Instead of being overly paranoid, I think I'm just going to be okay with assuming the risks for putting my life out on the internet where the world can read about it. I'll be making some changes here and there, but this blog will stay put, I've decided. My readership has grown considerably since I've started blogging, people I know and those I don't. It only makes sense that I would have to be more aware of that as I continue to write about my life and post pictures of my children. I will do the best I can to protect my family in the process, but I'm just going to keep plugging along as a mama and sharing my experiences with all of you.
It is very strange, actually, to know who is reading this blog. Sometimes I feel like the more I know about who is reading it, the less I want to know! It makes me understand I need to be very careful about what I say, something I never even considered when I first started writing. Putting a blog out there in the world is the blessing and the curse of it, I suppose. Having more readers increases your responsibilities as a writer.
I've very much appreciated the positive feedback I've been getting on my blog. I don't necessarily write for anyone but me (and my family) but the warm fuzzies I get from all the kind words certainly doesn't hurt.
