Freaks that troll the internet will find your kid based on the pictures you've posted, and lure them in by knowing their name.
First off, no one is coming after your kid. Geez. And if all it took was knowing a kid's name, all a child-snatcher would have to do is yell "Hey, Emily!" at a group of girls and someone would turn their head. For boys, just muffle the first consonant of Aidan and you've got Braden, Caden, Jaden, and Hayden covered, which is like 90% of them. Frankly if this happened to Audrey, I would have to stifle my initial reaction which would be "Hurray! She answered to her name!!"
You don't want future employers to be able to find embarrassing stuff about them...remember, the Internet is forever.
I can't get past the thought of Audrey having a prospective employer. Woo hoo! I did good! Unless one of the job requirements is that she perform a flawless Hokey Pokey, I think we're OK. Anyway, by the time that Audrey hits the job market, I'm convinced that autism will be considered a big plus. People will be playing it up on their resumes as much as if they were valedictorian, because it will mean that they can do readin', writin', and 'rithmetic which will be more than you can say for all of the poor unfortunate typical kids that are the products of our dying educational system.
And anyway, the internet is not really forever. I don't know what blog program you're using, but mine has a big fat Delete button for each post. Didn't the mother of all mother bloggers, Dooce, purge her blog of all her early rants against the Mormon church so that they wouldn't
You shouldn't overexpose your children.
Who are you, Angelina Jolie? We've all got like 12 readers apiece. Get over yourself.
It's not fair to your kids to violate their privacy when they don't have a say in the matter.
OK, so this one does hit home. Buzzkill. The situation that gives me the most pause is thinking of Audrey in a few years when she is (hopefully) mainstreamed into general ed and the kids are past the Kumbaya phase of childhood and start going at each other Lord of the Flies-style. Which is probably not as far away as I think. Could a future classmate find this blog and use some of the content against her? Sure, it could happen. Do I have the mental faculties to think beyond one hour from now let alone 3 years from now? No, not even on a good day.
Of course, the first time that I even get a whiff of anything like that happening, I would yank this baby down like a prom dress. My fantasy is that Audrey would then start her own blog called, "Typical Classmates That Are Douchebags" where we could post pictures of her tormentors with accompanying stories and personal nuggets about them. But more likely, she'll start a blog called "Let's See How You Like It, Mom" where she makes like The Hoff's daughter and posts embarrassing videos of me...
