For a long time, I have struggled with trying to decide if my “mommy blog” is harmful or helpful in my role as a mother. 

On one hand, my blog has been an incredible gift; it has led me to make connections that have allowed me to work from home, it has helped me find inspiring women that I aspire to be like when I “grow up,” and it has helped me have some amazing opportunities for my family. (Free diapers, anyone?)

But on the other hand, there are a lot of unanswered questions about blogging, especially because I am writing so often about my own children. Am I putting my children in danger? Will someone steal our pictures as their own? Are my children going to read my words someday and hate me for exposing them to the world?
