Have you ever stopped to Google yourself? Well over the years I’ve occasionally typed my name or blog name into Google and had a look through what was found and to be honest it never really bothered me. That was until today.
I’ve always been open with putting stuff out there onto the net and uploading pictures of my little one, as a proud mummy I enjoy sharing him and his smile with others but I’ve never really stopped to think about what that meant in the long run.
Upon Googling my own name and searching the images, I was confronted with a map of my life, it was literally like I have left footprints everywhere I have stepped. When googling my sons name, he was the first to come up and the amount of images over time that have been collected over the last 20 months was enough to make me really think about what I post in relation to family.
I love my blog, I love blogging and I love my friends but in the interests of my little guy I think I’m going to have to reign in the amount of pictures I freely put out there. Of course I have my personal Facebook which is fine and it’s sad that I’ve had to come to this decision but the Internet really is a worry when with one click on a search engine can get you information on birth dates, addresses, schools then that’s a bit worrying.
So I urge you to go google yourself if you haven’t before, it’s a real eye opener!
