Wow! It's been a long while since I've posted (it's Jill, by the way). Joe has done an amazing job with updating the blog regularly and posting a million pictures of and stories about Olive and Poppy. He's done such a great job, in fact, that our readers sometimes forget that the man behind this whole operation is really Joe.
That being said, I don't think it's fair to maintain the blog with its current design - you know - orange and pink and, well, let's be honest, girly.
Over the next few days/weeks/months (I'm a slacker -- please keep that in mind), I'm going to be working on redesigning the blog so that it's not so feminine. We might even change the name (this is where the "don't get nervous" part comes in). If we do, don't worry - the web address will not change. You'll still have access to all of the old posts. The worst thing that might happen is that you'll have to add a new feed to Google Reader (if you read the blog that way, and if you don't just ignore that last sentence. For you, nothing will change. Stop crying. You will not have to learn anything new on the computer or the internet to continue reading our blog. Don't worry. You can even continue to call it "the blogspot" if that makes you happy. Everything will be OK.).
So, changes are on the way. We'd love to hear if you have any suggestions for us. Is there anything on the blog that you don't like? Is there something you'd like to see? Is there anything that you'd miss if it disappeared? Let us know. Although this blog is about the girls (and updated by Joe), the blog is for YOU - the people who read it (or just look at the pictures and ignore the writing - but if you're one of those, you're probably not reading this).
Thanks to everyone who reads (or just looks at) our blog. We love sharing our little lovelies with you and we hope that you'll continue reading (or looking), despite the changes that are coming.
