Blog fairy...elf...whatever...

MySpace vs. Facebook.

Blogger vs. Wordpress

Each site has their pros and cons. I wanted to try a Wordpress blog. I really like the fact that you can have multiple pages within a site, which I don't think Blogger has, but then Wordpress doesn't seem to allow for all the decorating options like Blogger does. Still, I wanted to try it.

My family draws names for Christmas so that everyone doesn't buy for everyone. We've been doing it for years and, for us, it has always worked out really well. If there are 3 people in your family, you buy for 3 people.

Somehow, long, long ago, I ended up as the person collecting all the wish lists. (I probably took over someone else's job...) Back in the pre-historic/pre-computer days we had cute little forms and people would mail them to me and I'd make copies for everyone and mail them back. Sound like a hassle? It was. It made for some mighty fat envelopes too.

Then email was born and that made life SO much easier on this weary Christmas elf. But now, we're moving beyond that. I wanted to try a Wordpress blog that would not require a lot of time and energy, so I decided to create one for the family Christmas wish lists. I'm actually pretty happy that I came up with this idea. Have a visit. Click on the picture above.

Wow! Talk about the ultimate Christmas gift-giving family tool! Makes my family's little system seem prehistoric. =)
