Put a lid on it

Ladies, I’m blown away by your comments on yesterday's post. Truly blown away. I loved how passionate you all got on the topic and not only that, how passionate and committed you are for your husbands! I love it!

I have so much to learn from all of you. You guys are a well spring of knowledge!

I realize I’m not the best example all the time. I get perturbed sometimes, way too easily. I mumble under my breath backhanded comments like a pro, and I judge. I say I don’t but I do..ok, I say I do. I work hard not to and fight the urge but it happens.

If there’s one thing that I need to learn that hasn’t quite caught on, that the wiser Emily refrains from, is sharing stories about co workers. And I’ll add on; random people I meet who may or may not have my cell phone number. Because there is that slight possibility, regardless of how much you don’t talk about your blog, they could one day find it.

How crappy would that be if they stumbled upon a post and realized it was about them? Pretty crappy.

Tuesday night I had a bit of a scare that I think darn near set me straight. I had 2 new followers on instagram. First thought was, great! new followers make me smile. But once I saw who they were I got a bit confused how they found me.

They are both in real life acquaintances…that I never shared I was on instagram, let alone my name on there. One, I was ok with, but the other…well the other I’ve kinda been openly sharing certain stories about this week…

*hangs head in shame*

I swear, I’m a horrible example. Never take after me.

Who knew you could open your contacts in Instagram and find who has an account??! I sure didn’t! Until Tuesday. I can only hope no one feels the need to look through my old photos showing my blog.

I’ve pretty much learned my lesson. It goes back to gossiping without using names, its still gossiping. I hate when I’m guilty of the things I blog about saying I’m not going to do.

Feel free to chastise me vehemently.

So transparent Emily! Love it. We all are a work in progress. Sometimes I REALLY want to write on my blog about certain things but to many people that know me follow... So *this is a secret* I have a blog that no one know who it is. I use initials like for me would only be L... I go there to vent. I have set to private so no one reads it. But it helps to get my thoughts out there :)

When I seen this picture I thought "The many roads we travel" (the many many lessons we learn!)

Have a great day!

I am amazed how people have access to information though countless social media. The other I posted a status update of FB about my dad's health and some random women commented. Privacy settings and all people find a way to....ummmm stalk you!!

I guess the lesson is that nothing is really private in cyberspace and that if you cant say something nice...say nothing!!

Happy birthday month gorgeous!!

This comment you posted, "I swear, I’m a horrible example. Never take after me." I disagree! There are a lot of ways we should take after you! I could name a million, but that would take forever. You are honest and you do learn from your mistakes! Someone should stop being so hard on herself :0)

I'm horrible with captions, but I will say I have done that before. I have done it with my boss which was even more scary! I thought for sure she had found my blog once. But you're right It's wrong even if we don't know them, I'm guilty of that too. Darn :(

Hahaha, busted!! A few real life people have found me on Instagram and then found my blog. Eeks. I just don't like real life people knowing about my blog unless I chose to tell them.

I know this is an older post but I'm trying to catch up on my reading so cut me a little slack here. :)

I only have a handful of real-life people that know about my blog... it makes me uncomfortable for some reason. I'm the same way though, I try not to say bad things about people on here, because you can really NEVER BE TOO SURE who knows about it and reads it.

I've also had some of my real-life friends find me on Instagram. Kinda freaked me out for a minute, but I don't say anything about my blog or link to it so I don't mind as much. I mean, I'm sure my real-life friends are like, "Who in the world are these people she's talking to?!" but whatever haha.
