Being Careful


Dear blogging buddies:

Hope you've had a great weekend so far! It's been a busy one for us, very hectic but relaxing at the same time.

I found out this afternoon that some of our family members have just experienced "identity theft" and they're having to replace credit cards, debit cards, etc.

Also, with the increased dangers inherent in giving out too much information over the internet, I have decided to change the way I do my blogging. I'm not going to include photos of my immediate family members any longer. Over the next few weeks I will delete pictures that already have been posted.

As well, I have changed my profile on this blog, deleting our home town and other identifying information.

I'm sure you understand my reason for doing this. I'm still committed to posting on a regular basis. As you know, my 2nd blogiversary is coming up next month and my 1,000th post will happen even before then.

Thanks for your regular visits to PILGRIM SCRIBBLINGS and for your encouraging words and comments.

May the Lord be gracious to you and give you His peace!

In His embrace,



  1. I've always been nervous of that very thing. That's why I've gone to extreme lengths to keep myself anonymous.

    I enjoy your blog and I wish you well in protecting your identity.

  2. i think that is a good idea ... that is why i try to be general in my remarks too ... and only use photo's that my family has ok'd - and then it is in my most general of ways ...

    blessings on you!

  3. Dear David..This is a good warning. I have always been too free with information although Bernie and I don't use our computer for banking and very rarely do we order anything from sites using our credit card....from Terry

  4. So sorry to hear the bad news of the identity theft! How awful! So glad you are still posting.

    I will continue to drop in!
