Should I...or shouldn't I?

I have been trying to decide if I should take the plunge and make my blog private. I know that there are some crazy folks out there and the idea has tempted me more than once! The only problem is that there are quite a few people out there checking in to see how Travis is, and I definitely don't want you friends/blog stalkers to miss out on any updates! I have ran into a lot of people who have said that they are checking our blog to get updates. I don't want you people to miss out on any new things that may come up. I know that this has been a great way to reconnect with a lot of you and we appreciate you checking in on the fam.

So if you fit into the above category, friend/blog stalker/or someone we sort of know...please let us know so we can decide what to do about the above situation.

On a totally different note: Swinging thing = Pendulum, don't I feel silly!

UPDATE: Today at church quite a few people told me they have been reading my blog, so for now I am just going to let the crazies read on! Any of you learkers, leave me a comment and let me know who you are!

I hope you consider us friends and not stalkers... But, I can understand what you mean. You could always make it private and just give the people you want to see it your password... I know sometimes I try to be careful of what I post... because who knows who looks at it. But, again I am sure many people love and care about your family and just want to check in to see if their prayers are working.... You have the cutest little family! Sometimes you just have to do what you have to do!!! Take Care

So my Hayley FRIEND!!! I hope that I'm your friend. I love reading your blogs and I love getting the info on travis, then I know what to pray more for!!! Thanks for keeping us all updated!!!!!! I know there are crazieZ out there but I hope they are leaving us all alone!!!!!

I agree...there are definatly crazies out there and I also hope they are leaving us all alone! I have had so much fun discovering old friends, so I have been greatful that I was allowed to look at their blog and see how they have been doing. I know others are like that and I'm sure they are glad to be able to see how you guys are doing and to check in on Travis. But when you have such beautiful little girls I guess you can never be too careful!

I have been wondering about the same thing since it seems like alot of people are making theirs private but I also like finding other people's blog and I'm to chicken to ask for an invitaion when they are already private. This is a tough call.

Don't feel dumb about the pendulum, as I was reading your post I too was trying to think of what it was called! I LOVE your new look on your blog...so cute! I don't blame you for wanting it private. Ours was at the beginning and then we changed it so that everyone could see..mainly my family who are computer illiterate like me and didn't know how to get in to it! ANyway, I have a friend that has hers private but her password and username to get in are their last name and her maiden name so that as long as you know that, you can get in. (something to consider?) good luck!

I love your new header, so so cute!!! I too have thought about making our blog private, but I have been able to get into contact with so many people, that if I hadn't had our blog they probably wouldn't have found us, and vise versa. I know it's a toss up. But, if you do decide to go private, don't forget to include us in! I love it!

The Wolfley Family said...

This is a dilemma that I've been having lately. First of all, you know that I don't know how to do it! Second, I really don't want to keep those I know from finding me. What to do? However, the other day I got a post in Portugese! I clearly do not know this person and it's a bit creepy!
Side note-- I just love the new look on your blog. Beautiful!

Morrell's said...

I also have been thinking about this! It is so fun to be able to click on everyones blogs, but you also want to be safe! You'll have to let us know what you want to do!

Cody & Ashley Godfrey said...

So do you really think the crazies are checking us out? Yikes!! I've thought about it and thought NAH, now I'm wondering if I should make mine private. This is quite a dilemma... Just know that I expect an invite if yours goes private. Dinner? What are the plans? Also, I really need something done to my hair. Are you almost ready for a trade? It's Brad Paisley on the 24th and I'm sure hoping for some sassy hair!!!

Darin and Joanna said...

That is something I have thought about as well. I decided that for now I would leave mine public but I have tried to get rid of last names as much as I could and do not list where we live. That way I figure it would be pretty hard for a crazy person to track us down. I do like reading your blog though---it's fun to catch up with those I haven't seen in a long time! Cute blog by the way---I really want to learn how to change mine into something more scrappy--where did you learn how?

Haueter Photography said...

I worry about the same thing! It's a tough choice, but if you do make it private, you better include me. I really think that all us hair school girls need to get together for lunch. Hope all is well. I love the new header on your blog. It is so cute!

Tracy, Courtney & Peyton said...

I agree it is scary about the crazies, but then it's hard for people to find you too! I wouldn't worry too much about it. Love your new blog, I really need to change mine, I need to make the time!! Sorry it was so caotic today at my house!

Trisha said...

You know I've always been a stalker and want to continue as long as I'm invited! Let me know if having the boys is going to be too much on Wednesday, okay?

Katie said...

I would make it private. I've heard about and seen some pretty freaky comments on other's blogs from randoms... there are definately wierdos out there. Just post asking for everyone's emails who want to be invited.

Michelle said...

Hay,
I know a lot of people from work read your blog. It helps keep them up to date with Travis without having to ask him whats up.

Melissa Eskelson said...

Hayley, I know you don't know me, but I use to work with your husband. I had no idea about your situation until the other day. Someone from Travis's work forwarded a link to your blog so I could get an update. I hope you don't make it private, as I too, check it for the latest. I think the world of your husband and enjoyed the time I worked with him. I hope you don't mind me checking in. We pray for you, him and hope you know how much we care. You have a beautiful family!

Lance and Mandy said...

Okay, Fine, I AM A Learker. I love your sweet blog. It has made me cry, it has made me laugh, it has made me think a little harder about the person that I need to be. I am a sister to Crystal. I am a cousin to Sherisse. She has been such an example of enduring with faith. Your daughters are beautiful, I have 3 girls and they are such a strength to their mother. My girls have been and currently go to north park so we get to see that cute secretary also. If you decide to put a password on your blog, you will still be in my prayers. Mandy
