I'm Andrea, and this is my personal blog. Thanks for being here! I usually post on Fridays and Sundays, when I share something that makes me happy or a spiritual thought for the week. Sometimes I manage to squeeze in another post or two.

Something We Should All Think About

I just posted on my homeschool blog, which means that I wouldn't ordinarily make a post here tonight. But something came up over there that I think I should mention here, too.

This is important to me, and it's something that I take very seriously. Some of you guys are my friends, and I want us all to be safe. Some of you are people that I don't know but are probably lovely people. I know that there are several people who read this blog that I don't know. My site stats show that.
And the thing is, some of you (sorry) might not be lovely people. That's why I'm careful about what I post here--for example, why I don't use Little Boy's real name.
Microsoft has some good, straightforward information on blog safety. Scroll down to "Basic Guidelines for Bloggers." It's information that you're supposed to tell your kids, but these tips really go for everyone.
And here's a more personal take from a fellow blogger. Scary, but worth reading.


  1. I guess that's the risk we blogger's take when we blog publicly.

    If you blog for posterity like a journal or something then you can keep your blog private.

    If you like the comments and feedback then I guess you just have to be careful what you put out there.

    I have no doubt there are internet crazies lurking around.

    Thanks for sharing her post, it makes you think!

  2. I started my blog using my daughter's real name...and have since changed it a few times. But, yes, this is VERY important.

  3. Would this be a bad time to post your address? Just checking. ;)

    I think we have to think, "If I was an internet crazy... would this help me get to the person?" then don't include that if the answer is yes in anyway!


Please, chime in!
