This is just an FYI on posting personal information.
I know everyone is exited about weddings, showers, babies, etc., but it really concerns me when posters post their addresses, phone numbers, etc., along with their pictures of themselves, others, and/or children.
Please be cognizant of the fact that it isn’t just the bee’s looking at your information.
And please don’t take this the wrong way, I love reading and looking at everyone’s information and pictures. I am just concerned that with posting real dates, real times, real addresses, etc., that the wrong people could get a hold of your information.
Remember to white out information that you don’t want everyone in the world to know. And remember too, that once you post something on the internet; no matter where you post it, or even if you later delete it, it will still be there somewhere.

Well said! Same for facebook and other social sites – you never know who’s reading this.

Pictures to me are okay, but as for personal information I would prefer it to be sent via PM if needed.

I was definitely a lot more ambiguous before I was married. Now, I don’t care if someone sees what date I got married! I definitely post pictures, though! =

Very good advice. My invitations I changed our names and other information before posting. I try to be careful about writing too much too

Good advice. I accidentally posted my wedding website on one of my previous posts, but didn’t catch that in time to change it/delete it. Does anybody know if there’s a way to edit one of your posts more than an hour after you posted it? Or deleting it altogether?

I don’t think I’ve ever come across a post containing someones address and/or phone number! I see the invitations and STD’s but never without blurring that info. Yikes! I don’t mind pictures but that other stuff is just asking to be the plot of a law and order episode.

Great post! My Fiance is way more private than I am so I can’t post any proposal pics, etc… I’ve posted my pic, but I still feel weird about it sometimes. And I have my name and city in my username! That’s what I get for picking it before I lurked more.

Good thing to think about! I posted a thread about wedding websites and privacy a while back and was surprised at some of the “what bad things could come of posting personal info?” type responses.
Also think about your username. If its something that you use on multiple sites, people can piece together who you are with a simple Google search.

I concur. People should be especially careful when posting pictures of other people, ESPECIALLY children. I won’t allow any photos of my son on the internet, and I make a point to mention it to any of my family members who are taking pictures of him. It’s unfortunate, but there are creeps out there, and it’s certainly not a chance I am will to take, regardless of how paranoid it seems.

I’m in the same boat as ejs.
