2023 RRBC 30-DAY BLOGGING CHALLENGE

Monday, January 23, 2023

Hello, friends!

On a more serious note, tonight I’d like to share the dangers of sharing your kids on the internet; young kids AND your adult kids.  As many of you know, I am an extremely private person and one who believes that some of you, my dear friends, share just a tad bit too much.  I am excited to see photos of you sharing your time with family and friends, and the babies, etc., but, in my mind, before sharing, I assume that you have given serious thought to the repercussions that come along with that over-sharing of info.

Aside from sharing too much about your young kids, their full names, what sports they play, what school they play those sports out of, etc., some of you also tend to share too much about your adult kids, as well; where they work, where they live, where they’re moving, and so much more information that makes me shriek in fear for you… and for them.  People, when are you going to realize that all that over-sharing is dangerous?

I’m a proud mama just like every other parent, and they don’t even come any prouder than this, but, can you point to any time where I have given away anything that was too private?  Or, even close to being private?  N O P E!  Because I don’t do it!  I value my family’s privacy; I value their safety; I value their security.  I don’t even share our pet’s full names, that’s how much I value safety and security.

So, the next time you feel like sharing, take a page from my book and remember that less is always enough!  And if you aren’t sure just how much less is good enough, shoot me an email and I will gladly steer you in the right direction!

Pat Garcia put on an amazing session at last year’s WRITERS’ CONFERENCE & BOOK EXPO on VPNs.  I hope you took it (and I also hope you are now protected).

  1. Hello Nonnie. We can never have enough knowledge on this topic. I am going to go back and review my platforms to see if I’m sharing more than I need to. Thanks for the reminder to be careful.

  2. Thanks, Nonnie! We live in dangerous times, but it’s still easy to forget that when we’re posting about our family. This is a great, and chilling, reminder.

    Blessings!

  4. The trend to put baby pictures on the internet every month up to a year or two and then every “first” all the way through first days of each school year makes me cringe. Some even include their children’s list of favorites: favorite color, favorite class, favorite food etc. With all that detail, it isn’t difficult to locate the children and convince them that their parents sent the stranger to pick them up from school. It also makes it easy to figure out how to meet the child, in person or on line. Because they know so much about the child, it isn’t a problem to say all the right things.

  5. Hi, Nonnie,
    I so agree. Less is always more than enough, especially when sharing kids’ photos or stories about them.
