My husband has put his figurative foot down. No posting pictures of our children on the internet.
My main plan with this blog was to be fairly anonymous so that I can post my beefs and gripes without fear of repercussions. I can be, at times, candidly honest on this page with regards to family and friends. No I know my mom's old adage 'if you can't say something nice, then don't say it at all'. But really, some times you just need to b#@*h. Really get it off my chest and suddenly, I feel just a little bit better. I would; however, feel absolutely mortified if my BIL & SIL knew how I really felt about their germaphobe behaviour. (see earlier posts).
I digress. I have been reading many other blogs online and love to see pictures of people's families etc and have been thinking of posting several of my kids now and then of their more zanier antics etc. My husband disagrees.
He was listening to the radio on his way home and heard a report about how bad guys (translation - perverts) are taking photos of kids off the net and using them for their own purposes, posting them in other places etc. Because let's face it, most of us don't know how to protect our photos from being "borrowed" like the really smart people do.
In fact, if you do an image search on google with the words, children, girl, playing, names etc... you actually pull up a photos of kids from various peoples webpages and blogs. Kind of creepy if you think about it. So I don't know how to stop that from happening. Maybe it mainly has to do with the description of the photo... I don't know. Maybe it's just a matter of not doing head shots, again, I don't know.
If anyone out there has any suggestions I'd love to hear it.
