator here got busted by a googling bride.

Wow! I never even thought about that! Not an issue for me, but still made me think back pretty hard about things I may have said. Good heads-up! Thanks! icon_smile.gif

Exactly.  There have been times I wanted to "vent" but thought better of it.

 

Think it and forget it, write it and regret it.

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

I should add, that I put the word cake on the end of the user names, which is a likely thing for anyone else to add as well, and naturally since this website has cake in the name, it will include any results from here when the query is ran.

there are several other cake businesses out there that share the same name as me, except I have added the name of my town to the end.  Hopefully that won't mess things up for me.  I'm not nearly as concerned from a business perspective as I am from a personal perspective, as my customers all live in my hometown.

I am a testament to this lol. Thankfully it wasn't a client but a family member and it was easily worked out. Now I just completely refrain from ranting in writing

Just googled "sugar rush san angelo" and the first 4 pages of google were pleasing. Then once I got to San Angelo lesbians on pinkcupid.com looking for sugar, I decided it was time to stop.
