back in the saddle.


So, taking my blog totally private became such a sore subject with me, (boo-hoo) my husband recommended that I start a new blog without family photos on it.

BINGO!
So, here I am-- and while I might claim to be a great blogger now, taking away the ability to blog with my family photos is like cutting off my right arm. (My private blog is in hiatus for a month or two.) But, I'm not going down without a fight-- even if I have an audience watch me fail at this new task. (Take that you gross pornography blog and your bad link to my cookie recipe!)
.
I'm one that hides behind my photos. I'm an all too visual person, usually skimming whole chapters in books and important papers. (such a slack!) In fact, if I were an outsider looking in, I could easily see myself skimming this whole paragraph even though it might contain some highly important information. Does it? Well, you can be the judge of that! I want to write more in this re-born blog, not that it won't be chock full of luscious photos too.
.
I was debating making a whole new blog address, but I think I still like the ring of this one. I'll let you know!
Thanks for sticking around,
Emily

Glad you are back!

Welcome back! Take that, you porn sickos!

Amanda said...

Yay! I really enjoy your blog, but I have to admit that I enjoy hearing about your family since I have two small children (a 1-year-old and almost 3-year-old) of my own...I can relate and I love your ideas because they are almost always cheap and so much fun. In fact I did do the silhouette project! Anyway, glad to hear you'll still have a public blog! :)

Jennifer said...

I'm happy to hear you've decided to keep up a public blog to inspire us all with your creativity, little momma. =)

Laura said...

Glad you're back, and I'm sorry we won't be seeing the adorable photos you took of your boys. They are so cute, and I'll miss their expressions!

Kate said...

Yay! I'm excited!

Blissful Babe said...

You know I would follow you anywhere! I would miss you terribly if you were to have poofed permanently or something. We totally couldn't have that!

This blog is totally cute, too. It still says Em all over it! Literally!
MUAHAHA.

Glad you're up to the challenge. I'll miss your boy tutorials--but I'm sure you'll try new things you wouldn't have otherwise. Hope that helps! Your words are worth the read, and I'm looking forward to the pics too!

Michele said...

I am still new to this whole blogging thing, and I was just starting to find blogs I really loved to read yours being one of them and then poof it was gone. I am so glad you are back in business, I truly hope it works out for you this way. Good luck and happy blogging!

Maria said...

So glad you are back! I need the inspiration...

Nichole said...

I really hope that this works out for you Em! I will miss the updates on the family though. Let me know when you do start up your family one again. Cause I was/am an avid reader.
I am glad to see that you are hoping to write more in your blog though, I am a reading kind of girl and will look at the pictures with great appreciation but love the words that can't always be seen in the pictures. The back stories or the right afters. There is beauty in those moments to me.
Good luck with this, I will still be an avid reader.

Adrienne said...

I HOPE YOU HAVE SOOOOOME PICTURES. :D I love seeing them all... but I GUESS I can do without SOME if necessary!

At least pictures of foods... Promise me that much!

Astrid said...

I love, love, love your blog! I'm glad you're not going away. I loved seeing photos of your family and of your adventures but I completely understand needing to keep that private.

Shanna said...

I missed what happened?! You have me worried. How did you find out you'd been linked???

I've often considered going completely anon also...

Tamie said...

that truly is a shame b/c it ihas been such a delight getting to know your cute little family--even though i can't even say that i really know you at all....y got that, right? :)
but since i had to just redo my whole facebook account---i'm extremely sympathetic to you

meg said...

I am just like you with the picutres and "skimming". Must be why I like your blog so much. :)
Look fwd to whatever you bring. Will miss the cute family photo's but c'est la vie. I keep my family update blog private too b/c it's all about my kids so I understand.

Laura said...

So glad you are still here! Sorry people are creeps!!!

tara @ kidz said...

Stick with it girl. The blogosphere just wouldn't be the same without you in it!

Schluter said...

Yay I'm glad you are sticking around! I love reading your blog!

jen said...

so glad to see you back.

Lisa said...

I love the name of your blog and I would hate for you to change it. It will be hard to read your posts without the photos. You always tell the best stories and incorporate the photos so nicely.

Rhea said...

Glad you're still around, but disappointed you never talk back.
