I have been sitting here typing away for a blog post on taking the kids to the farm. The post is mostly done but for some reason I can’t hit publish. I am torn between whether or not to continue posting pictures of my kids in my blog posts. The world is a scary place and I honestly do not know what to do here. When I started blogging I really didn’t think about how posting pictures of my kids would affect them, but now with the oldest and her recent issues, I am not so sure it is the right thing,
I think about the possible public humiliation or embarrassment. My kids do not know that I write about them. It is not necessarily a secret that I have kept or anything, I just blog when the kids are asleep so they never see it. Could someone steal my pictures? I a sure they could, so that is scary in itself. Could someone figure out who they are and target them somehow?
I am semi anonymous in my profile. My last name is not located anywhere on my blog, however my family and friends know that I blog. How do you protect your kids privacy but still be able to write like you need to? I need writing like I need air to breathe and the community at WordPress has been nothing short of amazing!
On the one hand I wonder if it is truly a big deal and on the other I feel like I am hesitant for a reason. How do manage your parenting blog? Do you worry about any pictures you post or do you never post pictures of your kids? I need your advice and thoughts here. Am I just being overprotective and worrying for no reason?
