Competing Priorities

Once again, I find myself wanting to apologize for not being here more often. But, the truth is that I'm here all the time. The only problem is that I can't seem to find the time to seek out the interesting tid-bits or news that make for good posts. My dedication to all things related to kids safety online is still as strong as ever, but my ability to stay on top of my responsibility as a blogger is seriously challenged by competing priorities. But then it dawned on me. In a nutshell, those everyday distractions that get in the way is exactly the point of my blog! We all want to protect our kids. We want them to be safe and secure. And whenever we can, we are there to ensure they are out of harm's way. But we all have other competing priorities that make it difficult to be on the alert every moment of every day. It's easy to loose track of a 3 year old at the park when you're trying to calm a crying 1 year old. It's easy to loose track of what your kids are watching on television when you're busy making pb&j sandwiches for lunch. It's easy to miss that mouse click that leads to a porn site when you're untangling a doll's hair from the modem jack. It's at these brief moments when our kids are most vulnerable, and we must do our best to either be there, or make sure the protections are in place so we can safely look away. I may not be able to blog every day, but you can be sure that I will always be on the lookout for my children's best interests. When it comes to competing priorities, my kids come first! And for that reason, I won't apologize if I can't find the time to blog more often!
