Why do you hide your face?

I stay anonymous to hide from:

a) crazy internet stalkers – you never know who could be reading! and

b) anyone who ever googles me in my professional capacity. I want my personal life to stay separate!

Initially I hid my face in fear that I’d vent about something or say something about people in my life and someone would recognize me. Then I realized there’s nothing I’ve said here or will say that I need to be ashamed of and I want to be able to show my face in my dress with my veil and ask Bees’ opinions of my makeup trial and stuff so I stopped blurring it out 🙂

Audrey2:  if your name is anonymous how could they google you? I’m just curious…could they google via image search? Also I’m pretty sure we’re date twins lol 🙂

I’ve covered my face in my dress pics because when the style of my dress is entered into google it comes up with my picture. I worry that my FI or guests would see me in my dress before the big day. I know its unlikely but I’m a paranoid kind of person lol

Google image search reveals quite a bit if you have the same pictures on Weddingbee and Facebook. I used to share more pictures but then I started reaching out for advice for situations that I did not want people IRL to find out about so I removed them.

There have been people who have literally looked bees up on facebook and told their family what they have been writing on her.

Not to mention a certain site that likes to read the bee and then gossip about it like Star magazine.

I do it because DH asked that I make myself “less identifiable” due to the fact that I say some not nice things on here and heaven forbid someone (*cough* his mom) finds it! Bwa haha!

Songstress_7:  you can google search by putting in an image. It’s pretty cool actually! But it also means if someone takes your facebook profile pic (if it’s your face) they could do a search using it and it would bring up pictures of you. 

MrsUPS:  I block out my face JUST in case someone who I know comes across my dress pick on this site. I don’t want anyone to see it before the wedding. I blocked out my mom’s face when I posed her in her dress because I didn’t ask her if it was okay to post her on here. That was out of respect.

MrsUPS:  My sister posts here, and knows who I am on here, but I do not want anyone else that I know IRL finding me on here. I try not to post anything that I would be “ashamed” of someone finding, but not all of my past posts (especially my waiting bee days) are things that I would have said to anyone IRL.

I have seen a couple (here and there) not so friendly comments about bees’ appearances on here, and knowing that being blind in one eye (very noticeable–bullied for it throughout my life) contributes to my “weird” appearance, I would rather not expose myself to possible snarkiness about something that is out of my control.
