Me. I'm the opposite of paranoid. And I'm not sure that's totally a good thing or a very bad thing. I just wonder if I'm the only one who feels this way?
I'm talking about posting pictures online of my kids. Even ones like this, in the bathtub, half nekked. It doesn't concern me in the least. Even when I see hits on my blog from weird countries. Doesn't bother me. I'm pretty sure here on my public blog somewhere, there'd be enough information for someone to figure out where we live, if they really wanted to. Or at least places we go everyday. And I'm still not concerned. Statistically, like 98.7% of bad things that happen to children are at the hands of relatives, not strangers. Plus there are 8.9 million blogs out there, so the chances of anything bad happening to my children as a result of this tub pic are pretty remote. They're literally more likely to get hit on the head by a coconut on our next trip to Hawaii. And if all else fails, we're proud gun owners here. Yay 2nd Amendment!
But seriously, I totally understand moms who don't feel this way. Who feel the opposite. The ones who never post their children's names or pictures anywhere online and strive to do what they think will be helpful in protecting them from the crazies of the world. I get it. I'm not judging - saying one way or another is right. We all gotta trust our mama instinct and do what we feel makes the most sense.
