Personal Info on the internet....Be careful

Here is a message from my friend Chris about internet stalkers or just sickos who pray on our naivety towards internet security. I don't want to scare anyone but it made me go change a few things on my blog to help make it a lil safer for me and my fellow friends who visit me.
Girls it is soooo important when blogging, or posting photos that you don't give out too personal information.. Eg suburbs where you live, schools that your children attend..Local, shops..number plates..These are things people can track you with.or track your kids if you are posting photos of them..I'm not saying don't post just please please be careful and wary of what you show..these sights , my own included and your personal blogs are open for ALL to see and you don't know everyone that is watching.. there are unfriendly or overfriendly people out there!"
So girls I have taken my birthday list down and taken away my email addy, town I live in off of my profile info. I am about to go edit a few things in my blog content too....So if you notice any changes, it is me who is doing them! This has really made me think about internet safety when I am blogging...Thanks Chris for bringing it to my notice. Just the slap in the face that I needed! Off to fix up some more things on my blog. Thanks for visiting my blog and hope this makes you more aware than I was 1 hour ago. Luv Shaz xoxo


  1. You are so right. I try to keep my personal information to a minimum because of this. It is happening out there so best to safeguard yourself.

  2. This is so true. Before I used to put everything then after some time somebody kept on calling me already
