I have a weight loss blog on Tumblr on which I post very personal things about my weight loss, my beliefs, my thoughts, everything. It's very personal, yet somehow they found out I have one.
They found it once and confronted me about it because they didn't like what I was posting. I made a brand new blog and they STILL managed to find it, and now they are practically disowning me because they're Christian and I'm not and I make that very clear on my blog.
I changed my URL and no longer source my pictures, so what else can I do to prevent them from finding my blog? Please, I just want a place I can express my thoughts and feelings to others without my parents judging me for it. They are always trying to stick their noses in my private life, and I don't know what else I can do. Please help.
I installed Kapersky anti-virus program to protect my computer, and I use Cloud System Booster to clean all cookies and any other computer trace.
If you make your thoughts and feelings publicly available then anyone can read it, and that includes your parents. If there are people you'd rather didn't read your posts then don't put them on the Internet is all I can suggest. Keep them saved on your own computer, and if you're really paranoid consider using TrueCrypt to make an encrypted folder to store them in.
As others have said, you could always keep a diary, however I understand that there's a certain something about putting your feelings out there for everyone to see, and the ability for you to share your thoughts and get comments back and such like.
You could always try writing under a nom de plume? Maybe avoid pictures of yourself and don't given any contact details that will lead them to you?
I don;t know all that much technical stuff so this is all I can suggest
