QUESTION

Eve donated, and asked:
"Hey, just sent you a gift card. My question for tonight: How can we avoid feeling invaded in our privacy when having a YouTube blog and giving everybody our Twitter names, Facebook, etc.? I'm a teacher and am a bit worried about starting a vlog, but I’ve been wanting to for so long. Your advice?"
