...sure, the title is an oxymoron, but it does capture the essence of blogging doesn't it?
Here I am, posting snapshots of my world... to the world... for all eyes to see.
Am I that vain. or. reckless. or. apathetic about who looks in this nest?
No. I share what beauty inspires my world, in hopes it may inspire yours too.
I love my family.
I love creating.
I love pondering.
I love documenting it all in photos.
I share those things freely, whether or not anyone cares to read it (but I'm delighted that you do!).
If I post something here, it's because I'm willing/wanting to share it.. so the notion of 'watermarking' my pictures in the past never really stuck with me. I figured if someone wants to steal my photos/d.i.y's... no big deal. This post I read today got me thinking about it again though. Maybe I need to be less naive, maybe I should put in place a simple guard like these water-marks on my photos:
I've never liked watermarks... I found they distracted from the picture. But, I also want to be more proactive about my online presence.
So which font do you prefer to see from now on here?
You're the reader, you can choose: top = stitched font
or lower = stylised font. Most votes wins.
Where do you draw the lines of over-exposure, paranoia in an online world?
I never want to post pictures of my kids all nay*ked on here because that's crossing the line in my books. (Yes, I'm even spelling the word wrong because Google will send predators here with just that word search - be aware parents).
Now, in light of such censorship for the sake of caution... there's just one more thing:
....this photo cracks me up!!
I kept wanting to share it for months... but well, you see the dilemma.
She was convinced she could fly if she flapped those feathers hard enough..
...I think she just might have.
Lastly, for those of you who are here because you do care about our family,
enjoy the pictures, or get inspired to create... thank you for being here!
(Any and all other scum.screwballs.stinkers can vacate immediately).
Thank you. That is all.
