Dear Daisy, It is your first day at school...

Why you won't be seeing Daisy over on YouTube

Daisy has now started school and since then it has been playing on my mind a little about sharing so much of her life online. If you watch my YouTube channel you will have noticed that at the back end of last years family style videos all but stopped and they were focused more around parenting as a whole, tips, tricks, naming videos etc and not so many vlogs. I will be honest and put it out there that I just didn't feel so comfortable sharing so much of her when it is possible that anyone could stumble across them and it could be mentioned at school and actually she may be none the wiser about the content that is out there.



It was also becoming more difficult to hide things such as school details as uniform is thrown about all over the place, correspondence from school and of course she is now at an age where she talks, and doesn't stop. I didn't want to miss editing something out of a video for it to catch up with us and to be in a situation where I embarrass her or worse still, put her at any risk.

You will still see her appear in videos when we are travelling because I want her to talk about those things, share her experiences and what she been up to and learnt but day to day vlogs will be very minimal. You will also still see her appear on my Instagram and Facebook in some way but perhaps not as much as she previously has been. We shall see.

What are your thoughts about bloggers and their children? There surely has to be a line where once crossed it is breaching their privacy? I don't know, I am in a strange place at the moment considering where my content will lead this year and how I will still ensure she is represented (for my memories not anybody elses and so she still feels included!) in some way. So watch this space!

If you have any ideas, creativity or practicality then please do share. I am always open to ideas and always open for a discussion...
