Creepy comments from strangers have caused several of my friends to take their blogs private in recent weeks. At first I thought, "Phew! We haven't had any wierdos stopping by!". But then it occurred to me that it's possible any creeps coming through have just been smart enough to keep the comments to themselves.
Deciding I'd rather play it safe than sorry, I plan to make this blog private in the next few days. For those unfamiliar, this means only friends & family who've received an invitation will be allowed to keep up with Windy City Westy's. Hopefully this will keep any crazys (or at least crazys we don't know:) from peering into our lives (especially the lives of the kiddos). Please let me know if you'd like an invite by: leaving a comment here or on facebook, sending me an email, text, call, etc.
And if if you're like me, and enjoy periodically checking in on more distant acquaintances' blogs every now & then, don't worry, this isn't like an ultra-exclusive wedding or swanky club invite list. Really, don't hesitate to shout 'count me in'. Even if we haven't talked in years. As long as I know you (or my sister, or mom, or friend does:)... and you're not a criminal... you'll be welcome at this private party.
