Hey, Look...

I'm starting to question the ethics of writing about my daughter online for my own and others' amusement.  Here's why:  She's turning 2 next week.  I can remember my 2nd birthday.  Thus, Livy, to my sick mind, has become her own sentient being and, as such, deserves to live without having her experiences mediated by her sarcastic mother for the delight of a small but awesome audience.  So, the question now is whether to continue this blog without Livy as its focus, whether to make the blog private and continue posting our family and Livy's development for a select group of family and friends, or whether to shut the whole damn thing down and focus on living my life rather than editing it into (hopefully) charming nuggets.

So that's where things are here.  I love the idea of blogging, and I love the attention it demands garners, but this little project can't continue as it currently stands.  So bear with me while I figure this out.  Or don't, seeing as how the figuring might end in a big, fat goose egg.

SLB has just informed me that it's "kinda meta" to blog about blogging.  I have informed him that he is "kinda awesome."  And so are you, kind readers.  So are you.

I always say keep blogging, but if you are worried about unknown internet traffic, go private. Also, every year you should turn your blog into a bound book. I think that Olivia will someday love to read how her mother saw her and their world together. She is your daughter, I think she would quite enjoy your writing and endless jackassery.

Keept the blog. Ditch the ethics.

First of all... you remember your 2nd birthday?!? Second... you can make this biz private for family and friends, but please share the password with spouses-of-doves so that I might continue reading.
