Going Private??

Ok, I can't help but notice the sudden increase of people making their blogs private. Am I just ignorant? Is there a reason for the increase? What should I know? Have you had weird things happening on public blogs? Comment or email me with why YOU have gone private. I am curious if there is something I am oblivious to :) heatherhimmer at gmail dot com.

Heather,

The reason I went private, was do to a crazy thing happening on facebook. Some "man" stole pic's of Kaiya and posted them to his facebook page claiming she was his daughter "Ava" and I was his wife. I just didn't want to take any chances because I don't know him or what his motives were.

The guy asked a friend of mine from high school to be his friend. Before she confirmed she looked at his profile and recognized Kaiya and me. She then got a hold of someone else who was able to get in contact with me. The thing that is still scary.....I don't know who he is. He has since changed his facebook name to something else. I am pretty sure they are both fake names and he is just making it up. He could be my next door neighbor for all I know.(CRAZY)

I did mine private because of my boys. I'm afraid of something like Kara's situation happening to me! (Yikes Kara!!) There are some straight up crazies out there that should be shot in the head. seriously..in the head.

I monitor where the hits on my blog come from and I can see if they click on a picture and navigate away from the page, so for the past 6-8 months, whenever there is a picture with ME in it, someone in PLANO clicks on it at least once. At first it didn't really bother me,I hardly ever have pictures with myself in them and we lived in Lewisville for 5 years and grew up in Denton, so, whatever. But this weekend, one of the picture's they clicked on was so OLD, it was from when the girls were two, and I thought, "How long did this person dig for this picture?" It was too much, I just decided I want to KNOW who is looking at my blog and who is scrutinizing ME?

I agree there are a lot of crazys out there and before our baby is born we are going to go private. I just haven't done it yet.
