I have been giving the whole public blog sharing the intimate details of not only my life but the life of our two little girls a lot of thought.  I know that today with Facebook and Twitter and Google+ and all the new social media and the way things are out on the open in world wide web it is practically the same thing as running an open blog, but every once in a while (especially after a post about some creepy thing happening) I question what I share and I start to worry.

And then I stop blogging openly.

And then I worry that I’m not blogging and that I won’t have this journal to reply on when I’m inevitable about 3 years behind on their baby books.

And then I worry some more- you know, the usual mom thing.

And while I reorganize the worries in my head, I’m concentrating on photography.

Today I am entering in the I Heart Faces challenge for Smile.  Because how can you not smile looking at that photo?

  1. Oh my! ADORABLE photo!
    That is a lot of things to worry about : ).
    I vote to keep blogging. Your baby will love looking back on it one day and seeing herself grow up!

  2. I too worry about what I am putting out there and often struggle if I should be so open to everything that is going on with my life. It’s such a hard balance. Know you aren’t alone in those feelings!

  3. I’ve followed your blog for a few months and really enjoy the format, as well as your beautiful family.

  4. I know exactly what you mean. I stopped blogging a while ago worrying about so much of myself being out there. I think there’s a fine line between inviting people into your life an oversharing. As long as you stay on the safe side of that line, I say keep going!

    I love this picture, BTW, which is why I came over to leave a comment in the first place. Beautiful moment!

  5. I love your blog and think you have a great balance … Your girls will love to read this journal of their childhood. I struggle with the same thing… And think I’ve over shared so I start writing more on other topics…. And then I think I’m boring …. So I switch back :) I personally love your photography posts!

  6. If laughter had an image, this would be it! I can absolutely hear her through your portrait.

    And I hear you on the issues of how much is too much on the internet. I am pretty open because I want to trust and believe in the good. But I also know there are limits and good sense and protecting my children. Because you are aware and concerned, I think you will find the right path for you!

  7. your blog truly inspired me during my “stuck at home with a two month old” phase. It is pretty, motivating, true, and the babies are adorable. I personally don’t think you are over sharing. But when the kids grow up and possibly hate being an internet celebrity (i doubt it) you can download it all into a book and print it for memories :)
