Family Bloggers Sought! June 30, 2011 -- Updated Jan 11, 2012

What's different?
For starters, our newest blogs are hosted by Blogger (not our private Google Sites). To learn more about Blogger and starting your own free blog, visit (or take tour).  To stay on top of new features for Blogger, check out Blogger Buzz. After receiving your suggestions (read more), we have the opportunity to convert to a new domain name (updates here and here).    

Limited Space
We now have public Blogs for expanded visibility and easier access (FAQ Blogs). Unlike our private web sites, however, a limited number of relatives may post Blogs. To be fair, we are accepting blog authors on a first-come, first-served basis. Since you may wish to post to a public Blog using an anonymous nickname, please understand we are not automatically creating Blogger editing/access for our those who signed-up for our private family blogs.
We encourage your participation, and hope you contribute content. To learn more about our Blogger settings, click here. For general Blogger privacy information, click here; our Privacy Practices are here

Guest View
Another difference is the Blogger guest view. While Blogger Invitees need to sign-in with their Google Account to become a Blog member, they may view the Blog as a guest once for 30 days after we send the invitation. Before expiration of the 30 days, you confirm/accept invitation. At end of 30 days, you may request a temporary extension, however, if we have a waiting list, we may offer the space to another relative. The guest view is a convenient way to check-out the Blog before joining. 

How to Join
If you wish to join, it's easy to use our Contact Form. Feel free to add questions/comments below any of our posts or "Email the author." 

Thank you for reading. We hope to hear from you!
