Dear blog,

I love you and I hate you at the same time.

I love how you hold so many of our precious memories and images that I'm sure would have already escaped my swiss-cheese mind.  And I love how our friends and family can look at you, wherever they are, to see what we've been up to.

But I also hate the stress of keeping you up.  Sometimes I dream of the days before you and photoshop were around and wonder what I did with all that disposable time. 
And I hate to say it, but my life would be so much easier without you.  Undocumented, but easier.

What to do?

I'm so torn.

Don't give it up!! I love your blog. I know where you are coming from, but when I look back even 6 months and read what I have documented, I wish I had started sooner. Have your kids do some posts...that would save you time & may be really funny:)

You can't stop. Journals are all time consuming but necessary. Also, Your oldest daughter looks just like you. I swear she could be a Nicole clone.

Steph said...

I'm in support of your blogging too!

Just do when you can. And perhaps post 'raw' unedited pics sometimes for timesaving. :)

I love your blog!

My life would be incomplete without the Mason Family Blog. Don't tease us like you're going to quit, or I'm going to walk over there and kick you in the shin. Or break your other toe.

Please don't give up blogging! You have such a beautiful family and it just tickles me to see the latest pics of Caroline!

Marianne said...

I'm still stalking you over here in Orange County. Your blog cracks me up...one of my favorites. Don't go :). That being said....you have six kids! so nobody is going to think you're slacking if you cut back.

Tracy said...

Oh please keep blogging...I love your stories and pics. Blog when you can though...there is no rule that says you need to have a post every day...or every other for that matter. If you can blog once or twice a week than do it...other things should come first, but the way you are documenting your life is wonderful (plus some of us love the peek into your life!)

Jill Ison said...

p.s.- i don't really like nike though.

The Scotts said...

I'm also not sure how I found your blog but I think it is great! I'm sure it is a lot of work, but someday you will be so glad that you have all the trips and pictures documented (for you to remember more thoroughly)!

I've never commented on your blog, and you don't know me, but if it sways your thoughts at all, I love reading your blog. I found it through Shawni's, who I also don't know. ;) It would make me sad to see you stop blogging, as yours is one of my favorites. Thanks for sharing your sweet stories.
