Hey guys! I hope everyone is having a great week. I’ve written a lot about pop-culture entertainment lately, so today I thought I would change it up a little bit by talking about what you post online.
Especially when you’re posting a selfie or picture of yourself. You really have to be careful! Today I thought I’d share with y’all a story from personal experience that really made me think about what I put out there for everyone to see.
I used to blog strictly about modesty, outfit inspiration, and an occasional random post. It was fun doing a lot of outfit pictures!
Except for that one random day when I had worn a new outfit I liked and decided to blog about it. (I remember exactly what it looked like. XD)
One of my first commenters was a man telling me that I had a “very hot look” going on. His username was also pretty inappropriate and suggestive. (Note: I was only 15!)
This freaked me out enough that I seriously considered deleting my blog and stopping altogether. I instead opted to making it private for a few weeks, checking everything I had posted of myself, and deleting a few pictures that could be questionable.
However, I decided to delete that post after looking at it a second time.
“Well,” I thought to myself. “My top is a little tight and my skirt is a little shorter than what I’d usually wear. Plus, I am wearing boots with higher heels than usual.”
Each individual item would have probably looked fine paired with a different article of clothing. Though completely unintentional, the whole finished look wasn’t as modest as I could’ve been.
I want to challenge you to be careful with what you post of yourself.
I’m going to dive deeper into this in part 2, but for now, just remember that everything you put out there is open for anyone to see. <3.
(Also, I’m definitely NOT saying that that guy was justified in making an inappropriate comment about me! I just used that example for when I decided to be more careful about posting pictures. <3.)
Have a blessed day!
