To blog or not to blog

Last week I wrote a post regarding the uncertainty of the future of this blog. I've done a lot of thinking about it over the last few days and this is the conclusion I've come to...the blog will continue, but in edited form.

If you look up a definition of blog you'll find it is a web log...or an online journal of sorts. Most of the blogs out there, including those I read regularly, are not at all similar to ours. They are more or less the poster's random thoughts of the day...ranging widely from politics to religion to philosophical views (okay, maybe there are some similarities!). I hoped ours could be a little different, and I started this one as a means for our family and friends to keep up with us without me having to send multiple emails, photos, etc. Basically, it's a lazy approach for me...post once and EVERYONE reads the same thing. BUT because of the more personal nature of our blog, I see the need for more precaution in what I post. As time allows, I will go back and edit or delete some of my archived posts. You won't see as many photos on here, but I can't resist an occasional picture or two. Details may be purposefully vague at times, and I will probably edit our "Profile" as well.

So, if you enjoy keeping up with us via this format, rest assured you still can. It will just be a little different from now on.
