I've been thinking about it. My family is pretty close, about an hor away. Extended family however, they are all over the place. It would definately be easier/cheaper for me to keep everyone updated via a blog.
I've been blogging for years about my struggle with infertility. It was great to have a place friends and family could go so I didn't have to say "no, it didn't work" to everyone. Now that we are expecting (hooray!!!) I'm still blogging! Not only is it theraputic for me but it also has brought me lots of virtual friends in fellow bloggers. I also like the benefit of recording my journey for my daughter to see one day. My blog is in my sig.
