My husband knows about this blog, however he doesn't read it (so he claims) and very rarely will he specifically tell me not to blog about something (typically something embarrassing that he's done) but I always try to think to myself "would it bother me if he wrote that about me on the Internet?" before I post anything about him. The same goes for my son. I would never want him (or his friends or future wife) to read this blog when he's older and be embarrassed or upset about what I put out there for the world to read or see. At the same time I do view this blog as a diary of sorts. As a memory keeper since I am horrible about writing things down and my memory is shit. I also don't ever want to sugar coat things or put on an appearance of having some picture perfect life by only posting the good stuff, because I don't, and because I think it's important to also remember the bad times, the hard times. It's how you grow and how you learn.
I read a lot of blogs and there are many (that shall remain nameless) where I just shake my head at the stuff they put out there for everyone, including their children when they are older, to read. Yes you can delete posts but nothing is ever really gone from the Internet and considering how much more advanced our children are with technology nowadays I'm sure it wouldn't be hard to find these things.
So basically I've been wrestling with how much I really want to put on here in regards to my relationship with my husband and my child and his development. Yes these are my stories to tell but they are their stories as well.
Where do you draw the line with what you post?
