As many of you may know, our family is moving to Colorado at the end of the school year. I have an issue that I need some help with.
The issue is my blog. When we move, I want to start a new blog for my friends, family and in-laws so that I can post pictures of the kids and what we're doing, since both sets of grandparents are in AZ. I already have a blogger address reserved for this.
The problem is, I don't know what to do about this blog. You see, there are some things I've written here that I would not necessarily want my family or other certain people to see. I think I've mentioned that my mom sometimes bugs the crap out of me with her ultra right-wing Christianism, and I'm thinking that might hurt her feelings.
I think I've also talked about my husband's brother and sister, and I'm guessing that they might be offended if they went back and read about how I call them losers. My point is, there are some things on here that I wouldn't want certain people to read.
So, I'm thinking these are my choices, and granted this wouldn't happen until the end of May, but for some reason it's bugging me now:
1. Make this blog friends only, continue to post whatever I want here, and make the new one public. The problem with this is that I know of a lot of people who read my blog but never comment. I think a lot of them come here via Jen's blog (Hi Susan!), and I wouldn't want to leave them out, but I don't know who all of them are.
2. Go back through this blog and delete anything I ever said that might offend someone. Wow, that sounds time-consuming.
3. Leave this one as it is, and only tell family, in-laws, etc about the new blog. The danger there is that someone who reads I Miss My Sanity leaves a comment on the new blog, then someone follows the link back to here, and ... yeah.
4. End this blog in May and just have everyone move with me to a new blog, where I will have to carefully censor myself so I don't offend anyone. Bleh.
I have no idea what to do. Any comments, thoughts or ideas appreciated.
