I have a question for all those bloggers out there. What are your blogging boundaries? Do you worry about your safety?

I would like to start a blog. I'm just trying to establish boundaries with it. I am going to discuss this with my husband but I thought I'd see what everyone else thought as well.

Would you discuss and post pictures of your children? Your house? Your spouse? Where do you draw the line with what you share?

Been blogging since 2003. Building an audience has been harder than deciding what not to write about.
I'm trying to be found, I have stuff to sell. I don't worry about safety much. Once the animal rights crowd got on DH's case, I realized that doxing is out of my hands already. If I were worried, I wouldn't blog.
I don't blog that I'll be traveling, though, if the house will be empty. Usually.
Permie-Inspired rule: never suggest that anyone in my family is less than perfect (except myself).
Asked DH how he wanted to be called. First initial was his choice.
We don't have kids. That would make it more difficult.

I figure my husband can make up his mind but the kids are very hard. I do most of my stuff with them, and for them, so I would have a difficult time cutting them out. Just looking through pictures of my trees from last year included the kids in most of them. They're just there, wanting their picture taken. So do I put that online? I don't know.

One of our members here has an entire YouTube channel starring his ridiculously photogenic children. But he's understandably very careful not to share specific location information.

I have a few blogs, I haven't done much with them lately. One, http://nichehow.blogspot.com is just my two cents on things. Another, http://feddersenfamily.blogspot.com I used to share pictures and short videos of our new son. Haven't done much with it lately.

My niece set up one to share her trials of mothrrhood and being a wife, http://aslightlybetterwife.com she shares girl stuff, kid stuff/she homeschools, recipes.

Facebook has become such a magnet for posting things but I really hate how relationionships appear tight but are just... not.

May GOD grace you with a great blog.

I saw the other reply before it was deleted, basically giving my address. That isn't going to be something people have to try. I intend the blog to be a marketing tool for the U-pick I'm hoping to open. As such it will have our address on it, directions even.

My big concern is that my kids are small now, but they won't always be. So how will being on my blog impact them and how do you make that determination?
