I decided to do the blog thing for several reasons:
1. I wanted a place where both Mike and I could participate
(though to be honest I'll be doing most, if not all, of the posting and what not)
2. I wanted a place where my family feels comfortable visiting (Not like myspace/facebook etc.)
3. I belong to the LDS church and we are encouraged to share our beliefs and testimonies.
4. I've seen friends blogs and am way jealous.
5. Apparently, I just can't get enough attention.
