Thank you so much to everyone who weighed in about blog subscriptions. I signed up for Bloglines at the end of last week, and am loving it so far. I shudder to think of the time I've spent clicking around to see if a blog had been updated. It's so nice to have them all in one place! I still have some kinks to work through, but I like being able to click directly to the post so I can leave a comment. I wish I'd done this sooner, but am glad I jumped on the bandwagon. Thanks again for your tips and opinions!
I also appreciate all your ideas on photo storage. I need to think some more about which options will be best for our family, but I'm thankful for the inspiration you provided!
