Make sure you check out some of the links. You can even do your own - there are prizes this week if you do to help celebrate!
Now onto my issues.....
Just a brief reminder that everyone linking is pouring their hearts out and we should all be respectful in our comments.
This reminder really shouldn't be necessary, but we're all aware that people can be disrespectful when they're hiding behind the screen.
This is my blog. Well, one of them. There are many like it, but this one is mine. Thanks to a lovely little thing called freedom of speech, I'm free to post what I choose. I am not a fan of drama nor do I like to hurt people. I have never written (nor will I ever) a post with the intent to do one or both of those things. Yet, that is exactly what happened.
The husband was lead to a post I wrote last week on my other blog. Do I care if he reads what I write? No. After all, he's the one that set up my other blog with a custom domain. Does he read my blog? Very rarely. But a few days ago he was directed to what was then my latest post.
He was anything but impressed. I didn't intend for him to be upset. Other SAHMs can most likely relate to the feeling of not having enough help, as was evident in the comments. The husband does more than enough for our family, but some days, I just want someone to take over my job. I don't care if it's Joe Shmoe from down the street!
What this all boils down to is my wondering what I should post and how much information I should throw out there.
When I started my other blog, All You Need is Love, I emailed friends and family and told anyone who would listen about it. I started this blog, Jules Out Loud, because there are some things I just don't feel comfortable having my family read. If any of them have stumbled upon this blog I am not aware of it. However I did have an incident a few weeks ago that made me think otherwise.
Someone searched for "Blog Evonne" and landed here. Yes, my name was in my profile at the time, but I don't use it on this particular blog. My other blog, where my real name is plastered on the bottom of every post, did not yield such a search result.
That really made me wonder who is reading what I have to say. I'm not savvy enough to figure out who searched that, but it did freak me out a bit.
Because we don't know who is reading and what could happen after hitting publish, how do we know when what we put out there is too much?
