For some time now I have wanted to discontinue our blog. I don't really enjoy doing it anymore and at times actually found it to be somewhat distracting. I've done it to keep family and friends up to date with what we are doing. Several months ago, I discontinued using facebook and the experience has been very liberating.
Recently someone who we do not care to share information with left an unkind comment on our blog which I deleted immediately. I am well aware that I can privatize our blog, restrict the comments or not allow comments at all and I would have done that but this incident has given me a good reason to discontinue the blog which I really wanted to do anyway.
It is too bad that there are a few people in the world who through their own self-centered, selfish behavior ruin things for others. Personally I am accustomed to dealing with such people as this is what I did for a living and it doesn't affect me but it is sad to those who get enjoyment out of reading our blog.
Just a point of clarification... the individual who recently left the unkind comment is not the only person who we do not want seeing our blog. Kim and I desire to protect our privacy and we will remain in touch with our family and friends via phone calls and email.
