I've been thinking about my blog and I've decided I need to go ahead and make it a private blog. This is kind of sad but also necessary for a couple reasons. If you want to continue reading my blog, then I will have to have your email address to add you to my "Reader List". Blogger lets you accept 100 readers. Please leave a comment if you want to be added to the list. I don't mind adding people I don't know personally, but I do want to know your intentions for reading my blog are positive. I read LOTS of peoples blogs I don't know personally so trust me I will not think you are a stalker. But if you like reading about our family and my sometimes empassioned opinions then I'm happy to have you. I've really backed off writing about controversial things in part because I don't really have the time or energy to devote to responding to people's comments and it gives me anxiety so if I write things that you disagree with frequently, I'd recommend you don't continue reading b/c I will not be going back and forth with comments once I switch over. Ok, that being said, please leave me a comment if you want to keep reading with your email OR email me at firstname.lastname@example.org! I will make it private on Sunday, May 2 to give people a few days.
