Back to Blogging

But with a difference: This blog is going private. As the boys get older and safety becomes an issue, I don't want their lives public on the world-wide-web. But I still want a place where I can chronicle their adventures 'cause Lord knows I'm still not crafty enough to put together scrapbooks!

I'd also like to post without attracting the cyber trolls who take any opportunity to debate minutia... like if Stephen Colbert is an orthodox Catholic. (Seriously. A Joe Judgmental appeared in my comment box last year, attacking my claim that the host of The Daily Show is Catholic.) And the critiques from Moms trying to validate their own parenting choices. I really couldn't care less if you believe my use of Pampers is single-handedly destroying the planet. But having to expend energy deleting such an eco-rude comment is energy that I'd rather spend driving my non-hybrid to Costco to buy another pallet of disposables, a case of non-compact fluorescent light bulbs and a side of beef.

So if I know you IRL as they type, you'll be getting an invite. If I know you through blogs or message boards well enough that you are a friend of mine on facebook or you are on my blogroll, send me an email or leave a comment below with your email address and I'll put you on the 'list'.

As for the rest of the blogosphere who may have been following the Heroes, I apologize but hope you understand. It's time to reveal the Heroes' true identities... but only to those who already know.

I don't blame you for being cautious. Too many sickos and weirdos with a computer this day and age. And what is so DANGEROUS about them is that they look perfectly norma!

You remind me of my mom when I was a kid:0) She would have taken the same precautionary measures that you are taking.

Gosh, I hope I can still be included. I promise I won't lecture on the evils of disposables. By the way, did you take the ones in my kitchen drawer?
Love, Grandmai
