How much is too much??

It has come to my attention that it is possible to put too much information on your blog. I do want to ask the question though......can you really? How much is too much? And can you be possibly putting yourself "out there?" Someone close told me that too much info can be dangerous and can lead undesirables to your door. I have pondered this question and have to admit that having read others blogs, there is quite a lot of personal info out there. Too many details of your life could be a danger to you. Am I the only one considering this, or am I being way too paranoid? I don't give my address, family info and personal details, but I would assume in this day and age of electronics, anybody with interest could find just about anything they wanted. If this were to happen, I would diffenently have to ask the question, don't you have anything better to do with your time, fore if you are here reading me, you certainly are a person that needs a life!!
If you love roses, gardening, anything vintage, antique and most diffenently old, you are in the right place. We now have loads in common. My grandmother had the most beautiful rose garden and having lived in downtown Sacto. all my young life, I was surrounded by roses. We were down the street from the Capitol building and Capital Park. Not far from there was the McKinley Park, both having gorgeous, come to Sacto. roses gardens. They are still there today, even more beautiful if that is possible. Roses of all colors and petal size. Something that should not be missed if visiting. If roses are not your flower of choice, how about Camelias. The bushes are so high, you could kink your neck straining to see the tops. Such a lovely flower and no smell. What were the heavens thinking??!! I suppose when I create something using rose fabric, it takes me back to a simplier time, a time of running barefoot, eating popsicles playing hopschotch and just being a kid with no worries or cares.......oh, the good ole days.........remember when?

I've been blogging since August. Too much information? You can put out too much -- if you blog on and on like a huge run on sentence!! I have been to blogs like that and they lose me before I get halfway through - because the writer has lost their whole train of thought and train of the post.

As for what you are talking about -- anyone can "google" something and end up on your blog, but as long as you are being sensible (as you have been from what you said in this post), no harm (and you can delete comments you don't want).

Cyber space is vast and it's really just being sensible...no need to be paranoid. You are here to talk about life, your love of arts/crafts and share your work. It's pretty safe all things considered!!

Sherry/cherie is right. Don't be paranoid, but be cautious. NO addresses or pix of young children. Watch grammar and punctuation also. It's a lost art in this day of cyber space and instant messaging. I use a completely different set of rules when IMing and posting to blogs or letters. Just be cautious, honey!

LOL, I was still signed in as you. Soooo sorry. I'll sign out now. Bye

Sherry/Cherie, thankyou for the comments. My family warns me about posting too much information out there in space, so it's always in the back of my mind. This will not keep me from sharing though. I have to admit, bloging is fun, gee, where does the time go??!!

I love blogging. I have had a website posted (and still do) for years that has my contact information on it.

I feel perfectly safe in the knowledge that, because I choose to focus only on people who will use the information for good, I do not attract the kinds of people who would use it otherwise into my experience.

Some people are very focused in their blogs like we are and others use them to spill out every thought they have. I prefer the magical, positive and creative blogs like this and bid the others a kind thanks but no thanks.

Blessings =D
