oh my, thank you so much for all of the love sent my way! i am honestly shocked and so grateful for every comment and email.

i received a few emails after my last post of links to other flickr accounts that people were pretending to be me, there were 4 in total. i don't understand for a minute why someone would want to do that??? but i am happy that all 4 have been closed down. i should also say that the flickr accounts weren't threatening to my girls, just creepy and a bit eye opening.

i have loved this whole weird blogging world so much. i cant believe i have kept this little blog up for 3 and a half years. i am sad to see how much the whole blogging community is changing and so i think i need to change things around here just to be a little more careful.

i have to admit, i don't like private blogs... i never, ever wanted to go private.

but, i am going to start a new blog, all about my girls and family and home and neighborhood that is going to be private, please leave your email in the comments section of this post and really, if i dont know you, that's okay... i will just feel better about knowing who is looking. i am kind of excited because there are a lot of things i want to write about but don't because i know it is so public, so that is one good thing... i guess.

i am also going to keep this blog going and just make it more about me, photography, food, decorating. i promise to be really good about posting. once a day is my goal!? so stick around because things wont be too different around here... :) (the cyber smiley is for you sister, and leah too)

so start sending your emails my way!

You don't know me... But I too love your blog. Please consider me for your private blog ;) kibler78@hotmail.com
I have really injoyed your inspiration ;)

Helen Melon said...

You don't know me!! And I can't really say I know you either. Although when i first found your blog last month, I went back to the very first post, and it's really funny, because it was like I was watching your girls growing up. It's amazing how much little people can grow over the years..

I would love to be able to continue to see all the cute little things your girls do, and all the darling things you guys do, as a family. Please consider me for your private blog.

I'm guessing you are going to get bombarded by people you don't know. I am Leah's sister, Emily, she showed me your blog years ago and since then I've been enjoying your cute family. It's nice to put faces to names I've heard great things about for years and plus, an Auntie's got to see one of her nephew's girlfriends. :)

Hi Amy,

I love your blog. I save your blog and Ann's blog for last when I'm going through my google reader, save the best for last. I love reading about your girls- they so remind me of my sister and myself when we were little.

I'm so sorry this has happened to you!

kg said...

I'm another 'don't know me' am a friend of Leah's family (grew up in Oregon). Your work is inspiring and I am sorry anyone (or four!) would go to lengths to impersonate. Weird.

I'm sorry you have to go private, but I would too if I was you. You'll have more freedom that way. I'm also another stranger, but I'd love to be able to read if you'll add me! :)

Marostica said...

Hey Amy,
Met you a few times when going to BYU at a few parties here and there, oh years ago it seems. I was good friends with Becky Perry, who is the one that led me to your blog. I just love your photography, and get little inspirations from the trips, activities, and decor choices you post. Hope you can keep your own identity this way.

Take care-

Jenni K said...

so ya, you don't know me either...but I have loved reading your blog and all of your creative yet simple ideas. I'd love to keep reading! Your pictures are beautiful and inspiring!
jennihatch at gmail dot com

Kyle and Lesley said...

I'm also a stranger... and found your blog somehow last year while I was in grad school in England (I spent a lot of time blog hopping instead of studying).

It was seeing your images that inspired me to get into photography. You are my absolute favorite photographer and I adore your style and the way that you capture images of your daughters. Now that I have my own daughter, I aspire (and fail miserably) to look for unique ways to capture the every day with beauty as you do. I've been meaning to write and tell you thanks for a while now, so thanks for being so wonderful!

You are an inspiration to me.

I did the same thing you are doing- made our family blog private and started a new blog http://www.kensingtonblue.com . Seems to work well for us. You can only have 100 registered readers, but if you have room I'd love to be invited! My advice is to invite close friends and family first and then friends of friends (so probably not people like me- sad for people like me) and don't max out the 100 because invariably friends and fam will find you and want to be added. Then you'll have to start kicking random people off so that you have room for people you actually know. If you do have spots for strangers you can always ask for resumes, 500 word essays, and references- right. I love knowing exactly who has access to our blog.

We'd love to add you to our reader list if you're interested too.

Hi.. you also don't know me. I love looking at your blog I just had a daughter myself so I love reading about what you are up to. I also have a private blog account (to many weird comments- actually about my daughter, and she's 4 months old!) so I don't think you are crazy at all for wanting to going private.

I would love to continue reading your blog. My email is

Amy said...

Hi Amy! My email is missfrancis1978@yahoo.com
I found you through Tamar. Thanks for considering making your private blog, semi private!
It really is fun to read. I also think its a good decision to head this way; when you have a bazillion readers I think you have to.

Shannon said...

You don't know me either, but I have been following your blog for awhile now. I have loved your pictures, you thoughts, you cute new house. I would love to be apart of your new blog, but since you had no idea that I was even here, I would understand if you thought it to be creepy.

Way to keep your family safe!

Hello Lindello said...

Hey. Its your twin house in Duluth, MN. I have to be on your list because I need to see the rest of your house! And of course I think you are absolutely adorable. I promise I wont be a creep! I think its smart your going private.

Krissy said...

Hi Amy,
I too have so enjoyed your blog - and your sisters (found you girls when Lou & Lee was featured on Etsy). It's unfortunate all the stalking that you too have had to deal with. Hopefully going private will eliminate it.
My email is krissy_isenberg@hotmail.com.

Melissa said...

Creepy stalkers! I guess thats one good reason for me to be thankful I don't have your talent! (although I can't think of any other reasons, your photos are beautiful!) I was in a ward with Amy Dover and found ya through her blog. I've since moved, but still love your photos. If you have enough invites, I'd love to join in! Melissa[at]hancockfam.com

Anyway...my blogger email is talklegaldocs@hotmail.com and of course I need an invite!

Thanks!

johnandmonplyer@msn.com

Dear Amy:

I am so sorry that you were impersonated by others. I can't even imagine why anyone would want to do that. I find your blog very inspiring and love your decorating and photographic style. I believe I found your blog through Etsy. I'd love if you would consider me for your private blog, but understand if you are hesitant to do so since we've never formally been introduced.

Good luck in all of your endeavors,

Blessings and Light,

i am so happy to see so many of you want to come over to my new blog!

don't worry about the 100 limit thing that blogger has, i am looking to move over to another site that will (hopefully) let me have as many as i want.

still trying to figure it all out!

so happy to meet you all :) (yes, another cyber smiley... i like them ann and leah, so what)

cindy said...

You don't know me either, but I've been loving your blog ever since your sister in law Amy was featured on Design Mom and I linked on to yours. I ordered one of your beautiful prints from Italy, and I've been wanting to email you and order another print from you of a picture you posted from your Greece trip, but didn't include in your etsy shop. Anyway, your photography is beautiful, and I love your decorating. That's just sad about the whole flickr account thing, but better for you to protect your family.
