@lulubuttons......I can't even believe you are asking this question. You lot sound like high school kids with all this drama.

Most people that post on facebook, twitter, instagram etc are just attention seeking. Do your husband and yourself a favour, and don't give the ex any more ammunition.

Get off social media...PERIOD!

But, it could happen. With blogs come message forums and trolls. From what I have seen used in court the comments sections of blogs are where people screw up the most. Not in the blog post but, how they handle trolls. It could be the ex that trolls you, her family or friends. They will try to get you to say something in response. Why give anyone a forum like this to upset you and provide evidence that could be used against the father of the child?

Trolls. The trolls will come.

We have a "live free from harassment" clause in the SA but not sure if I would need to do something in addition to this.
That clause is useless. Once you put yourself online you are not free from harassment. Ever. Welcome to the internet. Welcome to trolls.

Good Luck!

My mommy blog ruined my life | New York Post

Quote:
Many of the women are stay-at-home mothers hoping to monetize their blogs: In exchange for free stuff and experiences, or more formal paid-sponsorship agreements, they enthuse about a company’s product on their blogs and social-media platforms. Some of them make as much as they would at a traditional job outside the home.
I wouldn't recommend getting sucked into the marketing scam that is "mommy blogging".

An excellent read:

Dear Mommy Blogger Josi Denise

You’re writing in an inauthentic voice about an unoriginal subject, worse if sprinkled with horrible grammar and spelling, and you are contributing nothing to the world but static noise.

...

Quit because your mommy blog fucking sucks. And it’s not going to get better. There are probably a dozen things you are actually good at.

Find what you love, and what you do better than anyone else, and do that.

Blogs are useless unless you actually have something important to say. If this is just to share info on cool stuff with people who like you, use facebook.

If youre trying to get famous with a blog then I encourage you to watch the west wing episode with Lemon Lymon and see how ridiculous it is to be someone who thought you were cool posting on the internet. Translation: dont do it because thats ridiculous and stupid.

Youre not Martha Stewart or Oprah. No one cares and youll just be ridiculed.

we are all part of the divorce statistics on this site. Actually in some ways this forum could be social media. We support each other to some degree and have our own trolls. We don't post about our day to day lives but our separation/divorce and other issues.

I use facebook to keep up with my family that is flung all over Canada. My settings are set at private so only my friends and family can see stuff. Social media does have its uses. If it wasn't for my old school friend on facebook it never would of found out about my current job. So it does have its uses. I went to making an extra 25k a year due to my contact on facebook.
