The quest for the best blog!

I don't blog nearly as much as I used to. There are a few reasons for that.
1. Facebook is just much easier and faster to update and post to.
2. Facebook also allows us to not have to worry about anonymous trolls that leave nasty comments!
3. Blogging has become not just a family update place anymore, but a cut throat, "who can have the best article" place!

It seems like so many people are out to have the best blog. I think it stems from a couple blogs we saw in the past that got huge, and they actually made quite a bit of money off their blog. Of course its always great to be able to make money while your staying home with your kids. But I know at least one of those big bloggers that completely fell apart, lost not only her hubby but a lot of money and respect.

I use my blog as my scrapbook. Which is why I'm going to try harder to update more. Not to see how many comments and followers I can get, so I have something to print out and look back on. Of course its always fun when someone says they named their child after Jax, because he inspired them so much. Or they tried something for their child that they saw here and it worked wonders! Or the best one is when someone walks up to you in the grocery store and says, "are you Jaxsons mom? I love your blog, can I just take a peek at him?"
We just want to help raise awareness of the things we love. Adoption, acceptance. Let people know about the struggles of a child with a complicated medical history. And maybe, just maybe, we can do some good!

After all, look how big and beautiful my Ukrainian princess is getting? Can you even imagine if she was still living in an orphanage? I can't even go there! EVERY child in EVERY country deserves a chance!

If you don't have Jax facebook page, I update there more often, with lots of cute princess videos! Heres the link.
