For all the parents out there, please be aware of recent events over at Little Birds. For the last couple years, Stephanie Barnes has been sharing photos of her crafts and her adorable kids. But she shut down her blog this weekend after learning that photos of her children were copied and used in inappropriate ways. She's not providing details, and doesn't wish to discuss the matter any further.
But we don't need any additional information; this is a warning bell. Our blogs are public. Truly public. I sometimes hear craft/knit/crochet/quilt/etc bloggers say that we're somehow safer because 'outsiders' aren't interested in our niche blogs. But ... we're also more likely to post family photos, so I believe, that makes us more vulnerable.
We live in a scary world. Be careful.
