Andy Beal points to an article published at the Los Angeles Times named Oops, Mom Googled Me. The story is about how a mom decided to Google her daughter. What she found was an article from her daughter named "9 Tips For Surviving The Holidays At Your Republican Parents Home" (you can see the article by scrolling down on this page).
You can see from that article how her parents would be upset with her, so upset that they stopped talking to her. Why? Well, her father reasoned, "If you don't want her to write about you, don't talk to her, because that's what writers do. They write down what we say."
So, let this be a lesson to all you writers and bloggers, be careful, your parents are now on the internet and searching for what you're doing!
