The Dangers of Being Creative Online 

So, you are a creative person

You like to make things, whether it's art, music, writing, or something else entirely. You are good at it, too. And you have decided to share your creations with the world online. 

Great! That is awesome. The internet is a wonderful place to share your creativity with others. But there is a downside. The internet is also a beautiful place for trolls and cyber stalkers to find you. 

What is a troll? A troll is someone who enjoys upsetting or annoying other people online. They might post mean comments on your social media posts, or they might even send you threatening messages. 

And what is a cyberstalking? A cyberstalker is someone who uses the internet to track you down and harass you. They might find your personal information and use it to contact you, or they might even try to find you in real life.


So, what is a creative person to do? How can you share your creativity with the world without becoming a target for trolls and cyber stalkers? 

Here are a few tips: 

  1. Be careful what you share. Do not share your personal information online, such as your address, phone number, or where you work. 
  2. Use strong passwords. And do not use the same password for multiple accounts. 
  3. Be aware of your surroundings. If you are meeting someone you met online in person, meet in a public place, and tell someone where you are going. 
  4. Do not engage with trolls. If someone is being mean to you online, do not respond. Just ignore them. 

It is important to remember that most people online are kind and supportive. But there are a few bad apples out there. So, it is important to take some precautions to protect yourself. 

And if you do become a target of trolling or cyberstalking, do not be afraid to reach out for help.

There are organizations that can help you deal with this kind of harassment. 

So, go forth and be creative! Just be smart about it 

 Masquerade Party Ideas 

Masquerade parties are a wonderful way to let loose and have some fun with your friends. They are also a wonderful way to get creative and dress up as your favorite character or fantasy creature. If you are planning a masquerade party, here are a few ideas to get you started: 

Choose a theme 

The first step in planning a masquerade party is to choose a theme. This will help you narrow down your choices for costumes, decorations, and food. Some popular themes for masquerade parties include: 

  1. Venice: This theme is inspired by the famous masquerade balls held in Venice during the Renaissance.
    Guests can dress up as historical figures, such as Venetian nobles or courtesans.
  2. Mardi Gras: This theme is inspired by the annual Mardi Gras celebration in New Orleans. Guests can dress up in colorful costumes and masks. 
  3. Fantasy: This theme is perfect for anyone who loves to let their imagination run wild. Guests can dress up as their favorite fantasy characters, such as superheroes, princesses, or knights. 

Send out invitations 

  1. Once you have chosen a theme, it is time to send out invitations. Be sure to specify that masks are needed. You can also include a costume suggestion on the invitation. 
  2. Decorate your party space 
  3. The next step is to decorate your party space. This is where you can really let your creativity shine. Use candles, beads, and other festive decorations to create a magical atmosphere. You can also hang up banners and streamers with your party theme. 

Supply music and dancing 

  • No masquerade party is complete without music and dancing. Hire a band or DJ or create a playlist of your favorite music. Be sure to have plenty of space for your guests to dance. 
  • Serve food and drinks 
  • No party is complete without food and drinks. Serve food and drinks that fit with your party theme. For example, if you are having a Venetian-themed party, you could serve pasta, pizza, and wine. If you are having a Mardi Gras-themed party, you could serve gumbo, jambalaya, and beignets. 

Have activities planned 

Have some activities planned for your guests to enjoy. This could include games, contests, or a photo booth. You can also have a prize for the best costume. 

With a little planning, you can throw a masquerade party that your guests will never forget! 

Here are a few additional tips for planning a masquerade party: 

  1. Set a budget. This will help you narrow down your choices for decorations, food, and entertainment. 
  2. Plan. It takes time to plan a successful masquerade party, so start planning early. 
  3. Be flexible. Things do not always go according to plan, so be prepared to make some changes if necessary. 
  4. Have fun! The most important thing is to have fun and enjoy yourself.
