I'm not sure what's going to happen with this blog. I don't want to delete the blog...I enjoy sharing ideas with other mamas, and I just really like documenting our activities. This is the best time of my life, and I don't want to forget a thing. However, the thought of pictures of my child being on websites without my knowledge makes me feel sick. If this childcare owner was willing to steal images to use as her own, then what would stop some pervert from stealing pics from my site. I always thought that since there are so many, many blogs out there that no one would ever bother stealing my pics. Now I know that way of thinking was flawed. I have about 10 posts saved in draft, so I'll go ahead and post them over the next few days, and we'll just see where we go from there. Right now I think we'll try to watermark photos and be more careful about keeping O's face off the blog, but I'm not sure yet what our final decision will be. I just know that I'm really looking forward to having several internet free days at the beach next week!
Thanks for all of your comments and support, and please be aware that if people are stealing my pics then they may be stealing yours, too! It's just a coincidence that a loyal and kind reader recognized that the pics were stolen from my site and then notified me. Without her, I would have NEVER known. Thanks again, Elizabeth!
UPDATE: The owner of the childcare website has emailed an apology to us, and I can't ask for more than that :) She has asked that her personal info be deleted from the comments section, so I will honor this request. Thanks to all of you for your support :)
