... because my life is important enough to be documented in post sized portions.
hi cortney, thanks for your comment! i thought you had an interesting perspective! my husband and i never intended for our blog to get the kind of traffic it's received. we started it just to keep in touch with family out west and post photos, videos, stories etc for them to see! we're still private people, and we actually have thought about taking our blog to "private" many times over the past months as its gained popularity. but i haven't done that mainly because i have met such great people through the blogging community and have gained such great inspiration and knowledge from it. to be clear, we do not go about our days only doing things we think would make great blog posts... we are very real regular people and i think that would make for a sad life. i think it could be easy to get sucked in (similar to reality tv like you mentioned) to the blogging world and take it to that level, but i don't know why anyone would want to. i blog about my hard and sad days just as i do my happy ones, it's 100% me on the blog. my husband and i really enjoy going out and living life and we love documenting it as a sort of journal for our future children, etc. if along the way others care to take a look, i think that is great. i'd love to contribute and give back to the many bloggers in the community who encourage and inspire me through their blogs. anyway, thanks for the comment. i really thought it was interesting. if you have any other thoughts on it all feel free to email me. firstname.lastname@example.org!
I have started a blog. Tomorrow's entry will be dedicated to Kate Harding.
