So Kim Kardashian finally decided to share this adorable first picture of Saint West on her blog today and it made me think about how easily people (including myself) post pictures of our children on social media. Although Kim waited a while to post the first picture of Saint, I’m sure there will be many more posts to come – as she did and continues to do with photos of North.
Most parents out there honestly believe that their child is the cutest thing alive and with social media being so prominent these days, it’s so easy for parents to go a bit “overboard” with posting pictures of their children on Social Media! Some of your friends and followers on social media may find your posts adorable, while others will cringe each time you post.
As a Blogger Mom, I am probably guilty of over-sharenting and I find that when I post pictures of my children on my social media accounts, its usually the same people who like or comment on them. The other hundreds of friends and followers are probably rolling their eyes while scrolling and thinking… OMG not another pic.
Well in all honesty… I don’t really care about what they thinking. Its MY social media accounts and they are MY kids. Instead of me posting countless pictures of my #ootd and #ootn, I’m posting pictures of my two little munchkins who are my everything right now!
I honestly love seeing photos of other mums with their little families. I enjoy seeing the happiness and joy which their kids bring them just like mine do.
(Facebook and Instagram are also really great to store photos. It’s the easiest places to find memories by the way)
Each to their own!
What are your thoughts on over-sharenting?
I’d love to hear.
