Violated?

I don't know if y'all noticed the new live feed on the sidebar. I think its really fun to watch as different people from around the country pop on and pop off the blog. It blows me away, and I've spent WAY too much time watching it today (hopefully that will wear off a bit :)). Anyway, I've hesitated about whether to add this or not because, while I think it's amazing, I don't want all of you feeling violated. However, once I added a picture of my child's naked hiney-butt to the blog, I figured it might to OK to know what city you live in :) Obviously, this doesn't tell me who you are, but I could see where it might take away some of the...mystery. So, I just wanted to ask if any of you had an opinion.

(BTW, that's a picture of Jeremiah and Pace leaving to take their walk on the beach last weekend. Something about how big he is, how little she is, and how they're both walking off so purposefully is adorable to me.)

I am so violated... and I will never be back! :)

I only feel violated when I "stalk" blogs of people I don't know and I look over there and it says "Welcome______" then I read really quick and vanish. As if they would really care that I was reading! I can't add it to mine... I'd sit there all day and watch too!

I think its great! I just spent about 5 minutes watching it myself and couldn't believe how informative it was! Not violated at ALL!

how cool is that!? Of course I'm one that thinks a chip should be put in our kids so that we know where they are at all times! (just kidding) sort of.

I personally don't like my blog site linked with my city as I do keep that private. I know that is a bit crazy, but oh well.

Greetings from Oviedo, Fl! I am a friend of Joy J. and I am also guilty for "stalking" your blog only because your words always seem to touch my spirit. You definitely have a gift for writing and inspiring. It appears that you are a Godly mother whom aims to raise two Godly little girls, be a Godly wife, and share your testimony with others alike. Thank you for being so transparent and know that you are being prayed for in Oviedo, FL! Elaina B.

Just wanted to say that the post about your girls staying with their Papa was one of my very favorites! So sweet, I laughed and laughed! I know they had a GREAT time. BTW, it was really great to see you!

I love to check out where people are reading my blog from ... I even followed a link the other day and found that I am on another person's blog roll?!?! that was weird.

just know that if you see someone from alpharetta, ga ... it's probably me. i check ya daily.

LOVE the update on the Seattle thoughts -- my hubby would say the EXACT same thing about me on vacation.
*(I'm the one who is the middle of 3 girls ... and went to highschool with B Johnson....)

Hi Abby,

I've been reading your blog for a few months - I think I found you from The Stickler's blog, which I found from Urban Grace. Anyway, I thought I'd post and say hi. Your girls are so cute and you write very well - it's all so entertaining and interesting!

For some reason, the live feed says I'm from Methuen, MA, which I'm not - but maybe it says that because that's the nearest city?

Love your blog -and from what I can tell, it looks like you're a great mom! :)

Take care,
Louisa
