Yes, things have been quiet on here lately partly because I've spent every spare minute unpacking and working on meeting my deadline but there's also been something else going on.
I've had to make an extremely difficult decision about the direction of this blog, its content and the impact it could have on the safety of my children. I'll write more about it when I'm not feeling quite as emotional about it but what I can tell you for sure is that I won't be posting any pictures on here of my rad little dudes and stories that include them will have to be more vague than they have been. I still have a few to take down but I've spent the evening deleting much of the kid-related content. For those who want some of the stories, let me know and I'll send them to you.
This might be good news for those of you who weren't into that part of the blog but for me it's sad. It's sad that we live in a world, that I'm trying to raise optimistic children in an environment where people can use outlets like this to prey on them. I still think writing about mothering is important and plan to continue that as soon as I figure out how to do it without compromising their safety. I appreciate your understanding. The small bright spot, I suppose, is that when I started writing this for my family and friends, and myself, I never dreamed it would grow to where I'd have to think about something like this.
I am considering password-protecting the site but I think this way is better. Your thoughts?
