As I said earlier, I was sick and going back to bed after my previous blog edition. That did not prevent me from getting a phone call from an upset relative of mine. After listening to what she/he had to say, I have decided that my blog must come to an end effective immediately. Let me explain why and offer my apologies to anyone whom I may have offended with my blog.
As you know, I wrote about birth announcements, engagement and wedding announcements. NEVER ONCE did I place that info on my blog UNTIL it was published in The Leoti Standard. I believe that passing something like that out BEFORE it has been formally announced in a periodical is just plain wrong. I also mentioned various events that were happening in our family's lives. Tonight, I was scorned for doing so. The person who called believed that much of my information is a breach of privacy to those concerned and nothing less or more than gossip. I am so very sorry for infringing on anyone's privacy.
Of course, I NEVER would have made comments about who was dating who, who was getting a divorce, etc. That would have been way over the limit as far as I was concerned. In the past, my family and I have been extremely hurt by things that people said about us that were about as untrue as anything could ever be. I sincerely never wanted to do the same thing to anyone else.
Since my writings have become detrimental to some, I believe that it is time for me to simply bow out. I cannot tell you how much I have enjoyed writing to you every day! What a thrill it has been to me to receive your email, comments, phone calls and visits on the street about what you thought of what I wrote. I honestly felt like I was making a POSITIVE difference. Now, I find out that it was negative instead.
I am sorry to the ones whom I have upset!
Good-bye, my family and friends.
