Do Bloggers Share Too Much Information?

Will they look back on this?

With my oldest son… I kept a record of everything.  First tooth, rolling over, and all those things you typically record down in a baby book.  With my middle son I totally slacked off, and this time around I have started to use my blog, and family blog as a form of record keeping for all of my children.

There is a lot of people who are doing the same thing, at least I have noticed, and it has sparked a completely different discussion about sharing too much information on the internet about your children. For me it has never been a really big issue. I am not really worried about people on the internet or their intentions.   It may sound carefree, or irresponsible, but I have been around the block long enough to have tough skin.  In my opinion, when you are a blogger, you have to have tough skin!

But last night I took to twitter, and facebook to see how other moms, and bloggers feel about sharing information about your children, and blogging about your children for essentially the whole world to see.

I got mixed reviews, but for the most part everyone generally felt the same way.  It is acceptable and most have started blogging in the place of baby books!

How do you feel about the amount of information Mom bloggers are putting out there?

    @MamaMommyMom on twitter said: I do & I use real names. Anyone that wanted to find the information out badly enough could anyway. It's all public record (regarding privacy)

    Anjie Orlowski on Facebook said: Yes, I guess we do but in the end does it really matter? Not very many people read my blog and I do it mainly for myself and them. It's like a baby book or a journal for me and one day they'll be able to read it and have these memories to look back on.
