yes i know, the picture has nothing to do with the post...
Since we decided to make our blog private, we've had a few of you asking why we decided to make the switch, so I'll give a quick explanation. I've been thinking about it for a while, as more and more of my friends go private, wondering if it is something we should do. I never really felt like it was too big of a deal, and that if something happened that made me feel like we should, then I would do it.
Well, last week Charles took an hour from work and went to an internet safety class put on by someone who used to work for the police department and did a lot of work basically hunting down internet pedophiles and things like that. She told some pretty eye opening stories about things that have happened in our sheltered community. Charles came home and told me about some of the things he'd learned and we decided that if we waited for something to happen that made us take our blog private, that would be silly.
I have never been very cautious about what pictures I put up, or what I say about our lives in our blog, and I don't really want to have to be. The whole reason we have it is so that our close friends and family that don't live around us can stay up to date on us, and especially our growing Abigail. This way, we can keep our family in the loop... and keep the crazies out.
