On daily blogging….

I don’t like it.

It’s not that I mind the act of blogging daily, I don’t. I obviously just do what I have time for — pictures and video come just as frequently, cute stories and links fill the other days when I have less time.

But I feel like it cheapens the experience, for readers anyway. At the risk of sounding over-confident, I feel like when I posted in the past it was (usually) worthwhile reading. Now, it’s just another day, another blog entry.

It’s like when you vacation to the same place. Other than Walt Disney World, where there is more to see than you’ll EVER accomplish no matter how often you go (and a complete transformation from “real life” when you get there) :), repeated trips to the same place risk making said place lose its charm.

Thoughts? Be honest now! I have no problem a) looking longingly toward December, when National Blog Posting Month is over or b) quitting this daily nonsense altoghether, if it’s for good reason.



  1. Well, I know I’d read each post if you posted them every day, but I’d hate for you to do it if you didn’t like it. Besides, it’s got to be impossible trying to find something for each day. 😉

  2. I love reading your updates. It reminds me of all of the wonderful things I am experiencing with Henry and makes me smile! 🙂 But with that said, only do it if you want to. (I am also going to save and keep my blog to have for Henry when he’s older.)

  3. I LOVE reading your posts every day! I check my Google Reader every morning and love finding new posts from you! I think you should keep it up! I aspire to one day post more than 3x a month on our blog…lol!

  4. Well you don’t have to post everyday if you don’t want to but I do know if you put it up there this family will read it. Not that we check for updates alot or anything….;-P

  5. with no life and 125 miles separating our families, i live for the blog! but i will take what i can get. everyone i know is amazed at how much time you have spent journaling about your lives the past year. i know you will never regret having all of this documented for posterity. but i agree with cassi, you don’t want it to become something that you feel is always hanging over your head to get done. kiss the girls for me. love you lots, shelly

  6. I love reading the blogs and seeing the pictures but totally understand if you were tired of doing them. Daily seems like a huge task for anyone, let alone someone with twins! Know that we thoroughly enjoy the ones you write and don’t feel pressured to post daily. They have been a great blessing to everyone that reads them I am sure! You are quite creative and I would think that would take it’s toll to be so creative with everyone. Relax and do them as things come to you. Love ya!

  7. No problem, I’ll keep it up! As I said, I really don’t mind the posting in the slightest… I just didn’t want to run people off because the posts became less interesting with increased frequency! 😛

  8. When did they become less interesting???

  9. If you just post one picture a day, you’re fulfilling NaBloPoMo, but it’s been great seeing so many pictures and videos of your adorable girls.
