Internet Wondering

I was about to post some pictures and write about some things.....but there is something I've been
wondering about. Do you ever worry about internet safety? Do you wonder/worry that someone may be
"stealing" your family photos or info?

I ask because I have noticed that this has happened to a couple people and my ears are perking up. I'm not a facebook person so blogging has been a fabulous way for me to keep in touch with you....my family and friends. Going private(as I have done in the past) is an option, but also sort of a pain.

I could keep a blog without any pictures or interesting tid bits.....but what fun would that be?

Just wondering. What do you think? Something to worry about, or no?

I think it is always something to be concerned about and esp. since something crazy happened to me. I think watermarking photos (which I can only seem to remember half the time) across the middle of the picture so it can't be cropped out and not using identifying information helps such as names or specific location. I have started using everybody's real name again in our house except hubby's and of course, I got rid of our last name from the title.

It really does put a damper on blogging but I think there are ways to enjoy blogging safely. There are other things I plan to employ soon....whenever I find the time.

Could we get Disqus installed over here, so I can just 'Like' Tara's comment? LOL!

Watermarking is a good solution for photos, although I'm sitting here wondering why I don't do this for Facebook and that is probably the most unsafe place for them to be. Hmmm...

I was gonna suggest watermarking also, though I have no idea how to use it. I've had the same wondering in the past. I should really just find out how and do it.

Good question. I have also debated this scary truth. Watermarking pictures is reportedly a good tool, if only I knew how. I attempt to be vague about identifying facts. I also tend to be rather naive. I'll be interested to see what you decide. Hugs and blessings,
