Yesterday I received a very surprising email. Here’s just a snippet of it:
I did a google image search for “hold the pickles” (check out my latest blog to see why**) and on the first page there is an image of a cute little boy wearing a shirt, a diaper and tennies from your “hold the pants” posting. I was so surprised to do a random search and have Nate’s picture pop up.
I was filled with mixed emotions. I didn’t know whether to laugh or be a little scared. I suppose it’s because of the relationship between blogger and google but wow. The idea that my son’s picture pops up in people’s random searches just because I posted it on the blog is well, I just don’t know. . . . I don’t mind Jennifer using it, but I’d rather not have a stranger use my son’s picture.
Needless to say, this reaffirms my decision to keep family pictures a bit more private. I have every intention of keeping pictures of Nate and other family related things password protected. Again, I should be getting that password out to non-family via email in the next week or two.
