PRIVATE

We're taking the leap- going private. Just so you understand why, here is a quote I got off a friend's blog:

Rob Nickel, a former undercover police sergeant that worked to catch online predators, said this on Oprah about a month ago...

"Number one, you won't find my children on the Internet," Rob says. "A lot of parents will put their kids as infants. Well, I've done so many search warrants where we seize pictures people have downloaded off the Internet of infants and 2- and 3-year-olds for sexual gratification. I would never put my children on the Internet."

If you want to share pictures with your family and friends on social networking sites such as Facebook, Rob says to make sure your security settings are set so that only your friends can view the images. " A lot of people leave it wide open for the whole world to see, and that's probably one of the biggest mistakes. Most social networking sites out there will have security features in place under the privacy setting."

That's enough reason for me. If you want an invite, leave your email address or send me an email and I'll send you an invite. And any silent lurkers please give me your email address for an invite as well. We love blogstalkers, know you're out there, and want to send you an invite, even if we've never met. We'll officially go private one week from today. :)
