Hello everyone. I just wanted to give you a heads up that as of next week, our family blog will be a private blog, no longer available for anyone in the world to view. I'd still love to have all of you read up on the happenings in our lives, but I also want to filter out those people who might try and take advantage of our photos and information. I've been considering this for a long time, and finally a friend sent a link to a friends blog about a bad experience she recently had: she tracked a strange website from her blog and found pictures of her children on a porn website. Scary stuff.
And so, if you'd like to receive an invitation to view our blog, please leave me a comment here or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and be sure to include your email address so that I can send you an invite. Once you receive the invite, you'll have to sign in each time, before viewing our blog, and you will no longer see any of our family updates on your reader page. I know it'll be a little more of a hassle doing it this way, but I'll feel better about life. Thanks, and we hope we don't lose any of our wonderful readers!
