New Home

So – I am moved over here.  Things are not quite all here yet.  All the slideshows are missing but they are password protected posts anyway.  I will restore those as links soon.  More on passwords below.

So – yes – most of the picture-heavy posts are protected.  There are plenty that are not, but it will narrow down the selection of publicly viewable images.  My Picasaweb is locked down and so you can only view pictures if you have the link to the image.  Some images still have missing image icons and I am working on moving them over.

As I have been going through old posts I realize how much I appreciate reading what was going on years ago – so I am planning on upping my blogging for my own sake.  

So, about the password.  It is the same password for most protected posts – once you put it in one you should be able to see others without re-entering it. If you would like the password and you are on Facebook with me, just message me for it.  If you are not, go to the “About” tab on this page and send me a message.  If I don’t know you and you have never commented here please leave a detailed message for me, or better yet, a link to your own blog.  

I will still have plenty of non-password protected posts – I am just putting passwords on ones with bunches of pictures to keep whomever is stealing the pictures of my girls from getting any more to use on their blog.  I want to keep blogging about my life and my grief to whomever wants to read.

People Suck

So – for a while now I have been dealing with the unauthorized use of a picture I took of Nathan, looking out a window.  The legitimate blog, The Big Picture, of Boston.com asked me to include the picture for a childhood cancer awareness post.  I agreed but people then stole the picture and someone has even created a meme and attributed a quote and attached a url onto that photo.  I see it pop up onto my Facebook feed regularly and it is not a good feeling.  It is not regarded somehow as a generic childhood cancer photo for free use.  It is not.

Then I received a message on Facebook that pictures from here and Picasaweb and such are being used in someone else’s blog.  I have not hear back where that might be.  I suspect the person who sent me the message was using a pseudonym.  If that person is reading this – I really would appreciate more information.  I have since made a bunch of things private and unpublished a bunch of posts here.  I hope to make things public again at some point.  If I make this blog private I will give you a warning and ability to log in.

If any of you reading this know of other uses of Nathan’s photo – please let me know.
