SO this is something you may have noticed if you're a super internet stalker- I took down all of the pictures of myself and my family from my blog.
WHY?! Why.. well... holy crap I'll just tell you. I had a run in with a super psycho blogger and it freaked me the hell out. Maybe it was because I was pregnant and feeling vulnerable. Maybe it was because this person is actually crazy and is reading this right now (hey crazies, get out!) Bottom line was that I felt that not only were people watching me but people were also lying about who they were to watch me more... it was unsettling.
The thing is though, my favorite blogs show pictures of themselves without really hinting at being afraid at all. It feels good and personal seeing them. Hell, I've watched people's kids grow up over their blogs over the years. I feel like I know them and yeah that probably is what keeps me coming back.
(That's a picture of me and the new baby, by the way. Yeah he is totally squishy cute!)
So the real question here is - would YOU post pictures of your family online for any and everyone to see? Why or why not?
