So My Reader’s Won’t Think It’s Out Of My Character That I Goggled Myself Today…..
Reason I made an account and participated in a diary on Proust.com: Half Writing Exercise, A Quarter In Preparation for A Thesis That Was Based On Biographical Anecdote’s and Content, and the rest of the reason I contributed was because it’s a good tool to jog your memory on all the horrible or memorable stuff that has happened in your life. There are two options for your diary.
Private – This means unless you email your friends or family with a permission email to view your content it remains private. You can also give permission to other Proust.com members in which they are allowed to see your diary content.
Public: This means your all out there. Your diary or whatever content you put in this pertaining to the Q&A diary part is available to everyone. If you choose this option more power to you, I do the same kind of things on my blogs. The difference is though, I decided to allow the option to embarrass or speak my mind on my blogs. I didn’t however invite anyone to view it. I especially didn’t invite friends or family because they get enough of my open dialog – I left them out of it. I didn’t meet any fellow Proust members to request.
I Goggled my name and screamed when it was right under my LinkedIn Link! And then did it again and it was above my LinkedIn. Here is what came up when I searched:
“Kelly S****** Proust” (no quotations)
BTW: (Nice Try LOL I Removed The Link’s And Deleted My Account)
The words used in the search that are highlighted were ?’s in a yes or no format, or questions Proust.com formulated on their site. I don’t use the word, “Bookworm,” for example because I am not five, a worm, or a loser just crazy remember?

So yea pretty bad right? The links go to a page that doesn’t display the content because I deleted by account but before that you would know I guess what puts me in a funk whatever that is. The terminology was devised on words that you don’t ever use or put in front of how you feel but, kind of know what the word represents.

MY CEDAR CLOSET.
IN GOING WITH THE THEME AND THIS POST I AM GOING TO SHARE A PIC OF MY CEDAR CLOSET PHOTO. I USED PICASSA TO MAKE MORE NEON PINK. I THINK THE PURPOSE WAS FOR BOMBSHELL OUTLET – “Proof Of CEDAR…in hot pink..at a customer request.” People want stuff stored in cedar and I was lucky to move in and see this beauty.
This Proust.com Situation Should Teach Everyone A Lesson:
Don’t Do An Online Diary Unless You Want It Public-Settings Don’t Mean Anything. Try Blogging And Only Posting Sober or Saving the Post For A Few Day’s Before Publishing It.
If you want a diary keep a notebook or email yourself because online diaries such as Proust, lie when you put your setting to “by invitation only.”
Thank God I already expose my life so the release of this didn’t cause to big of a paranoia induced panic. (I am dramatic). Now, I deleted my account and it appears to be gone. I kind of want to log back in and copy my diary and put it up here. Why would I do that? Because it is my work, and also because the intention of this post is to inform those who would die if they found their diary on a Google search without permission. I want to get rid of my information – or try to from Proust. Deleting the account doesn’t delete the entries so I have just realized as I write this that I need to go in an erase everyone. Damn!!!!
I will post the diary in this post and a new one if I do this
Well if you got a chance to read it please tell me if it was any good at least? Was it lamb? Let me know.
OK SO FIRST DELETE YOUR ENTRIES THEN DELETE YOUR PROUST ACCOUNT! If you don’t care your life story is out there then at least close the account and put it up somewhere where you could make $5 rather than let Proust show cast your favorite memory at 15!

I try to manage my professional and personal life online believe it or not and when I find something odd I always take it down but today this took the cake!
Summary If Your Still Confused:
As I said, I try and manage it even though I have made mistakes. This is something I found today that threw me into a mini fit. Two years ago I was still in college and completing a thesis that included writing a structured biography centered around my topic. There were exercise websites and little online tools the professor suggested we complete during our break before we begin the thesis. One website was called, “PROUST.com.” It took me an hour or two to fill out all the questions and under my settings (double checked today) my information was only available to family or friends I invited by email and accepted my invitation. I NEVER SENT OR REQUESTED anyone and didn’t even enter any email address on the site except mine to login.
PROUST HELP FAQ’S:-Or Lie #1 In MY Opinion-Allegedly…
Your story is automatically set to be viewed by just your Proust friends and family only. If you decide to change this setting to include “everyone”, then your entries are public on the internet.
My Settings Were Set to be viewed just by my Proust friends and family – I HAD NO PROUST FRIENDS AND I LEFT MY FAMILY OUT OF THIS. So no members were invited.
Everyone was the option I did not choose and when I logged in today after realizing it was public on the internet, I checked and my settings were still set to the invite Proust friends and family only.
I Can’t Believe After All The Stuff I Put Up On The Internet That Has Been A Mistake This One Snuck Up And Bit Me.
Today, my questions and answers were live for anyone to view in Google search for my name! Luckily my I remembered what email address I used for that account and when I logged in my settings were still set to invitation only! I deleted my account but unfortunately for them, they had to be in the wrong place at the wrong time when I joined because I am not just going to forget it. This is a site meant to keep personal diary like entries about your life and growing up and it’s broadcast? If you use Proust.com your live and the name of your first pet, first kiss, and embarrassing moment type questions you answered might be right under your LinkedIn! I am not embarrassed as much as angry because other people are getting doped into thinking their online diary might at least require and third page Google search.
- Will you please stop showing your members information? WTF? You have them answer now live; questions like, “Were you scared or confused when you started your period. Why? Who did you tell first?” The settings don’t say, “Just kidding, your live on Google bitch!” If you put invite only that doesn’t mean you guys can put people on our diary guest list. I don’t know why you guys let this happen and if you lost money from your business or Proust.com, that isn’t anyone’s fault but the writer of those questions who put’s in words like, “Bookworm,” and “Funk,” into a Q&A! I didn’t put up the boo-knew dollars to front this project! It was half way decent minus the writing and a few weird “this is pointless,” items.
- Next time choose the sex industry for exposing other’s because people will want to come back. Anyway I deleted my account so who knows if that will help, and now I have to back and see if I can delete all my shit because (even if that gets rid of it) God knows, you might make it into a shredded paper art piece..I don’t know.
- You will be hearing from me. If your reading this than you just figured out that your live on the internet! I could have written this post by the standards of invitation to read only. I could have just warned other “Proust friends,” I never made. Sadly, even though this post might now do a damn thing, I still know that (as you do) you ran into the wrong bitch today.
- If your laughing knowing that I cannot do anything, then know I am laughing because there is always a chance this could do something. People are crazy out there remember? Now you have got crazy people who have live diaries out there.
Your Lucky I already openly embarrass myself already online or you would be taking sedative by now.
To the Proust.com Family: You have my permission to clip this article and put it your diary.
