blog thoughts

we're in the midst of lots of sickness. it's humbling at best.

I have a few thoughts I'd like to address.

First - A few have commented recently who have never commented. So great. It's been awesome. Especially Katy who also had Graves' with her third child. Incredibly helpful. That is why I love people I don't know reading, more information. I'm curious to know those who read my blog. If you have never commented. Please do. And it can't be anonymous!

Second, my blog was never intended to be something that people were drawn to. It was just a way for me to write my thoughts, happenings, and ideas. Then it turned into a sharing place (favorite link friday) - a broader way to share with friends near and far those ideas I thought were good. But again, never a grand scale blog.

This leads me to address a few comments that have been left annoymously about the improvement of my blog. First, if you have an idea about how you think I can improve, leave your idea and include your name. Your idea may be good enough for me to look into, who knows. Second, remember that my main purpose is not to draw large amounts of people. It's to share about my life with family and friends.

okay - now let me know who you are! thanks!

Hi Kate! I love your blog! I don't always comment, but I do enjoy reading what you have to say. You have a way at looking at and appreciating daily life with your children that I don't think I've found yet, even though my children are older than yours. You inspire me to be a better mom and daughter of God.

Just a thought about those "blog improvement" comments - if you have your blog set so search engines can find it, it's possible those are just spam comments, automatically placed on blogs for whatever bizarre purpose. Judging by the grammar, that would be my guess. I had one that was in Chinese and provided a link to an unpleasant site, so count your lucky stars that they're anonymous! I'd just delete them and not worry about it. Your blog is just fine how it is!

I think you're perfect just the way you are....and you know I'm here too (I kind of check it obsessively). Love you, love the blog.

I love stumbling upon blogs where people honestly talk about their lives. That is what draws me to yours. I can't imagine anyone criticizing. Life is too short to take time to tear people down. If you don't like something, move along. I'm sorry you had to deal with that. I would rather read your thoughts on family and God than any news site. Thanks for putting yourself out there.

Kate- I like reading your blog because I like keeping up with you in a small way & because it makes me feel "normal" about lots of mom emotions I ride up & down! :) Thanks for being so transparent.
Love, Ginny
P.S. Benji has asthma too, & I SOOOOO feel your pain. It's so freaky sometimes, especially with a cold! Hang in there.
