Are you a blogger who heavily censors what you post? Or are you more of a Stephanie Klein kind of blogger who seems to share every subject, no matter how private?
I've always felt I was a little in between those two extremes. I do post about my children, Ashley especially, and do share a lot of information about medical conditions and treatments. It seems, though, that one of my Facebook friends thinks I share too much. There are, of course, extenutating circumstances.
Ashley's birthmother located me on Facebook and made me her friend. We had communicated very sporadically in the past via email, but with Facebook status updates, information flows a bit more freely.
Last Saturday night, I worded my Facebook status as "Deborah is worried that Ashley is getting sick again." I received the following message from Ashley's birthmother about that status:
I appreciate that you keep us (me and your friends) posted about Ashley's condition, but please be kind enough from this point on to avoid posting this information on the public walls for everyone to see. I think it is inappropriate that Ashley's medical problems and conditions are being made public when this should, in all fairness, remain a private matter. Whenever I see a post like this it really upsets me and makes me cry very hard, and ruins my days. I already hold enough guilt inside of me to last me a lifetime, and it's something I have to deal with. Please be a little more considerate when posting on Facebook...
Of course, this was the same person whose status update that same night said, "I let (boyfriend) take pictures of my butt...YUMMY!"
All this makes me wonder who should really be censoring what...
