I’m conflicted, about a lot of things with this whole blogging gig. I love sharing pictures of my boys, I really do, but I’m getting worried about who’s looking at these pictures….especially after I received an inappropriate comment on Instagram about one of my nursing pictures. As a result…I won’t be posting my breastfeeding photos anymore, and I’ve made my Instagram private. At the time, I didn’t think anything of it. I love watching Archer’s peaceful face, the way he holds his hair while he nurses and the silly eye rolls and even the milky smiles he gives. I didn’t think that they could be considered “sexual” at all, the thought never crossed my mind and when I was nursing Nolan I never experienced that so it made me feel really uncomfortable.
And it’s made me double think about posting pictures twice here too. I don’t want to stop posting pictures because I love sharing how adorable my kids are, but at the same time I’m uncomfortable with who might be out there…you know?
I feel like I focus too much on the number here, the number of page hits, of followers, and I feel like I’m not really writing for me anymore. I’m also feeling type-casted here, I feel like I’ve fallen too deep into the “mommy blogging” pit and that I can’t find my way out. I created a different blog and I’ve really fallen in love with it. I love the title, I love that I feel like I can write about anything and write however I want. But I’m not sure I want to bring everything over, right now it’s pretty “anonymous”, I’ve been calling the boys by their initials instead of their full names, and I haven’t posted any pictures [of them] because I’m not sure I want it to go that way. Right now, it’s a “secret” blog and who knows, it might stay that way. For now, anyway.
But I still love this blog. I love that I can write about our daily adventures, and I do still love sharing pictures (even if I’m now second guessing this decision). For now, I’ll continue posting here (and on the other blog) and I’ll think more about what I want to do. Don’t worry, I’ll keep you all informed 😉
Also; you should note that I’m tired of winter and here’s why:
