The decision has been made...

I've debated about this for quite some, but I've finally made up my mind. I'm going private with this blog. After yet another very nasty comment (the worst of many), I've decided that enough is enough. The whole reason I started this blog, and have continued it, is to keep our friends and family up to date on what's happening in our lives. It is not intended to be some live forum for people to get their nastiness out. I think its quite pathetic to be honest. Especially when people don't have enough gall to even sign their name... and I know for certain that no one is actually named 'anonymous.' So there you have it. Private I shall go.

So for those of you who have been reading my blog, unbeknownst to me, and would like to continue reading it, please just leave a comment and let me know your email address. I'd be happy to send you the invitation. Or if you're uncomfortable with doing that, just email me at bonnieandjon@yahoo.ca. I'll be using that email strictly for this purpose.
I do have most of my reader's emails but if you're unsure of that, just drop me a line to be sure. Thanks and I look forward to hearing from you!

I'll definitely email you Amber. I think the problem is that its supposed to be .ca not .com. I made the adjustment on my post. But I'll email you anyway. Thanks!

I'm sad that this is the reason that you have to go private. Some people have no class or heart. It is okay to go private, not as many people read but atleast you know you are protecting your family. I love you and hope everything works out.

Oh Bonnie, I'm so sorry you've had to deal with mean comments. I've had some come my way as well, and it's the reason I barely blog anymore.
I've been tempted to make a private blog, but I'm afraid my Grandparents won't be able to figure out how to log in. Is it pretty easy?

Rick and Sandy said...

U Rick & I both follow your blog; you already know we're one of you many "cheerleaders" and you have our home email address already; I'll choose not to post it here since you have an unsavoury anonymous reader.

Thanks, A Sandy.

I did not know I already had a google account!! Thanks for including us. I do end up reading several people's blogs every once in awhile - that's how I know what is happening in your lives - well, mostly, I guess.
You and Jon (and Callie, hopefully) will love your time in Thailand. It is at a great time. If we do not see you before the trip we wish you God's richest blessings and we'll pray for your health, safety and wisdom as you digest all that you see (and eat!!)
