Time for a Change
I have to admit, I never thought Facebook would become what it is today. I often am terribly disappointed in the content friends and family deem appropriate and have been considering deleting my account in favor of a family blog for sometime. While I'm not completely ready to walk away from Facebook, I figured I would at least explore the blogging world that seems to be the newest trend in social media.
I mentioned the idea to Ashley a week or so ago and she said that she too had been toying with the idea of starting a blog but was struggling to come up with a creative blog name and template that she liked. As it turns out, her struggles became our struggle and coming up with a name we both agreed on was at least as difficult as naming our first child. I offered up a few dozen names, all of which were quickly shot down. "Growing Up Gilles" was Ashley's idea and like most things Gilles, I do what she says (and I liked it too).
While the name was important to us, we figure the content is more important to our readers. I figure most of what we blog about will be about our family, the farm, and our menagerie, but I won't limit us to just that. We have lots of other stuff to talk about, too!
