As I mentioned in a blog before I am going to sprinkle my regular postings with Family postings. My extended family on my Father's side has a monthly newsletter that they have been keeping up for many many years, longer than I've been alive. It is their way and now our way we stay as connected to each other's lifes as we can. I write about this now because, it's the end of the month and that's the deadline to submit an article to the newsletter to update the family of our personal and family doings for the past month or months depending on when we submitted our last article entry. Yes there are personal blogs and facebook to stay connected the newsletter gives this huge family a one stop shop to see what we are all up to without scouring through the many other distractions that blogs and facebbok can bring. Family is with you forever keep them close. Something I forgot to mention is that usually my immediate family helps me proof read my articles that I submit to the extended family newsletter.

Family Proclamation- not an activities post

I statred my blog and posting about activities because I like to share information, also because I have a family that I like to do things with. Doing my blog reminds me of weekly activities that I want to do with my kids, my spouse, and my friends. So there's a blog that is celebrating family and the Family Proclamation that the LDS church has published to the world. So to be a part of the celebration I am to blog about family and link the other blog's link to my blog. http://beinglds.blogspot.com/

Not everyone has to link to the blog or even like this, but this is my blog so I get to do with it what I want. I will still post weekly activities, but I will have some family ones mingled inbetween some activity posts. If you don't want to read it, don't and know it will be labeled Family so you can skip it. Please don't leave any comments on my posts if they are negative in nature, if there are any comments that draw away from the openness of my blog I will delete the comment and have to privatize my blog and I don't want to do that because I think everyone likes to know about Free activities. I am aware people are allowed to have freedom of speech on open forums, but people also need to be respectful of others. I've seen that on Facebook people can be disrepctful, this is why I'm writing these boundaries. On the other hand if you do like this and decide to participate mention my name when you post a comment on the other blog, then I can get more entries. I get a lot of information when I enter contests, one reason I enter and the other reason is I like to get free things.
