Have you ever gotten negative feedback from a family member about your online activity? Somehow, my mom, (the least tech-savvy person I know), found my blog via a friend.
She’s shocked that I would put such “sensitive information” out onto the internet like dresses I’ve tried on, my thoughts about budgeting for the wedding, and so on. I know there are privacy concerns, but I’m a big girl and certainly won’t be taking my blog down because of it. I tried to explain that blogging is a generational thing, so many people do it now that it isn’t necessarily “sharing too much” or anything like that.
Has your family been supportive, if you’re a blogger?

I’ve heard that from a few family members and friends before. I think it has more to do with their comfort level being different than mine. I think saying, “How could you post this so publicly!” means, “I could never post this.” Different people are willing to share different depths of information. I know a lot of bloggers that share a lot more than I do, but I know bloggers who share even less.
More importantly, for every person who “doesn’t get it,” I think there are so many more who do! I’d like to think that my blogging has helped other people with their wedding plans. If anything, it definitely opened me up to a wonderful community and helped me to organize my thoughts!
Just do yo thang 🙂

Here’s the thing that the generation behind us figured out already: privacy does not exist anymore.
I think it’s better to put information out on your own terms as opposed to having someone else tell people about what you’re up to (via Facebook).

Thanks for the input, ladies! I do think our generation is a lot more comfortable sharing things, but we also might not realize how we should protect ourselves. It’s certainly a very different set of information/facts about myself than Facebook would show, etc.
