Welcome

I decided to start a blog of my own for many reasons.

One reason is that Jim was what I referred to as the "blog hog." Of course, he always wanted me to contribute my thoughts, but I couldn't get it done fast enough for his liking!

Secondly, his blog received a lot of traffic. I was getting uncomfortable with his posting current events and our family news plastered with Laura's pictures for the world to see. We don't live in a world that is safe anymore!

So, now I have a blog that is just by "invite only."

I hope you will continue to read and share.

I like the privacy idea, how did you get it set up to only allow those you invite?

I like it! Send me an email to how you got the invite on there. I have tried several times with no success. Glad you have your own now!

Chad,
If you want to make your blog by invitation only, go to Blogger setting and click on "permissions". It is at the bottom of the page, you can select to invite readers. You then type in their email addresses.

I have thought about this as well. Andrew is not a "blog hog". In fact, he started a blog over a year ago and I think it still just has the first post which was a picture. I am excited as well to see pictures of Laura and what is going on in your family...from your perspective finally! heehee! Oh, thank you for helping me with my Karen Kingsbury question...I went to the library and looked at the options and one kept standing out to me "When Joy Came to Stay". I have read over half of it and I have the urge to read more and finish...which is what I was hoping for. I love to find a book that you can't wait to keep reading. I hope you have a great day!

How to do the invite. This is just an FYI for those like me. You have to update to the new version of blogger. I had not and that is why I could not find the permissions settings. Once you update you can go in change your settings and the permission header is on that page. I had tried several times to change mine over the last few months with much frustration. ={ I finally figured it out yesterday.
