Nothing on the Internet Goes Away
I was talking with some parents online about the importance of discretion when writing about your children on the internet. I have heard it referred to elsewhere as limiting their "digital footprint" (disclaimer: I'm not endorsing the site). For this reason, I have chosen not to use my son's name or post any pictures on this blog, although I certainly understand people who do. I spent some time yesterday cancelling some old accounts and searching on google to see just how much of my information is available out there. If you do put pictures on your blog, here are the instructions for how to disable right click copying to make them more secure.
