For example, when I wrote the last post, I was at my parents' house. I was all excited about the news I had just read about Mercy, and said something to my dad about it, mentioning this blog. After I said it, I realized, "Ohhhh shoot! I mention my family in my paper! PLEASE let him forget what I just said!" Fortunately, since my dad hates computers, and doesn't really care about anything I have to say about Mercy (well, along with a lot of other subjects), I think I'm pretty safe. But the point is, I don't want to have to worry about being so careful about mentioning the blog, especially when I'm using it to try and get the word out about important issues! If my name isn't on it...even if I mention it in passing, no one will be able to find it using my name.
I'm still trying to come up with something good, but if you'd like to be informed if/when I do change names (as the URL will be changing as well), let me know!
Also, aside from my blog housekeeping stuff, I just found out that Mercy Australia is now CLOSED DOWN!!! Totally made my day. So I wrote about it on facebook and put a whole bunch of links up. =D
GREAT WORK, everyone who contributed to making this happen!! It's so great to hear. And it gives me hope that we can do the same in the U.S., and I want to do my part in making it happen.
It's a good day. =D
