So you’re on a couple of thousand Twitter lists. So you write for on online social media news portal. So you got a couple of hundred Diggs of your latest blog post.

You may own a little piece of the Internet, but the Internet’s a pretty big place and your little piece is swallowed up by it.

Start being real and less bragtastic and we might stop calling you out on your claims, then you won’t have to write about it to elicit sympathy. Really, you’re not that big a deal.
