blogging wars

Does anyone else have this problem? Adam and I can’t seem to come to an agreement on what the ‘real’ purpose of our blog is. There is so much I want to say about fertility and adoption and parenting adopted kids. I am not sure that it belongs on our fun-family-for-the-grandmas blog. That’s what Adam envisions our family blog being.

And to be fair, he does not mind that I write heavier posts, and he certainly does not dictate what I write (we all know how far that would get him). And yet, I feel myself holding back, censoring, and sometimes not writing because I feel uncomfortable.

And all this to say that I am considering reopening our adoption blog. In fact, writing this has made up my mind! :)

  1. Rachel,
    I have enjoyed following your blog as it has been one of the most honest. I have been praying for your family for the last year. God has truly blessed your family. Thank you for sharing it with everyone.

  2. I liked that blog as well. I appreciate your honesty about the fertility and adoption options. It comforts me, and I hope to one day speak with boldness as you have with some of your posts on infertility and adoption issues…so keep posting, please. If you start the adoption blog will you please post the link. Thanks! Wendi Wood, AP of 3 Colombian kiddos!

  3. Your adoption blog is a great resource to a lot of people. I am sure you have no idea how many people actually read. But I know people that you don’t know, that have referred to it when talking to me about infertility. I think that it serves a purpose.

    I love the family blog too, of course! Keep those photos coming.

  4. Let’s be fair here – there is no war. I just don’t need to have a “purpose” for our blog, other than to talk about whatever it is we do, think, etc. I love my wife’s writing – she’s really good at putting into words what others can only feel in their hearts and minds. But, I think that doesn’t have to be the “purpose.” If that comes along the way, that’s great! Love you honey! more y more y more!

  5. “There is no war.” Ahem! Let’s carefully consider the fact that my hubby just posted a comment, which he never does–even when I beg! :) :) :)

  6. I love you sister and know you well enough to know that you loved having that blog, to let out your feelings whether they be heavy topics or light.
    I love both the blogs and read them both. Love you!
