I didn't think he even knew the web address, and he didn't...but amazingly, he had the wherewithall to Google "I miss my sanity", and boom, there it was. He was at work, and he wanted the picture of the three girls from our Christmas card for his desktop. I had told him...oh, a long time ago, that I would send him the picture directly from the camera, that way it would be a large enough file to look good on the desktop. Unfortunately, I forgot all about it, so he embarked on a trip into Google-land in search of my blog. Of course, taking the picture from my blog makes it very small and not good for a desktop, so that prompted me to finally send him the larger file.
However, he ended up leaving a comment on this post, which freaked me out a little bit. My first instinct was, "Hey, get out of here, this blog is MINE MINE MINE!" I don't want to feel like I have to censor myself. I don't think there's anything on here
This is silly, right? When I first found out that Danielle had a MySpace account, she was 13. I kind of over-reacted, but in my defense, the age limit was supposed to be 16 at the time. We set some very strict rules, and one of them was that I made my own account, and she had to list me as a friend, and set her profile as private to anyone who was not a friend.
When she first found out that I had read her MySpace page, she was furious, as only a 13 year-old can be furious with a nosy mother. She ranted about how I had invaded her privacy. I pointed out to her that the internet was a public domain, and that nothing on here is private. In fact, it's about as public as it gets.
I suppose the same holds true for me. It's not like I have ever tried to hide the fact that I have a blog, or the name of it. I have read him things that I've written from time to time. I just didn't think he'd ever be interested enough to find it himself, and in reality he probably only wanted the picture. But now I feel like I have to be more cautious, which sort of sucks.
How many of you have a significant other who reads your blog? And how many of you keep it totally private, just for yourself? Just curious.
