So...

I deleted my Facebook. Josh has always hated Facebook and pretty much dislikes it anytime I am on it. That is one reason.

Second, as much as I say it doesn't consume me...it does take a lot...a lot...a lot of time...little minutes here and there add up.

 Third...I want to get back into blogging. My sister made her blog into a book a while back and I was looking through it. It is so awesome to be able to journal and store it online and then have a nice, clean, stream-lined book at the end of it. BUT I must say...the blogging world is lame lately. I do blog for myself and to keep a record...but some posts are for readers and for people to respond to! That isn't happening lately for me. I miss the network we all had...say 3 years ago. Lot of comments and fun stuff being shared and people participating. Yes, we are all busy...but if you all delete Facebook too we can get back to the good stuff;)

Whether or not I have comments (you are still reading...Google says so) I am going to try and get back into blogging. I have already missed too much of documenting our little life. I do not want it to replace the time I am saving from Facebook...but if I can do once a month that will be good for memories sake. ...and Walter's.

I think not having people comment on my blog is one of the main reasons why I'm not as good about posting as I used to be. It's just not as much fun when no one takes the time to give feedback, and I'm one of the offenders too! I'll try to be better about comments when I'm on different blogs. I will be sad not to see you on FB though!

I agree with you! Facebook takes a lot of time- but it seems like it is the only way to keep up with a lot of friends..since they all ditched their blogs ;( I love your posts....I will be your faithful blog friend haha.

I agree Laura! I actually don't spend very much time on facebook. I do on the other hand have three kids. Two more than I did three years ago. I think that is where my lack of blogging started. But I really miss it. I think it is even worse when your blog is private. Then people really don't look. Not that that is the reason I do it. I really do it for my family. But yes it is nice to have people care! If anything I will make the time for you!! I really have missed your blogging. You really always make things brighter! And thank you for the cute christmas card!! Carter is way too cute for his own good! Love ya!!!!

Copycat! Haha ;-) good for you. I felt the same way about deleting mine. It was just a waste of time and I like blogs better. :)

I agree! I miss people's comments too. I'm going to try and do better as well!

Whoa! Hey! Why did you not run this life changing event past me before you made such a drastic change? Now who will comment on my statuses? haha No, I want to get back into blogging too. The last one I did was so therapeutic and really helped remind why I love it. I also love reading people's blogs, but I am just always on Facebook instead when I use the internet.

I wondered why I had one less friend on facebook today!

Looking forward to more blog updates from you.

I'm so touched that you remembered dear Walter. I fully support your decision. Don't go back!

So many times I find myself not leaving comments on someones blog because I'm about to say the same thing everyone else has already said before me. And then I remember how much I love getting comments regardless of how long or short or clever they may be. Thank you for the one you sent me! So for the record, I love reading your blog.
